Thanks Jake. Their GUI's look very cool.

I'm gonna download a few and try them on some tracks.

so far I've experimented the most with the Event Horizon+...on some of the acoustic stuff I like it better than my L1...it really seems to add a "color" to the sound that the waves plug is lacking and just looking at the waveform dosen't smash it near as much for the gains.

I was also able to really add some mojo to a blandish vocal with the Vibe EQ...the Verbiage does a really nice job...seems a lot more versitale than most digital reverbs that basically just model a space...


after you fiddle a bit lemme know what ya think

Ok so how do you use this stuff? When you download it, what do you run it through? Then once you figure that out, how do you create with it and ultimately get it onto the G?

Ron,

They are VST plugins that are used in a PC or Mac based Audio host program like Sonar or Cubase.

The plugins automatically install in your software host's plugin folder.

You create with them like you would with any other effect. They are mostly EQ's, Compressors and Reverbs. The paintbrush does not the artist make, if you will.

They can not be used on the G, thats why Jake made the post in the Computer Software section.

Ummm....OK, methinks you are messing with me but I'll reply as if you are not.

It is of use to anyone who tracks, mixes or edits via computer. We have members who do that and (I think) that is why we have a Computer Software section.

Make sense?

Jake,

I just tried the Rocket Compressor (1990's console setting) and Event Horizon (just some light limiting and gan) as the mastering chain on one of my tunes.

After a few listens I like it and agree that the limiter is transparent, none of the ear drum breaking, clanky highs that we sometimes get with the Waves L series.

Thanks for posting the link. I'll mess with the EQ's next.

Gary

awesome man...haha your explaination is way better than mine for the Event Horizion...I always say stuff incorrectly :wink:

my big thing with the eq's is you don't have to be scared of the high end...I cranked the high frequency gain on a couple things and although it was a little much, it didn't sound harsh like it sometimes does with other eq's...I could see you really being able to add "air" to tracks or mixes with it...not a precision eq by any means but a useful tool


no problem with the link...I've learned so much from reading this board that I want to be able to share anything I can with y'all :)

I don't really think software sounds any better than a good engineer with hardware. It's just so much easier and faster to use IMO.

Yup. But a good engineer with nice stuff..mmmm...they're still chasin' that. There's a warmth and yumminess I can't even put into words... not sure what the quality is.

Not having to physically record my synths has been a boon to my workflow AND sound quality. I don't have to worry about input levels or the myriad of other headaches.....just arrange and mix. The Propellerheads have done a very good job with their software and "devices" so you can do EVERYTHING "in the box", but is lean enough to run on my dinosaur pc, and is only limited by the power of your personal computation device.

However, If I did require plugs, I would download :D Reaper, AND gain the ability to control/record external hardware devices, and use plugs........the 3 things Propellerhead software can NOT do.

Plugs ARE awesome. Especially GOOD ones that are cheap and not buggy. I love 'em...., AND good cheap ones referred by dijonites!!!! I'm just glad I don't have to rely on them anymore for what I'm doing. YMMV :dontknow:
