Loopmasters Has New Stuffs!!!

As a huge fan of Loopmasters and their sister site Plugin Boutique, it is always huge news when they drop something new on us. Earlier in the week Plugin Boutique announced iZotope‘s Stutter Edit had become available. Now Loopmasters has, “Patchworx.” It’s a line of patches and presets specifically for the soft-synths we have come to cherish almost as much as their hardware ancestors. Here is their link for some free presets!

New Production Tutorials Page!

So I’ve started doing a few audio production tutorials here and there. If people seem to like it, or if it seems like my tutorials are helpful to people then I will keep making them too! I want to try to give back to the community that has given me so much recently. There aren’t any other people on the internet quite like audio producers!

Speaking of producers; my friend Fraser Murray has his own blog over at http://alpha-phase.com/ where he’s got some great bits. Oh AND he will soon be adding my tutorials to his page! Go over there and encourage him to get his Podcast started, of which I am on the list to be a guest. So we need all the help we can get. Like the pages, share the posts, comment on the vids! You help this content get to the people who need to see it. I scoured the internet looking for answers about sidechaining with 3rd party VSTs in Ableton. Most places were people on forums saying it wasn’t possible and that you were stuck using Ableton’s native compressor. (Which is a great compressor too!) I knew this couldn’t be the case and so I pressed on. Eventually I found it… buried comfortable amidst a list of search results for “Multiband Compression”, a different subject entirely. I will provide a link to the original tutorial on my tutorial page for Sidechaining 3rd Party VSTs. I want it to be easier for people like you and me to find this kind of information presented in a way that makes it easy to understand if you’re following along. At any rate, I did find the information and it’s to those people that I want to say, “Big Ups!” and give back some of their awesomeness!

Using Sample Packs


I just purchased the first pack of samples I’ve ever purchased from SoundsToSample.com. I got them for my birthday so I’m real excited to dig in and start making some jacked up Electro House! The sample pack is called, “Complex Electro Synths” and is available on Beatport, SoundsToSample, PrimeLoops, etc…

So far I’ve loved every sample in the pack. I think it’s going to end up being my “goto” source for great samples! I’ll keep you updated here.
