Like many plugin developers, also Waves frequently does special sale offers. Of course we don’t need all of their plugins, but some of them are really good ones. We are still in love with th Waves API emulations, the Waves Q10 or the Waves TransX.
Sadly Waves is kinda expensive normally for all of us highly motivated, but still poor producer-nerds… but Waves frequently does specials. With these specials they offer entire packages for several thousands of dollars (muahaha…), and even single plugins go down to a third of the official price. And if you know what you really need, this comes handy bigtime. We highly recommend to bookmark their specials: http://www.waves.com/specials.
This month they got the Waves L3-16 Multimaximizer on sale for 200US$ (instead of 550US$). Which is a really fair, if you ask us. But even better is: Plugin-Discounts got this offer even cheaper. You sadly need to register for a free account on their site and check their prices yourself, since we are not allowed to post their prices to public. But we can assure you, you will most likely not find it cheaper anywhere else… Continue reading →
Berlin based producer Alexander Krüger aka Dub Taylor aka Tigerskin aka Korsakow put his diligent fingers on the just released Roland Aira TR8. As he also got a MIDI’fied original 808, his comparison is kinda helpful for all ppl considering this device as a much cheaper alternative.
The video has not been shot with professional equipment, but with a consumer iPhone. Alex’ is music producer, not a video artist. And yes, we know the soundquality of an iPhone video ain’t outstanding, but it is definitely sufficient to get a basic understanding of what is soundwise close to the original and what is not.
James Bernard of Dubspot kindly provides us with two introduction tutorials into the newest DAW in the market. He explains, how to use Bitwig and what outstanding new features it contains.
So, if you didn’t have the chance to check Bitwig Studio out yet, you should consider taking these 11 minutes in total for both tutorials and learn about Bitwig Studio’s (if you ask us: awesome) possibilities. Stay tuned… Continue reading →

With all those different Apple Computers available like Mac Mini’s, Mac Book Air’s, Mac Pro’s, why the hell should we consider setting up a hackintosh these days, since a Mac Mini comes at a price tag of only 600€ here in Europe?
Well the answer to this is quite simple. Hackintoshs aim at people who are basically interested in understanding and tweeking. If you just wanna use you Mac for Mails and a bit of internet-surfing a hackintosh is most likely the wrong thing for you.
But if you are artist for instance, dealing with audio- or video-editing a hackintosh definitely comes a lot more handy than an original Mac. The reason is simple: original Macs have become a lot less flexible when it comes to manual hardware upgrading during the last eight years. Let’s take the latest Mac Pro for instance. The design is still outstanding, but this design comes at the price that Apple entirely dropped the PCIe Bus architecture. What means, that we cannot use dedicated DSP, soundcards or videocards in that device anymore and need to switch to Firewire or Thunderbolt solutions. Which is an additional economical strain.

Moog’s gonna introduce a new analog synthesizer on their upcoming Moogfest. Well, german seems to become the next hipster language… there is not much detail known at the moment, but Synthopia got pictures of that beauty. Enjoy…
Well, in case you just upgraded from Snow Leopard to Mavericks (like we did ;-) ) and your Waves plugins don’t behave as expected a new installation of Waves could make sense, but first things first. A proper uninstallation does not always work entirely well with Waves’ uninstaller. So in case something goes wrong, follow these steps for manual uninstallation: Continue reading →
