How to fix Limelite in Reaktor

Limelite is part of the Electronic Instruments Volume 2 bundle from Native Instruments. It's a great, quirky Drum Machine that has a unique flavour. Problem is that for most people it's broken! Tie, one of the drum channels is not set up correctly and this video shows you how to fix it.

Cubase - Kontakt Output Config

Setting up the Kontakt Outputs and then the Cubase Mixer.

Kontakt 3 Output Config in Logic - The Short Way

The quick route to getting multiple outputs configured (running in Logic 8 but its the same with any other sequencer). You will need the Kontakt 2 Library .nkm files imported to your database and added to the quickload to use this method.

Download the files from here:

Kontakt 3 Output Config in Logic - The Long Way

The rather long winded set up of individual outputs in Kontakt3 (running in Logic 8 but its the same with any other sequencer). This way is the more detailed but ultimately long winded way of doing it. It's worth checking out for the more technically minded viewers. If you can't be bothered with the techy shiz check out my other video!

Broken Beats in Cubase with Halion One

All in one take, a bruk flavoured rhythm using Halion One in Cubase 4

Relaxed Hip Hop/Neo Soul Beat in Reason

For those relaxed vibes the new Regroove Mixer is wicked. I've always used track delay to add groove to my beats and to see that stuff integrated in there as well as some great groove templates it's a killer for the downtempo flavours.

Behind the Scenes on the Enzyme Black Remix of Cookie Monsterz

This remix was produced 'in the box' on Logic 8. The only third party instrument used is Predator ( Ultrabeat was purely used as a sound module and i played the beats in using the keyboard. When i received all the parts i wasn't keen on the main sung hook so i took it out and replaced it with the 'its time to jack' rap and underpinned it with a pitch shifted version to add some variety. The full mix package is available to buy from

Noise Machine in Reaktor

This is the final part of a series of videos in an exercise on the Point Blank Online Sound Design Course. The aim was to build a dedicated white noise sweep machine instead of having to load a complete synth to do the job. A band pass filter is used for the sweep and is modulated by an ADSR Envelope.

Editing Foley Samples in Soundtrack Pro

This video goes through some simple editing when checking out a long sample recorded for the Foley lesson of the Point Blank Online Sound Design Course. I now use Soundtrack Pro for all of my editing work when on the Mac and actually now prefer it to Wavelab (my old workhorse on the PC)
