For those of you wanting to beef up your VI's and plug-ins, there is a Computer Music Magazine Special Edition out on newstands right now that has a DVD with 150 free plug-ins, many of which are truly great! Just one of them alone has to be worth the $15.99 US price of the zine. There are tutorials and guides in the zine and on the DVD. There are Drums, Samplers, ROMplers, Utilities, Synths of all sorts, several FX, Guitar fx and even a couple DAW freebies (like Reaper!).
For those who use Pro Tools and have the FXpansion VST-RTAS Wrapper, many of these (though not all) will wrap quite nicely and work just fine in PT. But if you use Reaper inside Pro Tools, then you should be able to use ALL of them if you wish...though probably not all at once!
i was reamping some tracks on Tuesday when I went to switch amps to get a differnt sound for second track I made a bad mistake and forgot to plug in the speaker. and of all the amps it had to be my mesa single rectifier. after of couple days of being very pissed I thought to myself maybe its just the fuse.has anybody else ever done this and if so what damage was caused.
did you need to retube as well or just replace the fuse.
New Real-Time Temporal Modulation Technology Ensures You're Always "In the Pocket"
We here at Antares are once again hugely excited to announce our next generation of technology dedicated to the democratization of music creation. Having essentially eliminated the need for talent (or musicians) with our proposed Direct Mind Access (DMA) Musical Composition Technology, we're now addressing the challenges of live performance with our revolutionary Auto-Beat™ Real-Time Temporal Modulation Technology.
You've probably all been there. You and your bandmates are running through your repertoire of screamin' new tunes, but no matter how much you rehearse, the rhythm section just can't seem to lock in to the rhythm. Try as they might, they always seem to be slightly behind the beat. (While some have suggested that locking in is the combined responsibility of the drummer and bassist, we have a number of bassists here in the Antares Crew and they all assure us that it's always the drummer.)
Building on the same neurocognitive research that fueled Dr. Andy's DMA technology, Auto-Beat technology provides real-time correction of drummers who consistently play behind the beat. Using a proprietary 500ms temporal look-ahead field, Auto-Beat is constantly monitoring the drummer's performance up to a half second in the future. In the same way that Auto-Tune corrects each of a singer's notes to perfect target pitches, Auto-Beat's temporal modulation field will instantly pull each drum hit from the future into the present on the perfect beat. It's as simple as that.
Dr. Andy, equipped with the original prototype Cognitive Realtime Audio Processor, searches eBay for a good deal on a lightly used flux capacitor.
In addition to the cranially implanted Cognitive Realtime Audio Processor and micro-Bluetooth communication unit developed for DMA, Auto-Beat also requires a late-model flux capacitor to drive the temporal modulation system. Additionally, if you don't already have a portable power source capable of providing the required 1.21 gigawatts to power the flux capacitor, we recommend a Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor as a useful accessory.
Important Note: Auto-Beat only functions at tempos of at least 88 BPM or faster. Slower than that and you're on your own.
Auto-Beat™. Watch for it in the future. From your friends at Antares.
