Re: Converter for PC?

Hi there as you've probably already guessed asking which is 'best' is probably not as simple as you thought. In reality most modern converters will do a decent job and you are unlikely to find that at the sort of budget you are considering (Lynx Aurora's are expensive things) they cause you any noti...

Re: How to record a heartbeat?

I had a requirement for this exact same sound last month. A quick google search for ‘free heartbeat sample’ yielded many choices. Not as fun as making your own I agree but took like 5 mins and got the job done…

Re: My First Music

Hi There, just had a quick listen, here's my thoughts. The mix isn't really happening for me, the beats aren't loud enough and its really congested in the high mids - there's too many similar sounds going on up there Not really feeling the range of sounds/sound effects used, lots of 'different' soun...

Re: Top-Down Mixing with Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain - Bad Habit?

Thanks for the replies. On this: Putting a reverb plugin on a master bus....hhmmm I've never heard of anyone doing this. I sometimes add a very small amount of reverb as a wash/glue if the track consists of only vocals and acoustic guitar or piano. Ah, well that's perfectly acceptable - after all, ...

Re: Top-Down Mixing with Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain - Bad Habit?

Mixing into a 'master bus' or '2 bus' compressor (usually and SSL style VCA type) is very common - usually for 'glue' or 'punch' purposes, as is adding some subtle EQ and saturation - i.e. an Overstayer or SSL Fusion type product. Putting a reverb plugin on a master bus....hhmmm I've never heard of ...

Re: DIY Vocal Recording Setup Help Please.

Hi mate, that setup to me looks better to me, I would try and centralise that ceiling trap above the mic rather than off to one side. The recording sounds more open to me but tbh i'm finding it difficult to compare with the 1st vocal in a mix and 2nd not, and with autotune on both and both at differ...

Re: DIY Vocal Recording Setup Help Please.

....have just listened to your track... So you are going for the classic heavily corrected Autotune effect, at which point you have moved quite a long way away from a 'natural' sounding vocal which I thought you were trying to preserve, therefore I'd have absolutely no problem in any form of EQ or p...

Re: DIY Vocal Recording Setup Help Please.

Hi there, not sure Mike has read your post properly or is unfamiliar with the GIK product line but the 244 GIK panels absorb down past 100hz so are perfectly good bass traps so i'm not sure that's your issue. Having looked at your photo's My observations/questions are as follows 1. Is that acoustic ...

Re: Who's the old style producer who recorded one note at a time and had a 'special box' that he'd use for his productio

Mutt Lange is said to have recorded distorted guitars one note at a time for Def Leppard's Hysteria -- is that what you had in mind? There's a documentary kicking around about this somewhere, apparently they did it for one specific song (which could have been Hysteria) rather than the whole album, ...

Re: John Frusciante Homestudio

Well…. He says he uses the internal sequencing of the MC202’s and the 303’s so at a guess he will bring the outputs from those, the drum machines and synths into the desk - looks like some sort of Neve to me, probably eq’ing and conditioning there, and then into the computer in whatever qty of separ...

Re: UAD goes Native (*not* Apple silicon)

I guess for me I have 2 major questions. 1. While I appreciate that I ‘should’ get a native version of the UAD plug-ins that I own, assuming ALL are ported (still remember Nigel 😂) is that going to be a forever license, or will there be some update fee’s or other charging method in the future, and… ...
