outboarding school

There are a few reasons that vintage effects processors still remain hugely sought after today. There’s their characterful sound for one thing, as well as association with thousands of classic records. Let’s be honest, there’s also the fact that they look very cool, and a rack of vintage outboard can add a whole lot of credibility to your studio.There’s more to their appeal than all of that though. Through years of use, out of both necessity and dedication, engineers have figured out how to precisely tweak and exploit the topology of these units, to the point that they can be used almost like instruments. Look at the famous Pulteq boost/attenuate trick, or the ‘all buttons’ compression mode of the 1176. These are more than simple effects settings – they’re…

ni unveil more details of massive x

It’s no exaggeration to say that Native Instruments’ Massive X is one of the most eagerly-awaited plugin synths in history. Announced in 2018 alongside the Komplete 12 bundle, we were initially told that it would be released in February of 2019, but this date then slipped, and detail has been scant.Now, finally, that detail is starting to arrive, thanks to the new Massive X Lab blog series on Native Instruments’ website.
