Re: New PC in the UK

Bear in mind that if you're not into playing games, you won't require fancy expensive graphics cards for a music production computer.

Free drumkit VSTi

Just to let people know, because we all like decent free stuff, that a free version of the Jamstix drum kit software is available for download. https://www.rayzoon.com/?SRC=GJS3SITE&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7-37562o4gIVEVgVCB0Q9go-EAEYASAAEgI8nvD_BwE#free_version I found it a bit fiddly figuring out ho...

Re: Making samples

Okay, thanks, I've got it.

Unfortunately, the manual doesn't really explain the 'Use Selection' feature sufficiently. After absorbing the advice and cross-referencing the manual, I was completely bewildered for about five minutes before figuring it out.

Re: Making samples

There is no tail left outstanding. I cut the clip at 1.25 beats and also fade it off at the end with the volume envelope. I'm wondering if I'm experiencing a Mixcraft minimum size of mixed-down file, because I imported a very short snare sample file (1.13 beats) and tried saving that to a .wav file,...

Making samples

I'm attempting to make some custom samples of snare drums. However, I'm finding that the .wav file I'm saving is unnecessarily long. With Mixcraft set at 120bpm, the original edit makes the clip last for 1.25 beats, but I'm finding that after I load the mixed-down .wav file back into Mixcraft, the l...

Omni Sampler

I've been using the Omni-Sampler to put together a drum kit. However, I noticed that the tail of the crash cymbals was not sustaining as long as the sample. I then realised that Omni-Sampler is only playing the sample for a short period before fading it off. Release is at full, yet it will not accom...

Re: Recommendations for a good set of headphones for mixing?

But I recommend mixing with studio monitors rather than headphones. If you do a mix with studio monitors, it can be pretty well guaranteed that you'll find something amiss when listening to the result through good headphones, particularly with regard to detail, and when switching between stereo and...

Re: Manage Plug-ins question

I had the same thing happen to me around the end of last December and reported it in this forum. One day I opened a project and found that my 'Collections' had vanished. I've still not got round to rebuilding it all. ...and I had some questions and comments for you back then. So I noticed when I lo...

Re: MT Power Drums 2

I've now found a free sample player, Sitala, with 16 outs, so I'll be giving that a go later.

Vocal Doubler

I just came across this, if anyone's interested. It's a free vocal doubler plugin from Izotope. I've not tried it so don't know how good it is, but I've included links below to some demonstration videos. https://www.izotope.com/en/products/mix/vocal-doubler.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOYW2...

Re: MT Power Drums 2

Close-miked samples tend to sound like pathetic little clicks, whereas it's the 'Room' or ambient sound that gives the usable results. Doing the drums through a multi-out sample player such as Omni-Player using more natural sounds, such as those from the Acoustica drumkits, is not only far simpler, ...

Re: MT Power Drums 2

Live performance drum kits are close mic’ed with the exception of the overhead mic’s. :wink: That depends on the size of building where the performance is being held. I remember reading about a famous drummer -I don't recall who exactly - but when the engineers surrounded his drumkit with close mic...

Re: MT Power Drums 2

I'm curious. Why do you have to use Omni Sampler??? Why can you not just add the effects straight to the Acoustica drums etc.??? I ask the above because I really don't know and I've seen this same thing being mentioned before but I've never understood why or what Omni Sampler is about. It wouldn't ...
