Nord Lead 4 Review - Sami Rabia March 28, 2018 18:19

The NL4 introduces new analog modeled filters, digital waveforms and retains all the ease of use and great build quality or the former models.


Akai MPC Live Impressions/review June 02, 2017 08:33

After having the MPC live for a few weeks, I thought I'd do a simple video on what I like about the Live, and what's missing from the O.S


Into Modular Part 2: Control March 16, 2017 10:51

Put simply, Silent way lets you send CV and Gate signals right from your DAW. The signals are generated by a plug-in, which in turn is controlled just like any other instrument in your DAW.

Reason 9 March 16, 2017 08:57

Reason 9

Since 2015 I've been getting a lot of requests to provide sounds for Reason, either with Combi's or for some of the rack extensions available for it. For whatever reason I just never got around to it, despite intending to.  This year, 2017, I've decided It will happen.

I initially planned to make some sound banks for synths like Thor & Antidote, but it seems like people want Combi's more than anything, so It looks like I'll focus on that. I think the majority of presets will use combi's for some basic things like adding EQ, some effects or doing some stacking when necessary, but I'm not looking to make huge complex combi's, at least not to start with.

As for my concrete plans, it looks like I'll be doing a Subtractor based combinator bank first. Everyone has access to Subtractor and it has a lot of mileage in it.


Into Modular Part 1 November 08, 2016 15:11

I’ve finally taken my first step into modular synthesizers by buying my first Euro-rack case.  The Tiptop Mantis case will house and supply power to several modules, which I’m free to pick and choose.

Sound Depends on Context May 28, 2016 17:39

It’s quite easy to hear the same sound in two different contexts and conclude that they are not the same sound. The fact is, the same thing has happened to me. You hear something in a demo, you get the thing and then it doesn’t quite sound as good.

Review of Carbon Electra (for bedroom producers blog) August 16, 2015 19:46

"Carbon is quite a capable synth, very streamlined and inviting to tweak. It gets a lot of things right in its workflow where some other synths fail. As far as sound goes, Carbon Electra has the kind of sonic richness that makes it sound like a wavetable synthesizer at times and it’s also one of those synths that distracts me endlessly from my initial programming plans."

Review NI Massive July 27, 2015 13:21

At first glance it's easy enough to dismiss Massive with today's vintage analog style offerings. Computer power and analog modeling have come a long way since its release, but there is a huge world of sounds outside of what analog synthesis can provide and it's in that domain that Massive shines.

My favourite Free (or inexpensive) Plugins July 17, 2015 19:29 4 Comments

ex3Many cheap or even free plugins are extremely good.  Occasionally a free plugin bests just about everything out there.  Such is the case with my first plugin on the list, the TDR Kotelnikov...


Review: Audient ID22 June 29, 2015 21:47

Audient is a British company, founded in 1997 who have a reputation in the pro-audio industry for their top flight analog consoles and their ASP008 Mic-pre racks (now updated to the ASP880). They have recently taken their expertise in high end audio and applied it to creating the new, relatively affordable at $699 & high quality audio interface the ID22.
