    In the Mix

    I demonstrate a simple song idea and how just a few presets and plugins can completely transform a mix.

    Next up we have the Microshift plug-in. With simple pitch and delay modulation any mono source can be made into a glorious stereo one.

    Primal Tap

    The Primal Tap is modeled after the Lexicon Prime Time and does an amazing job of keeping the quirky character of the original hardware unit.

    Tweak Menu

    Primal Tap has six algorithms that determine how both channels and their feedback circuit interact. There are also options to tweak the modulation, panning, and phase.

    Little Altar Boy

    Little Alter Boy can be used to do simple pitch shifting all the way to transforming a instrument or vocal into something completely different and unrecognizable.

    Wrap it Up

    Let’s take a look at some of the little features and improvements for some of the other plugins. There are some really great tweak menu improvements. My favorite being Tremolator.

Product Overview

Soundtoys 5 is the defacto standard for high quality, time and harmonic based effects. In these video training tutorials, studio guru Scottie Dugan shows you the new plug-ins, workflow, sonics, and tweakability enhancements made in the newest version of these amazing plug-ins.

Starting with a basic introduction to how Soundtoys has upped its game, Scottie zooms right into the Effects Rack, giving you a general overview as well as exploring all of its improvements.

That leads right into a video on the enhanced preset handling, as presets are such a major component of the Effects Rack. After that, Scottie demonstrates how using the Effects Rack creatively can completely transform a mix.

Scottie continues with a video on the new Microshift Pitch and Delay Modulation plug-in, which is followed by two videos covering the new Primal Tap Delay, a delay modeled on the Lexicon Prime Time delay.

The second Primal Tap video is devoted to the Tweak Menu, where the real power lies. The final plug-in covered is Little Alter Boy, a combination of tuner, pitch shifter and vocoder.

Scottie demonstrates how you can use this plug-in to transform an instrument or vocal into something completely new. Finally, the series ends with a look at some of the minor tweaks and enhancements to plug-ins like Tremolator that push Soundtoys 5 over the top.
