Re: Anyone ever used a Nail Bar?

In the classical guitar world (in which I am now largely a bystander) there are some players who go the acryllic nails route. Almost all of the players I've come across who do this do their own and spend a huge amount of time on it. They mostly say the skills of a cosmetic nail technician are somewh...

Re: wav backing tracks

You could do it all in FL I guess, or you could use a basic "mastering" type software such Steinberg's Wavelab Elements which has good tools not only for correcting any level or EQ imbalances between tracks but also for compiling an error free CD with track titles, defined start gaps, spac...

Re: Volume pedals before a DI, and recording expression data from Helix

You need to open Command Centre in HX Edit, select the expression pedal and set command to MIDI CC in the pull down menue. The pedal should still work as a volume pedal in Helix and transmit MIDI. I've just set up a patch this way using the built in expression on a Helix Floor. Thanks for the reply...

Re: Volume pedals before a DI, and recording expression data from Helix

Thanks Hugh, I couldn't see any problem with the pedal in front of the DI as it is basically just doing the same job as a volume pot on the instrument, but then I got to overthinking it! I'll keep tinkering with the EXP pedal issue. It's a separate dedicated exp pedal and works fine on the Helix uni...

Volume pedals before a DI, and recording expression data from Helix

Nowadays I usually record guitars with a split so I can have both the amp signal and a dry one for any re-amping. The "amp" is often a Line 6 Helix Rack and the reamping is Helix Native, although I do have real amps, mics etc. if I want to go that route. With a console steel I'm using a DI...

Re: Cubase 12 is out

It doesn't hurt to be cautious, but I've never had to regret trying a new version out. Don't read too much into the forum. It won't be full of people saying "everything worked fine here", and it won't be overburdened by intellectual discussion. ;) I'm lucky, 11 still working fine for me a...

Re: Question for the EZ Drummer 2 users

I use Superior rather than EZ, and don't have that specific expansion either, but I do have quite a few other SDX and EZX expansions. The format is much the same throughout the Toontrack EZ/SD line. The expansions contain kits appropriate to their genre with corresponding mic configurations, recorde...

Re: Steinberg - ET Phone Home

At least today's new news from Steinberg is better than last month's news - To my mind at least. I'd say a one-off activtion is better than continualy having to re-apply for a 30 day pass, and 3 machines is better than 2. Though I must say I've never had a problem with the Steinberg dongle and worry...

Re: Spectralayers SL8 + iZotope RX9

Although I'm using RX more and more, I still like having the option of an alternative (Audition 3 in my case) as I find some processes work better in Audition while others are better in RX. That's kind of where I am just now- I can do most of what I want with RX7 but wonder if maybe there are a few...

Spectralayers SL8 + iZotope RX9

I've been using RX7 Standard for a couple of years. Mainly for cleanng up random hums, buzzes, clicks bumps and nasty string squeaks on guitar tracks. Also for bits of restoring older recordings + using the rebalance tool for, err, rebalancing, + occasional stripping out of a vocal etc. This being t...

Re: Project timer plugin?

I haven't used it either, but I'm a huge fan of HOFA's BlindTest (freeware version) for hearing the difference between up to three plug-ins. I've abandoned a few of my plug-ins as a result! MartinEQ Thanks, I wasn't aware of any of the HOFA stuff until I landed on their website yesterday, but I did...
