Re: Mastering tutorial: what it can do, what it can't do

Thanks Vespers! I actually bought the book because you introduced me to Mr. Perrine's work and I must say that I am impressed!

Re: How to make turntable stops & sound FX in Ableton Live

There are a few ways to do this, another is using the Ping Pong Delay's repitch mode. Oh, yeah, I hadn't thought of that. Any particular rationale with using the Ping Pong Delay versus just a straight up Simple Delay in Repitch mode? I would think the stereo imaging and filter would alter the sound...

With the rate at which new software is coming out, it's possible to be a student your entire life and a master never. The jack of all trades and master of none. So many people I come acros...

Re: Dubstep remix of Rennie Foster Devil's Water

Thanks for that. I was distracted though with too many sounds that reminded me of Star Wars and Pod racing effects :oops: It was quite a cold sounding track to me.
