FabFilter Pro-R Reverb Review http://prorec.com/2016/12/fabfilter-pro-r-reverb-review/ http://prorec.com/2016/12/fabfilter-pro-r-reverb-review/#respond Thu, 15 Dec 2016 19:03:22 +0000 http://prorec.com/?p=939 I certainly have enough reverbs. Some of the best out there, in fact. Yet, for some reason, when FabFilter announced they would be releasing Pro-R, I became curious and highly interested. I guess it says a lot about FabFilter’s reputation for quality. But despite not having any need whatsoever for another reverb, I just had to give Pro-R a try. So here’s what I found.FabFilter Pro-R is...

Over the past few years, Spitfire has burst onto the scene, originally developing libraries for a select number of people, and now becoming a top staple in the orchestral sampling world (they do non-orchestral stuff, but this is their bread and butter). They have...

FabFilter Releases Pro-R Reverb Plugin http://prorec.com/2016/11/fabfilter-releases-pro-r-reverb-plugin/ http://prorec.com/2016/11/fabfilter-releases-pro-r-reverb-plugin/#respond Wed, 16 Nov 2016 07:22:37 +0000 http://prorec.com/?p=894 I need another reverb like I need a hole in the head. But I said that last time. Do we need another reverb? Who knows. But when a company like FabFilter comes out with one, it’s very much worth paying attention to. So they have my attention as they have released their newest plugin, Pro-R. According to FabFilter, Pro-R doesn’t aim to emulate any particular hardware, which is...

But without a little direction, it’s easy to let things get out of hand. So wouldn’t it be interesting if you had the ability to channel a professional mastering engineer’s studio and settings to use on your...

But it appears that PACE has released a new version of their iLok USB licenser boasting several new features.One of the features you will notice, in fact probably the only one you will...
