Eiosis AirEQ Premium Review

A while back I received a copy of Eiosis AirEQ Premium to try out (thanks Eiosis). I’ve been using it now for a good couple of months – here are my thoughts.

AirEQ is a plugin designed by Fabrice Gabriel. Together with Steven Slate he is also responsible of many of the great Slate Digital plugins. So needless to say I had pretty high expectations of this EQ.

Reflecting 2014

As we begin our journey into 2015, I wanted to take a moment to look back into the past year and make notes of some of my personal highlights.

Workflow things, books, plugins, tools, music, websites, general wellbeing and productivity… This is a very personal list and some of the stuff I’ll be mentioning doesn’t sound like anything to do with music production. Never the less it all has made a difference for my work.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 Review – Is It Worth the Price?

I recently bought the brand new FabFilter Pro Q 2 EQ plugin.

I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and I have to say it’s become one of my favorite plugins ever! However as far as plugins come, at 149€ it may seem a bit costly.

I am all about sharing information about the stuff I like and use so let’s see what the deal is. Here’s my little review.

The Best Free AAX Plugins (2014 edition)

I’ve recently jumped on Pro Tools 11 for mixing. I’ve only worked with VST/AU compatible hosts before (Logic, Ableton Live). Now with Pro Tools I’ve been introduced to a new plugin format, the AAX.

The plugin fiend I am, I’ve been scouring the internets for the best free AAX plugins to add to my fresh Pro Tools setup. I’ve posted about the best free VST and AU plugins before and now it’s time to take a look at what’s available in AAX. And boy do we have some goodies on offer! Continue Reading

New resource page is up!

Last week I asked my email subscribers what kind of content would they like to see here in the future. Your response was overwhelming (a big thank you is in order – I think I’ve got back to most of you by now but apologies if I missed someone!). One of the most common requests I received was to hear more about which plugins, sample packs, books, websites, tools and so on I like to use in my craft.

To answer your call, I have created a new page that lists the things that I use and love the most. I have also included comments for each resource on why I like it/how I am using it.

I’ll be adding more too as time goes by, so you may want to bookmark the page and visit every now and then.

Have a look.

TDR VOS SlickEQ – The Free EQ Plugin Setting New Standards

TDR-SlickEQ-main-flat

 

Today is a great day for free plugins. Tokyo Dawn Labs has just released their latest VST/AU plugin called “TDR VOS SlickEQ”. I’m lucky to have been involved with the beta testing of this plugin (yes I am very happily biased with Tokyo Dawn since about 15 years now..those who know, know). So I’ve been putting the EQ to work lately. It’s a winner.

Pensado’s Place – “Into the Lair” – Essential Lessons

I am a big fan of Dave Pensado and his Pensado’s Place show. I just love this guy. If you don’t know him already, he’s a Grammy Award winning mixing engineer who’s mixed Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Pink, Mary J. Blige… Well, you get the picture.

I especially like the “Into the Lair” section of his shows where he explains various aspects of his work in detail. All of his videos are great so I really recommend you to watch all of it. But it’s a lot to go through, so I wanted to put together a collection of “Into the Lair” clips from Pensados Place that have been especially interesting and helpful to me. Below each video, I’ve also included some bonus notes from myself.Continue Reading
