I’m sure you already heard about MS processing. We found a plugin which picks up this idea, but expands it in its own way. DrMS by Mathew Lane has an interesting approach to process busses, tracks or even your master. And this kind of processing does not exist in any other plugin yet. Let’s have a look at this pioneer […]

Plugins get simpler. That’s an evolution I am noticing since a few years now. Especially Waves is known for their One Knob series. Now iZotope joins this trend and released a plugin which is meant to improve your mix: Neutrino. And it’s free. Let’s see how it works.

Radio is consumed on a wide range of speakers – from iPads, Laptops, mobile Phones, Headphones and of course radio..
