I'm looking to expand my plugin library. For a long time, I've just been using what came bundled with Logic. I bought the Waves Gold bundle earlier this year, but am looking to add some more. Is there a plugin or plugins you find particularly indispensable to word counter your workflow? I was thinking VidMate mostly along Mobdro the lines of all purpose type stuff -- compressors, channel strips, EQs -- but I'd be interested to hear anything that springs to mind. If it helps, the material I record tends toward guitar/bass/drums rock, folk, americana stuff. I've also been dabbling in podcast/voiceover stuff lately.
Hi I have been spinning about a year at this point. I played an opener last Saturday. I ask the owner of the venue what mixer will be available since I have played for them in the past on a A&H Xone92 and did not do well on it. He said both a DJM900 NExus and Xone92. Cool. The DJM900 is something I can definitely transfer a lot of my experience on other boards to. I get there the night of and find out it's the Xone that is only there. Not also that but I can barely see the mixer because I'm playing at a venue that just opened and they haven't quite gotten all the small details worked out such as booth lighting. The sound system is Funktion ones and some funktion one monitors for the booth. I honestly had a hard time beatmatching on the Xone since I am not used to how its headphone cue works plus just having that really powerful sound system just threw me off. The 4 band EQ knobs also just really threw me off since I didn't exactly know how to mix in and out with an extra knob. And I don't really have a way to practice on setups like this. Thank god I was the opener at least. The venue manager told me after my set I had great track selection and the volumes shifted a lot but good performance.
Hi to all, yesterday I bought a JBL Go Plus under advice of the sales assistant in a local store, as he said that JBL Go Plus was "way better" than Go 2. After some research in the web I saw that JBL Go plus has the same driver as the "old" JBL Go, with a bass reflex tube, same battery life and apparently no improvements. JBL Go 2 has, aside waterproof certification (which is not relevant for me) a passive radiator for basses, and according to the reviews it sounds better than the old JBL Go (don't know about the Go plus, as it's very hard to find reviews).
The difference in price is very tiny, so it isn't a problem for me. Do you think I should return my Go plus to get a Go 2 instead? Is the sound really better? And, what really changes between Go and Go plus? Thanks in advance.
