This one from Flux is free although it doesn't exactly do the rotate like Waves. I haven't used this one but Wave Arts Panarama looks intriguing. It is also, of course, easy to change the stereo imaging of a sound by adjusting the L and the R levels individually or applying delay or reverb asymmetrically. If you are mixing in 5.1 it is easy to rotate using ...

You can use an Audio to MIDI plugin to generate notes and some MIDI expressions. You can record this as a MIDI file or route its output within your host audio editor to a synthesizer plugin in it. You can start with checking this Audio-to-MIDI plugins: WIDI Midifier (There are audio examples at the end of the page) Since these are plugins and you need ...

Hello, There are a number of ways of doing this Sound Hack has a variable cross convolution process and is great ( as is FScape ). Spectrumworx Audiosculpt SPEAR Composers Desktop Project can all do this kind of thing. Alchemy and metasynth as mentioned are also very good . I was recently at a kyma Conference and got to meet a fantastic chap called Pete ...

Spanner is a new AAX plugin from maggot which does the kind of thing you are asking. www.maagot.co.nz/software/spanner.shtml

Grm tools v3 work as Rtas, Vst and AU: they just work in Logic! BTW, just updated to v3.2 They're quite unique, but there are other interesting plugins to try: have a look at Michael Norris' SoundMagic Spectral suite http://www.michaelnorris.info/software/soundmagic-spectral.html Best Davide

I don't think there is a gizmo to fix this besides: proper use of cedar, izotope or an eq/hipass filter combined with good old pencil in Pro tools. The point is that the energy from the plosive makes the capsule 'tremble', creating a distortion in lower mid band of the p. So it's not easy to fix.. The only real gizmo to fix this is.... precaution/a good ...

If you have ProTools (and understandably a hardware unit to plug into), why not just feed in the RCAs, create a 96k/24bit session, create an Aux and an Audio Track, bus them so that they feed from the Aux to the Audio Track, record to the track (using the Aux beforehand to set your input level). Do any RTAS EQ or limiting afterward, then bounce to 320kbps ...

There simply isn't a single stand-alone sampler that has enough real-time and modulation flexibility, so most people use modular patcher programs (Reaktor, Max/MSP etc.) for that kind of stuff and more. I would recommend either Usine or Bidule, because they are the easiest ones to use and can be used as VSTs in addition to running as stand-alone ...

Shot in the dark, are you using D-Verb? I've ran into this many times and eventually just stopped using the plug because of it. It's a known bug that sadly seems to have been around a long time. I'm pretty sure it's switching either the algorithm or the size that screws things up. Find another reverb you love and don't look back IMO. http://duc.avid.com/...

Ok, the trick was to find the ID in reverse, as explained here: https://www.soundonsound.com/sound-advice/resolving-vst-plug-conflicts So if you want to duplicate your AU/VST (I only tested VST, but AU should work the same I suppose), follow this: -find the ID of your plug-in, I used MuLab (load the plugin, right click and "Show info"). Also get the name ...

Antares Kantos did this. However, it was released around 2002, and appears to be no longer available from Antares, so I'm not sure it is possible to obtain a legitimate copy these days. A brief search suggests that there are sites which claim that it is freeware now, and possibly offer it for download, but I cannot vouch for those sites. The general, brief ...

Most likely it is just your audio output device that is inducing lag. On playback, you wouldn't notice the lag as everything would have the same lag. People are far more sensitive to latency when they are expecting something in reaction to their action than when they are simply hearing something.

Tracking is the easiest and normal Way if you have different FX for one Instrument. Another way is to add both fx settings after each other and then Automate wet/dry. Good Day

Quantum Leap Silk has multi-sampled ethnic instruments original from India like Dilruba, Sarod, Tanpura and Bansuri along other great virtual instruments. The next best virtual instrument library for east west for ethnics would be Ra. From having used both and a couple of other kontakt instruments - I can say that there's a good chance to get the sound you'...

If you are referring to Phantom Power (+48V) yes you could drive two off a single jack but you should NOT be connecting two microphones to a single input. This will cause problems when you go to record. Inputs (on recorders) are generally designed to see a single device, if you want to use 2 mics you will need two inputs. If you post an edit of what it is ...

Hi Leon, There was an old bug between RX 2 and Premiere Pro that prevented RX from showing up in the plug-in list. This has been fixed on iZotope's side in the latest version of RX 2 and on Adobe's side by the latest versions of Premiere (though I'm not 100% sure if the update is in Premiere Pro CS5 or CS5.5). Please make sure you're running the latest ...

I would go for Native Instrument Vokator, I never found anything better for processing voice. Such a shame this piece of software was abandoned.

My absolute, all-time, mega-mega favourite thing to do to voices is to run them through Waves' UltraPitch 6-Voices plug. Pitching waaaay down or waaaaay up and then playing with the formant regions is probably the most fun thing in the entire wide world. It doesn't do spectral stuff, but if you layer the messed up stuff in under the "Clean" stuff you'd be ...

Hey Coca, That chain sounds pretty typical for me as well, although I often use the high band of the C4 instead of a dedicated de-esser. Depending on the project, I often create a separate set of editing tracks every time the scene/location changes. Supposing that I'm working on REEL 2 SCENE 3, a set of tracks looks like this: 2.3 Dialog A 2.3 Dialog B 2....

That sounds similar to what I use, although I don't use an of the RTAS noise suppressors (except for the C4, which I have saved a noise suppression template for which I like to use). To my ears the WNS sounded nearly identical to the C4 but with a whole lot less parameters to control. I always run Q10s an Trims on each DX track, but all other processing is ...

I did this a couple of years ago and published the results at last years International Computer Music Conference (http://eprints.bournemouth.ac.uk/18249/1/ICMC2011%2DPaper_Final_Camera_Ready_ver2.pdf). It is fairly tricky to do and I could not find any example code. I found the hardest aspect was managing the UI.

Spend some more time reading the documentation. Discuss in the Apple Developer forums. Forget your project and use something that's already been made: http://www.plogue.com/products/bidule/

Maybe try out some vocoder plugs? I've heard Alchemy can go some cool sample morphing type stuff too. Maybe even give a demo of Metasynth a whirl!

FScape is a great standalone, non-realtime audio mangler. I'm not too familiar with Kyma, but I think the convolution operation would be able to do what you suggest.

I loved pluggo's Degrader (cycling 74).. so crunchy.. Alas they've thrown it on the scrap-heap, and it only sort of works with PT now as it's not been supported from v.7 I think. Depending on which version of Tools you're running it might work, but you'll have to be creative finding a copy because I don't think it's for sale. Worth it if you can get it ...

@ Justin: looks good...awesome!
