Bad luck if you come home at midnight and you have forgotten the key. In former times you would have sung a song under the balcony. Today you would have to run because of thrown shoes and bottles.

#Musicproduction: MusiKernel Team releases MusiKernel 15.07 for Linux and Windows (#free download)

MusiKernel is a suite of DAWs and instrument/effect plugins, and complete open source framework for developing any type of audio application. Common functionality such as hardware support, multithreading and plugin hosting is centralized and shared by all hosts. In MusiKernel, a DAW/host is simply a type of plugin, just like instruments and effects.

By sharing a single implementation of plugin hosting between all hosts, the MusiKernel ecosystem can avoid the all-too-common situation of some plugins not working in some hosts. Furthermore, all hosts and all instrument/effect plugins are compiled into a single binary, which provides superior CPU performance while providing the entire audio ecosystem in a single package instead of having to sit through numerous install dialogs to get all of your plugins installed.

Noble heroes - Edle Helden

Today there are no more noble heroes such as John Wayne. He shoots hundred Indians and twenty bandits. Then he goes into a saloon and takes off his hat, because ladies are present. Then he rides off into the sunset to shoot more people. Nowadays he would ride against tobacco companies. By the way we learnt smoking from Indians.

Heute gibt es keine edlen Helden mehr. Solche wie John Wayne. Der erschießt hundert Indianer und zwanzig Banditen. Danach geht er in den Saloon und nimmt den Hut ab, weil Damen anwesend sind. Danach reitet er in den Sonnenuntergang um weitere Leute zu erschießen. Heutzutage würde er gegen Tabakkonzerne reiten. Rauchen haben wir übrigens von den Indianern gelernt.

#Photography: Light and Shadow: Two Powerful Photography Tools

Quality photography relies heavily on light. The very meaning of the word “photography” underlines the importance of finding the perfect lighting balance, as it stems from two Greek words: “phos” (meaning light) and “graphis” (which translates into drawing). But despite the fact that most photographers would argue endlessly over the fact that lighting is everything, there is exquisite creative potential in the lack of this highly praised element.

#Photoshop: What are the secrets behind manga art?

Manga is the name of a kind of comic created in Japan, so as you might have guessed, it has a very cartoon-ish look. There is a lot of variety among styles; there are many that stay relatively true to life, some stylise certain aspects, it’s also common to see a strong character twice the size of any normal person, or features that are physically impossible. The cartoonish style gives freedom to play with proportions, so it’s good to know some key features, such as block colours, big bright eyes, small noses and mouths, to help your work stay recognisable among fans.

#Musicproduction: TASCAM releases "Hi-Res Editor" - #Free Stereo Editing Software Includes Native Direct Stream Digital Support

TASCAM has announced that Hi-Res Editor has been released, a free application that supports up to 11.2MHz DSD files or 384k WAV. The software allows playback and export of DSD files without intermediate conversion to PCM audio. It is available now as a free download for Windows.
DSD Audio can be played natively through USB devices that support it, such as the TEAC UD-501 and HA-P90SD. In cases where a PCM interface is used, or even the computer's built-in audio, the software automatically plays DSD back through the interface at any available sample rate. A section of the DSD file can be exported as a new file, either in DSD or WAV format, to separate one long recording into individual tracks.
Two DSD files can also be combined into a new file, for example when a file over 2GB is divided. DSD audio can be converted to PCM, and vice-versa, for burning to CD or online distribution. In addition to the above, Hi-Res Editor can edit the gain level for WAV format audio.

Charlatan is a polyphonic, subtractive virtual analog (VA) synthesizer plugin with focus on sound quality and easy usability. It comes with a flexible, yet not overwhelming feature set which encourages artists to start tweaking instead of just relying on presets. Inspite of it's simplicity, Charlatan's architecture is flexible enough to create both classic sounds and rather experimental noises. While making no compromise about sound quality, the sound engine has been highly optimized for efficient CPU usage making Charlatan well suited as a "bread and butter" synth even in projects with a large number of plugin instances.

Complete content was originally recorded for this Sound Pack and all sounds are real – we didn’t imitated animal sounds (foley sound effects).
Farm animal sounds in this sound pack are the ones you will find on most farms in middle Europe – no exotic animals like Llama sounds or crocodiles sounds.
In fact, there are peacock sounds but farmers in Europe are breeding this beautiful birds for decorative purposes. Cricket sounds, dove sounds and pigeon sounds are inevitable on almost every farm.
You can use sounds from “Farm Animal Sounds” for educative purposes, for your work, as funny ringtones – or just listen how we recorded it.
