This free plugin will be added to your account automatically when you join Plugin Alliance. If you already have an account you can download and start using this plugin today.
Polishing your mix’s low end can be tricky. Bass DI tracks can sound mushy, and kick tracks can lose their “pop.” Sometimes everything below 100Hz can become such an undifferentiated soup of noise that you just don’t know where to start! Start here: The bx_subfilter is just the ticket for adding clarity and definition to tracks that have troublesome low frequencies. There are lots of expensive and complicated EQ plugins out there, but when it comes to shaping your low end, the bx_subfilter is unique for its ease and simplicity. With just a few quick adjustments to its four-knob interface, you can breathe new life into those 808s that have been muddying your mix.

Let’s face it, our time is invaluable. It is the one commodity that we all have a huge shortage of. There are a million things you could probably be doing if you’re not shooting—or maybe reading this. Certainly, the last thing you want to do is fritter away your precious idle time on some wild goose (or light) chase.
That’s when your conscious mind starts to ask your subconscious inner mind a whole lot of nasty questions. How are the clouds looking? How’s the light? What’s the forecast?
As it turns out, in most cases these questions aren’t about preparation. They’re just your brain trying to talk you out of shooting.

Music Video "No Evening Without You" Published - Story is witchcraft

In this music video I visit a witch to get healed from love. Thanks to the enchanted Christiane for playing in my video. The song "No Evening Without You" is from the album "Boheme".

These 3/4 makes it uneven and finally I found out that it expresses a little despair. And that fits well. Mention that there is a variation in the last verse.
