#Musicproduction: HEDD releases free Lineariser plug-in - addresses monitor phase and harnesses host CPU power for phase-aligned audio #freedownload

With the HEDD Lineariser® plugin, we have created a unique solution for one of the most challenging problems in the history of loudspeaker designing: Linear Phase Response. What does it mean and why will your HEDD studio monitors sound better than ever?
Well, all loudspeakers regardless of size or construction cause phase errors. This means that not all frequencies leave the speaker at the exact same point in time. This has to do with physics: The fundamental relation between time and frequency is expressed by the so-called Fourier Transform, which explains that corrections in the frequency domain will inevitably alter the phase response – and vice versa. You can’t have both, linear frequency and phase response at the same time, at least not in an analog loudspeaker design.

When you hear tilt-shift lens or tilt-shift photography, there is a probability that an image looking like a miniature model crossed your mind.

The miniature look is interchangeably referred to as the tilt-shift effect and you can even recreate it in post-processing. These lenses though have quite a few other strengths that are worth considering.

Club Sound 008 - MP3 & Music video - Released

I wanted to try a reverse reverb effect on the vocals. But my reverse reverb has more. I also do a pitch shift.

When your heart says it hurts
Time will tell you it will pass
But memories will bring it back again
And that will hurt again - more or less
Now I'm coming to an end, my friend
And I hope you understand, my friend
Hard times will open wonderful doors
And it's all yours!

#Photoshop: How to Create a Magical Butterfly Photo Manipulation

In this tutorial I'll show you how to use photo manipulation techniques in Adobe Photoshop to create a fantasy scene featuring a magic butterfly.
First, we'll build the base scene using three stock images. After that, we'll add the model and retouch her using adjustment layers, masking, dodging and burning. Later we'll paint more hair and add the butterfly. We'll create some magic touches for the butterfly using brushes and blending modes. We'll add several adjustment layers and paint the background light to complete the final effect.
