Re: iLok Cloud

At the risk of (yet again) being a damp squib, I'm not too excited about this, for the following reasons: 1. You need to be online, or - seemingly - it won't let you in. Nope. 2. It's up to developers as to whether or not they support the feature - it's not an automatic thing. Which is significant b...

Re: Brusfri - Noice Reducer plug-in

I know I know! I feel your pain. When it's something out of the ordinary I ask for extra time (I had to take out a screaming (literally screaming) disabled person present in an audience recorded show. A one hour show.... sigh. That was sooo tedious, I charged an extra day and they gratefully paid. B...

Re: Brusfri - Noice Reducer plug-in

...and I'm still in my procrastination phase of the morning, so for "fun" I spend 10 minutes on it in RX6 Spectral Repair - https://app.box.com/s/x7daow058rv57y9ygy4eota4jc01gli7 . It's not perfect - more time spent = better result, but still it's clearly the best of any of them imo. But y...

Re: Brusfri - Noice Reducer plug-in

Thanks for taking the time to do that, Anders. Have to say that's an extremely challenging example - I actually wouldn't use any broad NR tool on that, since the problem areas aren't constant. I'd load it into RX Spectral Repair, find the HF I needed in the speech and then attenuate the area around ...

Re: iZotope O8N2: Ozone 8 Neutron 2 [12th Oct - upgrade price drop]

I've read a few positive comments from those with the plugins, especially with regard to the tonal balance element. This is a fairly interesting piece from the designer of the tech with a lot more detail on how it was created and how it works. https://www.izotope.com/en/community/blog/product-news/2...

Re: Brusfri - Noice Reducer plug-in

Yes, I noticed that too Anders, except those claps at the end, and you can hear a bit of work going on. But it's pretty damn good, and I'd take those artefacts over the noise. What might be more of an issue is a lack of sensitivity control, it varies wildly for me how aggressive you need to be with ...

Re: Coming November: VSL Synchron Strings I

I can't tell a thing from that demo really - sounds ok to me, but any existing half decent library could sound pretty similar. I agree with most of these comments - definitely cheaper (417 euros for the standard version) and quicker (6 months after percussion) than I expected too, and also surprised...

Re: UVI Falcon: 30% off, 2 free expansions and $100 of UVI libraries

I sorta feel bad posting that video (though it's my favourite on the internet) - it's my age talking. I really don't want to have to learn any new DAWs (unless they are impeccably designed), and I've found that goes for synths. I really am far better to keep learning the tools I have, but in no way ...

Mario, could you point to 1 (one) video of Dan's that shows it at its most unique? I do some sound design of this kind, but it's pretty marginal... if I saw a WOW video of something incredible thats achievable comprehensibly (i.e. the learning curve wouldn't be too extreme), it might tip me.

UVI Falcon: 30% off, 2 free expansions and $100 of UVI libraries

So that's 244 Euros. Undeniably a good deal, it looks incredibly impressive and has a good reputation - lots of threads here of happy campers - but I still can't imagine I need it. Anyone fancy convincing me that, in fact, I do?

I might have it wrong, but to me companies like Soundtoys and Fab Filter are both wonderful I'm sure, but I only ever seem to see the same kinds of variations on the usual themes.

Another day another Waves sale, but this does look an especially big one, with up to 80% off everything.
