    Softube Tube-Tech CL1B MK2 Compressor - Anyone Upgrade?

    Cannot comment on the Waves PuigTec EQs - never tested them. But Waves seems to throw them out very cheap at the moment ($34.50). My personal preference is towards Softube though.

    Softube Tube-Tech CL1B MK2 Compressor - Anyone Upgrade?

    The Tube-Tech CL 1B (Legacy and Mk II Native) is my go-to-compressor for nearly all vocal tracks, usually as a complete classic channel strip with the EQs PE 1C and ME 1B. The Mk II adds the option for parallel compression and mid/side-processing but I am still used to and prefer the GUI of the...

    Best headphones for writing/mixing?

    I also had the Sennheiser HD 650 and returned them. With their high impedance they need a suitable headphone amplifier and I was not willing to buy one. Powered by my Focusrite interface they sounded too dull to me. But with the right amplifier they are loved by many audiophiles. I got the...

    Albion One vs Metropolis Ark 1

    Great comparison, Will! Albion One and MA1 have been my first libraries and it is hard to say which one is better, it very much depends on personal preference and the sound you are looking for. Starters should also look at the sequels of both series and how they fit to their musical style: For...

    Townsend Labs Sphere L22 - What is your experience?

    Thanks for the link to the Virtual Mic Shootout! As an engineer I very much appreciate the technical approach in this shootout to get an objective and unbiased comparison between the originals and their virtual mates. With the audio files everyone can blind test on his own (I recommend the HOFA...

    Townsend Labs Sphere L22 - What is your experience?

    There are quite a few "Which microphone should I use for..." threads in this forum but not much information yet about the Townsend Labs Sphere L22 that promises to reproduce the characteristics of some legends like U47/67/87, C12 & C800G. The technical concept of the L22 seems to be...

    Samsung T5 External SSD 500GB on iMac late 2013?

    I run the Samsung T5 External SSD 500GB with my Mac Mini (Late 2012) over USB 3.0 and it works fine. Read/Write speeds are >400MB/sec (only around 15% slower than my internal SSD). Be careful with the choice of the file system for initial formatting of the drive. I would still prefer the older...

    Best studio monitors for price/quality?

    In my homestudio I work with a pair of Adam A5X and I am very happy with them. Combined with the Sub7 subwoofer the frequency range is pretty flat down to 30Hz and the stereo imaging is superb. I had the luck to work with some high-end Geithains in a professional studio and to be honest the...

    Microphone recommendation

    In the mid-price range I would also recommend the AKG C414 XLS. It is a standard in many professional studios, has a neutral frequency response, low noise, switchable polar patterns and the current price of <700€ in Europe is very fair. It can be used for all kinds of acoustic instruments and I...

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    Also bought the Ark 1+2 bundle and to my surprise everything went without problems with Continuata's Connect in contrast to others experience. I did request the manual links but never received them so I took the risk with Connect. Fortunately I chose Download Only in the settings. After the...

    Solo Vocals

    100% agree to your recommendation VIs are perfect for orchestras, choirs and other ensembles which you cannot afford or organize as real musicians but they cannot replace the human touch of a real singer (at least for now...).

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    Finally grabbed the Ark 1+2 bundle for that fantastic sales price and now I am on a long journey of downloading and installing until I reach the DARK SIDE OF THE SOUND... :cool:

    Save up to 63% on orchestral tools

    I am quite new to the VI-world and after using the Logic on-board instruments and some Nexus2 stuff for many years I recently bought Albion One and Requiem Light. I mostly produce orchestra-enhanced rock or metal music (call it Symphonic Rock/Metal). Albion Iceni seemed so far the next logical...

I play the guitar since 35yrs and regularly try to improve my modest skills at the keyboard. My favourite composers from the past...
