    @mibby  Trust me, I have wasted a lot of money on camera gear.

    I just shot the second Madonna video.  When I put up the soft light really high, I remembered that it's not all that hard to minimize eyeglass reflections.  The problem is that it causes other lighting issues.  If I was young it would be fine but oh it makes me look like a horror movie villain without reflections in his glasses.  💀

    So I put a reflector on the other side of my face and had a bounce card under my neck.  I would say that I look a lot worse than with the Elgato lights, but that's okay because the reflections were distracting and now there are less of them.     There are still reflections, but you'll see... it's a lot better.     I'll keep working on it.

    Taking my glasses off didn't help because you can see the two lights reflected in my eyes, which is equally distracting.

    Thanks for the inside stories Reid! It's great to hear about recent film history!

    Just pointing out (like someone did for the first video) there is a sound imbalance between the right and left channel. Wearing headphones, the sound on the right side is sharper and clearer and sounds louder. The left side is more veiled or recessed, with less treble. It almost sounds like you're using two mics, one going to the right channel and one going to the left channel. I'm not sure whether the issue is panning or a mono track not being bounced to stereo? Maybe someone else can chime in with some advice.

    As part of the receipt, I received a new activation serial for Groove 3. My current subscription ends in a month, and I will use it then. 

    For those wondering, if you input your new Groove3 serial number now, it will add the extra 12 months on top of the time remaining on your all access pass.

    If someone gets that $49 upgrade, let me know what it gets you...

    Just confirming that upgrading from MPS 4 to 4.1 includes another Groove 3 pass. You also receive serial numbers for Nimbus and R4 reverbs (but I think those were already included with MPS 4, so I don't think there's an extra reverb as mentioned above, unless I'm mistaken). It also provides a new serial number for Melodyne Essential 5... and of course the RX 9 standard upgrade. Also, I asked, if you simply upgrade RX from 8 to 9 for $49, would that be recognized as upgrading to MPS 4.1, for future upgrade purposes... and the answer is no. Just a warning for those considering the RX upgrade on JRR Shop for $41. I didn't see the upgrade from MPS 4 to 4.1 on their site.

    Here is the response from Izotope support:

    Hi there,

    Thanks for contacting iZotope Customer Care!

    Yes, the MPS 4.1 includes the Groove 3 pass! You would get that if you upgrade.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

  6. Open Kontakt

    Click on the settings cog:


    Click on Database and voilà!


    Using File Explorer in Windows, under each instrument, there is a Samples folder. But I'm not sure they can be extracted for use in other VSTs. They are .NKR, NKX, NKC type files.

    @Matthew Sorrels could probably answer that!

    Also, don't forget about Voxengo TEOTE (not on sale; just thought I'd mention it along with the other similar plugins)


    TEOTE is 30% off at the moment!

  8. I took the dive and I'm enjoying the articles.

    But for those who are unaware of the Zinio model (like I was), this offer only gives you access to an electronic version of the next 12 issues. It does not provide you access to past issues or articles on the Sound on Sound website. 

  9. https://line6.com/software/index.html?hardware=Helix&name=Flash Memory&os=All&submit_form=set

    New Amp

    Mandarin Rocker, based on* the Orange® Rockerverb 100 MKIII.

    New Effects

    Distortion > Ratatouille Dist (Mono, Stereo), based on* the 1984 Pro Co RAT. Turns out our Vermin Dist model was broken. Sorry! We were going to replace it completely but a bunch of people had presets with the old version. On top of that, we found out our RAT's LM308 chip had crapped out since we modeled it last so we decided to get it into perfect working order and start from scratch

    Modulation > Retro Reel (Mono), Line 6 Original effect that simulates playing a signal back from an analog tape machine. This signal can be distorted, filtered to sound older or more lo-fi, and modulated with wow and flutter.

    Delay > Euclidean Delay (Mono, Stereo), Line 6 Original delay based on Euclidean algorithms. Creates multitap patterns by setting the length of the pattern (Steps) and the number of taps (Fill) in the pattern. The Euclidean algorithm spaces taps as evenly as possible throughout the pattern, resulting in rhythms from traditional to highly complex. Settle in because this one'll require diagrams and charts and whatnot.

    Reverb > Dynamic Hall (Mono, Stereo), Line 6 Original hall reverb

    Reverb > Hot Springs (Mono, Stereo), Line 6 Original spring reverb

    New Features....

    When you download on PC its in a ZIP File. Move that zip file where you like and unzip it. Then you see 4 folders .. each having subfolders with patches, samples etc. 

    Rather than going to the I add the %programdata%\Propellerhead Software\Soundbanks folder I setup a folder under Audio Data\Reason\Soundbanks and add that unzipped folder there. Previously .. When you have reason open, over in the BROWSER panel on the left where you  have Instruments, effects, utilities .. factory sounds .. This PC etc .. just drag the ( in my case ) Audio Data\Reason\Soundbanks folder to there so infuture any sound banks you add under soundbanks is accessible from the Browser Panel in Reason.

    In my case i am using Reason 11 Intro. The patches dont work because:


    So it looks like you need the FULL Version of Reason for this pack?

    I'm in the same boat then! Shucks!

  12. I received an email last week saying that I could upgrade to version 16 for only $118! Since I haven't had time to get into the software, I wasn't going to upgrade, but if it's not going to cost anything... yes sir!!! Thanks Larry!
