Recently nominated for a SAMA award, Eric M's debut album is up for review. Has the pop/trance genre overstayed its welcome?
Well fellow music makers, I’m here to tell you that as an old (ish) and experienced user of audio producing software, nothing quite prepared me for what VirSyn (the company) TERA (the VST compatible product) has to offer. As an opening opinion, I can quite comfortably say this is the best sounding softsynth I have ever heard.
I have to say I'm slightly disappointed to be completely honest. Don't get me wrong, Reason is still a top class piece of software but I think the majority of "improvements" in version 2 are nothing special
Orion Platinum, the new release from Synapse Audio is the most powerful edition for the true enthusiast. Every part of the program has been enhanced with new and exclusive features. Chris Pefanis puts it through the paces.
'From Me to You' offers the sunnier side of jazz - the catchy and boisterous beats of African, or more specifically South African jazz.
Essential info, what they do and fully featured free software to use.
Jeff gets dirty with the FM7 synth from Native Instruments to see what all the fuss is about. The DX 7 is to FM synthesis what the TB303 is to acid bass lines, pretty much the industry standard.
