Playing around with a feedback loop in reaper with my space echo. Take this routing and you can turn any analog recorder into a delay.

Video: Slate Digital VMR Demo with EDM loops and first impressions review

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Slate Digital just released the Virtual Mix Rack plugin and while I was trying it out I made a quick demo video. I’m using presets from VMR on each channel, with free DEADMAU5 style loops from LoopPort.

 

My first impressions review:

Lots of fun. Really intuitive to use. Very useable presets. The modules sound great and have an authentic sound but not limited to the original set of controls. The constantly variable frequency for the EQs is great, so rare to see on a Neve emulation. On really nice little detail is that the wear on the modules, all the faded and chipped paint changes each time you load a module.

It’s well worth getting the demo now for the free Revival module. That’s going to get a lot of use in my mixing and maybe mastering too.

I’m not buying it yet, but I think the price ($149) is great. It’s not something I NEED but it’s something I definitely want.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what other modules will be coming out for this. In 6 months this could be incredible. Will VCC, VBC, and FG-X be integrated? Will more complex routing within the plugin be added (ie sidechaining)? I don’t know, but it would be nice.

My only feature request is for a volume trim in the top right corner. These sound great driven hard and it’s impossible to keep a good gain structure, or objectively A/B compare without balanced level at the output. Steven Slate has said a free trim module is coming soon, but I feel it should be integrated into the rack, rather than as a processor. You can’t argue with feelings.

Have you ever noticed that waveforms sometimes resemble certain other things? In this video Geoff and Gavin from Rooster Teeth pass the time trying to draw dicks with their mouth sounds.

 

 

Can you do better?

Another great video from Glenn at Spectre Media Group.

 

Are you applying pitch correction, sample replacement and quantizing instruments without considering what it does to the emotional impact of the song? Knock that shit off!

Mastodon Making of Once More ‘Round the Sun

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Mastodon has published four short videos documenting the process of recording their latest album Once More ‘Round the Sun. There’s not a lot to learn from these videos – they’re not tutorials of course – but you might get a kick out of seeing all the sweet guitars and other gear.
One thing I found particularly interesting was how guitarist Brent Hinds does a lot of his single-note picking parts right at the bridge. This is something I can steal for my recordings!
