Function Loops has announced the release of a free video tutorial from an upcoming Stem Mastering with Ozone course.

First course in the Academy series is charting for over a month. So right now, Function Loops team is hard at work to develop the second course – Stem Mastering with Ozone.

Until the official launch, the first video is released for free: how the limiter, maximizer and a few other features work in Ozone. Plus other important information, that all serious producers need.

Function Loops has also released the Spire Factory Bank 2016, a free soundset for the Spire synthesizer instrument by Reveal Sound.

Spire’s new Mod controllers (those 4 big new knobs on the left side) are fully utilized and have assigned cool sound-shaping parameters to all the presets, so each sound now has a few of those (plus the modulation wheel) assigned all the time!

On a mission to kill that prejudice in people that Spire can sound only one way, there are all kinds of presets in there, spanning many genres, from modern to classic.
The first preset is called “Welcome 2Spire” and it’s a powerful lead sound, perfectly representing Spire’s powerful character. Bass sounds come in many flavors, from house, club to psy with some classic synth recreations as well. Synth presets also cover many genres, from house, deep and future to 80s and dub techno! The Keys are deep and playable. A lot of nice plucks, from trance, future, deep to tropical. Also some house and techno chords, lush pads and cool effects.

The free Spire Factory Bank 2016 is available for download at Reveal Sound.
