I am pleased to announce V.C.A (Voice Command Assistant)profile for ‘VoiceAttack’ to use alongside ‘Cubase’ by Steinberg is now available to buy. Steinberg were kind enough to allow me to give reference to Cubase in the description and the awesome developer of ‘VoiceAttack’has given the green light. I have spent countless hours programming in and testing over 321 commands, yes I went crazy over the top, I just kept adding but at some point I had to stop. To purchase simply click the shopping cart above to be taken to my DLG store, all sales are handled by PayPal. You can download the PDF manual for a full list of available spoken commands or watch the brief overview video on this page.There is nothing worse while starting out trying to remember all the keyboard short-cuts for your DAW that may interfere with your creativity and that feeling of being totally lost. V.C.A can help with all that but on the other hand it is very important to learn keyboard short-cuts in your own time simply because not all studios will be using V.C.A and knowing short-cuts will help you look professional in front of your friends and clients.Many years ago I had to use another studio to produce my music as I could not afford the equipment involved, I remember the studio was owned by a wheelchair bound music engineer John, he suffered with a muscle wasting disease and thinking back something like V.C.A would have been perfect for him and I am sure right now as I type this short story there is someone in a similar situation, I really do hope V.C.A can help and assist you in the studio no matter your circumstance, everyone deserves to make music…
Hello and welcome to my humble Phat Monkey homepage hailing from Wales in the United Kingdom. I dabble with music production, mixing, basic mastering, a sprinkle of ghost writing and other boomage as well as professional photo editing. In the distant past I have been involved on the Dj side of things and had a slight resurrection a couple of years ago when I released the chart topping annual mix series ‘Ibiza Beach Bar Grooves’which was made available via Beatport, volume one reached chart position 8 followed by volume 2 at chart position 4!! Unfortunately as of December 2017 Beatport no longer support DJ mixes. I recently in 2019 created a profile called V.C.A for ‘VoiceAttack’ which allows users to use spoken words boasting over 321 commands for Cubase by Steinberg speeding user work-flow by up to 20% or more. Cubase is a professional digital audio workstation by Steinberg allowing users to create awesome music, go check Cubaseout today! On the flip side you can expect new music from me in the near future under my moniker ‘Phat Monkey’ which will most likely be of the House genre. I do not like being held down by any one specific genre of music but I am trying to focus on a clear direction for the ‘Phat Monkey’ moniker. Growing up with such a diverse musical talent around me I developed a taste and respect for all genres of awesome music. If you have any questions feel free to ask me, I am nobody special, just a normal humble approachable laid back guy on a journey through life same as you. All that is left for me to say now is peace love and respect, may your journey lead you to your chosen destination xXx
