Minding Acoustica's Business

It would seems that DAWs are about to reach their zenith. Other than upgrades here and there I don't see what more anyone would want other than loops and effects and maybe some really good defaults for mixing and mastering that can analyze the music and create the "perfect" mix. Is it poss...

PZM / Boundary Microphones: Anyone Using Them?

I used to use a Crown PZM for snare live. I also recorded with it before digital recording. I really liked it. No it's not working. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/18/Pzm1.jpg/1200px-Pzm1.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boundary_microphone https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bound...

Re: Soundcloud?

Soundcloud is missing out on huge revenue. It is really good platform IMO. The engineering is very good. They have a HUGE audience but they are not actualizing even a tiny percentage of the revenue potential. Soundcloud is German owned company. Look how badly the Germans have screwed up their cars. ...

Re: Future of the daw

It will come down to needs, perceived needs and wants and how many bells and whistles DAW users think they want or need. Notice I didn't say composers or musicians. What I would like to see is improved virtual instruments and easier MIDI editing. I'd like to see a way to do changing meter and tempos...

Ear Buds For Mixing?

Since so many people listen with ear buds why not use them for mixing?

What about offering ear bud mixes and mixes for audiophiles?

Re: Mixcraft still the easiest learning curve!

Hi Greg, Here's what I'm talking about... Just for example, if I record a fresh, dry, raw sound clip with no effects, it comes through Logic or Reaper so hot that I can put the sound right inside my head, and can also pan it really hard too. With MC the sound seems to be in front of me no matter wh...

Re: Mixcraft still the easiest learning curve!

Plug-ins are very important as to how they treat those 0s and 1s. How they behave in the chain can make a difference. As I played with DAWs they began to feel more like a musical instrument. Mixcraft just feels right for me. I think that other real musicians would have the same reaction. My recordin...

Re: Microphone Survey

Sennheiser 835. Easily beats the over-hyped (but still good) SM58 IMO. No more boxiness :) Currently shopping for an LDC and ribbon. I've used a lot of 58's live. It seems no two are exactly alike. Some are hotter than others. In live settings they really punch out the vocals male or female. They g...

Re: Mixcraft still the easiest learning curve!

I would think that when it is all tracked and mixed there is no way to tell which DAW a piece of music was mixed on. I was just on Soundcloud listening to some of Eric's tracks and they are superb! https://soundcloud.com/ericvanlandingham I am assuming he used Mixcraft. I wish I could get that sound...

Music Revenue Quality and Sales

It looks like downloads are dying. https://www.riaa.com/u-s-sales-database/ Sales are up a bit in the US but downloads are dwindling. https://tse4.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.0nOLl-eAbXNQOYc4bD1GGwHaEo&pid=Api Mechanical and downloads are dying. Streaming pays the artists poorly. I was at a ballgame a...

Re: Soundcloud?

There's been a lot of chatter on other forums during recent weeks concerning the viability of Soundcloud. Even if this is all smoke, it is probably a good idea to diversify just to keep options open. I'm gradually going to start throwing duplicates up on YouTube even though at this point it doesn't...

Re: Time For A New PC and New Mixcraft: Unable to Diagnose and New Problems Keep Popping Up

Hi, The one log file you sent in showed you were using Wave mode, which is not the preferred way to go. It would be instructive to see a log file from when you tried WaveRT or ASIO. Greg Most of the time I've used Wave RT Latency isn't a problem because I can hear the instrument through the Beringe...
