A few cool resources and products, a review of a sweet plugin you're gonna want to check out, another exciting edition of How'd They Do That? and we present part three of our fireside chat with Charles Dye that's part of our special mini-series we call The 30 Days Of Dye.
IT'S OUR 20th SHOW! YAHOO!
Charles Dye began his engineering career in 1992. Since that time he's mixed hits for Ricky Martin, Sammy Hagar, Julio Iglesias, and Jon Bon Jovi. He's also recorded artists such as Aerosmith, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Gloria Estefan, among many others. This is Part #3 of 4 in our special series, The 30 Days Of Dye.
The studio where Mix It Like A Record was filmed:
Tri-Tone Digital ColorTone-Free & ColorTone-Pro ($129) - ColorTone is a "Tone Box" which simulates the signal path of analog devices through the use of convolution and various proprietary non-linear processes. ColorTone is designed to provide analog-like character and flavor to the modern digital audio workstation.
ColorTone-Pro allows the user to load their own samples (instructions for sampling your own equipment are included) and provides the user with our custom-coded Warmth algorithm to enhance the signal-path with extra harmonic goodness.
Big Al's Review Recommendation:
He gives ColorTone 5 out of 5 VU meters!
Answer To Last Week's Trivia Question:
Q: Who was on the very first cover of Rolling Stone magazine?

Congratulations to Jim Farley and Chris Swartwood for submitting the correct answer!
See you next week!
