  1. Technically it is a 32 band dynamic EQ but nothing like a traditional dynamic EQ. Brain-dead simple to use. If using for vocals use the hi and low pass to zone in on exact area you need open and leave the low end and hi end where vocals don't live, alone. Check out this vid. He explains the use pretty well.
  2. What was posted in your video is exactly what TrackSpacer does by default. The gent in the video you posted is using Soothe for something I have never used it for. Generally see people use Soothe to reduce harshness. TrackSpace is not like traditional dynamic EQ is the sense of static points like you would see in Ozone, Fabfilter, etc...It is does more than that because Trackspacer creates space in a mix by carving a realtime inverse EQ curve of your instrumental track after analysing the sidechain signal. Both have demo evals so why not try them. If you are looking to make space for vocals, Trackspacer is awesome. Regards
  3. Soothe is great, however, what the gent is describing in that video would be best achieved with TrackSpacer by WaveArts, i.e., making space for vocals by subtly ducking the instrumental track based on the vocal frequencies. $59 for TrackSpacer on PluginBoutique vs $200 for Soothe. I have both of these tools but use TrackSpacer for making space for vocals or lead instruments. Soothe is more of an overall tamer. Because digital recordings can be brittle and often harsh vs analogue or tape, Soothe does a great job taming that harshness. I often use it on vocals, guitars, cymbals, strings... anything that is either harsh or can become harsh with the buildup of multiple parts. They are very different tools but TrackSpacer is made to do exactly what is being shown in the video posted by OP. Hope this helps. Regards
  4. Bat, I remember this one, this mix is much more in your face than previous version from memory. Suits this style better. I think you also changed the arrangement, I don't recall that break-down in the middle with the sounds effects. Definitely a high octane trip. Great stuff. Regards
  5. Bat, Yes, kick sounds about right now. Really great song and trilogy. Regards
  6. Bat, Sounds good here overall. Kick may be a hair on the heavy side. I think the Kick mix, i.e., beater vs sub is right so maybe pull it down a db and see how it sits. Cool song, love it. Regards
  7. Rik, Nice track, your 3rd mix is definitely the one. Great listen. Regards
  8. Keith, Good song, has a nice early 70's feel. The songwriting is superb, strong melody, good structure, performance, and the breakdown after the guitar solo is a nice touch. Enjoyable listen for sure. Regards
  9. Rik, Nice one, takes some interesting turns. Couple times I thought I knew where it was going and it went in a different direction. Classical in nature but hear some pop in there as well. Sounds very good. Regards
  10. Great song, performance(s) and strong/memorable hook. Enjoyed this track very much. Regards
  11. Lynn, This is just a terrific production from the "mysterious" intro to the Santana'ish guitar riffs. Also really like how you have done the drums and percussion on this track. Very cool song. Regards
  12. Rik, Nice one, really like the finger picking on this track. Sounds a little stylistic of some of Jimmy Page's acoustic stuff with a southern twist (intro). Great tune and superb playing. Regards
  13. Lynn, Great track, performance and really solid mix. Your drums and bass are grooving together very well and are well balanced with the rest of the track. Great listen. Can't comment on the video, those type of visual effects give me vertigo with my astigmatism:( What i saw looked good though... Regards
  14. David, Great work, really enjoy your playing. Regards
  15. Ross, Very nice listen, distinct moods throughout the sections that would play well for a soundtrack. Like it very much, good playing, good piano tone as well. Regards
