Re: What a difference!

Yep! I have them at ear level, equilateral triangle and all that. Gotta say they are intimidating, it is soooo different from what I'm used to that it's kinda scary. The headphones are like fool's gold, they tickle your ears and make everything seem easy and obvious, not so with the monitors! Just n...

How do you dual?

Good morning,

Well I shelled out a whopping $20 for a matching 22" monitor for my Lenovo AIO (and $40 for the displayport cable grrrr) for some dual screen action.

How do you configure your windows? A giant timeline? Separate mixer?

Re: Drum sounds

Good morning, You might consider pressing ALT-L and creating additional lanes to record your toms and cymbals to separate clips in case you want to change instruments later on. They will still play together of course. What do you mean by wanting more heft? If you compress them with the fastest attac...

Re: Bitrate dilemma

Hi, Make sure to go to the driver for your interface and make the settings right there first, as Mixcraft takes its cues on what options to provide you based on your driver. For instance, if I only have 44.1k/16 bit selected in my Line 6 TonePort driver, that's all that shows up in Mixcraft. If I ch...

Re: What a difference!

Morning, Yeah, I'm starting with the cheap ones, LOL. When I was in high school in the early 90's we had the exact same monitors and amp in the electronic music studio. It's just amazing what you can't hear with the headphones, especially the lows, and (ironically) the stereo image. Every mix sounds...

What a difference!

Hi all, So for all of these years I've been mixing with a cheap pair of Samson SR450 phones, and I just picked up some SR-850s last week, but tonight I picked up my first set of monitors (Alesis Monitor One) and holy cow, no wonder my mixes always sounded awful: I couldn't hear a darn thing! Night a...

Re: Reference Tracks

Hi,

A lot of guys will record or otherwise import the tracks into their DAW, so I was wondering if modifying or re recording a track from its original format is a no no.

Reference Tracks

Good morning!

Just curious if anyone has thoughts on the legality of using reference tracks? Is this something that is tacitly accepted in the recording industry?

Best,

Re: Cannot delete last track

If you want to delete the last track, just toggle on the master track and boom! Bob's your uncle.

Re: Audio Control Panel + Effects

Hi, +1 on Mark's suggestion about automation. I've gotten away from track effects lately, and have been doing a lot of sends instead, which is a great way to do what you're talking about. Instead of drawing an envelope on a clip you're drawing it on the track! Then again, doing a lot of sends will a...

Re: New Video: Solution for Chord Generators and Arpeggiators

You're both very welcome. The last 24 hours had been spent racking my brain trying to do the same thing using Rewire with moderate success (except when it backfired terribly), but finally arrived at the simpler solution shown in the video sometime early this morning. In fact, that's why my voice sou...
