About Chocolate Audio
Chocolate Audio started its operations in early 2003 when Simone Coen, the company founder, entered the studio to sample top-studio-cat Elio Rivagli’s drum kit for his own work. The results turned out to be so good that he decided to deliver it to a wider audience. Imperial Drums, marketed by Scarbee, was born.
The XL version of Imperial Drums was honored with 5-stars on Sound On Sound and with a very good review on the now-gone Virtual Instruments Magazine, where SID XL is mainly praised for its quality and lifelike rendition of its samples.
Starting 2006, Chocolate Audio worked mainly for third parties or joint publications: work can be heard on Native Instruments’ Battery 3, SONiVOX’s Loop Line, Arobas Guitar Pro 6, Ableton Live Session Drums, Cakewalk Rapture Pro 2, Steinberg Groove Agent 4 (and many of its expansions) and HALion, Presonus StudioOne 3 and Fxpansion’s Imperial Drums BFD.
Now, they’re ready to sweeten-up your musical world with a series of new, fresh-sounding Instruments!

These additions make Loudness Toolkit the only choice for achieving loudness guidelines as detailed in Netflix’s best practice document.
The new version also includes updates to the TASA and SAWA alternatives for Leq(m). With the retirement of the Dolby Media Meter, VisLM is now the only suggested Leq(m) plug-in for film trailer measurement to the TASA standard.
Increased channel count allows measurement and correction of 7.1.2 tracks, busses and Dolby Atmos renders.

About Revoice Pro :
Since its initial launch in 2012, Revoice Pro has become a staple for timing and pitch adjustment for vocals, dialog and instruments for audio engineers in both the music and post production industries. Its users do not only appreciate the time they save on editing tasks, but also the program’s ability to retain the natural sound and feel of the original recording, even while performing significant adjustments to the audio.
The tightness of the transferred feature can be controlled to allow natural acceptable differences to pass through unchanged.
Optional user-inserted Protected Regions allow selected sections of the Dub signals to be left unchanged in timing or pitch by the APT process.
The automatic APT processing can be followed by (or replaced by) manual editing of the output features.
APT Pitch (and other feature’s) processing settings can be made time-varying (automated).
Process-based solo switching, via single keys, provides instant audition to compare inputs and outputs one or two signals at a time.
The effects of any changes made to APT control panel parameters will be immediately visible (after rendering) in the displayed output graphics of pitch, level and waveform traces.
Multiple Dub signals can use the same Guide and be efficiently processed at the same time.
A comprehensive Preset system allows saving and reusing settings.
Revoice Pro version 4 is now ARA 2 compatible.
iLok Cloud based licensing for authorization now supported.
Revoice Pro version 4 has a new Vibrato Warp function, which intelligently identifies the singer’s vibrato characteristics.
Waves have released the Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain at the special introductory price of $39. It is a modular mastering chain plugin modeled after the EMI TG12410 Transfer Console used in all Abbey Road’s mastering suites since the early ’70s to this day.
Get Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain for ONLY $39
The distinct solid-state transistor-based sound of the TG12410 has proven itself time and again over many decades. Whether it’s used for mastering as a complete console, or for mixing with only select modules, the TG brings nothing less than magic — the same magic heard on albums like Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, Nirvana’s In Utero, Radiohead’s OK Computer and Ed Sheeran’s “+”. Thanks to this Waves/Abbey Road collaboration, the TG12410 is available outside of Abbey Road Studios and you can now bring the very same magic to your own productions.
Just like the original console, the TG Mastering Chain plugin is made out of modules
TG12411 Input Module
TG12412 Tone Module (EQ)
TG12413 Compressor/Limiter Module
TG12414 Filter Module
TG12416 V.A.L (Spread) Module (stereo component only) incorporated into the Output Module.
Modules can be interchanged (except for input/output modules) and switched on/off to allow for a flexible processing flow and creating custom chains. Individual modules can be used on different tracks and group buses in a mixing session, as well as on the master bus in mastering sessions.
Toontrack have today released their new EZkeys MIDI pack, Movie Scores Romance. Inspired by movie soundtracks to get you in the mood… Available now for 20% offthrough October, only $20 at the DontCrack Store!
Toontrack say this is for scores and more, and for your yet unwritten ballads or romantic soundtracks.
This collection of EZkeys MIDI was inspired by a wide range of soundtracks used in films of the “romance” category. But in many ways, this EZkeys pack goes beyond the realm of scores or soundtracks and instead paints a richly detailed musical framework for anything that falls in the ballad or “romantic” niche. Just as it can be used by any writer of commercial tracks for TV or film, it works just as well for ideas for your yet unwritten ballads. Expect anything from dreamy to wide awake, happy to melancholic and dark to light – all with that unmistakable “movie-like” twist to it.
Feature Spotlight :
Piano/keyboard MIDI inspired by romantic scores and movies
Keywords used for inspiration include: rom-com, romantic drama, comedy, romantic thriller, historical period drama
4/4 and 6/8 playing variations in straight feel with tempos ranging from 61 BPM to 122 BPM
