Re: The End of Soundcloud?

The operating costs for a site as large as Soundcloud have to be staggering. I would have no idea where to begin with a guess. That being said, I believe Soundcloud has had difficulty monetizing their traffic. Since the platform used to be completely free (from what I can remember), converting exis...

Song About Playing In Bands

I played in a lot of bands. Most were cover bands. Some bands were a lot of fun but often there were some difficult members who drank and drugged. Some had insatiable egos. Some times there were band members wives who caused problems. https://soundcloud.com/user-316831637/selfish-people-mix-b This s...

Re: Jane Why Did You Treat Me Like That?

Guitar reminds me of early tracks by the Stranglers. I'm not sure about the track length, for the genre I usually think of 2 and a half minutes or less, but maybe you think of it differently. 8) When I used to listen to songs that I liked I always wanted them to last longer especially when the band...

Jane Why Did You Treat Me Like That?

https://soundcloud.com/user-316831637/jane-mix-b-wav Jane has a strong hook. I wrote it many moons ago. It was inspired by a broken heart. :( Drums are a mix of MIDI and Mixcraft loops. Guitar is a Strat style Yamaha with a humbucker in the bridge position. Amp is a simulator. Bass is a Fender Jazz...

Re: Vocal Recording Tricks

I'm a purist snob and that's why I won't use a harmonizer or auto tune. :lol: I think harmonizers sound fake and I like the nuances of another voice. Everything about recording audio is fake. You're kidding yourself if think otherwise. I would use a harmonizer on single note instruments live and ma...

Re: I finally released my album...

Congrats! I've been very prolific in producing music and I owe a lot of it to Mixcraft. Other DAWs had me very discouraged but Mixcraft with its analog feel and the great tutorials made things a lot easier. I found that I was not the only person intimidates by the difficulty of some of the other DAW...

Re: Easy question 4 u experts re reverb

How do I get a mono sound to reverberate in stereo? I was just trying this with Acoustica Reverb (even had "stereo width" up) and Classic Reverb and I'm not getting a stereo reverb effect. I know I've gotten mono sounds to have stereo effects before (I think I did it with the chorus and w...

Re: Future of the daw

Unfortunately I think in the future DAW’s will cater more to non musician type users rather than musicians who can actually play real instruments... leading to more computerized sounds. :( Yep. But it could be argued that the creators of today who have no idea what a note or a chord is maybe in som...

Mixing For Ear Buds and Speakers

Should we be mixing for ear buds with ear buds? This is a tough one because there are so many ear buds out there from cheap ones that sound awful the moderately priced one that sound good an high priced ones that sound like the moderately priced ones.

Your thoughts?

Re: Future of the daw

For me and the types of music I compose reliability and ease of use are paramount. When you consider that a lot of great sounding music was recorded on 2 and 4 tracks, a lot goes to the compositions, the talent of the players and the engineers. Composing with midi is important to me. Having good vir...
