As always, the sample pack comes with an array of drum & melodic one-shot samples to finger-drum, play with the Live Keyboard or create your own sequences.

Metric Halo 3D Audio Interfaces - Hardware Product Of 2020 - Nathaniel Reichman's Choice

, by Metric Halo
Friday, January 1, 2021: Pro Tools Expert / Production Expert's Nathaniel Reichman picks Metric Halo 3D Audio Interfaces as the Hardware Product Of 2020! "While Metric Halo’s 3D audio interfaces, the ULN-8 and LIO-8 came out before 2020, I purchased an LIO-8 in early 2020, and it has turned out to be a great investment. I wrote about using Metric Halo interfaces as Dolby Atmos controllers over the summer. But since then, the control software for Metric Halo interfaces “MIOConsole3D” has hugely improved. It’s not well-reported in the industry, but the MIOConsole3D software now has deep EuCon monitoring support, with many of the excellent features found in the much more expensive MTRX/DADman series. It’s well worth a look if you use any of the S-series Avid controllers from Avid Control all the way up to S6." Read More...   More

Krotos in 2020

, by Krotos Audio
Krotos in 2020: A Look back at this year’s highlights As the longest year in recent history comes to an end, we wanted to take a look back at what we did at Krotos in 2020. 2020 started with a bang for us! In January, our team set off from Scotland to LA for NAMM, the world’s biggest audio trade-show. Here we announced the release of our first soft-synth, Concept! In February, we played a big part in the second Edinburgh Festival of Sound, where we hosted talks and masterclasses, and got to meet lots of great folks from all over the world too. As for everyone, everywhere, things took an unexpected turn in March, so we left our office space in central Edinburgh to continue our work remotely. (Shoutout to our office plant, Barbara. We hope you’re hanging in there.) Despite the turn of events and a little re-shuffle of a few plans, we’ve achieved a lot in 2020, so here’s a look back at what happened:... More

NEW plug-in: TiCo

, by Mathew Lane
TiCo is a flexible signal processor plug-in, featuring 7 ‘TiGHTNESS’ compression styles and 7 ‘CoNTOUR’ character styles to take any source – drums, bass, guitars, synths, vocals, (mix)busses, masters & more – to the next level with ease. TiCo is designed to get great results fast. It’s a go-to signal processor for that modern pop sound, and might quickly become your everyday all-round compressor and sound shaper. With its clear interface, it does not confuse with an abundance of options, but lets you focus on your music itself. TiCo hides a lot of power under the hood. The TiGHTNESS section takes inspiration from renowned hardware compressors, resulting in 7 unique one knob compressor styles with an analog sweet spot. It shines in keeping sounds tight and up front with moderate and musical gain reduction. The CoNTOUR section offers colour, character and EQ with its own 7 style options, for easily shaping any sound using broad analog-like strokes. To complete TiCo’s flexibility, a dry/wet mix is available for the TiGHTNESS... More
