Here’s a review of what I have found to be the best bus compressor plugins. I use these guys all the time on my mix bus – or the master bus – however you wanna call it. [Read more…] about The Best Bus Compressor Plugins
Last year marked my 20th year releasing electronic music as an artist.
I started dabbling with electronic music and made my first tracks already back in 1996. But I started releasing music to the public in the following year. Back then I was using tracker software to make music and I ran a tracker scene label called Rebound. We released more than 100 tracks as free downloads within a timespan of about 4 years.
This post is a response to a request I’ve had multiple times in the past year alone: What do I think are the best Waves plugins?
There’s a request I keep getting regularly. It comes in different shapes and forms but the gist is always the same. Here’s an example of an email I received:

If you were to ask 100 producers whether they use presets or create their own original sounds, you would probably find the results to be pretty evenly split. While some producers use presets as they are, or tweak them a little, others refuse to use any sound they didn’t create themselves. This is a fiercely debated topic. In this article, we’ll examine the merits of both sides, and then go over one way you can use presets to your advantage when it comes to learning and doing sound design.
