Hey guys, it’s Andre. Working in a radio imaging service team is a great thing, because I never have to stick to one format or genre. I am able to create work parts for any kind of radio format, style or genre. Pop, Dance Music, Hip Hop, Rock, Classic Hits, Country and much more, almost […]

Hi guys, it’s Andre. Today I’m going to show you how to create a saw riser in NI’s Massive.  This is a pretty common effect in dance music and a great way to create tension before the drop. Instead of taking just an ordinary riser from a sample library, I’m going to show you how to […]

Hey guys, it’s Andre. While our Christmas contest voting is getting into the crucial phase, it’s time for most us get calm down a bit and get ready for Christmas. It’s a bit hard to get in a festive mood, when the only weather, I’ve seen for days is rain, but being with the friends and family […]

Hey guys, it’s Andre. Playing around with voices is one of the coolest things you can do in radio imaging and we’re always experimenting with various plugin chains and settings to create some unique and hot effects on our VO. Especially when it comes to hotter formats, the effects get pretty crazy. But I’m here […]

Hey guys, it’s Andre. Christmas is coming closer every day. Like  retail sale, many stations made that massive switch to Christmas right after Thanksgiving was over. Especially in AC radio, you’re getting overwhelmed by Christmas imaging these days. Also the music changes. It’s getting softer, more lovely, many classics from the years before step back […]

Hey guys, it’s Andre. Today, I’m going to revive a classic effect known as FM Synthesis. FM means frequency modulation and that explains it pretty much. One Oscillator’s frequency is getting modulated which creates that well-known metallic sound. I rebuilt that effect in NI’s Massive synth And that is my basic template. What does it […]

Hi guys, it’s Andre. While I was sampling some of my software instruments on the lookout for new sounds for possible FX and Drones, I stumbled over this little fun tool, I almost forgot about – Native Instruments’ Skanner. Skanner was released for free a while ago and is now back as Skanner XT, an […]

Hey Guys, it’s Moe! I’m sure you all know this: You have to finish some Elements with Pro Tools, but the Program runs really slow and crashes all the time. That’s really annoying and also costs you a lot of time. The only solution for that is to delete your Digidesign databases and your Pro […]

Hey everybody, it’s Moe! As I told you in my last post, this was my first week doing Urban AC Brandings for Benztown’s Speaker Toyz AC format. And, what can I say, it was so much fun and I’ve learned a lot about imaging this really smooth and reliable Radio Format. One of the most important things […]

Hey everyone! I’m sure you’ve read about that “upcoming co writer” in one of André’s previous Posts. Here he is 😉 : My Name is Moritz and I’m really proud to tell you that I’m going to be a permanent part of the Benztown Branding team for the next years while doing the trainee program […]
