can't go wrong with a tele and a titties tube amp. crank the shit up and see what you come up with. there's just something inherently more ballsy about writing a song with kick-ass tone. it just inspires.

Yeah Michael, it's the newest version of the Waves L1 and L2 plugins.
It's been a year now since I've finished a song. The one on the Something Must Break compilation. And that was just screwing around. So I guess I need to screw around more without caring. Whenever I think about what I'm doing, it REALLY sucks. But actually, my biggest problem is that I can't decide which musical direction to go in. I experimented with complex/layered stuff with weird electronic sounds and crap. Then I tried going the minimal route, which I'm no good at...at all apparently. Now I'm thinking of other stuff to try.

Alex, why don't you record anything anymore? What the fuck is going on here?

This is fast becoming my favorite S&M site on the web.

is that a Waves plug? i do most my stuff on PoCo... i love the MasterX3... TC ported the MD3 from their mad-crazy System6000, but just the plug is like a grand.
alex, if you dont record anymore sell me some of your songs and i'll record 'em instead! you turd! it's just a dry spell.. i've heard enough of your stuff. you're good. don't get down. get loud. run your sound thru ten Limiters each with full gain... maybe that sound will spark some creativity.

I've always heard it's one of the best for those types of plug-ins. Anyone used the L3 yet? Although, I don't really care because I don't even record anything any more.

naw, its pretty nice, man. i used it on my vocal and guitar tracks on the last new song i released. but i kinda think of it more like some sort of Semi-Colory Variable Normalizer... if that makes sense. it works more to bring low signals up to the rest, but somehow still makes the original louder signals and transients still seem to appear proportionally louder than the quiet parts it has brought up.
of course, it all depends on how much you push it. it is great when used subtley. it adds a bit of coloration, but not so much in a squashy way, but more of a tubey kinda crunch, which you hear mostly on the transients. i dunno, i like the thing. and like i said, as with any Dynamics tool, it can obviously be abused. and i'm sure this one may be the culprit in many TOO-LOUD releases as of recent. but this plug definately does not have that push-and-pull squishy squash heavy breathing that a fully cranked limiter can. no, i am not sure exactly how it works, but it's software, man... :)
i'd say D/L the demo and give it a spin. it's pricey, though.

just wondering if yall have any experience with the sony oxford inflator plugin for tc powercore/protools? it is like a loudness maximizer but isn't as it gives more apparent loudness but doesn't compress the signal... huhhhh i am confused.. check the link
