What is surprising is that it isn’t all about early reflections The reverb engine itself provides a complementary set of reflections but the trick is to turn reverb time to a minimum. But there is a lot more in Michael’s comprehensive tutorial, so do check it out

With the announcement of RX7 and several developers bringing out denoiser plug-ins, are we starting to fix too much in the mix? Are these plug-ins taking the importance out of proper capture and performance? Now that they’re teasing that we can change intonation, do we run the risk of artists becoming untrusting of sound engineers?

Find Of The Week
Mike - iZotope RX7 is on the way. They have announced that soon we will be able to reshape the intonation of a dialogue performance, rebalance musical elements in a mix, isolate or remove vocals from a song—and all in multi-channel audio up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2.
Alan - Secondhand RME Babyface bought on eBay, to bring RME reliability and sound quality to my mobile rig. A huge difference in the depth of the sound, far richer than the MOTU it replaces and far far more reliable.
Julian - Fuzzmeasure audio measurement and analysis software
