UVI’s Attack EP88

I purchased this UVI’s new Rhodes instrument. It’s nice. I wondered how useful acoustic sounds of Rhodes are. But the idea is great. Assigning acoustic sound to different outputs with some FX plugins and mixing with the electric sounds, you can make really fantastic sound.

iPhone 6s and MVNO SIM

   I upgraded my iPhone from 6 to 6s, and changed the carrier from SB to docomo. Canceled SB and ordered DMM for my former docomo Xperia.   I didn’t know that I can use my docomo smartphone with MVNO SIM without SIM unlocking. I got a DMM’s data SIM package for my former docomo Xperia…

Checking out new plugins

   Checking out these new plug-ins, Greg Wells MixCentric and Abbey Road Reverb Plates Plugin. I had had a problem that Greg Wells MixCentric plugin didn’t appear on my StudioOne. I uninstalled all waves softwares including Waves Central and all invisible related files from my PC, then re-installed and activated. Then the problem solved. Both…

My Old iBook G3

   This is my about fifteen years old iBook with Mac OS 10.3. I found an AC adopter for this iBook in my closet, and turned on the iBook for the first time in ages. There are so many long-forgotten stuff such as Classic (for Mac OS9 compatibility), File Maker Pro, Apple Works, Now Up-to-date…

Hello! Google

I canceled the server I had rented and some cloud service subscriptions. Then I signed up for Google Apps for Work unlimited. I need a big disk in the cloud, and Google Apps for Work unlimited seems to be the best choice for me. It’s a bit expensive because I had to make five accounts…

This is a screenshot of my iPad while I’m working with Studio One. I use Waves Paz Analyzer, Waves Dorrough Meter and Meter Plugs K-Meter, inserting on the post fader slots of the master channel. I have tried many spectrum analyzer plugins but realized that Waves Paz is easy to use for me. The two…

iPad2

Although less than a year after I have bought the iPad, I purchased an iPad2 3G+WiFi 16G model the other day. Since I bought my first iPad, Wi-fi model, I have been looking for how to use it efficiently. I have a MobileMe account, so I can use my calendar, address book, notes, iDisk and…

Vienna Ensemble Pro

Recently, I use Vienna Ensemble Pro with cubase 5. My OS is windows 7-64 bit and my cubase is 32 bit version. So I can use 64 bit vst instruments through the vienna ensemble pro. It’s very good for samplers using large memories, such as Kontkt4, Superior Drummer 2 or Ivory II. Before I used…

iPad

Finally, I got an iPad! It’s very very useful for document viewing, browsing website, checking twitter, watching iTunes U, podcasting videos and YouTube Videos. In addition, its big screen is very good for my aged eyes. After much debate, I choose the wi-fi version of iPad because 3G network costs are too expensive for me….
