  • Dan Cooper On Mixing Piano - My Plug-in Chain
    Last week I shared my techniques for recording an upright acoustic piano.  This week I am following it up and share the plug-in chain I use for mixing real pianos. Mixing a real piano is much more challenging than mixing a virtual instrument of a piano as VI's are generally developed to sound big and balanced straight out of the box. Real pianos need some gentle mixing so that they can sit well and also still sound natural in a context of a mix.

  • Blackmagic Announce DaVinci Resolve 14 With Fairlight Audio - Should Avid Be Concerned?
    It was inevitable once Blackmagic Design acquired Fairlight that integration of Fairlight audio into their already popular video editing suite was simply a matter of time.However, the announcement of Resolve 14 With Fairlight Audio has sent many of the video editing blogs chattering with the usual claims of Final Cut killer or Premiere killer, but in our experience, there's rarely a product that kills another. In fact what we find in modern software development is iterations of features across the market. In other words, one product adds a feature and then the competitor copies it with improvements, a kind of software development game of poker... which should be good for all of us.
