10 Must Try Software Plug-ins for producers

10. Despite having been around for quite some time, PSPaudioware’s VintageWarmer has rightfully earned its place among the plug-in elite. Acting as a single or multi-band limiter, compressor, and analog-modeled saturator, VintageWarmer is a quick and easy solution to fatten up individual tracks, groups, or even your entire mix. The latest installer includes three slightly different versions of the plug-in: PSP MicroWarmer, PSP VintageWarmer (LE), and the newer PSPVintageWarmer2, which includes a double-sampling mode generally recommended for mastering purposes.

9. No plug-in list would be complete without an equalizer, and for us, FabFilter’s Pro-Q is the ultimate weapon of choice. It doesn’t have any groundbreakingly unique features, but the elegant user interface, tasteful color contrasts, and smooth sound are more than enough to make Pro-Q stand out on its own. Throw in up to 24 bands of control and you’ve got pretty much everything you could ask for in a modern digital equalizer.

Peace out M.C.R.

My Chemical Romance have split up.
After a dozen years and four popular studio albums, the platinum-record band announcedvia a brief post on their website “it has come time for it to end.”
Here’s the full message:
Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure. My Chemical Romance

I have to be honest when I say that despite any successes I may have, I feel like I fail constantly. The music business can be brutal at times. Everything you create is scrutinized on every level by everyone. I don't know how many times I've tried and failed. How many times I've been rejected by important people in the business. It's not an easy thing to swallow. Not for me anyway. However I keep at it. Too dumb to quit I guess. I try unsuccessful things everyday. I have so many garbage tracks I would never want anyone to hear that its comical. However, for me its a numbers game. I know that if I keep making music, some of them will be good, great even... I keep at it. All the greats have failed and they've failed a lot. I'm not saying I'm great, far from it. But if I don't quit and keep at it, someday I could be.
