As one of the most used effects in the audio world, reverbs come in all forms and flavors. A great reverb sounds natural and sits in the mix perfectly. At the same time, it should not confuse you with over-technical controls, but must be easy to set up and a joy to work with. Enter FabFilter Pro-R.

An equalizer is probably the tool you use most while mixing and mastering, so you need the best of the best! With FabFilter Pro-Q 3, you get the highest possible sound quality and a gorgeous, innovative interface with unrivalled ease of use.

FabFilter Pro-C 2 is a high-quality compressor plug-in for the most demanding engineers. Whether you need subtle mastering compression, an upfront lead vocal, that magic drum glue or deep EDM pumping: Pro-C 2 gets the job done with style!

An Ebony Concert Grand (extreme) and a Braunschweig Upright (Pro) by Imperfect Samples valued at approx. 375 Euros

IS logo3.jpg

Imperfect Samples specialises in imperfect sample libraries with performance sounds, recorded intelligently. Geared for the professional producer, imperfect sample libraries are useful for conveying a feeling of reality into a track. 

The human brain is sensitive to the differences between an organic recording vs. a quantized sequenced track. This is a common problem with sequenced acoustic music. Many perfect commercial sample libraries can often sound midi-like, due to their perfect performance. 

When an imperfect sample library, is sequenced, the result is a hyper-realistic organic recording. For example, listen to this sequenced demonstration: 

04FazioliConcert_GrandExtreme.jpg

The Ebony Concert Grand (Extreme) contains up to 127 velocity layers, 5 mic perspectives, imperfectly and perfectly sampled instruments, true staccato, true crotchet, picked strings, and FX, giving this library over 70,000 unique samples. Provided via super-fast download, this instrument is essentially 10 high-resolution grand pianos in one. 

Containing over 160GB of data with 24-bit audio fidelity, the raw versatility and dynamics of this piano library has to be heard to be believed.

upright_medium.jpg

The life-like Braunschweig Upright (Pro) is the largest single upright piano library in the world. The Braunschweig Upright (Pro) contains 14 velocity layers of one microphone perspective, and 11 layers of another. Totalling over 15GB of data, this upright piano library not only sounds real, it has a versatility not before seen in upright piano sample libraries.
