Re: Need some advice on looping pedals..

I really like the look of the Boss RC505 there.. I didn't realise you could get such a comprehensive machine, I could plug my keyboard and a mic into it and be set by the look of it!

Thank you Elf :-)

Need some advice on looping pedals..

Morning everyone, I have a lot of ideas going round my head about performing tracks live using my keys and a loop pedal and drum machine, some of the tracks I have sung on are DnB tracks and I think it might be a nice effect. I produce and release but haven't done anything like this live before so l...

Re: Recommendation for a good sounding record player pls!!

Thanks guys! The amp isn’t high end but I have had it 20 years now and always loved the sound.. it’s a Sony TA-FE230 - assume it’s moving magnet but have no idea, I think the other ones cost a bomb don’t they so think you’re right. I have seen a few project turntables on eBay for about £75/£80 secon...

Recommendation for a good sounding record player pls!!

Hi all! I have inherited a fantastic record collection.. I just need a decent sounding record turntable to play them on. I have a decent amp and great speakers.. I don’t want one of those all in one suitcase numbers as I want to hook it up properly, but I also don’t want to spend too hefty an amount...

Re: Mix for review and comment please :-)

Morning Everyone! Elf has re-mixed and mastered the track for me - it's been polished like a little gem! I am so happy with the results, nice big airy sound and he helped tighten up the beat too. The vocals sit much better and the reverb is much better.. Here it is: https://soundcloud.com/user-41043...

Re: Mix for review and comment please :-)

Hi Me again! I've been working on the track again and sorting the problems discussed, I also mixed in a lovely guitar part from Drew which I think works really well. This is the Draft 6 mix, unmastered... https://soundcloud.com/user-410433233-548354857/edm-track-draft-6/s-BYqG7hXNKYn?utm_source=cli...

Re: Mix for review and comment please :-)

Thanks guys! I am going to send this over to elf to mix and master as a birthday present to myself 😁 I think I have definitely come much further on the mix than the previous 3 and I will keep trying to get further with every mix I do! But I think it’s worth letting an experienced engineer finish the...

Re: Mix for review and comment please :-)

Thank you for the reverb tip of Elf!

All thanks to you lovely lot! I'm quite excited about this track now,...

Re: Mix for review and comment please :-)

One thing I'm noticing is that your vocal reverb is running in mono. It's also a tad loud, and could do with a sweeter setting - at the moment it sounds a bit metallic. Ooh really.. how do I change that? it's going through an FX track currently can that be either stereo or mono? Yes it's not quite ...

Re: New song for mix review

I'm not capable of commenting on the mix as I'm a learner myself and all these guys are great ^^^ I think it's a lovely song! I would agree that the intro is a bit too long, I really liked your middle section, I liked the beat - whether it fits with the piece as a whole I wasn't so sure on.. perhaps...

Re: Mix for review and comment please :-)

It really needs to be done every time you reduce the word length aka bit depth. There's a plugin in Cubase that does it - look under the mastering section of the plugin selection dialogue. Just insert it, set it to post fader, and set the bit depth to whatever you're exporting to. Ok will do, Thank...
