Heavyocity go full force with new virtual instrument GRAVITY

Heavyocity_Gravity_Box Heavyocity are back with a big bang with their latest virtual instrument – GRAVITY. The team, who are also behind the inspirational AEON collection and Master Sessions series, took eighteen months to develop this new music production tool and it promises to be their biggest venture to date. We got in touch with them to find out more…

So we hear that GRAVITY has been 18 months in development – why has it taken so long?

Well, it’s mostly because GRAVITY is hands-down our biggest endeavour to date. It’s a very deep instrument with four distinct “centres” (Pads, Hits, Risers, and Stings). And working out the details of each of the sections, from both the creative and technical fronts, took a lot of R&D. We also wanted to make sure that we didn’t just rush the product out before we were sure that it was right (i.e. an exciting product for us to use). Our standard is to always produce tools that reflect our vision – tools that are useful, productive, and FUN to use. Continue reading

iZotope RX comes to the rescue at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios

RWS externalBased in the village of Box in Wiltshire, Real World Studios is one of the UK’s most impressive studio complexes, not just in terms of the superb facilities on offer to musicians and producers, but also the remarkably beautiful and inspirational setting of a 200-year old watermill. Originally conceived by world renowned singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel, the studio has steadily increased its offering in recent years to also include facilities and services for post-production work.

We recently found out that iZotope’s RX 4 audio enhancement and repair software is now a staple toolkit in Real World Studio’s post-production set-up since the team saw the impressive results Peter Gabriel’s engineer Dickie Chappell had produced when he used RX to clean up some old recordings.

iZotope RX 4 at Real World StudiosThe award-winning software is frequently being utilised by the studios for a range of tasks and projects including foley recordings, restoration work and mixing. We got in touch with the guys to get the lowdown on the real-life scenarios in which RX has come to the rescue, what they particularly like about the software as well as a deeper insight into the studios themselves.

Head on over to the Time+Space website now to read the feature in full.
