Produce Music? Like VST & VSTi? You’ll Love This!!

This is for all the people that make music and love to use VST & VSTi!! I’m giving away over $2,000 in Plugins, Samples, Max Devices, Educational Materials and more… 3 people will win!!! Easy to Enter!! Click this link to go see how to enter. Below is the Wikipedia Article on Tape Bias… because, why not? Tape bias is the term for two techniques, AC bias and DC bias, that improve the fidelity of analogue tape recorders. DC bias is the addition of a direct current to the audio signal that is being recorded. AC bias is the addition of an inaudible high-frequency signal (generally from 40 to 150 kHz) to the audio signal. All contemporary tape recorders use AC bias. Without bias, magnetic tape has a nonlinear response at low signal strengths, as measured by its coercivity. Bias increases the signal quality of most audio recordings significantly by pushing the signal into the linear zone of the tape’s transfer function. Magnetic recording was proposed as early as 1878 by Oberlin Smith, who on 4 October 1878 filed, with the U.S. patent office, a caveat regarding the magnetic recording of sound and who published his ideas on the subject in the 8 September 1888 issue of The Electrical World as “Some possible forms of phonograph”.[1][2] By 1898 Valdemar Poulsen had demonstrated a magnetic recorder and proposed magnetic tape.[3] Fritz Pfleumer was granted a German patent for a non-magnetic “Sound recording carrier” with a magnetic coating, on 1928-01-31,[4] but it was later overturned[citation needed] in favor of an earlier US patent by Joseph A. O’Neill.[5] DC bias[edit] The earliest magnetic recording systems simply applied the unadulterated (baseband) input signal to a recording head, resulting in recordings with poor low-frequency response and high distortion. Within short order, the addition of a suitable direct current to the signal, a DC bias, was found to reduce distortion by operating the tape substantially within its linear-response region. The principal disadvantage of DC bias was that it left the tape with a net magnetization, which generated significant noise on replay because of the grain of the tape particles. Some early DC-bias systems used a permanent magnet that was placed near the record head. It had to be swung out of the way for replay. DC bias was replaced by AC bias but was later re-adopted by some very low-cost cassette recorders. AC bias[edit] Although the improvements with DC bias were significant, an even better recording is possible if an AC (alternating current) bias is used instead. While several people around the world rediscovered AC bias, it was the German developments that were widely used in practice and served as the model for future work. The original patent for AC bias was filed by Wendell L. Carlson and Glenn L. Carpenter in 1921, eventually resulting in a patent in 1927.[6] The value of AC bias was somewhat masked by the primitive state of other aspects of magnetic recording, however, and Carlson and Carpenter’s achievement was largely ignored. The first rediscovery seems to have been by Dean Wooldrige at Bell Telephone Laboratories, around 1937,[7] but the BTL lawyers found the original patent, and simply kept silent about their rediscovery of AC bias. Teiji Igarishi, Mokoto Ishikawa, and Kenzo Nagai of Japan published a paper on AC biasing in 1938 and received a Japanese patent in 1940. Marvin Camras (USA) also rediscovered high-frequency (AC) bias independently in 1941 and received a patent in 1944.[8] The reduction in distortion and noise provided by AC bias was...

Review: RZ062 EQ by Audified

Posted by on 5:09 pm in Ableton Tutorials, PalmMute, Review, Tutorials | 0 comments

Review: RZ062 EQ by Audified

A Video Review of the RZ062 EQ by Audified by PalmMute! The RZ062 Equalizer by Audified is a replica of the Klangfilm EQ module in vst format. It functions with a 3 main knob interface which makes it easy to use and delivers a pleasant sound to anything you process with it. It delivers best results when used as a broad frequency spectrum sculpting tool to help everything that is processed by it have a proper balance of lows, mids and highs. Get the RZ062 — PIB/RZ062 The 3 primary control knobs are just your regular high,mid and low controls for a 3 band eq, but the different versions of the plugin feature a different type of effect in the ‘mid band’ control; The ‘a’ version features a mirrored shelf like feature where it turns down the highs as it turns up the lows and vice versa. The ‘b’ version features a mid frequency shift focus where it roughly speaking turns up the 2000hz and turns down the 500hz in a very specific and pleasant manner which this short explanation does no justice. Beyond acting as a equalizer it also features built in saturation which helps glue together everything processed in a subtle manner. In general everyday use it will act as slight saturation for drums to glue the bus together to providing a nice subtle edge to vocals that help it pop a little better without changing the sound in any drastic way which helps it give that extra 5% that puts a song from 95% to 100% there. The saturation section can also be used in excessive manners to provide you with cranked distortion type sounds for sound design in the likes of Porter Robinson, Shadient and aggressive XXXTentacion style beats. Overall it brings a very fresh sounding type of distortion to your vocabulary which is very hard to obtain through manual use of waveshapers and simpler types of saturators that are often featured as stock plugins in most DAWs. The video covers the basic workflow of the plugin, demonstrates the sound of it on a full mix and showcases a example of how to use it as distortion unit on a bass bus as smooth saturation and as very thick distortion. Pros of the RZ062a and RZ062b -Easy to use -Extremely difficult to make it sound worse than before. -Saturation section has a very big dynamic range and usable applications Cons of the RZ062a and RZ062b -High CPU usage -Takes a bit of extra effort to bring out the thick saturation out. Overall this is a great plugin for people who are very into mixing and mastering to add to their pallette of adding ‘sweetness’ to their projects but also is a great sound design tool when used under extreme circumstances. Watch the Video Review *full release notes below Release Notes The Sweetest EQ Ever Two Plugins for Music Production and Mastering.​ The exact models of Klangfilm RZ062a and RZ062b vintage EQ modules. Both RZ062 plug-ins deliver pleasant vintage warmth and amazing presence to your vocals, instruments and entire mixes. The Original The RZ062 Equalizers were originally (in the 1960s) designed in Germany for installation in mixing consoles. They were supposed to permit arbitrary modification of frequency response in sound recording and reproduction in order to...

Avenger Gets Huge Granular Update & Currently 20% OFF!!!

VPS Avenger is the best synth to come out since Serum… and it’s a lot, lot bigger! V.1.2.0 just came out and along with it a 20% Discount! Get VPS Avenger – PIB/Avenger I’ve been using Avenger since I got it earlier this year. It has so much flexibility and epicness that’s not difficult to believe. I mean, it’s made by the Vengeance people!! Click Here for Avenger Tutorials -> VPSAvenger Tutorials This last update was titled the BIG GRANULAR UPDATE, and if you peep the changelog below you will see why… 1.2.0 – big GRANULAR Update – added new Granular synthesis module – added 32 new Granular presets – added granular factory library with 219 waveforms/loops for granular synthesis – added new mighty soundbrowser to load sounds into an OSC – added the library for the “resampler” into ne new browser – added new release mode for mod-envelope (releasing the note in an attack phase will jump to the correspondent volume in the release phase) – fixed a problem with ARP undo for patterns B, C, D – fixed some ARP issues like hanging notes, pattern issues – fixed a issue with loading Impulse samples for “FX Impulse” effect – added “verify expansion” to the expansion browser, so that customer expansions can be verified before publishing them. That shows issues with using content from other expansions than the target expansion or the factory. – added version check for presets: You can not longer load a preset in an outdated Avenger version (example: a preset created with 1.2 using the new granular module loaded into an Avenger 1.0) which would otherwise lead to a crash. – added new DrumSequencer functions: export to MIDI and import from MIDI, just rightclick in the DrumSQ area below – added the possibility of live recording the Arpeggiator note output into Midi (only supported for DAWs which allow MIDI return, and only VST2/3). Just create a new MIDI track and select VPS Avenger as input source. – INIT preset load fix. The correct INIT preset should now be loaded for everyone – dozens of smaller...

Oracle – The Epic New Reverb Plug from SoundSpot for $13 until Sept. 3rd!!

Posted by on 10:27 pm in Blog Post, Feature | 0 comments

Oracle – The Epic New Reverb Plug from SoundSpot for $13 until Sept. 3rd!!

This is an incredible and versatile reverb plug that sounds fantastic. Throw in all of the control options and you have a powerhouse of a unit! $13 until September 3rd! Get Oracle — PIB/Oracle For $13, you can’t go wrong! I’ve been using it for a couple days and I am very impressed. So many options for modifying the reverb tails. I just finished a video tutorial on making lush gated reverb with this bad boy and it should be out soon, but, if you can, don’t wait for it to buy Oracle. Features: Intuitive, easy to navigate user interface. Designed to work flawlessly with touch controllers such as the Raven by Slate Media. Stereo imaging controls for accurate placement in the stereo field. Analogue style compressor with visual waveform feedback. Bandpass filter to sculpt the sound and remove unwanted frequencies. LFO effect to create movement to the amplitude of the signal. Flanger effect to keep your reverbs interesting. Saturation effect to add warmth or distortion to the signal. Preset manager to save & share your own reverb designs. Watch the Intro Video *full release notes below Release Notes A great sounding reverb is arguably one of the most important factors in achieving a full and atmospheric mix, and with that in mind, the SoundSpot® team set out to create a reverb that can deliver to the demands of modern production. After many months of development, we are proud to announce the arrival of the Oracle Algoverb. The Oracle is a one stop shop for all your creative reverb needs and can be used on any sound source to great effect. From adding a sense of depth to piano melodies to making synthesised soundscapes sound huge, the Oracle has it covered. Reverb As modern music can be a highly complex affair, with the layering of software instruments common place in most productions, the need for a CPU efficient reverb is increasingly important. As impulse response reverbs, otherwise known as convolution reverbs can be highly CPU intensive, we decided that developing an algorithmic reverb was the way to go, and set out to create a signal that was sonically pleasing, but lightweight and versatile. We happily succeeded in the DSP department but felt there must be a better way to visualise the signal, so we created the Sinescope. The Sinescope reacts to the signal in a way that sound waves would if they were reflecting off a surface, with the initial wave dissipating over time. The Sinescope visualisation allows you to monitor the tail of the reverb, and make accurate mixing decisions based on other sounds in the mix. Imaging Having a great sounding reverb is a wonderful thing, but things can quickly become messy when the available space in the stereo field is limited, so it’s important to have the tools to place the reverb signal in the perfect place. With this in mind, we included our best selling mono/stereo maker algorithm which allows you to narrow or widen the reverb, depending on your goals. But we didn’t stop there. We realise that once you have the perfect width, you will need to pinpoint a position in the stereo field with the reverb, so we included our best selling mid/side panning algorithm as well, to help you get the precision...

Serum Tutorial: How to Change the Preset Folder Location

This is how to change Serum’s preset folder location! If you want to move the preset folder for Serum, maybe to the HHD instead of the SSD, it is deceptively simple to do. Before you launch Serum, simply take the entire “Serum Presets” folder and move it to the desired location. Then, go and launch Serum. You will be asked to point to the “Serum Presets” folder. Do that. There you go. That’s all there is to it. NOTE: For the latest Serum update (v1.20b9), released June 30, 2017, there is a new folder called Skins. If you are just trying to point Serum to your cloud storage version of the earlier version of Serum you will want to make sure that you keep the Skins folder and place it in the Serum Presets...

Alienware Screen Keeps Dimming [Fixed]

This is how to stop the screen on your Alienware laptop from self dimming! Two methods. I know that you, like me, don’t like the screen’s brightness to keep dimming after a few seconds. It makes me nervous and sometimes can get in the way of gaming. I also know that, if you have been searching about this topic, most people are telling you to adjust the battery settings in the control panel…. and, that isn’t fixing the issue you are talking about. The real problem is the Tobii Power Settings. Specifically the Tobii Presence Settings.   Tobii Eye Tracking Power Features You can adjust these settings in the Tobii Eye Tracking Control Panel. In the Windows search bar type Tobii and click the Tobii Eye Tracking Desktop App. Under the Power tab you can choose what the eye tracking system does when it doesn’t see you after a set amount of time. This can be a useful feature. I don’t need it though. How to disable this feature completely via Power Settings If you want to just completely shut this off do the following. Go to Control Panel Power Settings Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options > Edit Play Settings Click “Change the advanced power settings” From the Advanced Power Options panel do to Tobii Power Settings > Tobii Power Presence Settings and change the two options.

Free Softube Saturation Knob VST

Softube make some of the best plugs around. No Joke. Being able to grab this Saturation Knob for free should be taken advantage of immediately! Get the Saturation Knob — SFT/SatKnob If you have never downloaded anything from Softube or Slate Digital there isa bit of a process to get the knob, but it is well worth it. The free plug-in Saturation Knob is a modeled output distortion that can be used anywhere you need some grit. Use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy your drum loop. The three modes, Keep High, Neutral and Keep Low give you three kinds of characters of distortion. If you want to squash a drum loop but keep the bass drum fairly intact, you can for example use the Keep Low mode. “My response when they told me the Saturation Knob is a free plug-in was—are you nuts? Seriously? It’s too good to be free! I use it to make guitars fatter and more aggressive, snares naturally brighter, kicks punchier, vocals warmer. Basically, it’s good on just about anything. Saturation Knob should be renamed Attitude Adjuster! If a plugin can be addicting, the Saturation Knob is it!” – Michael Brauer, Seven Grammy awards, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Coldplay How can I get it? Saturation Knob is available for free! Simply sign in to your Softube/Gobbler account and click the ‘Get Your Free License’ button at the top of this page. Then go to [their] Download page and install the Gobbler App, which is used to install [their] software. Sign in to the app using your Softube/Gobbler account and click the ‘Install’ button next to the Saturation Knob to install it. This will make it ready for use in your DAW.

Load it onto an instrument track in your DAW and click the Connect button in the Loopcloud app to establish a link between the two. Loopcloud timestretches the selected sample to fit your project tempo, and plays it back in perfect sync at a variety of loop lengths (or triggering patterns (Off Beat, Triplets, 8ths, etc), while the Pitch slider lets you shift it up or down by up to an octave.

“Studio Time” with Junkie XL – Season 2 Starts Today!

“Studio Time” with Junkie XL – Season 2 Starts Today!

The man responsible for the soundtracks of Batman v Superman, Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool, and more talks production and gear in the new season!! Junkie XL’s “Studio Time” Season 2 has Started! Junkie XL, or Tom Holkenborg, has made quite a name for himself and for good reason. He has been scoring some of the biggest films of the last 5 years. Including, but not limited to, Batman Vs. Superman, Deadpool, Mad Max: Fury Road, and 300: Rise of an Empire. Junkie XL on IMDB I’ve personally been a fan of Junkie XL since he was producing tech house and techno music 15 years ago. You’ve almost definitely heard his remix of Elvis’s “A little less conversation” as it has been used in too many films to count and currently has 13M+ views on the official Elvis youtube channel. It is safe to say that in a short two paragraph snippet of his portfolio the man clearly stands out as one of our generations true great musical talents. What is really exciting, beyond listening to his incredible body of work, is his youtube series “Studio Time”. This is a series where he personally walks you through his process of composing for these blockbuster films. In season 1 he covered making the epic drums and guitars of Mad Max, his template setup and workstation layout, the music behind Run All Night, Fabfilter plugs and more. He is promising around 20 new episodes this round. One to be released every Friday for the next couple of months. If you like learning from incredibly talented producers, drooling over analog gear, and watching a true master working in his environment this is a series for you! The production value is top quality too. Multiple cameras. Great clear dialogue mic audio. He even has a direct audio feed from his computer this season. Check out the Welcome Back Video where explains a bit about the series and what’s to come. Then jump right into Season 2 Episode 1 This is the first of what is going to be a 2-part video, on how he composed the character theme for Liz in the movie Brimstone. Subscribe. Watch. Listen.

Fixed – iLok Authorization Error [PACE Service]

Fixed – iLok Authorization Error [PACE Service]

This is how to fix the seemingly random authorization error (pipe) caused when the PACE service doesn’t start automatically, as it should. If you have any plugins, undoubtedly you have had to deal with the iLok licence manager. Many companies use iLok to handle their licensing. Softube, AIR music, Heavyocity, Eventide, UVI, Audified, Sonivox and many others. It usually works fairly easily. However, sometimes you get an odd error. It has happened to me twice. The error can present itself in more than one way. This is how to diagnose and fix the issue. Watch the Video Tutorial *full written tutorial below The Windows popup error: Authorization Std Exception. “YOUR PLUG” cannot run, because an error occurred. Timed out waiting to connect to the named pipe: \\.\pipe\com_paceap_eden_licensed_authorization The in plugin error: Could not find a valid license. In iLok License Manager, please check that the license is on your computer or iLok. Restart your DAW. The iLok License Manager error: Software Component Unavailable. A background component required for iLok License Manager seems to be unalienable. If rebooting does not fix this issue, please visit iLok.com an download and run the latest License Support installer. This is how to fix it. If you have seen this, and don’t have pirated plugs, and have already activated your available license, what is happening has to do with the Pace administration service not starting automatically as it should. I am not sure what causes this to occur. I know I just installed lots of new plugs and programs, but this happened even after a reboot of my computer. To fix it for a Windows machine, you need to go to the Control Panel and find the Administrative Tools. Then find the Services shortcut and click it. Once inside, sort the services by name and go to P and find the PACE License Services. If you don’t see “running” in the status column that is your issue. Or, if there is only the option to “Start the Service” in the left hand of the window. Go ahead and click “Start the Service”.  Now the service should be “running” in the status bar and you should have the option to stop, pause or restart the service. That should be it! Success!! You should be able to launch your iLok connect plugs in your DAW. If that wasn’t the issue I highly suggest contacting iLok....
