We often use .mp3. Maybe too often? Mp3 has some benefits over .wav – especially file size. But beside that there are some cons when it comes to audio quality. Sonnox created a tool, which makes these codec problems audible and help you to prevent from bad encoding.

Radio is consumed on a wide range of speakers – from iPads, Laptops, mobile Phones, Headphones and of course radio.. But most of the time we produce just on our own systems, without really checking for other ones. For this case, I used to listen to my stuff on different devices like my mobile phone or laptop. […]

iZotope’s VocalSynth was well discussed on different forums, especially on Facebook. The iZotope developers dropped a multi tasking vocoder which could be an answer to the right vocoder and the sound of now. I had a look at it for you.

Nevertheless delays play an important role in my session. Then, back in August, Paris based Plugin company UVI released a new delay which really had my attention: Relayer. […]

I have the feeling British plugin factory Sonalksis is a company acting more in the background, developing constantly plugins in Liverpool. They’re based there since 2002, supplying the market with characteristic plugins. As a part of their catalogue, I came across the Creative Bundle – it consists of three powerful plugins and today I’ll share my experience […]

When you watch the product video of Greg Well’s VoiceCentric plugin, you will hear the sentence “I just can open it and within 5 seconds, I get the sound I’m looking for.” Sounds interesting, so let’s see whether this is right!
