This one’s a pretty cool feature which will improve your workflow and speed in a quantum way.

Imagine, you’re just creating a new track in a session and  now you have the great option to create preset tracks, means tracks that already have the right plugins, routing, instruments, etc.

Create instantly preset tracks in a session without copying them from your templates or other sessions.

Check the video and try it on your own. From Pro Tools Version 10, this trick is possible.

Today Oli is gonna show you how to create an unbelievable stereo width with almost no plugINs, means only by routing. The only gear you need is an EQ or other PlugIN, which is able to invert phases.

Today’s imaging is working completely working without classic outboard gear. The Plugins are getting better and better, nothing’s impossible anymore. There are Plugins for almost everything in radio imaging or music production. And here starts the problem. The more, your Plugin can do, the more CPU power it needs. Not everyone owns a 12-core Mac Pro, so you have to fight with latency. Latency can be a total pain, when you’re placing your audio and that freaking latency destroys your whole work. So what to do?

I’ve created a video with two easy solutions, when you’re having latency caused by Plugins. It might not be a big pro trick, but it’s still cheaper than buying a new computer 😉

Cheers and have a nice weekend.

Many stations are on the look for the most polished sound possible. BUT, some Imaging pieces need to sound dirty, rough and edgy. I created a Lollapalooza Promo for our CHR library and used a plugIN from the Sound Toy Family, I never used before and it made the VO unbelievable dirty and rough. Love that…You can emulate that kind of sound also with AMPs (like Sans Amp, AMP Farm or Guitar Rig), Hard Filters and EQs. Adding Flanging, LoFI or  SciFi to it makes it even more edgy.

As bonus, here’s the pic of my Decapitator Settings:

I know many of our readers are experienced in working with Pro Tools, but some guys like Mike Santos (Our Multi-Imaging Rockstar) always preferred audition and just made the switch to Pro Tools and are really new to it. When you’re working for years with another DAW, it’s hard to start with Pro Tools.

My buddy Ryan, our Country Imaging Director and nominee for the first “Radio summit industry award” takes care of the Pro Tools beginners and made a short and easy tutorial. This time, he shows you how to save and load plugIn presets. Never lose time by setting up your plugIns for every session, just save it as preset and it’s available everytime in seconds

What the hell is this guy doing and why is this posted on a radio imaging blog?

This is beatjuggling and is one of the king disciplines of turntablism. It’s the manipulation of two or more samples, loops, songs, etc… to create a new and unique composition using two or more turntables and one or more mixers. In short: It’s creating new beats by playing around with sounds you’ve already got.

So why am I posting this?

With my musical background as DJ, I’ ve always been impressed of this form of ‘Live Remixing’ and I wanted to bring this technique into Pro Tools.

So, today I’m gonna show you some beatjuggling made in Pro Tools, totally without turntables. A great technique, especially for Urban Imaging.

And by the way… it’s way easier to learn beatjuggling in Pro Tools than with real turntables and vinyl (believe me, it’s a freaking pain…)
