Recieved this from SSL earlier today. We haven't the time but if anyone is interested in applying...
BETA TESTERS REQUIRED
Ever wanted to take part in a beta test programme?
Want some free software?
This is your chance.
As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver great products Solid State Logic is about to conduct a ‘Public Beta Test’ for the new ‘Duende Native V5’ plug-in collection. We need 300 testers to try out our VST/Audio Units/RTAS plug-ins for 2 weeks and then fill out a short questionnaire giving us some
feedback on how it went.
WHAT YOU WOULD NEED TO DO
If you are selected to participate in the programme here is what would happen; we would send you a web site address and some log in details, you would log in, download some software, install it, activate a demo license for it… and use it for a couple of weeks. We would give you log in details for a forum where you can give us feedback as you go along if you want to. When the test phase is over you would need to complete a 10 min ‘Exit Survey’ questionnaire giving us some simple information about your experiences. The software will be a fully functional ‘release candidate’ which has already been tested by a smaller group of professional beta testers… it is essentially ready to be launched… so should work for you without problems and should present no threat to your system. The point of a Public Beta Test is to ensure that software which we know works on a relatively small number of systems, works as it should on a much larger selection of host computers and combinations of host software.
WHAT YOU WOULD GET IN RETURN
All participants who complete the test will receive one free Duende Native plug-in. When participants complete the ‘Exit Survey’ they will be invited to select which of the Duende Native Plug-ins they would like to receive. Free plug-in licences will be delivered to participants after the product has been publicly launched.
WHAT YOU WOULD NEED
We will select 300 participants based on their combination of host computer and host DAW software environment to ensure that we get a good cross section of test systems. To participate therefore you would need a Mac or PC computer and at least one host application which can run VST/Audio Units/RTAS plug-ins. You will need some time to try out our plug-ins. Duende Native Plug-ins run natively using your host computer… they do not require a Duende hardware unit. We encourage existing Duende Hardware and Duende Native owners to participate but owning a Duende plug-in of any type is not a requirement!
HOW TO APPLY…
Hit the Apply Now button and fill out the questionnaire.
We will inform all applicants whether or not they have been selected to participate.
THE APPLICATION FORM WILL REMAIN OPEN UNTIL 9AM GMT ON SUNDAY 23RD MARCH 2014 :: APPLY NOW at http://dmtrk.net/7YS-29XPG-19GLC1-YZPC1-0/c.aspx

If you have a studio that uses hardware a couple of the issues that you face is getting everything connected and keeping all the leads tidy. If you hardwire equipment point to point it can be a real pain to swop things around, introduce new hardware and so on. If you want to know if you should put the compressor before or after the eq you physically have to swop equipment around or use a patchbay. A problem with either of those is that you can only accurately remember musical detail for about 1 second and so by the time you've swopped patch leads, or worse still, physically moved stuff about, you've forgotten what you heard with any real degree of accuracy. That's a major headache for a mastering engineer as we have to make informed decision on where and how to use equipment in a chain.
Our solution arrived yesterday. It's a Dangerous Music 'Liasion' - an intelligent router that lets you place your hardware simultaneouly on 2 busses and instantly switch them in and out, change their position in the chain, send any to parallel processing and monitor the pre and post inserts of both busses.
This a photo of ours
We send all 4 monitor signals to a Crane Song Avocet II. There are 4 monitor signals as there are two busses each of which has a pre and a post insert point. The Avocet also allows us to adjust the gain/volume of an instantly in order to level match diferent inputs. The photo shows the remote control unit and you can also see the 2 unit 'brain' in the previous photo below the Liasion.
All of that means that the cabling in the studio is a little involved. As it's nearly Spring we used some time to tidy things up a bit. This is a photo of the back of the Liasion after we spring cleaned! In our defense it's wired to 4 hardware EQs (a GR MEQ 2NV, Gyraf XIV, Kush Clariphonic and a Neve), 2 compressors (Maselec MLA2, API 2500), the Avocet, a PrismSound Orpheus AD/DA and an Eventide Reverb. That's a lot of XLR connections - we use 3x8 way looms plus a DB25- 8XLRF (to link the Liasion to the Avocet) and a few other standard xlr leads to hook everything together.

Part of a brief but at times interesting interview with heavy metal mixer/producer Andy Sneap.
Nice to see that Andy, just like me, doesn't use a spectrum analyser (@ 4'05''). Whilst they can at times be helpful to someone who is learning to mix they do not help in the long run and you should learn to mix with our ears not your eyes.
