Product Reviews

MOTU The MasterWorks Collection (Mac) Review
Third-party EQ, dynamics, and reverb plug-ins are arguably the most ubiquitous and oft-used effects processors. MOTU now enters this crowded playing field with its MasterWorks Collection, three plug-ins that were previously available solely to Digital Performer users. ...

Cakewalk by Roland V-Studio 20 (Mac/Win) Review
Since Roland acquired a major stake in Cakewalk, the two companies have developed products together using Roland's hardware experience and Cakewalk's software savvy. The combination of the two has resulted in products such as the V-Studio 700, a comprehensive hardware/software recording system. ...

Keith McMillen Instruments StringPort (Mac) Review
Guitar may not be the most natural portal into the world of computer-driven music, but you've seen plenty of ways to bring it into the digital world. State-of-the-art MIDI guitar pickups can now track like a bloodhound, but they have no direct way to translate the natural variations in tone and articulation inherent in electric and acoustic guitars. ...

Synthogy Ivory II Grand Pianos (Mac/Win) Quick Pick Review
Opinions about sampled pianos vary, but Synthogy Ivory has long been my go-to virtual piano. In my August 2006 review of Version 1.5, I concluded, ''Ivory is without a doubt the finest sampled piano that I have ever played'' ...

Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Keyboard Quick Pick Review

Arturia Brass 2.0 Quick Pick Review
Like the previous version, Arturia Brass 2.0 (Mac/Win, $199; free upgrade from V. 1) models trumpet, trombone, and sax. Brass is now multitimbral, allowing you to load as many as four instrument presets simultaneously ...

Native Instruments George Duke Soul Treasures Quick Pick Review
George Duke Soul Treasures ($119, download or DVD) delivers more than 500 phrases played by George Duke, each sliced and mapped as an individual sampler instrument for Kontakt 4 and Kontakt 4 Player. When you consider that George Duke (something of a soul treasure himself) has recorded ...


D.I.Y. Musician: The Color of Merch
The logos and graphics you create (or have created for you) as a musician are used on websites, albums, T-shirts, and posters. But the formats and color requirements of these items can vary significantly. As anyone who has tried to do a run of T-shirts can tell you, you can waste a lot of time adjusting images for each type of use. Here's a short guide on colors and formats so that you can do it right from the start. ...

Remix Clinic: In the Beginning
Today's music production process is highly technical. It takes a fluent understanding of recording and sequencing techniques to get a musical idea into the computer and then ultimately mix it back out for the world to hear. Despite all of the technical processes, the most important part of any project is the overall creative idea and how successful you are at achieving it. ...
