Fiver Friday Header II

So, the iron Imager announcement is out, the competition will be held as part of the WWRS from April 13 -15  – I am looking so forward to this epic battle.

The week was just great and here is what i was poundering!

 1. Plugin

Jeff Schmidt posted a quick video tip on facebook this week, how he processed the VO in his demo for Torch FX. Its kind of a parallel compression. He uses two tracks: one for the original VO including RChannel, plus an additional track on which he cranks up the settings. For this he uses Q10, 7-Band EQ and L1 with complete crazy settings.

But watch yourself:

VIDEO QUICK TIP – Distorted Parallel VO ProcessingAlien Nation member Haris Filipovic reached out wanting to know how to achieve the VO sound from the Torch FX Demo. Its a bit tough to explain in writing – but pretty easy with video. Lemme know what ya think.

2. Inspiration

I always look out to learn from the best and I admired Richard Branson and his entrepreneurship since I was a teenager.

Communication is a very important factor in our life. Communication is not only about the meaning, it’s also about the way you say it.

I heard somebody describe somebody else as “grumpy” recently. “I’m not grumpy,” they replied. “I’m overwhelmed!”

Read Richard’s thought about this.


3. Music

Thats my favorite playlist right NOW! the music I grew up with!


4. Web/Social/whatever
