Welcome to Drumaxx, in this video I do a quick once-over of the plugin...
As you probably have already seen, until the 31st of March 2010 we are selling Drumaxx under the 'Pay what you think it's worth' system. The minimum is 9 Euros to cover our costs, but after that it's entirely up to you what you think Drumaxx is worth and how much Image-Line deserves.
Also, we are giving $1 USD to a charity (TBA) associated with supporting Haitian earthquake victims.
Spread the love and grab a copy of Drumaxx before we come to our senses :)
Head over to the Drumaxx page for Mac and Windows installers (VST, AU and FL native) and to hear some great audio demos.
When you have made some of your own sounds for Drumaxx, why not share the love on the Drumaxx preset forum.
Drumaxx is a percussion modeling instrument that gives total control of 16 physically modeled drums. Each drum can be routed to independent output for external effects processing. Drumaxx includes 130 drumkits, 900 drum patches, 200 drum patterns and not a single sample in sight.

Huge range of modeling possibilities covering sounds from cymbals to kettle-drums

Following the huge success of Harmless, we are launching Drumaxx with the pay what you think it’s worth system. Until the 31st of March you can pay a minimum of 9 Euro to cover our costs. Dowload the unlockable demo from the Drumaxx web-page check it out then go to the Image-Line shop and show us what Drumaxx is worth to you.
Image-Line is also pleased to announce that we will donate 1 USD from each sale to support Haiti earthquake victims.
Keyboard shortcuts can make a huge difference to your work-flow in FL Studio, this one in particular is great when you have long Piano roll patterns and need to move about in them at fairly high zoom. The same technique works in the Playlist.
Not even gol (FL Studio's creator) or me (manual writer) can remember every Keyboard shortcut, but a few select ones go a long way to making FL Studio the quickest way from your brain to your speakers :)
The role of the modern monitor speaker (the Wikipedia link left covers the topic quite well), seems to have shifted squarely to the 'flat frequency response' active (self amplified) design philosophy. Interestingly, when you check the advertising material for most nearfield monitors very few show frequency plots and shy away from making any claims they have actually have, or even strived for, a flat frequency response.
In light of the above, it's interesting to see the absolute vehemence with which Hi-Fi speakers are attacked in internet forums. Most forum members seem to have swallowed the marketing hype and assume their 'studio monitors' must be better than anything that is sold as a Hi-Fi speaker. What seems to be lacking in these arguments is, surprise surprise, evidence.
Any speaker, regardless of its origins, should be judged on its own merits. Those merits should ideally include some objective measure of the speakers performance. So what speakers are you using for monitoring and what does their frequency response plot look like? If you can find one :)
