If you are into music production in some way, you probably don’t have much to do right now besides eat, sleep and create (unless you have kids, of course). On the whole, we creatives have it pretty good. Adding to all the freeware and extended trials that popped up over the past few weeks, the people behind Plugin Boutique, iZotope, Producertech and Loopcloud teamed up to make our days (and nights) brighter with the #StayInCreate initiative.
The initiative plays like a four-part harmony. First off, iZotope is giving away Neutron 3 Elements, its revered mixing tool & channel strip. Netron 3 Elements features a good bit of functionality, including an AI-driven mixing assistant which helps with setting up Neutron’s procesors – EQ, compressor, exciter and transient shaper.
Part two – Producertech provides three months of all-access membership completely free of charge. One of the better online music production schools around, Producertech has gobs and gobs of content to sink your teeth into while on downtime. That’s over 400 hours of tutorials, hundreds of projects and presets, and over 10GB of Loopmasters samples that’s yours to take advantage of.
Part three – Loopmasters has opened up its Loopcloud in-daw sample library with a free 30-day trial of its Studio Plan. This lets you grab up to 300 sounds per month and an additional 25 free sounds daily.
Part four – Plugin Boutique is giving away the Radio plug-in, an online radio streaming plug-in that lets you record the last 30 seconds of any stream right in your DAW. Grabbing sounds from radio is a sampling classic that’s now modernized for DAW-based producers. In addition to streaming, Radio offers as many as 24 FX processors to, hopefully, mangle your sampled audio beyond the recognition of rights holders.
Great! Where is all that?
