A nice update from the 1966 design SM58 that is a classic dynamic mic. More top end, larger magnet, just as durable and still providing that mid punch of the original.

PLUGIN/FX SPL SPL DeEsser

The $199 SPL DeEsser Collection plug-in can be properly reviewed with one, simple word. “Amazing.” If I were to end this review right now, without typing another letter on the page, the review could be considered complete. This set of powerful, specialized plug-ins is nothing short of amazing.

PLUGIN/FX ToonTrack EZkeys Essential Pianos Review – The Song Writer’s Piano Friends

EZkeys provides impressive features for piano/keyboard production situations. These fantastic-sounding samples are well-balanced and well-articulated. The dynamics levels are second-to-none, while the built-in effects are top-drawer.

IsoAcoustics has come up with a little product that might be one of the best small purchases for the studio, as it gives most speaker stands and exotica a spectacular run for their money, and literally throws (or makes you want to throw) similar foam products out of the window.

It is generally understood that many synth players typically have a personal favourite or two; one of my absolute personal favourites just so happens to be the PolyKB II. And, this synth just so happens to be an emulation, but it’s not the standard fare – not by a long shot.

The result was pretty surprising. On the PT session, I was using my plethora of plug ins.. Waves, iZotope Ozone, SSL etc., so to be honest, I thought that comparing the Mixbus mix to the PT mix with all the plugins might be a bit unfair. Boy was I wrong.
