On 11 July 2019 I will be the keynote speaker of De Podcastshow which will be held at Pakhuis De Zwijger, Amsterdam. I will focus in particular on the changes that the podcast has caused in our media landscape.
The Multiband Dynamics device in Live is a great tool for de-essing a signal. So I made a super simple to use De-esser in Ableton Live 10 and which can be downloaded for free.
Since February 2017, every Friday evening at 8 o’clock, I send out the newsletter Podpraat filled with interesting news about podcasting for podcast fans and makers. This week Podpraat grew into a new Dutch service from Melodiefabriek: Podpraat – help with podcasting.
The Kuassa Amplifikation Matchlock amp simulator tries to mimic Fender amps. How good is it?
Propellerhead has released Reason Compact and Reason 10.4, offering new ways to make music.
I have lowered the prices of 80s, Rockmen, Boutique Amp and Combi Manifesto 1

When listening to my favourite tracks I notice that they all sound very different from each other. Some are sharp sounding, some sound compressed, some sound very aggressive, some sound very smooth. They are obviously not mixed and mastered by the same people, using the same equipment and the same set of ears.
The guys and girls of Propellerhead worked hard to solve the performance issues of Reason. Although the focus was on VST performance Reason 10.3 in general now runs better and smoother than ever.
A few mouse clicks and everything is gone. Facebook, Instagram and Messenger. Next up is Whatsapp. Been there, done that. Facebook is evil. Here on my own domain is where I live.
I decided to test the random LFO modes of Propellerhead Reason devices. Random LFO offers a great way to add analog irregularities to a signal, modulating a synth parameter randomly or applying it to an effect.
The free TubeDriver, a tube amplifier emulation plug-in created by Nick Crow is my favourite for some time now. It even beats expensive well known plug-ins.
