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.

VocalSynth by Izotope, plugin of the month!

We just can’t help ourselves (which is good for you) and have purchased a few more plugins. Yes, you can never have enough plugins as my grandmother always said… or was it money? At any rate, this is what we’ve added to our arsenal this month!

Waves Mix Centric

We love our Waves plugins and have been using them for what seems like 20 years now. They’re always innovating and coming up with cool unique plugins as well as some great emulations of classic hardware. The first one we bought this month is kind of it’s own thing. It’s called the “Greg Wells Mix Centric” plugin. Although very simple to use this sucker does some complex stuff under the hood. You put it on your master bus and then just turn the knob and listen to the magic! To our ears it’s adding some compression and eq changes which can be pretty subtle or extreme depending on how far you turn the knob. We like it and have used on several new mixes this month.






Waves API 560



Waves API-560
Up next is the Waves API 560. This is an emulation of a classic API hardware graphic EQ. Although pretty simple to wrap your head around this is still a very versatile EQ and has a pleasing punch. We likey.











Izotope VocalSynth!!!


VocalSynth allows you to turn any kind of a vocal, spoken word, sung, barked by a dog, etc, into something melodic or crazy evil sounding. It’s nuts and very fun to use. Check out the video for a short example of how I sang a simple straight vocal line and then turned it into something else. I went for more of a retro sound but that barely scratchers the surface in terms of what this plugin can do.
