We intuitively understand these ideas but for a practitioner, the devil is in the detail, and if I'm honest I didn't understand them early on in my development. Now I see it as crossing a threshold into competence.Like when a martial artist achieves a black belt. It means they have all the moves, but that's really just the start.
As some of you may know, I'm a commercial TV and Film writer so most of the time I'm writing to a brief. The last few years have been very productive, but I'm hoping that very soon I'll be able to carve out enough time to do some personal tracks - perhaps even a whole album...

Analog modeling keeps getting better and better. It's not just one or two plug-ins anymore that do a really good job of modeling analog compression. We now have many different options to choose from. This also applies to modeled analog EQ's, delays, reverbs, and FX. We also have preamp modeled plug-ins that pair nicely with all of the modern ultra clean interfaces. We have several options of modeled console summing, and many console channel strip plug-ins. Let's not forget the tape machine plug-ins. You can even wow and flutter sources in your DAW if so desired.
