– Yes, it’s a pretty annoying task, if you want to do it clean. Rhythmic cutting of audio files might be easy with Pro Tools’s grid, but cutting each and every bit, becomes pretty time-consuming. There is many ways of doing this, but let’s assume you cut piece by piece, as I do….(pretty old school I know:)) here is your new tool:

The guys at Soundtoys created Tremolator to emulate the tremolo effect of classic guitar amps. Run a guitar through Tremolator, choose one of the presets and hear the magic.

But you can’t just run guitars through Tremolator. Check how to create the same effect as seen above in the pic and how you can do it in Tremolator in seconds. (more…)

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:
