The redesigned V7 of novatlan-sound.de brings a network bar at the top with links to my other projects, as well as social media icons and lots of other goodies.
The Studio section has been completely revamped with updated equipment and library lists, etc. This was sorely needed as I switched my rig from OSX and Logic to Windows 8.1 and Cubase/Nuendo last year. A new huge orchestral template spread over three machines now ensures a great workflow - I could not be happier.
While we are all sorry for the loss of the old year, which we have grown to love over the course of its lifetime, we are sure you will be more than up for the task :)
So I wish everyone a Happy New Year 2012, hopefully a good one for health, success and a fair share of great people your way.
I have lots of exciting projects in the pipeline for 2012, including a bunch of Sibelius seminars, the wonderful world of SCOREcast, and many many more!
I am also working on a new version of my Logic Pro and VE Pro tutorial. If there’s something missing in there, this would be a good time to tell me. I will do my best to address your questions in the new version.
The previously announced „Regular Captivating Bits“ section is now live!
There I post tips, tricks and lots of other things about composition, orchestration, arrangement and many more topics. I quote myself from the announcement: For me, helping each other is an important thing. I believe in learning by doing and I think that you should never stop learning new things. I regularly help people out with quick tips which - according to them - have made their life easier. So why not share all this with you! There are lots of little tips and tricks that can make you a better composer or artist.
I hope you like it. The page will be updated very frequently. You can also subscribe to the RSS feed to stay up-to-date.
Soon I will start a new section on the tutorials page called „Regular Captivating Bits“, where you will find all sorts of quick tips, hints and lots of other stuff. Basically, this will be the place for everything I want to tell you which does not fit on this blog. This page will be updated quite often, with the tips coming from every aspect of music production you can imagine: composition, orchestration, arrangement, business, software tips, links to great resources and many, many more things!
Watch this space so you don’t miss it when the „Regular Captivating Bits“ go live!
Please note that this site can also be accessed at www.tobias-escher.com from now on. I was told that novatlan-sound.de was slightly hard to remember. I totally do not understand this. It is such an easy name :)
Emails should work again, too. If I owe anyone an email and haven’t responded yet, give me a gentle bump.
Updated layout of most pages, revised texts everywhere aaaaand - finally - a tutorials page! Here you can find the Vienna Ensemble Pro tutorial, as well as all the tutorials for macProVideo.com and more.
If you are interested in composition, orchestration or arrangement lessons, there is a new section on this page for you, too. The same applies for help with setting up studio gear, I’ve developed quite a Mother Theresa-syndrome over the last year in this respect :)
Hope you like it and take care!
I updated the services page, there are a few new tracks on the music page and little bits here and there over the whole site.
It should also display better now on portable devices. Call it spring-cleaning if you like.
I was pretty happy on how my Sibelius seminar end of January went. I think everyone benefited from it, I learned a lot in the process, too. I’ve updated the site about the Seminar a bit and will announce any new seminars there, so check back from time to time! If you subscribe to updates, either via the blog RSS feed or use the contact form on the Sibelius site, you’ll be notified of any seminars immediately.
Hope you like the changes and have a nice spring!
Farewell, 2010! We had a lot of fun, now we’ll see how your successor does.
A big thanks to all of you for your support. 2010 has had some exciting projects and there’s a lot in the pipeline already for 2011, so stay tuned.
I hope all of you had no problems going over to the new year, most notably slippery surfaces due to frozen liquids on the street or alcoholic liquids in your blood circle. Or both.
I hope you enjoy the Holidays and find time to relax a bit from work.
And then off to 2011. May 2011 be a good year to us all, with lots of exciting things to do, and of course lots of music :)
In case you didn’t notice: There’s a shiny new Soundcloud player at the bottom of all pages. It gives you my most recent tracks from my Soundcloud page while you are browsing my site.
I hope to have some good news regarding the VE Pro Tutorial soon...
I updated the music page. Now there’s a shiny new Soundcloud player. Regularly, I post new tracks on Soundcloud, which are not (yet) on my Demo CD. So now you can listen to these directly on the site, too.
Besides, I updated the studio section, most notably the equipment list.
Have fun :)
There will be another silent update with some new equipment content later this week - I basically wanted to get the blog improvements out :)
novatlan-sound.de has a new site design!
Now it can safely be revealed: The old design, introduced in May 2010, was only kind of a placeholder until this new site was complete.
There are tons of new things:
- At last, a nice header, it even comes with colour transitions, just to prove that we indeed have the year 2010 :)
- A new footer, where you have all the links to the social networks in one place, the two most recent posts at Twitter and a short biography.
- The home page is completely redesigned!
- I got rid of the Flash slideshow on the studio page. Flash is dying out, which is a good thing. Unfortunately, the player on the music page still requires Flash, but hopefully there will be a replacement soon.
- The studio page now has more information, including comments on a few pieces of gear.
- and many, many more things...
Have a look around. I hope you like the new site!
While I was at it, I also updated the gear list as there are a few new things there.
If you have not done so, please subscribe to the Twitter feed to always have the total knowledge of everything around here :)
After including social media in the last few weeks, now the redesigned Studio section is online along with a brand-new Services page. There you can have a look at the services offered by Novatlan Sound and see what we can do for you.
All the other pages have been expanded, too, including a far more powerful contact form.
As always, feedback is greatly appreciated.
