mixing magic

Music production can be a subject riddled with vague descriptors – from terms like ‘muddiness’, ‘fizz’ or ‘bloat’ to the elusively obtuse but much sought-after qualities of ‘warmth’ and ‘mix glue’. It’s these latter two we’re tackling in this issue’s cover feature. We’re on the hunt for that sonic magic imparted by vintage desks and outboard in order to help the disparate elements of our tracks sit together. It turns out it’s more than simply a case of slapping an emulated effect onto all your busses – if you want to really ‘glue’ your mixes, an understanding of reverb, send effects, saturation and more will help you along. Head for page 28 to learn more. We hope you enjoy this issue of FM!…

after 40 years, moog are back with a $5,000 reboot of the 16 channel vocoder

Vocoders aren’t hard to come by in modern studios. Many synths these days come with vocoders built in, and, of course, there are countless plugins out there that’ll do the job too. But if you want the ultimate in vocoder luxury, and a price tag to match, Moog may have the answer. After 40 years, the company is resuming production of the classic Moog 16 Channel Vocoder. Introduced in 1978 – and as heard on Giorgio Moroder’s E=MC2 – this enabled musicians to create not only the famous vocoded vocal effect, but also to process synths and other instruments. The new version is cut from the same cloth; in fact, it’s based on the original schematic and features hand-soldered analogue voice circuits to ensure the sound is as authentic as possible. There…

deckard’s dream mk2 is like a cs-80 synth for your desktop

Promising to provide everything that was good about the original rack model, Black Corporation’s Deckard’s Dream Mk2 is an updated version of the Yamaha CS-80-inspired synth that’s designed to sit on your desktop. Said to come in a “thin and light tabletop format,” this new revision ships with both wooden end panels and rack ears, also offering additional control over the sustain modes and timing. Otherwise, things look pretty similar to its predecessor: you get eight voices, each with two identical parts comprising an analogue voltage-controller oscillator, low-pass and high-pass filters, noise generator, filter envelope and VCA plus ADSR envelope. There’s also a performance section that gives you additional global controls, plus support for MPE-based control of certain features. There’s full MIDI control and the option to store 128 presets in each…

klevgrand krets is a free modular environment

> Klevgrand are known for knocking out audio effects at a pretty swift rate, and now they are giving you the chance to create your own by releasing a free modular environment known as Krets. Before you get too excited, we should point out that it is at the early alpha stage of development, so is far from the finished article. Apparently, Krets was originally designed to be used internally by Klevgrand for prototyping plugins and testing DSP ideas, but they have now decided to release it to the wider world with the aim of turning it into an official product. Krets deals in low-level audio DSP processing, which means that there aren’t really any ready-made effects. The modules you can use are mathematical expressions and functions, which can be combined…
