Gear Reviews (19)


Here you will find reviews of gear I use or have used in the past. All reviews are based on my experiences with products I choose for my tasks and I do not do paid endorsements. Reviews are honest personal opinions of each product often after some time of use. Not everything I buy works out so this can be a good way to see how it may actually work for you. Of course any questions are welcome, just leave a comment on the page.

If you have a VST you would love to browse from Push please contact me and see if I can assist. I can only offer assistance for VSTs and expansions I own so the more donations I receive the more I can put towards new instruments.

FreelanceSoundlabs Initial News

Written by


So here is our first news announcement article. Today we have completed a lot of the initial design checks and component tests on the site and are now ready to start progressing with the website. 

There is a LOT to do but much of the underlying framework has been completed (with the exception of the shopping component whcih we will start on next year). You will notice that as you visit from day to day new things will start to appear and change as we add and format things to fit. The site is online while we work so that it can be edited from the various locations that I am in and so it can start to be indexed by search engines. 

The site now has music players that will work on all devices and content will be added and updated as the months roll by. Once the main site is completed I will begin work on a number of new projects from SFX packs to music productions. I am also working on making everything nice and stremlined so it is simple to find the information you are after. Artwork is a slower process because I am not a graphics designer so it takes me a little longer to generate artwork but it is moving along. 

More news when I have some!

Product Review Articles

Written by

Currently I am in the process of uploading all my old product reviews. I am updating some of the reviews to reflect my opinions after using some of the products for some time and will also be writing some new reviews on products I have aquired in the last few years. 

These product reviews may be of interest if you want to know what we use at Freelance Soundlabs or if you are interested in tsome of the products yourself. 
Just because we use certain products doesn't mean we love them inside out. While many have been hand picked to fit certain requirements sometimes products just don't work as you had hoped. 
I personally try and seek out "real" reviews on products from users that have actually spent time using them and actually have genuine needs for them. Reviews from online stores or audio/sound blogging sites can sometimes be biased depending on the kickbacks or relationships with a vendor. Here at FSL we have no ties to vendors and get no kickbacks or free gear though if you are a company who would like to offer us something for free for a review then contact us!!!!!!
Feel free to leave your comments on any review pages and hopefully you gain some insight into what we do and use. Keep an eye out for new reviews on Ableton and the Push Controller, Mackie MCU, Rode NT3 Mic, Native Instruments Komplete 8/9, Omnisphere, Trilian and many more....

Testing The New DJ Setup

Written by

We have just started to rebuild our DJ service for the South Australian area and a friend of mine was having an outdoor party on a large property in the country so I decided to see if he would like me to test out the system. This was a perfect test as I needed to travel to the location and the party area was completely outdoors so sound wise it was a challenge.

Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol: Creating VST Presets!

Written by Jason

After testing the Akai Advance and having a miserable time with bugs and issues with the software and keyboard I fell in love with the Komplete software and hardware as my main keyboard but since I also own a number of other VST instruments I was rather disappointed to learn that I could not browse VST presets, only load the instrument.... That was until now!
