Our job at Computer Music issue 311 is to help your squeaky clean 21st century in-the-box music sound like it’s made in a 20th century studio full of the most expensive equipment you’ll find-from comfort on your PC/Mac.
Not only do we explain the basics of how it all works, but we also provide you with modern marketing tools along with our recommendations for the best plugins to get the job done.
Our fellow developers really took the time to stop this issue with two free plugins for readers to know. First, the Flux Mini 2 CM is an improved version of their long -standing CM Suite multimode filter and amplitude plugin; the second, similarly, is an updated version of CM Suite stablemate Kirnu Cream that promises to “turn the world into something interesting” with a glorious concoction of arpeggios and patterns.
Plus you get a selection of free samples themed around our entire issue celebrating all things dirty.
Elsewhere this month we toured the flicks, exploring how to create the bombastic sounds that come with the latest release in theaters today. And our regular columnists have each come up with a unique way to get your lower end in shape, with Dave Gale creating a commercial best -selling technique and Ashley Thorpe continuing his explore how to get the most out of your audio interface.
