i might be wrong, but i think it's done with a low pass filter as you said and drawing a parameter for the cutoff frequency and gradually increasing it.


Do you know if there's a way of automating what you said in FL8?

i have no idea, ive never used fruity loops. isn't there a way of editing specific parameters on filters and then drawing them out?

the fabfilter guys are great interface designers

i still dont understand why you dont like the sonalksis EQ.

what you should do is record a bassline and apply the same curve across all EQs and do a blind test for sound.


word. that's what i did originally but i used the sonalksis, psp neon and pro tools eq. even though psp neon is a linear phase and introduces like 6000ms of latency cus it's so accurate.. it was BARELY better then pro tools eq. pro tools eq is amazing. i read it was the only eq bjork used on her last album. didn't really like the sonalksis eq back then but after trying it out last night it's not as bad as i remembered.

i hate fabfilters interfaces, i don't care about design or looks i just care about functionality and they've just never done it for me. like on their pro-q.. i love it, but it's ridiculous that you can't see all the bands at once. you have to scroll through them with those stupid arrow keys. just a waste of my time. and timeless is neat but why can't they just make the plugin window bigger instead of having those stupid arrows i have to click and drag just to see the whole interface? it looks pretty but it isn't fast or easy for me. i don't get it.

still haven't found my magic eq yet. i don't like any of them enough to call them home so right now i'm using glisseq, pro-q and sonalksis. kind of a drag.

this guy is making the most insane freeware plugins ive ever heard. holy-mother-of-god. they could be in waves!

http://arnout.engelen.eu/files/video/

the best mixing tips/tricks video i've ever seen. specifically for dance music. it's by a russian guy (main guy of synSUN) so as an added bonus his broken english is fucking hilarious. but seriously good stuff otherwise.

both the plugins and the video are NOT geared towards beginners. if you're a beginner.. bookmark them and come back to them in a year.

I think interface design/interface & functionality are directly related. It's def a preference issue so whatever works for you.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to put the features you want into a list and send it out to the people designing the plugins. They might just ignore you, maybe, but constructive criticism about their product from users is gold.

I assume they keep an eye on what people are saying anyhow. Maybe the fabfilter guys will address these issues in upcoming releases.

I love finding tools to better my work flow. I just got pathfinder for mac os and it makes me wonder why apple hasn't bought it yet.

What's the word on these? If these all do what they say they do, and well, this is gold.
I was looking for a tube preamp sim the other day actually. The transient aware saturator and exciters sound sexy too.

Right click the cutoff frequency parameter on whatever filter/effect you're using and select create automation clip. Cakesauce from there, just click and drag points on a line.

set the input on the vsti channels to whatever midi controller you want to play it (default is 'all'), then make sure that exclusive arming is disabled in the prefs. or just set them to separate midi channels and set the corresponding channels on your midi controller itself.

or, live 8 has the ability to launch two instances at once. it's not that cpu intensive on its own so no big deal. if you don't have live 8 just install two different versions of live like 7.0.1 and 7.0.2, then you can launch them simultaneously.

yeah they're slick man. not a big fan of a couple of them but the other four or five are amazing. the nasty series is the best if you want stuff that's like distorted saturated. the transient saturator and the other one (i forgot what it's called) are alot more subtle.

the real prize is rescueAE.. go put it on something stereo and twist knobs. amaaazing.

Hey

I've been using Reason for a while and now looking for another DAW mainly for sequencing/mastering purpose (rewiring Reason) and the occasionnal VSTis hosting ...

I'm using a PC, hate the FL layout so it's pretty much Ableton vs Cubase (I don't want any of those underground DAWs)

Any input?

THANKS

I'd say go with Ableton if you kinda just want to jump right in, it's a little bit easier to set up than Cubase, takes up less memory and less HD space. Ableton is definitely easier to learn but Cubase isn't a bad program.

Does anyone know which drum-kit is used for this track and how to process them in order to get the sound?

Please help!
