Every musician has been there. Youíre trying to record a track in your home studio and it just never
sounds quite right. The tone is thin, the effects plastic, and music sounds choked. It sounds as if it
were recorded in, well, your bedroom. Home recordings, as well as many professional studio recordings,
lack the full rich sound of a live concert. Home recording environments simply donít have the acoustics
or the equipment to record a vibrant, full, real sounding performance, until now. Born To Rock solves
these frustrating problems with their latest release, Rockster+ Pro.
Born To Rock
is an innovative music company that brings new technologies to bear on the world of rock and roll.
They produce widely used electric guitars and basses made out of metal instead of the traditional
wood and develop software geared toward the ever-growing digital recording paradigm.
Rockster+ Pro is an important innovation in home recording. This software allows artists to pack warm analog drive and concert hall ambience
into digital recordings and turn dead tracks into big live-sounding mixes without the expensive equipment found at professional recording studios.
With Rockster+ Pro, recording artists can use one of seven presets or create their own unique production setting. A GUI panel provides controls
for factory and user presets, reverb time, decay and mix, heat, drive, space and dither. Reverb controls are independently adjustable for
reflections from rear, side, ceiling and audience so you can design your own concert hall's size, shape, and liveliness. With this program
an artist can place a recording in any venue from a small club to a giant opera hall.
A key feature that sets this software apart is file analysis. Rockster+ Pro does not work in real-time like most recording and production software.
Instead, the program analyzes the entire sound file before applying any effects or modifications. This prevents ugly noises from clipping and blends
all of the parameters at once instead of piping the signal through a chain of compressors and processors. Rockster+ Pro will also warn you of any
overages before it processes modifications so you have the option to re-record the track.
