Re: Fixing drum timing

I see Melodyne essential is £85 and upgrade to assistant is £45 so that’s £130 ish... I might go for this since I don’t really like the flex stuff in logic. It will be significantly better after what I hear. And well discounted until the end of the year. Or am I wrong here? I’ll have a go at the de...

Re: Fixing drum timing

Well, if you can't do it right the first time, do it again...I'm always disppointed when trying to fix timing issues in the mix. It's like asking the chef to lay an egg. RIGHT HERE! You shouldn't be thinking about timing corrections at this point...not at ALL. But you didn't mention the circumstanc...

Re: Is the Ensoniq SQ80 an "S&S" Synth?

Well, you can call it whatever you like...doesn't really matter, But if you want to be technically correct and pummel another would-be synth snobs into accepting your undisputed authority in the never-ending battle to be king synth douche (There can only be ONE) Then the correct answer is: It's uniq...

Re: Focusrite clarett 2 pre usb vs Audient id 22

Don't understand why people in this thread are saying it makes no difference, but then again, I can tell from their posts that they aren't actual USERS of ID22's..Going from a 2i2 to an ID22 will knock you out, and not in a subjective way, you'll be like "YEAH! That SOUNDS BETTER" I can gu...

Re: Focusrite clarett 2 pre usb vs Audient id 22

Welcome to the forum. Unless you have a very good monitoring system and a good room to record in I doubt you'll be able to tell the difference between the 2i2 and the more 'professional' interfaces you mention. The Focusrite mic preamps are well up to snuff and capable of release quality recordings...

If I understand the question properly, then...LEARN TOGETHER 100% Here's a tip: Practice WHAT IT IS YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO DO, don't start separating the hands, your brain will start laying neural pathways that brand them as totally separate things, so later when you put them together, your brain will...

Re: How many years before Logic Pro will be only upgradable on Mojave?

Why do people feel the need to constantly upgrade? I can tell you that there are top-level professionals in L.A that STILL use Snow Leopard. If there is some game changer, like when "elastic audio" was introduced than fine, but how long has it been since a DAW added ANYTHING that was TRULY...

Re: What Is a Lie in Music?

A friend of mine is a professional classical music composer who hates new age music. Quite some time ago, I asked him what was wrong with new age music, pointing out that at least some of it is more interesting than something like pop or rap. For example, there are a lot of new age selections which...

Hmm, I have stood up for Audient in the past as I own a few of their interfaces and consider them to be the best I have ever owned, Conversely, I am not a dedicated follower of any brand.

Bro, you are wasting your time trying to get the gear to do your job for you. There is no EQ that will fix your issue, jacking all the bands on the A&H amount to just turning up the overall volume, its an illusion. This is your fix, believe me or not, that will not change a thing, it will remain...

Re: Struggling with enjoying using Logic X

Well, possible things like key commands are different from previous versions My key commands have largely stayed the same since the 90s, bar a few expansions along the way! But that's because I use my own set, not the default set. And yes, they do change from time to time, mostly to accommodate new...

Re: What is it with the lack of aftertouch?

It's pretty simple really......You are correct in assuming they have been trying to spec it out for years now.

Definitely get some flux, people will say you don't need it
