An Ohm Force group buy is arriving…

If you like purchasing great plug-ins at reduced price, you better stay tuned in the mighty ProTooler Blog during next days. We’re glad to announce an imminent Ohm Force Group Buy in partnership with one of the the nicest computer music production blogs out there. The concept? Union is strength! The more people subscribes to participate and commits to buy, the bigger the discount – up to phat 50% off. You know that pimp your production setup at a half price will always be a good idea, so don’t loose this opportunity and spread the words to your friends: if they come, they can help increase your and everybody’s discount! Early participants of the Group Buy will even have an additional reward: those who subscribe during the 7 first days (aka “Happy First Week”) will get two additional discount levels at the end.

Despite being focused on what works on ProTools, most of the news/reviews on ProTooler Blog talks about softwares that are multiplatform, and that’s it became a reference blog also for people on Live, Logic or Cubase. If you’ve never been there yet, check it out right now, no matter sequencer you work with.

Brazilian Girls and Ohm Force @ Remix Mag

Don’t you know Brazilian Girls yet? This new-yorker band is almost an ONU meeting: the singer Sabina is from Italy, Aaron the drummer is american, and Didi at the synths is from Venezuela (the “Brazil” thing in the name is only to make it even more cosmopolitan and cooler). Their sound is far away from any indie NY rock cliché: they flirt (a lot) with electronica, folk, and many other sonic trips. They’re experimental without being boring, which is a nice thing. Even nicer was their mighty producer Hector Castillo, who has mentioned the use of “ample doses” of several Ohm Force plugins in his recent interview for Remix Mag. Hector is the guy behind Thirsty Dog Productions (David Bowie, Björk, Roger Waters, among other big names) and came to the Ohm side of the Force last year. It seems he’s having some fun with his new plugs, so check his sound out and try to figure out what plugin he used in each track… 🙂
