I guess I’m not the only one who feels a wee bit crippled with Pro Tools 11. So far it seems like a solid upgrade, or at least I think it is, but damn, there’s a lot less plugins available!
If you’ve ever wondered why the Swedish flag is blue and yellow… Hello friends. Trying a different kind of post today. Some would call it an organized update (but they would be wrong), some would call it the ramblings of a madman who should just go have some coffee instead (they would be partially right), […]
We can discuss sound quality and differences between analog and digital until we’re all blue in the face but what the somewhat odd title of this post suggests is that software, or rather the tools we use to control the software, is lacking.
If you have been up all night drinking wine and chasing a gang with a golf club (don’t ask) instead of sleeping, there really are only to viable options: 1) you go to sleep, or 2) you stay awake until the next night and record a drinking or party song. I went with the latter […]
Depending on what mood I’m in, I’m a big synth freak or hardly use them at all. At this year’s Musikmesse I was the former and since I was so into it, I decided to dedicate one day almost only to trying out different synths. I say almost because partly it was about weißbier and […]

Happy new year to all of you! I hope you had a good one and that the next one will be even better! What better time could there be to post this video of Frankie, laying down the law in the studio, recording the classic “It was a very good year”. I also wanted to […]
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a powerful plugin manager directly inside Pro Tools? Instead of going to the directory in Finder to move plugins to the unused folder, one could simply fire up the Plugin manager. It could of course be taken many steps further, for instance looking for updates, organizing into folders, etc.,etc.
Not long ago, Sugar Bytes released TransVST, a “wrapper” that would allow you to run VST plugins as AAX plugins inside Pro Tools 10. The ProToolers rejoiced. Their happiness was short lived, the product disappeared and it was revealed on forums and websites that Avid was to blame. A short statement was made by Avid. […]
