Circumflex & Efate – Wir fliegen

Thanks to Michael for this really great summer tune – what a great mix!

Featuring:

  • NastyDLA on the synth sum
  • NastyDLA on the main sample
  • NastyDLA as a send effect
  • epicVerb as a send reverb
  • Density mkII for the entire vocal group

He also claims: “For STEM-Mixing I’ve used the BootEQ mkII for the vocals upfront going analog to the pult.”

working ITB at higher sampling rates

Recently, I’ve moved from 44.1kHz up to 96kHz sampling rate for my current production. I would have loved to do this step earlier but it wasn’t possible with the older DAW generation in my case. With the newer stuff I was easily able to run a 44.1kHz based production with tons of headroom (resource wise – talking about CPU plus memory and disk space) and so I switched to 96kHz SR and still there is some room left.

I know there is a lot of confusion and misinformation floating around about this topic and so this small article is about to give some theoretical insights from a developer perspective as well as some hands-on tips for all those who are considering at what SR actually to work at. The title already suggests working ITB (In The Box) and I’ll exclude SR topics related to recording, AD/DA converters or other external digital devices. [Read more…]

hardware makes you look good

“Hardware ist schön, Hardware ist groß, Hardware kleidet sehr gut” – as stated by Christoph Kemper (developer of the famous Access Virus) in a recent interview for the german Musotalk online magazine.

While this was held in the context of the developments of his brand new “Kemper Profiling Amp” and about what we still actually see on a typical live stage today (and what is just a fake), it still seems to be the paradigm in quite some studios as well.
