Re: Effects review

With actual tape, saturation and compression go hand in hand, due to a phenomenon called self-erasure. After a certain signal level, adding more signal puts less signal on the tape. I'm surprised that Waves would have missed this...that's why printing drums to analog tape is still so popular. I'm a...

Re: Effects review

Is it okay to add reviews for effects plugins? If so, here goes... The Waves J37 Stereo Tape Saturation Plugin I love this plugin. It's not perfect, and lacks a few things I'd like to see, but it really lets you mangle your sounds with its current features. My favorite aspects of the plugin are the ...

Re: Dynamic Processors & Effects

Synths have dynamics, too. I regularly multi-band compress my synth lines in tracks because when you go up or down an octave or 2 the notes tend to not be as even in volume due to the different frequencies. Example - playing a synth solo in the mid-range that gradually gets higher and higher. The hi...

Re: Master your tracks for free with these plugins

I prefer using Lightweight Limiter as my limiter... There's a bunch of free limiters you can use, but LoudMax is the easiest one to use. Just turn down the threshold a little bit and voila!

Master your tracks for free with these plugins

Hello everyone! I recently made a little tutorial where I created a mastering effects chain using all completely free plugins. The tutorial was designed for people who have been curious about mastering but aren't quite sure what goes into the process. I'm not a professional (far from it!), but I use...
