MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi reviews Native Instruments Absynth 4 in The Technofile

Absynth is one of the best sound design tools out there. Like its brethren, ‘Battery’ (reviewed below) and ‘FM8’ (review coming soon), it has recently had a makeover.

If you’re not already familiar with this soft synth, then check out my Absynth 3 review. If, on the other hand, you already know the score, read on. Continue reading »

MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi reviews Native Instruments Battery 3 in The Technofile

If you’re not familiar with Battery, it’s a dedicated drum sampler by Native Instruments, which makes editing samples and creating kits easier than making jokes about bad drummers. Continue reading »

Cakewalk Rapture reviewed in the Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiRapture is the third in Cakewalk’s trilogy of soft synths (as opposed to their soft synth, trilogy) and builds on its forerunners Zeta and Dimension Pro, by combining the superior sounds of the former, with the superior programmability of the latter. Intended primarily for electronic musicians, it ships with over 500 presets aimed squarely at the dance floor…the ambient…and everything in between.

Unfortunately the copy I was sent was missing its manual. Fortunately though it has a well designed, easy to use  interface that’s very similar to the big Z and DP, so I felt immediately at home. Continue reading »

MC rebbe the Rapping Rabbi reviews Arturia Analog Factory in The TechnofileA few years ago, French company, Arturia, set about emulating the classic Moog modular synthesizer in software. Their resultant ‘Moog Modular V’ sounded so authentic that it earned the endorsement of  no less a luminary than the late great Dr. Bob Moog himself.

Since then, they have released several more highly acclaimed soft emulations of classic synths including Yamaha’s CS-80, Moog’s Minimoog, ARP’s 2600 and Sequential Circuits’ Prophet 5 & Prophet VS…my review copies of which seem to have got lost somewhere over the English Channel…but never mind, as their latest release ‘Analog Factory’, which arrived recently at Technofile HQ, offers 2000 of the best presets from all of these, in one mega package.

If so, then what you might be missing is mastering. Continue reading »

Cakewalk Dimension Pro reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiBrought to you by the same team who were responsible for the seriously excellent Z3TA, Dimension Pro started life as part of Cakewalk’s music creation tool ‘Project 5’ and quickly proved to be so popular, that they decided to spin it off as a self contained cross platform plug in.

At the time, this was major audio news, because it was the first time in their history that Cakewalk had released a piece of software compatible with anything other than a PC, so it prompted speculation about the possibility of Mac versions of their other products… Continue reading »

MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi reviews Celemony Melodyne Uno in The TechnofileOne of the great thing about making MIDI based music is that once you’ve finished recording, you can use your sequencer to edit the results to perfection. If only editing audio were as simple…

I’ve got news for you…it is! In fact, thanks to an excellent user interface, it’s actually simpler to edit audio with Melodyne Uno, than it is to edit MIDI with any of the major sequencing packages! Continue reading »
