Wanna make beats like the rest of the cool cats? Be sure to check out Catlab, a collaborative site where you can make beats just using one of those rodents you like to catch...a mouse.
Catlab is a feline takover of BandLab, a super cool app for iPhone & Android where musicians from all over the world can collaborate. For example, you record a guitar part in New York and somebody in Singapore can record a bassline. Then somebody in Australia makes a remix of it and another from Utah lays down a vocal. Its a lot of fun and great for building inspiration.

Eventide has just announced a killer deal on the secret weapon of reverb, Blackhole. From now through the end of March, 2016, Blackhole can be bought for only $49! Most reverbs are earth-bound and constrained by the physics of the real world. Eventide’s Blackhole reverb breaks the rules by allowing you to create virtual spaces that could never exist in our reality. At large sizes, its soft attack and lingering, harmonic tails allow it to really shine on guitars, strings and pads. At small sizes, those very same qualities can help add an angelic sheen to vocals or turn a simple drum track into an otherworldly rhythm section.
