Gullfoss review in practical tests

Loudness War channel is back! This time I made a walkthrough for a Gullfoss automatic EQ against a number of common sound types.

More will be coming. With decent recording setup and state of art video editing software – DaVinci Resolve Free – I can quite easily create a plenty of videos in resonable time.

Black Friday loot

With new job and new tracks signed I felt like burning some more money this year. So here comes the new software:

Chromaphone 2

chromaphone-2-edit

This unique synth simulates the behavior of physical object oscillating, which creates realistic sounds of strings, drums, bells as well as some oddball contraptions. While modulation options are somehwat limited, it works great under any settings. Awesome plucks and tube bass out of the box – just can’t go wrong with Chromaphone. While I don’t need Chromaphone for any particular purpose, it’s great plugin for organic sounds of all kind.

AAS also made some plugins for Ableton Live, especially Corpus which I use every now and then. You will be able to hear some great Corpus bass working as a main motiff for my upcoming “Meteor Ride” track.

Got this thing from JRR shop for 75 USD, normal price is 200 USD.

Now that’s a big deal – automagical orchestral music composer based on artificial intelligence. It’s like having a classical-trained musican next to me: “Just write me a string section in G minor.” – snap. “Nah, another one” – snap. “Or maybe in C minor. Or faster and higher, but solo” – everything in split second. “Now, add flute accompaniament to it” – snap.

However, things get really interesting when I route this thing into state-of-art synths, utilizing complex sound design and perfect mixdown. By now I can make all the things just sound good.

On curiosity

Inspiration can come from unexpected sources. As a software developer and AI enthusiast, I recently stubled upon a great material about self-learning AI based on curiosity.

Now, the way this scientific project works is very similiar to the way humans learn new things, in particular inĀ music production area. Sounds obvious once you realize it, but often stating the obvious can be the greatest breakthrough.
