Rocksmith Review by Music Recording Software on Blogspot

When it was issued Rocksmith was the only game I played for months. In fact I suppose it engaged many guitar players amateurs and professionals alike. Rocksmith is a special game for guitarists. You do not need mouse or keyboard or any other controller to play the game, all you need is your guitar so that you plug it in into your PC and you are ready to go. Innovative game design makes playing guitar visually intuitive.
The game includes more than 50 musicians/bands. The catalog of songs is large and diverse enough to suit musical taste of any guitarist. Among the musicians/bands are: David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Franz Ferdinand, Incubus, Kings of Leon, Lenny Kravitz, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Muse, Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, The Animals, The Cure, The Dead Weather, The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes and many more.
Rocksmith helps you to develop. The game adapts to suit your present level of guitar playing and makes relevant suggestions based on your particular skill-set. Within the game you can purchase your progress line and reach the level when you are ready for stage.

You may start with playing simply several notes or playing whole tracks yourself. Rocksmith gives you challenges of playing the real lead guitar parts of the legendary tracks on a real guitar.
If you prefer rhythm guitar, Rocksmith has plenty of tracks that range from simple to complex chord structures. So that you can progress and develop your skills.

Each and every copy of Rocksmith comes with ¼ inch to USB cable that is designed to turn guitar’s analog signal into digital so that you PC gets what you pay.  So when you receive your Rocksmith package all that remains is take your guitar and get started. You will not need anything else to get started.

I would not call Rocksmith just a game, rather it is a complex, unique and innovative learning suite. With Rocksmith learning how to play guitar becomes more amusing.

ABBEY ROAD MODERN DRUMMER REVIEW by Music Recording Software on Blogspot

ABBEY ROAD MODERN DRUMMER is one of my favourite contemporary drum virtual instrument. It comes with two world-class drum kits recorded at famous Abbey Road Studios. Abbey Road Modern Drummer is especially wonderful for creating contemporary pop and rock tracks. It comes with a brilliant Groove Library and superb effects.

You may have herd about ABBEY ROAD MODERN DRUMS. In fact MODERN DRUMMER is an upgrade – an enhanced version of MODERN DRUMS. The upgrade has been done in order to integrate developments brought by KONTKT 5. DRUMMER instruments have Groove library feature and Mixer Section from Studio Drummer.

ABBEY ROAD MODERN DRUMMER comes with two drum kits. Comparing with BFD 2, with which you can compose a dozen of drum kits, it may seem to few, however these kits deliver very different and rich contemporary drum sounds. You may choose between three snares per kit and the kits come with famous and well beloved Zildjian Spiral Trash and the Sabian Chopper. Sparkle Kit is especially useful when recording pop and ballads, while White Kit gives you more drive.

One thing I love most about ABBEY ROAD MODERN DRUMMER is that using it you can complete the production of your drum track within the instrument. It comes with a mixer section full of high-quality studio effects like reverb, saturation, studio compressor, transient master, studio EQ. When I use MODERN DRUMMER I am in no need of external effects.With this mixer and effects you can get the most realistic, rich sound for your music track.

However we may all agree that sound is not the only thing we may look for in the virtual instruments like Abbey Road Modern Drummer. For amateurs and professionals alike Groove Libraries are of great importance and I am no exception. It is extremely easy and convenient to find the right Groove for your track and then modify it rather than create the MIDI pattern fully yourself. Modern Drummer comes with a huge Groove Library. 

TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 Review by Music Recording Software on Blogspot

Native Instruments made yet another step on to integrating a hardware with software by introducing TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 - hardware capable of controlling TRAKTOR’s famous powerful REMIX DECKs with 16 stylish – differently colored pads that make you able fire one-shot samples and loops and fully control world renown TRAKTOR PRO 2.5. TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 will be released on 30th of May.

With TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 clips can be launched in an intuitive way. It is the signiture of just any Native Instruments product. They all tend to be perfectly intuitive. TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is no exception. With this hardware you will be able to control Remix Decks just like ordinary track decks and switch between 64 loops, tracks and one-shot samples on each deck.

TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 comes with pre loaded remix sets composed of 2 GB premium quality sound. So that you can get started instantly upon purchase. Alternatively you can capture sounds and loops live with KONTROL F1’s pads and faders or import other samples.  TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 will help you transform a DJ set into live performance.

It seems that Native Instruments has worked a lot with DJs to crete a product that has full sense of DJ culture. TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is much about being convenient. For DJs convenience often means having possibility to drop bass lines, drum loops, percussion, lead sounds and vocals into your performance easily right when you are on the fly. TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 together with powerful TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 can give this possibility to just any DJ.

TRKTOR KONTROL F1 also comes with four dedicated filter knobs and four volume faders. So that you may have full sonic access to the Remix Deck slots.

So I am impatiently looking forward to 30th of May when TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 will be released and I think I should purchase this hardware myself.

Cubase 6.5 - Review by Music Recording Software on Blogspot

Steinberg’s new release Cubase 6.5 had made me quite anxious until yesterday when I finally had an opportunity to check all its new features. The overall expression it left on me is that Cubase 6.5 is full of updated features. Its user-friendly interface blends wonderfully with its inspiring instruments, effects and great editing tools. So now we can go down to more detailed description:
Basically there are two new synths in Cubase 6.5: Retrologue and Padshop. Retrologue is more like a vintage analogue synth. You can get rich old-school sound. You will fall in love with Retrologue if you like funky style and come to recording funky bass and leadsounds. Retrologue comes with a library of 300 presets, so most likely you will be able to find just the right sound for your funky track in Retrologue’s preset library.
Padshop as its title hints is a wonderful source of pads. I could not manage to try out all of its presets which are 400 totally, however I still could manage to try out some of its out of this world atmosphere sound. This synth has built-in effects that are very convenient to use and that can help you create completely unique sound, completely unique pads.
Cubase 6.5 also introduces three new effects: DJ-EQ, MorphFilter and VST AMP RACK 1.5. DJ-EQ as the title tells itself is specially designed to create a favourite performance effect for DJs. The effect is quite useful for creating unexpected twists. I also tried it and made some breaks and it did well. What is more, the parameters can be automated so that you get all the dance floor atmosphere through Cubase’s quick controls which is renowned for being so user-friendly.
Unfortunately I did not have enough time to test MorphFilter’s abilities fully. However one thing is clear: Steinberg tried its best to create superior filter types of HALion 4. I think I’ll be using more of MorpFilter soon.
 I did try out and fell in love with VST AMP RACK! I got such insane tones for my guitar. The feeling of playing with signature tones of world renown guitarists from famous bands likeAccept,Meshuggah, Emperor. It’s just wonderful! The VST comes with maximizer and limiter, so that your guitar soundwill be cut through the mix.
I just can not ignore the new way of warping offered by Cubase 6.5. The hitpoints are fused and warp quantizing is directly embeded into the Quantizing Panel which is specially dedicated for this use. The result of this is that entire arrangments just like single audio loopsneed just a mouse click for quantizing – like MIDI parts. .. and yes! your audio events are warped not – sliced which means that they followautomatically any global pitch or tempo changes of your project. This makes arrangements quite easy since audio events remain uncluttered.
The new version of Cubase also comes with some unexpected surprises. The most important of these is the ability to link your Cubase to your SoundCloud account. This gives you possibility share your songs directly with the world. The uploader is built-in the Cubase 6.5.
Linking with SoundCloud is not just for easy sharing. It made possible for Cubase 6.5 to include lossless FLAC audio compression codec. You save up to 60% disk space when recording tracks in real time.
What is more, Cubase 6.5 is the first version of Cubase to offer an interface in Simplified Chinese!

BFD 2 Review - Recording Drums by Music Recording Software on Blogspot

Recently I overlooked the posts on my blog and surprisingly discovered that I have not posted about BFD 2 yet. I thought that this completely amazing music recording software really deserves a post from me.

So what is BFD 2: it is an acoustic drum production environment. Well you may have used software like EZDrummer, Addictive Drums, Native Instruments’ Abbey Road Drum Studio etc. BFD 2 does the same as the softwares I mentioned above. However it is my favourite one for its unprecedented power and flexibility, its sound quality and extreme realism. Most of the Drum Production Environment Software are user-friendly but they have much less features than BFD 2 and it is easier for a software to be user-friendly if it has less features. I use BFD 2 as an integrated plug-in with Ableton, however it may be used with any digital audio workstation like Cubase, Sonar, Nuendo etc. At our Youtube channel you may see some video tutorials and samples, so that you can see and hear what you can do with BFD 2. Below I will write in more details about its possibilities.

BFD 2 comes with 55 GB sample library recorded at famous Air Studios in London. The components of drum kits have up to 96 levels of velocity layers. BFD 2 comes with several already set-up ready to use drum kits, however you are able to set up 10, 18 or 32 piece kits using any available drum kit components.

BFD 2 comes with about 5000 stylistically different patterns. These are MIDI files that are very likely to fit your needs and provide with the groove your musical track needs. However BFD 2’s Groove Editing is just another great thing I love in this software. BFD 2 lets you make your own grooves. It’s easy, editing and creating is intuitive and you get realistic results. You can easily assign velocity to just any MIDI tone, so that at the end you can’t tell whether it is recorded live with the drummer playing real drum-kits or recorded with BFD 2.

Samples at Air Studio have been recorded using different sets of mics. So BFD 2 lets you control the recording fully just if you were recording it live. You may choose to move your virtual recording mics close to the virtual drum-kit, move away or hang them above it. If you are more professional you may go to a bit more complicated mixing process and use BFD 2’s ability to let you mix each mic channel individually. BFD 2’s built-in processors have flanger, ring mod, delay, different kinds of filters and distortion and other effects to create even more realistic drum tracks.

BFD 2’s built-in mixer has many advantages and I may dare to say that it is better than many expensive full-fledged sequencing hosts’ mixers. However Ableton, Cubase, Sonar and Nuendo are not among such music recording software.

BFD 2 offers a free trial. One wonderful thing about it is that it never ends. However several important functions can’t be used including using BFD 2 as a plug-in and Saving, Importing or Exporting anything to or from the software. But if you need to play live at home and are in need of quality drum parts, DEMO version should work. You can visit Fxpansion’s web-site and get BFD 2’s DEMO version. Here you can listen to the separate components of drum kit – samples recordedat different velocities.

Skanner Review by Music Recording Software on Blogspot (SKANNER is Free)

Native Instruments decided to make a holiday gift for musicians and released SKANNER which is a free virtual synthesizer. Stephan Schmitt is the creator of SKANNER. Those who do not already know, Stephan Schmitt is the father of REAKTOR perhaps the most well-known and powerful virtual synthesizer available. SKANNER, which is based on unique synthesis architecture, can be used with the free REAKTOR 5 PLAYER. So that it is Really Free.

I have just had my first touch with SKANNER. I’d say it is wonderful especially for its price (0). Although there is quite complicated synthesis mechanism built in the software, it is very convenient and user-friendly, so that amateur musicians can use it as well as professionals. In fact it has two interfaces: Panel A – which displays just four macro controls so that you can control the synth easily by just being in touch with those controls. It should be mentioned that each control is interlinked with multiple internal parameters, so even a subtle tweak can have great impact on the final sound you get. Panel B – is more complicated version of the interface as it is for professionals – for those who want to dig deeper into the SKANNER’s architecture. You can see this interface in details on the picture. You can even use your own samples and get them Skanned. 

 In fact SKANNER is a wonderful mix of a synthesizer and a sampler. It comes with two oscillators which are used to scan (or SKAN) a sample. At higher frequencies you get oscillators being shaped by the sample waveform as the dominant force while at low frequencies you get scratch sound produced from the sample being read back and forth. What you get are the sounds dirty and raw and highly unpredictable. 

Versatile Preset Morpher is another thing in the creative arsenal of SKANNER. You can get unique and unusual sounds by morphing between eight different snapshots. There are controls for LFO modulation and speed of morphing.
