After a long wait the Virtual Mix Rack from Slate Digital is now released.
The VIRTUAL MIX RACK continues the Slate Digital tradition of providing the absolute most authentically modeled analog sound in a digital audio plugin.
The ‘VMR’ includes four world class mix modules, including two classic equalizers and two versatile mix compressors, with more modules to be developed.
The ‘VMR’ operates as a Virtual 500 series rack with hot-swappable modules, putting your whole processing chain in ONE WINDOW. This allows you customize your own channel strip, with signal flow following the modules, in any order you choose. Mix and match filters from different EQs. Chain an EQ before or after your compressor. Moving modules around is easy, fast, and creates no break in audio playback. Audition signal chains faster, easier, and in real time with the Slate ‘VMR’.
Out now is “Art Plastique”, the 5th album of Celluloide. “Art Plastique” is the band’s first album fully written in French. You can expect well crafted french sung electronic pop tunes, 8 in total, with a more minimal approach compared to their earlier work. You can order the new album right here.

After a memorable collaboration with Daft Punk on 2013’s Random Access Memories, electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder is back, releasing his first album of solo material in over 30 years. Announced today, the album is set to drop in spring 2015 on Sony/RCA and features a new batch of notable collaborators including Britney Spears, Sia, Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX, and more. Alongside the album announcement comes a new video for the track “74 is the New 24,” premiering exclusively on The Creators Project.
The video, directed by Jai Lewis with help from Andromeda Software Development, is a striking digital landscape of beautiful, strange images that demand rewatching. “We wanted to achieve that Giorgio Moroder ‘retro-future’ feel,” explains Lewis, who is also collaborating with Moroder on a 2015 DJ tour. Lewis continues: “His attention to detail is especially sharp and the sheer amount of time dedicated to this production will surely reflect this. I don’t know how this man has the energy to tour, work on an new album, be a family man, and last of all, musical pioneer.” The Creators Project spoke to the man himself, Giorgio Moroder, about his career, creative process, and influence on modern music.
