Review: Softube TSAR-1/1R

The reverb market either seems to be an afterthought for plugin developers or an exercise in control gluttony.

There is a small majority of plugins that balance both functionality and power, but Softube saw an opportunity to topple the existing regime with a powerful reverb that also encourages easy interaction.   TSAR-1 stands for TRUE STEREO ALGORITHMIC REVERBRead More

Review: FabFilter Pro-C 2

We need no introduction for FabFilter. We all know the pros use it. We even have reviews already published for Pro-MB (here) and Pro-Q 2 (here).

Producer’s Choice: 6 god Bundle

Let’s face it. All HipHop producers want the OVO sound. Although most of it has birthed from Kanye West’s 808s album, the sound is synonymous with Drake, 40, Boi 1nda, and T-Minus.

I have cooked up something special here for fans of the OVO Sound. “If you want to make beats in the style of Drake, The Weeknd, Noah “40” Shebib or Boi1da – then this sample packRead More
