Is it Monday already?

Judging from your replys & my own personal experience, I would say that everyone who records music is into Sound-Design (big time). At a basic level, we have to sort out all the frequencies, in order for the invividual parts to fit together! Starting out with a 'rough sound' has never worked for me....

Nick the (not so) Zombie

You said: It's a lot more time consuming to bring a synth up to the same level of expressiveness, and indeed most people don't take the time to do so. I like that. You're after planting a seed there! How do you create a truly unique style on a synth? No matter what you hit the keys with, it'll never...

Presets

My own thought about presets is as follows; Coming from a guitar playing background, my Acoustic six string only ever had one basic preset! It is a commonly known fact that it's how you play an instrument, that determines the outcome. Lets talk electric guitars with FX processing. If I picked up Edd...

VST Plugins & Ableton Live 7.0.14 (FX FREEZE)

I wasn't quite sure where to post this question! Let's just say that I'm a little bit confused :) 01] Does anybody know exactly what happens when Ableton loads VST FX & VST Instruments?

Dear NOISE :)

Yeah, I tried that and same (error) story as yesterday. I've written to Audio Realism to notify them but have not received a reply as of yet! I've also Deleted My Browsing History as old page information which is stored locally on a PC for 'quicker access' can also cause problems. No joy! Last night...

Thank You R.A.W - We're off to a good start!

Using Audio Realism products with Ableton Live 7.0.14

Some people hate questions like this. They call it lazy. I think it wise to ask from the experts & then implement that knowledge in my own unique way! After some searching, I recently purchased two products by Audio Realism . . . ABL Pro & ADM! Now that I have what I consider to be superb products, ...
