The invention of digital audio recordings liberated sound engineers in many ways which were not possible in the analog era. Even with all the tools at one’s fingertips, musicians and engineers sorely missed the sound and sonics of earlier recordings. The magic that the recording mediums imparted by default and one which was taken for granted.

What are your most transparent plugins?

Member for

Ive been interested in transparent gear and processors lately, and just wondering what the most transparent pluggins are that your using. I think i would say the fabilter compressor, and ozone eq are probably mine. The fab limiter has a bit of a gloss to it to me im not sure if its as transparent as the ozone limiter but i do like it. I haven't used it yet but i think the softube Weiss comp/limiter/maximizer will probably be more transparent than ozone or fab.

Mixing with Samplitude - You & Me & The Radio

I've been doing this for a while. Once or twice a year, I like to download free tracks and mix them. It gives me a chance to adapt to different recording qualities and mind set. I mostly mix my own stuff, so I think it's a good exercise to do.. If you want to join me, download the tracks and send me links to your mixes.

Pluggin latency question

Member for

If im running a session with a 64 sample buffer, then i instantiate a pluggin with a 64 sample latency spec on my live input, does that mean that the latency i experience would be based on 128 samples? Or does the pluggin latency get "absorbed" by the session buffer and i would only experience the 64 samples of latency?


plugging up my first patch bay ? Doing it right!

Member for

I am about to plug up my studio.
I got some great info about the inputs I have .

So step one is to run my instruments through a patch bay , normalled to mixer channels on my yamaha 32/10.

I am hoping to use an 8 channel snake from the patchbay's outputs to the mixer's inputs.
Its getting complicated quick, because of the various outputs of my instruments. Here is the list.
1 = sm57 mic
2= sm57 mic
3=electric drums L
4=electric drums R
5= Rhodes ( with amp)
6= Rhodes (no amp)

Technical question about getting plug-ins information

Member for

Hi all!

So close to what I'm searching for, I wonder if there would be a solution. I'm aware that it would be almost a miracle if I success.

Mac user, I have an old PC Cubase session. I really want to work again on that song. In the first place, I want to rebuild it (the old version is great to me).

I know the plug-ins that I used at the time (they're installed on my computer), but I don't know the precise sounds I used, among hundreds.

Using sidechain to get a rhythmic effect in VST plugins

Member for

I'd like to experiment with the kind of rhythmic control over an instrument's signal level synced to a track as Johnny Marr did with his guitar on 'How Soon Is Now' in which a drum machine is inserted into a compressor's sidechain (see this YouTube demo).
