      Add Attitude to Vocals with this Plugin

      April 25, 2018, 12:25 pm
      In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Waves, you will learn how to add attitude to your vocal tracks using the delay effects section in Waves Kramer Master Tape Plug-in. Back in 2011 when Waves released Kramer Tape I thought this was one of the best sounding tape emulations around. Waves included an additional delay section (not found on the original hardware) that over the years has become a valuable effect in my vocal plug-in chain when I work on rockabilly, country and rock music. Watch the video to hear how I use the delay section in Waves Kramer Tape to add attitude and depth to lead vocals.

      Resolve and Fusion = Match Made in Heaven

      April 24, 2018, 12:41 pm
      We were able to sit down with VFX Supervisor Adam Clark at NAB to pick his brain about the history of Fusion and its future with Blackmagic. As long-time Fusion user, Clark has seen many iterations of the node-based compositor, which was already a robust program when it was originally authored by eyeon, but says that the game has been changed now that Fusion has made its way into the hands of Blackmagic.
