    Amplitube Max 50% Off

    IK Multimedia | AmpliTube MAX I only had the basic Amplitube 4 package and decided to upgrade to the full thing for $150. I've not had any time to play around with it but was certainly aware of what it offers as I would occasionally bump into limitations in pedal, effects, and amp selection.

    Sync Licensing [TV, movie, advertising, etc]

    Synchronization rights - Wikipedia I'm interested in making a few songs available but not entirely sure how to go about this. Tunecore and some other companies seem to offer related services for registering, does this in any way make the music available to those looking for it or is this...

    New alt rock concept album... "Missing Pieces"

    Been working on this album off/on in our spare time for almost 3 years. Long time friend and collaborator Scott performed the vocals and wrote all the lyrics, I did everything else. It closely follows Scott's real life engagement and breakup, so it became a living work of art as time...

    Waves PuigChild plugin on sale

    Specials | Waves Several good plugins for cheap. Of particular note, the PuigChild for $49 (usually $99+ when on sale). There's % off coupons to be found as well. I've had the PuigChild for a while now and it does a fantastic job smoothing out mixes as part of my mastering chain. I've used...

    TeamRock in trouble

    Their site is/was riddled with highly intrusive ads and pop-overs. Now we know why - they were desperate to generate revenue. Jobs lost as rock music media firm Team Rock collapses - BBC News

    An in-progress song... "Perfect Woman"

    This is part of a much larger pop-concept album I'm working on with a long time collaborator. I do the music and performance, Scott sings and writes lyrics. Scott still has a few vocal parts he'd like retrack, but I'd say this is close to done. I have a decent handle on the mixing part (this...

    Waves Puigchild

    Fairchild Compressor Plugin: PuigChild 660 & 670 | Waves This is one of the final pieces to my virtual studio puzzle, but I've already accumulated several (analog modeled) compressors recently that add warm, mid eq detail. Looking at the reviews and youtube videos it seems this is one of a few...

    Mastering Chain - what say you?

    Today I spent some youtube time checking out mastering chains that the professionals use. In the past I tinkered with some filters, limiters, compressors, and whatever else I had laying around that I could chain in Soundforge to learn how they all played (or didn't) together. The results were...

    Gear Shaming

    This response got me thinking it might be a topic worthy of discussing at greater length... There seems to be a degree of gear shaming, or at least...

    Free multiband graphic EQ

    Seeing that my other request resulted in finding the exact solution, I'm putting out one more for a plugin that I don't really think is entirely necessary to purchase... [waves has a very nice graphic EQ plugin but even on sale costs $60+] I have clunky tools for doing EQ, and have been...

    Plugin for realtime RMS/peak values

    I recall recently seeing a plugin that allowed for display (meter) realtime RMS and peak values. Figure this meter would be helpful when mastering [I usually compress by ear and verify levels with Soundforge's normalization tool before finalizing]. One of the IK Multimedia plugins I no longer...

    Soundforge 10 + Win 7 x64 Updates = Fail?

    I just noticed something recently changed and has caused many of the Soundforge 10 processes (EQ, chorus for example) to stop working within the program. I click them, nothing happens. I've done a full reinstall (including registry entry removal). Other items like Normalization, etc work...

    Waves - CLA Drums - any good?

    Is this plugin any good? I have the CLA vocals and it's very useful, although the presets are poor IMO (I just manually adjust things to the way I want). On sale for $50 right now.

    New prog/alt rock album "Between the Lines" has always had a special place in my heart, it was the first site online that I started learning the craft of making music with software many years ago. I post this only to share the then --> now progress I've been making. Guest vocals on 3 of these tracks is none other than HR's own...

    HD600 v Focal Spirit Pro v DT770 v Blue Mo-Fi v ATH-M50 - "mixing headphone" review I recently went shopping for new quasi-monitor grade headphones. The Audio Technica ATH-M50 are my current tracking headphones but I still rely on my studio monitors for the final mixing. I don't want or...
