  1. Nice! I didn't know other people also produced underground yodeling!
  2. Some inexpensive ($5) options https://www.adsrsounds.com/product/software/hexcel/ https://www.adsrsounds.com/product/software/midi-grid/
  3. Spoiler: it's a one-knob multi-stage compressor. The 3 stages that get applied are: Smash (transparent compression) Valve (colored compression) and Multi-band (de-essing, etc.) https://shop.audified.com/products/vocalmint-compressor

  5. @BeastsamplesAre they still in effect the terms for 50/50 split of any Advances, Producer Royalty and Publishing Royalties in the case of major releases? I still see them in section 18 at https://beastsamples.com/terms-conditions/ but no mention about them in the license agreement at https://beastsamples.com/faq/
  6. (sending by DM, posted by mistake)

  7. All this talk about the technical details while the video only has 5 likes... c'mon people! listen to the music too, enjoy the nice work in video editing and hit that thumbs up button! (to be clear, I do enjoy the technical conversation too. I'm just pointing out that it should go together with an appreciation for the arts...)
  8. Note that the Soundpool DVD collection 14 is no longer produced but it can currently be found on eBay for $14.99. It includes commercial licenses for: Ambient – Natural Chillout – Sunny Morning Dance/Electro – French Electro Disco/House – Ultimate Groove Hip Hop – Sub Urban Movie Score – Cinematic World Reggae – Reggae Nation Rock/Pop – Painkiller Swing – Swing Time Techno/Trance – Techno Virus At $1.5 per commercially licensed soundpool it can be a much better deal than the weekend wannabee
  9. This Weekend - Electro: French Electro $8.99 for the commercially licensed option (or $4.99 for the non-commercial) https://producerplanet.com/us/article/french-electro-160/?license=commercial_unlimited This soundpool contains all loops from 'DanceElectro Vol. 6' of 'Soundpool DVD Collection 14'.
  10. FWIW it did work for me (even though I already had T-RackS 5 Total Studio MAX 2). I went to my profile page in my user account and it didn't do anything. I then went to the my products page and I got the popup. I'm using Firefox on Windows. Checking the product page it says Also included in T-RackS 5 MAX Total Studio 3.5 MAX Maybe I got it because T-RackS 5 Total Studio MAX 2 doesn't exactly match those? Anyway, I'm not going to complain
  11. I think that the concern is not people buying multiple copies of the magazine, but rather that it's very easy to purchase only one copy and request hundreds of codes by using a variety of gmail addresses
  12. The AAS codes seem to be individualized (instead of a generic code for all readers), per the discussion in the other thread. Re-sending a registration request with the same email as before will result in a reminder of previous registration codes (which makes sense) but it may be possible to purchase multiple copies of the magazine and get multiple codes if using different email addresses for the registration. However, AAS may be able to determine where the codes came from and decide to limit for a given promotion how many codes will be accepted in the same account (which is something to also take into account if purchasing codes from a "Buy & Sell" forum, as they may be from a promotion you've already participated in)
  13. Yes and no... It is loop-oriented like Acid, and MMM can load acid loops, but MMM is oriented towards using soundpools, which are quite different from typical acid libraries and loop libraries in general. All the loops in the soundpool (with the exception of drums and some effects/adlibs/solos) are provided in 7 variations corresponding to scale degrees, nearly always CdeFGa plus a 7th (a# or b. I haven't seen any soundpools using the "correct" bdim). The loop variations sometimes have small divergences and aren't just pitch shifts MMM has a "pitch bar" that allows changing sections across multiple tracks to a different scale degree. What I like about MMM is this "vertical dimension" that better enables me to think about the song in terms of scale degrees, and it is also the building block for the Song Maker feature that uses a template for the vertical dimension (song structure) and "intelligently" randomizes which loops are used from the soundpools. Unfortunately MMM is not a good DAW in other respects (plugin management, etc) and it is a little unstable for long sessions. My workflow is to first use MMM for generating tracks that I then export, and process in another DAW
  14. I'm surprised by this. I seem to have plenty of these versions and never installed them. For me, the Song Maker feature in MMM, coupled with a good palette of soundpools has a very high entertainment value. Soundpools are expensive at full price but, through Humblebundle, Fanatical, soundpool DVDs from eBay, etc., they end up around $2 on average
  15. I need to classify my answer in several categories of "upsell" The top of my list is Magix Music Maker. It is free in its basic edition. I got a few "enhanced" editions for free bundled with other products, multiple times, and ignored it for years, then one day I started playing around with it and... now I have upgraded to the full premium edition, expanded with more than 200 soundpools Other entries in the "free to full" category are Native Instruments, from the various players to Komplete, and Plugin Alliance from a few freebies to... (I'd rather not look at the numbers) For the category "free with DAW" and "free with Hardware" I have: The Melodyne Assistant that came with Cakewalk ended up in a full Melodyne Studio, the XLN Addictive Drums that also came with Cakewalk started me on the path to a nearly complete AD2 setup, and the same happened with AAS, from a couple of "session" versions to full versions of all the instruments plus many expansion packs. The Air plugins that came with Pro Tools got me into AIEP3. The various iZotope plugins included with SoundForge ended up in Music Production Suite. The SONiVOX EightyEight that came with a midi controller ended up in the complete SONiVOX colection. Sibelius First (that I don't remember what hardware it came with) ended up a full Sibelius license The next category are the "free with magazine" (Computer Music): DDMF plugins, Xils Virtual Instruments, Audiothing MiniBit, Rob Papen RG, Hornet plugins, Synthmaster, u-he plugins and Virtual Instruments I have reserved for the end the "did-what-no-other-has-done" category: Cakewalk. The really early versions that I saw I don't remember if they were actually shareware or they were "friend-shared-wares". I then got several versions in the "free with hardware" category (with sound blaster cards), until I upgraded to full versions of Sonar. The unique twist came when it was "upgraded back to free"
  16. My emails from March 2020 To: contact@hexachords.com Hello, I was evaluating the purchase of Orb Composer Artist and when I came to the orb-composer website I don't see any information about it. Is the product being discontinued? If yes, is there a planned upgrade to the Orb Producer Suite? Cheers, Eusebio === From: jmlange@hexachords.com Hello, no, we have decided to sell it only on pluginboutique. Try Orb Producer, it’s our brand new product 🙂 Best regards, Jean-Michel Langé Sales and Marketing manager
  17. Thank you very much @Starship Krupa for the links! The idea of the golden waveforms is new for me and sounds very interesting.
  18. For reference, this is the review I was referring to
  19. https://www.tone2.com/shop.html Icarus 2 Synthesizer €149/$169 Big bundle, 66% discount €299/$349 Sounds bundle, 72% discount €189/$199 Electra 2.8 Synthesizer €149/$169 Big bundle, 74% discount €299 $349 Sounds bundle, 86% discount €189/$199 Gladiator 3 Synthesizer €149/$169 Big bundle, 36% discount €249/$299 Nemesis 2 Synthesizer €99/$99 Big bundle, 63% discount €199/$199 Sounds bundle, 56% discount €139/$149 RayBlaster 2.6 Synthesizer €99/$99 Big bundle, 60% discount €199/$199 Sounds bundle ,54% discount €119/$129 Saurus 3.0 Synthesizer €59/$69 Big bundle, 53% discount €199/$199 Sounds bundle, 56% discount €139/$149 (Note: I just came across these because Zo's old review of Nemesis suddenly popped up in my YouTube recommendations. I'm not sure if it's really a sale or just a "perma-sale")
  20. Ok, I'll give away my "secret sauce". The free tool I regularly use in projects is sbagen https://uazu.net/sbagen/ , to generate a track that sets the appropriate mood One reason for seldom using freebies is that generally for the ones that I like I end up purchasing the corresponding "big brother". Maybe that's a different thread "Which freebies encouraged you to upgrade to a paid product?" One plugin that I also use frequently is hornet elliptiq https://www.hornetplugins.com/plugins/hornet-elliptiq/. Technically it's not free but, when Hornet has a sale (that is, most of the year), it costs less than an issue of Beat magazine or Computer Music magazine at the newsstand.
  21. Waves Retro Fi is $39.99 at waves.com but some stores still have the earlier discounted price $29.99 The interesting part is that now that Waves Cash coupons are out, they can be used to further lower the price The Waves Cash instructions indicate that coupons can be redeemed on Waves.com or through all authorized Waves dealers. I tried a few online discounters and none of their checkout systems accepted the Waves Cash coupon directly, but I contacted the sales engineer at Sweetwater that handles my orders and he was able to apply it and send me a Paypal invoice for $19.99 + tax https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/RetroFi--waves-retro-fi-lo-fi-fx-chain-plug-in bestservice.com may have even better prices although, due to timezone differences and support hours, I didn't want to risk the price changing while the emails went back and forth. If they still have the same price tomorrow it may be a good option for people in Europe or early risers in the US https://www.bestservice.com/retro_fi.html (Note: I know that everyplugin.com tends to have the best price for Waves. I did contact Koby but they are already using the updated $39.99 price and he wasn't able to apply the Waves Cash and other discounts to bring it lower than Sweetwater)
  22. This Weekend - Pop-Rock: Rock City $8.99 for the commercially licensed option (or $4.99 for the non-commercial) https://producerplanet.com/us/article/rock-city-4357/?license=commercial_unlimited This soundpool contains all loops from 'RockPop Vol. 5' of 'Soundpool DVD Collection 12'.
  23. NLE for Video/Audio/etc 100% discount until the end of the day (Timezone US EST) https://sharewareonsale.com/s/free-turbo-play-100-discount I didn't even know until today that this software existed, but the list of features is rather extensive. Here are some of the Audio related ones VST 3.x support MP3,WAV,FLAC,OGG,MID and MUSICXML,SF2,SFZ format support 8+GB Orchestra samples and drumkits Unlimited tracks AI experimental features (Audio to midi, Auto Harmony, Speech to Text) multiband configuration for any effect/VST Byzantine composer Advanced ear training
  24. Available in German from the falkemedia website now https://www.falkemedia-shop.de/sound/beat/beat-02/2022 The English version is not out yet. I guessed the answer to the challenge because it's an amusing game, but I will definitely definitely buy it when it comes out. I compared the offered selection of AAS expansions to the list of expansions I'm still missing. The only one that I didn't find in the selection was Analog Orchestra, the other 21 that I was missing were all available The last 4 letters of my AAS coupon are **** [Edited by Moderator], it will be interesting to compare with others and see if it's a generic or customized code The biggest headline on the front cover is the key point of the issue. You want to know how to get that done [Let's avoid posting codes that are intended for existing customers, that's a no-no from the vendors.]
  25. For anybody who likes making the purchase that gets the Group Buy to the next tier, here is your chance...
