Today is an exciting day! For the longest time the Genera Studios site was run off of both Wix and Selz - so our main site was not integrated with our store. This was largely due to starting with Wix, realizing it couldn't support the features we needed, and using Selz to support those features.  For example, Wix only supports 1GB file sizes and doesn't really support free products.... While our Wix/Selz hybrid store technically did everything we needed in terms of file delivery, there were many issues: It wasn't a seamless experience The product pages on Selz were very...

I recently tried to figure out how to implement some of the new KSP features in Kontakt 6, and hit a wall when trying to implement the new UI_Wavetable control.

Eventide has released a SP2016 Reverb plug-in based on their history-making SP2016 rack-mount effects unit. The original hardware unit was and still is a go-to reverb for many great engineers, but this plug-in gives you access to the algorithms used in the original in a much cheaper and more convenient format. Eventide has released a Reverb 2016 rack-mount unit that recreates the SP2016 hardware, but that sells for almost $2,000. Every so often a used SP2016 will pop up online, and sell for around $800 or more - so the plug-in gives an excellent value compared to both hardware options...
