One of the most sought-after sounds in modern music is the Antares Auto-Tune EFX 3 and you have the chance to get an incredible price of $49 (MSRP $129) from Thursday today until the 30th of May!
Powered by the same core technology as Antares’ professional standard Auto-Tune 7, Auto-Tune EFX 3 is the quickest, easiest-to-use tool for real-time pitch correction and creating the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect.
Like Auto-Tune 7, Auto-Tune EFX 3′s pitch correction works by continuously tracking the pitch of your vocal and comparing it to the notes in a (customizable) scale. The scale note closest to the input pitch is identified as the target note. If your vocal’s pitch exactly matches the target note, no correction is applied. If your vocal’s pitch varies from the target note, either sharp or flat, the output pitch is smoothly corrected to the target note.
You spent days on your latest mix, it sounds great on your monitors, but you check it on an tablet and it sounds awful! MixChecker is a fantastic tool that will save your mixes from sounding horrible on any of the multitude of different playback devices!
Now it will be a thing of the past, having to export your mixes and listen in different conditions. Finished the struggle of having to export your mix to your smartphone, burn them on a CD or sit and listen in your car, then go back to your studio, do little tweaks and export again (and again, and again, till it is right).
Audified measured the frequency responses and behaviour of all the devices listed in MixChecker in laboratory conditions to create their true and faithful models that you can rely on.
Now you can use the MixChecker to perform quick round test that will only take a few seconds. And get back to mixing and corrections while you still know what the problem in your mix was.

In early 2016, we at DontCrack/Plugivery took over Nomad Factory’s management and have saved the company and kept all the employees.
We also implemented a very important element in building an efficient and well documented support system for Nomad Factory. Our new support system can be accessed via the link, help.nomadfactory.com, where we have created lots of answers (FAQs) to general and specific technical questions to aid use of the products and throughly deal with common support queries at first contact. Users can now also easily access their licenses/serials/activation codes via the ‘Licenses’ tab.
In addition to this, Nomad Factory’s R&D team is actively working on new products and since January we launched Drum Tools and Bus Driver.
When we first decided to do the Bus Driver as a giveaway, we planned to stop it after a month or 25,000 units, whichever came first. We gave away twice that number as of March, and had great success reaching out to the audio community.
We are now approaching an amazing total of 60,000 Bus Driver units delivered. We’ve received hundreds of amazing testimonials from users that simply love the sound and feel of the plug-in.
As all Nomad Factory products, Bus Driver is easy to use, has a beautiful GUI, has great colourful textures and at the end, it simply does what it advertises. We’ve even already updated the plug-in to version 1.0.3 with new features reflecting users request. We hope to have pleased everyone.
As of today and for a limited time, we are going to sell Bus Driver, at the no-brainer price of ONLY $4.99, which is the same ridiculous price as a can of your favourite soft drink. Please continue your support, we love that you’re enjoying these superb Nomad Factory products.

Important news for all of you who want to chain their VST3 plug-ins to create fantastic signal paths. Blue Cat Audio has in addition to existing VST2 and Audio Unit hosting, now added the ability to use VST3 format plug-ins.
Now it is possible to mix VST2, VST3 and Audio Units together in the same session, even if your host application does not support all plug-ins formats!
The update is free for existing customers and is available for download on the Blue Cat Audio site.
Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer are available in VST, VST3, RTAS, AAX, Audio Unit and DirectX plug-in formats or as a standalone application (PatchWork only), for both Mac and PC (32 and 64-bit).
What’s New in Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.73 and MB-7 Mixer 2.53:
VST3 plug-ins hosting.
Fixed VST3 version crash in Wavelab 9.
Fixed issue with parameters precision in VST3 version.
Improved automatic I/O configuration for VST and VST3 versions.
So, the ‘Best Got Even Better’! Once again, AAS raises the bar in the re-creation of the classic Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos. Adding valuable enhancements already to their super emulation of classic electric pianos, Applied Acoustics Systems have been hard at work.
The Lounge Lizard EP-4 v4.1.1 update includes the following fixes to bring you an even better product.
Fixed buffer overflow in old MIDI code that caused crashes in LiveProfessor (and maybe occasionally in other DAWs).
When plug-in GUI is closed and re-opened, it doesn’t revert back to the “Play” pane automatically anymore.
Fixed VST parameter value display in VST hosts for equaliser gains.
Some notes were not played in very rare situations when the damper pedal was used.
PSPaudioware has released PSP B-Scanner, an emulation of the analog scanner-based effect available in the most sought-after models of vintage Hammond tonewheel organs (such as B-3, C-3, A-100 and others).
Although the PSP B-Scanner has been meticulously designed to recreate the classic sound of the Hammond B-3 Vibrato and Chorus, it offers a wide range of options designed to allow a user to maximize the potential of this unique effect.
Toontrack has announced their latest promos for May and June.
The EZKeys Essential Pianos bundle pack is on promo at 40% off retail price and if you buy a regular version of EZkeys for only $149 (20% off MSRP $179), and you get one EZkeys MIDI title of your choice for FREE! Pick up your MIDI pack directly from the Toontrack website upon product registration.
The Essential EZKeys Pianos bundle combines the revolutionary EZkeys software with three products from the EZkeys Line. Included are four equally iconic as essential instruments in any studio’s or songwriter’s toolbox; the timeless grand piano, the intimate upright as well as two of the world’s most defining and characteristic electric pianos, the Rhodes MK I and the Wurlitzer 200 A.
The Essential Pianos bundle has the sounds you need for anything from epic classical compositions and intimate jazz sessions to rock, pop and soul.
On the opposite end, acts like the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac took on a noticeably more polished production suit. Still, both sounds were very much products attributed to the advances of recording technology. The Seventies Rock EZX sets out to capture that scope – from the farthest end of epic, earth-shattering and reverberant down to classic, dampened and low-key.
The recording sessions were held at the Columbia Studio A in Nashville, one of the world’s most famed recording studios.The EZX includes three fundamentally different kits: a bombastic-sounding, one-of-a-kind replica of Buddy Rich’s ’70s-era Slingerland as well as two different renditions of a mid-‘70s Camco – one with standard drum heads and one with toweled.
This Expansion adds a whole new dimension to the powerful collection of drum sounds available for EZdrummer 2.
