Waves Grand Rhapsody Piano Demo

Hey kids. Here' s a short demo featuring our new Waves Grand Rhapsody Piano VI. This sampled piano is the same one used on Adele's hit song, "Hello". This is actually a very versatile piano in that they've sampled it using various combinations of close and room microphones. I love it.

Waves Abbey Road Plate vs UAD EMT 140 Plate!

Heres' a quick demo comparing the Waves Abbey Road Plate and the Universal Audio EMT 140 Plate reverb plugins. I'm sending audio to both plugins simulaniously from a Rhodes piano and a Snare Drum. I'm then muting and unmuting the output of each reverb every few measures. I tried to match each verb's sound as best I could, but didn't get too picky. I realize they're not "identical" sounding, but, they're fairly close;-) As always, demo this stuff for yourself and see what you think!

VIs used in this video include:
Velvet (electric piano),
Steven Slate Drums SSD4 using the stock "Liverpool Tight"kit

Other Waves plugins include:
CLA Mix, SSL G Channel, Slate Tape and Isotope 7 Maximizer

Logic 10.3.2 MIDI Plugin Freeze Bug Workaround!

Have you discovered the dreaded Logic 10.3.2 muted audio after you try to freeze a MIDI Channel strip bug? I hadn't until recently as I rarely have to freeze my MIDI tracks. I was trying to freeze a Waves Grand Rhapsody piano one day and couldn't do it as after each attempt I didn't hear anything. It wasn't until I discovered that the MIDI Plugin I had inserted was the culprit. Here's a workaround until Apple fixes the problem. Incidentally, possibly the more obvious workaround is to just bounce in place the MIDI channel strip and then disable the instrument.

Got Talkbox? Make one using Native Instruments Guitar Rig!

A few years ago I did some experimenting with Native Instruments Guitar Rig and automating some formant filters. This FX gave me a sort of old school Talk Box sound.

Click here to download the NI Guitar Rig preset and enjoy the video below for an in-depth tutorial on how to get this up and running using Logic.
