    2009, Big % Increase & GraphicRiver Beta InvitesWriteforus
    Looking back on last year, Envato had a pretty big 2008 by any measure. We jumped from 4 sites to 13, a million monthly visitors to 5 million, and while our team began the year numbering 12, we ended it totalling 55 talented reviewers, editors, managers, developers, writers and support staff. With such a crazy year in the rearview mirror, it is with no small excitement that I can say that 2009 is going to make 2008 pale in comparison. And today I'm here to make a huge announcement for all the authors of our marketplaces, give beta invites for a major new site, and give sneak previews for some of our Envato plans!Read More…

    Upload Your Recording for Community Workshopping & FeedbackThumb
    One of the oldest and most important tools that a producer has at their disposal is objective feedback. After tweaking a mix for hours and hearing a song so many times that you're practically deaf to it, a fresh set of ears to give advice can be invaluable. We've built a strong community at AUDIOTUTS made up of both audio rookies and veterans, an audience full of fresh ears with bucketloads of knowledge and experience. So we'd like to allow you to post your mixes for workshopping and give you the chance to help others as we've helped you.Read More…

    A Detailed Look at the 960 CSS Framework200x200
    CSS frameworks are bloated. CSS frameworks are for people who don't know how to code. CSS is too simple to implement a framework. If you've ever read a tutorial on a CSS framework, I can guarantee that many comments mimic the previous statements. My guess is that the majority of these comments are stemmed from slight ignorance. Once you take the opportunity to spend some time with 960, you'll be amazed at how much time can potentially be saved when developing your web applications. At the very least, take ten minutes to review the framework. You can always press the delete key...though I doubt you will! Read More…

    How to Set Music to Film Using Markers & Timewarp in Cubase 4Thumb
    If you fancy having a go at composing music to film, one of the first obstacles you will encounter is how to synchronize the music to the action in the film. Whether you are using real or virtual instruments, you are going to have to make the music follow the picture, and if you are working to a brief they may specify exactly where they want sections of music to start and finish. In this tutorial I’m going to look at how we can import such a film into Cubase 4 and compose some music for it. I’ve put together a short nature sequence with butterflies and a spider (this is not going to win any Oscars, but it will suffice to practice with!) and I’ve written an imaginary brief from a producer specifying what should happen at certain timecode points in the film.Read More…
