au lost presets

I'm new to Mac world, and there's a couple of things that are puzzling me. AU. When I install a au version of a plugin (eg. impOscar), i can't find the plugin banks and presets, and even if I do, I'm not sure how to load them...the little open folder icon is missing... VSTs I have a lovely collectio...

Re: Playing out using live in windows on a macbook pro?

Classic. I've seen this question asked many times, and always people have to rag about why run windows on mac, or they tell you to get mac equivalent effects, or to get a pcetc. Well, some of us have been working on music for a long time, and for some reason decided to switch (or to try) the alterna...

Re: Resampling softsynth trick?

Would be cool if this would be a feature of sampler....Load vst in sampler, render chromatic, unload, voila new patch. Direct wave in fruity can do this, but the problem is, it has it's own file format, can't open this in sampler. I know. Directwave does it very nicely but the idea for me is to be ...

Peak? RMS? opto?

Hey all,

I was wondering; when do you change this options in the compressor plugin? I usually leave it at the default position and just work with the threshold, ratio, attack and release, but i never touch this buttons. I also never change the ff1/ff2/fb settings....

What's the storrrry?

Bat for lashes vocal effect

The song Daniel

I'm trying to emulate that vocal effect on my girl. It's very Stevie Nicks-ey. Is is just a bright reverb?

Anyone?

keeping projects light and clean

Not sure if I'm doing this right but I just started using a couple of features that make things more simple and keep my hard drive from over-flowing. When I'm recording some vocals, and I have like 6 or more takes, i go through them one by one, deleting all the crappy parts and silences. I slice the...

Redline monitor Ableton clone

Has anyone tried to emulate the effect of the Redline monitor headphone mixing tool with some Ableton utilities/eq's? http://www.112db.com/redline/monitor/ It just seems that this would be possible to achieve with the plugins we have at hand... When the kids are sleeping and I want to keep on workin...

Re: gimme yer sub bass

Thanks Levimoniz! I apreciate the props, and I totally catch your drift with the couple of suggestions. I've never really tried the downpitched 808 kick for bottom sub....I'll give it a try.
Peace,
