This Arturia FX Collection is INSANE!! Mixing hip hop Vocals 2020

A video review of Arturia's new FX collection. The results you get are insane! using their new reverb. I demonstrate these VST/AU plugins on hip hop vocals. The name of the song is called "6th sense" written and performed by Alamar (and mixed and mastered by me). I recommend trying the demo first before buying (it last for 30 days w/o limitations!). I'm very curious on how it will work with their Audio Fuse software. How do you feel about this collection? Please leave a comment below!

AKAI MPC One - A Hip Hop Producer Review

A video review of the AKAI MPC One from a hip hop producer prospective! It's hands on so you get to see it in action. This drum sampler is a 100% standalone unit. However, it can work as a hybrid controller and Audio Interface. The MPC software can be hosted as a VST or it's own standalone DAW!!! Don't worry this isn't sponsored by AKAI! I bought it from Sweetwater.com. This was my highest anticipated gear from Winter NAMM2020, but does it kill my hype? How do you feel about this review. Please leave a comment ..

AKAI Pro Force'd ME 2 Do This Review!

A video review of the AKAI Force. Yes, I finally got my hands on and want to share my unbiased opinion. If I would of paid $1500 for this unit on the original release date. I would be PISSED!!! However, AKAI made clean strides to right the wrongs with several updates (with another firmware update to bring song/arrangement mode at the end of the 1st quarter). I find this standalone unit to be almost everything any musician needs to create great music. Though, it still needs improvements. Tell me how do you feel about this? Please leave a comment below!

This VST Effect is the Secret Sauce?!!?

A review video about DJ Swivel new VST/AU/AXX plugin called "The Sauce". It's a vocal chain plugin that works on both Windows and MacOSX (but oddly didn't work for me in Ableton Live?). This plugin uses hipster terms to describe the following effects: Flavor is Pitch shifting, Spread is stereo separation, Drip is a bpm synced delay with a ping pong option, Spice is distortion, Sugar is a chorus effect, Squeeze is compression, and Smoke is a reverb? All the effects are fine tunes and a simplified for beginners. Though, experts might find these effects useful too!

SSL2+ Audio Interface! Why I'm Worried

A tech new video talking about Solid State Logics new audio interface called the "SSL2+". I talk about why I'm a bit worried about it. One thing no one asked or demonstrated was the software side on this audio interface. Will it have virtual routing software like it's competition (example UAD, Focusrite, and Arturia have virtual routing software. My second concern is the lack of I/O's. Where the ADAT in? ADAT in would make it flexible for all kinds of engineers. How do you feel about this audio interface? Please leave a comment below!

A Free download Friday video about the Backmask plugin by Freakshow Industries. It's a free reverse VST/AU effect plugin for Win/MacOSX. Instead of using the word "free" on the website. They use the word "steal" because you can purchase a license for it too. I though I make a big deal about for a cheap laugh or two! What do you think about this plugin?
