  8. I have to admit that I rarely used the individual instruments and found Analog Lab a better option while still offering all the presets from every instrument. So I held onto Analog Lab and Pigments and sold VC 6 on KVR in the summer. I haven't missed it once. I put the money towards new individual super synths (Dune 3, Rapid, VPS Avenger, Diva, Omnisphere etc) Oh and I also did the same as Aidan for some old Analog flavours with the Cherry Audio offerings (which I really like along with their VM stuff).

  12. well we don't know that yet - if you judge the quality of a plugin solely by the number of presets, and assuming that those numbers are accurate, then yes...it's not an upgrade. ....it might even ben a 'considerable downgrade' . I suspect that isn't the full story. Have you taken a look at the videos and previews ? If I could ever get this stuff licenced then I could find out Incidentally I find AL to be the least useful of the collection .....just my opinion but I never really bother with it much. Prefer the actual emulations. EDIT abacab replied as I was typing and said the exact opposite about AL....just shows you there are as many opinons as there are people

  14. For anyone wanting to get Analog Lab V, here's a direct download link. It's 1.5Gb (AL4 was 1.1Gb in comparison) and took longer than usual due to the traffic load on their website but still better than trying to navigate slowly to the d/l page. https://downloads.arturia.net/products/analoglab-v/soft/Analog_Lab_V__5_0_0_1195.exe

  17. I love my Analog Lab 4 (like others here, I also have Pigments but no real need for the collection). Is there a likely (free?) update coming to Analog Lab, with the presets of the added gear?

  23. I finally managed to download the demo! Have to say it sounds excellent and is great fun to play 👍 Tons of factory patches and every one I have tried sounds well put together with a good combination of High and Low string patterns. I still have a lot left to audition. The .blob file is around 4.2Gb so not huge. I guess it wouldn't satisfy perfectionists or anyone with picky clients (TV, Film etc) but I will certainly put it on my list to pick up when it's in a sale. Anyone else having problems downloading try this link (which support gave me)... https://support.ujam.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012413020-Download-links-for-every-ujam-plug-in-free-trial-full-version- (Useful link to have as it has download links for all of their product demos.)

  24. Both @Craig Anderton and @marled are on the money - how much you cut is really dependent on the material around it. If it's a very sparse arrangement and you're going for a natural sound, you might leave more of the low end in there (getting rid of any problem frequencies like rumbles or proximity effects with certain mics, etc.) but in a dense mix, you can certainly stand to cut both male and female vocals a lot higher and more aggressively because you won't really hear that cut in context, and it'll clean things up considerably in the mix.

  25. I've created a project temple of sorts. I initially set-up and mixed one song in the " album " project - completely. I then saved off a copy of this project and called it " buncha empty tracks ". I then erased all track and automation data and re-saved. For new subsequent projects related to the " album " I simply open the " buncha empty tracks " project and import my new track data. Then immediately save as to the new project name and include the save to audio project folders. I will add or delete a few tracks here and there related to the exact instruments or vocal tracks etc. But generally all of my track effects - Buss effects - folders - Track labels and general order and locations of the tracks and busses are the same, including ( basic pro channel eq's , comps - etc. ) So starting out a new project is basically import the tracks and go. The tracks are already labeled correctly so I simply import the kick to the kick track , have gates already assigned etc. - I treat it essentially the same as saving track templates and folders - without all of the re-assembly required. Another process I do is to create a buss with no effects assigned except maybe an analyzer such as SPAN and keep that handy for playback of any reference mixes or a clean mix buss that isn't processed through the master buss.

  27. Just tried the ProChannel version of all the Softube plugins and it still crashes when added to a track. They updated everything I had (all of Volume 4) but no fixes for the broken ProChannel support. Here's the change log for 2.5.9:

  31. EZDrummer similar to others makes $$ from you buying their midi loops. Like you say, a money pit. If you know how to match midi grooves up to drum software decent midi grooves can be had in much larger quantities and for much less elsewhere. It's basically just changing the mapping. Not sure if EZDrummer is general midi spec. I doubt it because that would be counter productive to their marketing. I bought a whole slew of drum midi a few years ago for much less. You would search this as drum midi. Mapping is usually straight forward. Load midi. Low noted are bass drum, high notes are cymbals. Those in between are either percussion, toms or snare. If you want to avoid mapping just use the paks. If you want to save money buy drum midi from 3rd party and map it. I still have trouble finding beats that match my songs and sometimes find myself playing lame beats in. I'm not really a rocker but was experimenting with the new basic kits. It's a religious Christian Rock tune. I'm not pushing that here, just showing you how the drums sound . I was pretty happy with the drums. Still some work to do on vox and guitars.

  33. So... First i love choirs Second... One way to get choirs sounding tight is to enter the midi for all the parts... Then, make a mix for each part and boost the volume of that part maybe 7 db louder than the other parts... Really significant increase... Now share the recordings with your choir and let them practice to it. This isn't a click track but it will have the same result. They will all be on time and singing with, or harmonizing with, the part they are supposed to be singing. This is tons of fun. It's like standing right next to a really loud singer who is perfect every time... You just do as they do. Now, when you pull the tracks together, you have a great starting place. Everyone is in key and on time. From there, you boost the vocalists that are tighter at any moment, trying to give them all moments to shine. You don't want to pitch correct more than necessary. It can help to have vocalists slightly off and slightly dimmed. It will make the singer nailing it Sound better. As long as the one who is tight is louder, it will be cool. The mix will sound like someone was pointing the Mic from singer to singer, a different Mic for basses and sopranos and altos etc. It will be magic that the Mics focus on the best singer at each moment. In this video, i show how to use melodyne to compare two instruments playing the same part... You can also accept multiple takes from each vocalist. Use panning and gain control to make your virtual choir super big and way cool. Panning different parts differently also helps. Don't be scared to move your parts around on the Sound stage, centering the most important part of the moment in ways that are impractical in a church. The centered part can be a little louder than things panned to the sides because it is coming through two speakers, not one. In lots of choirs I've worked with, they often change the score to simplify it because it is hard to do it right live. They cater to the weakest link often. But with this technique, everyone can sing it right with some practice.

  35. Just like "complete" bundles from others, Total Studio 2 MAX contains what is available when it was released and is not a subscription or similar where new products are added. It is also available currently for pennies on the dollar and has been for months in a huge promotion. The upgrade to AmpliTube 5 SE/5/MAX is not a huge amount and note that even if you paid $179.99 for Total Studio 2 MAX in the promo, you get JamPoints based on the MSRP of the version you bought which can be used to take off an additional up to 30% off the AmpliTube 5 intro pricing.

  36. Quick review of what's included in each: In the Mastering bundle, Firefly is a nice enough bus compressor, Overtone is great mastering EQ, with way useful mid-side functionality, Percolate is utter 5hite (and it's meant to be a track processor, not a bus processor), Oracle is interesting as a character effect reverb (freeware Valhalla SuperMassive is more interesting), but no way I would use it for "mastering," and the freeware bx_cleansweep knocks Focus into the creek. So you're getting 2 plug-ins that are, IMO, useful for "mastering," although in the case of Firefly, SoundSpot's own Cyclone is a much better plug-in. And a mastering bundle without a limiter? C'mon, they're just throwing darts. If they had included Cyclone and Velo 2, it would be worthy of the name "Mastering Bundle." In the Vocal one, Voxbox does what other plug-ins like freeware iZotope Vocal Doubler does, but I do like its GUI. The representation of what it's doing to the stereo field is my favorite. Propane is a mid-side processor, doesn't do anything that freeware Voxengo MSED does and more. Firefly and Oracle, then KINETIK, which is exactly as described, "KINETIK is a Compressor, EQ and Overdrive in one single easy to use plugin." I've tried it on several sources, and it sound good, but at this stage of my development as a mix engineer, I find myself reaching for individual plug-ins moreso than all-in-ones. I wouldn't throw KINETIK on a vocal, not one I wanted to "pop." For EDM booty-moving, yeah. So, 3 worthy plug-ins. Again, "Vocal Bundle?" Voxbox is the only one that fits the description. Is anyone home at SoundSpot? Verdict: unless you specifically want Firefly, KINETIK, and Oracle, or Overtone, pass. The rest are just clutter. Overtone is worth the fiver. (if you need something to qualify for this month's freebies, SoundSpot, as ever, is a good way to do it, and why I know so much about them 😄 but you can pick up a Glitchmachine instead)

  39. Absolutely. I totally score free stuff there all the time. Last 2 freebies were izotope Nectar and Ozone 9 elements for free. Both because I bought a $ 8 VST. I have tried them both but found the Nectar when you use the automatic gizmo made my vocals sound worse. And actually quieter. So I guess that is hit or miss. But it is straight forward to dial in your own settings. It's very subtle which is a good thing. Don't go looking for "wow that sounds 100% better" it's very small difference. Same with Ozone. I slapped it on a few songs in the master buss and the automatic gizmo didn't change a dang thing that I could hear. I think my mix was so perfect it baffled the software

  40. a simulation of the KORG Poly-800 for Windows and Mac. Some new features: Poly-800 MODE for Poly-800 compatibility, Bucket MODE for backwards compatibility, SysEx data import. For those who visit the dev's site for the first time: you will find there a lot of good free synth and effect plugins. https://www.fullbucket.de/music/fury800.html

  41. The tap to find feature is really good. If you build your track In EZD and save it you can go back and time and see where the midi came from so you can go look in those packs for more. Groove Monkee and some others work with the tap to find. Great feature and time saver too.
