Re: Alternatives to Soundcloud?

I downgraded my account for now and thre is no music - I think because it doesn't support FLAC unless it's premium? Anyway, in case anyone is looking that's why you see nothing.

Re: Alternatives to Soundcloud?

Ah - the Temptations medley! Recorded on a cassette recorder with its built in microphone in 1970! My Rock and Soul band as a senior in high school - I used some filters etc from Mixcraft to get it it somewhat listenable. Probably will get around to trying to improve more someday I only preserved a ...

Re: Alternatives to Soundcloud?

BTW - I don't sing in any of the song ; the vocals are from JAMKazam (where you can buy songs by cover bands for $3 and you get individual MP3 tracks of each instrument and vocals; but all the instruments are mine one way or another (playing, "entering" in the piano roll, drum pads (EZDrummer) or cl...

Re: Alternatives to Soundcloud?

Well, here it is -
https://hearthis.at/billw

Let me know if you can access it; I guess the default bitrate for playing is very low and I'd have to reset each to make it higher; they are flac files but they seem to play

The site seems buggy though - it stops playing sometimes for no reason.

Re: Alternatives to Soundcloud?

Hi trevlyns - I joined hearthis premium (I may be sorry - I didn't check it out at all and I have a follower already which seems odd - and he/she downloaded some of my music I had it set that you had to follow me to download but I didn't 'realize anyone could follow me without an invitation They are...

Re: Alternatives to Soundcloud?

The idea of a shared drive is easiest - but it requires a download or a link to an app to even sample the song. The advantage of soundcloud of course is the player is right there. I suppose the other suggestions have the same thing? (And why, when you mention Bandcamp, do I find myself saying "this ...

Alternatives to Soundcloud?

I finally got around to posting my music to Soundcloud (actually I posted one a couple years ago) so that friends and family could listen at their convenience (if they so desired). All my music is cover versions - 60s / 70s classic rock mainly. Three of my songs were rejected for copyright reasons. ...

Re: So confused by Kontakt player...

Hi Greg - your instructions on how to run multiple horns on one track may well be the solution; but more important, I'm glad to know I don't need to run multiple instances of Kontakt for multiple horns; I figured there was a way but I couldn't find it from internet searches.

Thanks much!

So confused by Kontakt player...

I have a song I'm working on with several horns - I use Chris Hein Horns Compact; I can't say I know much on how to get dynamics out of it but it has always worked fine before But the songs I've used it for only had 3 or 4 horns in it; this one has 6 and that may be my issue I seem to have to load a...

Re: Send track confusion

Yes, Mark - that's it. Just in the sections where the horns do the loud, to soft to loud again dynamic. I have it perfect and since it's in four places it would have been easier to copy/paste the automation. I did it brute force but I do want to learn how to do it. Don't spoil me BTW! Let me figure ...

Re: Send track confusion

OK - thanks again Mark and everyone! Got it all to work great. I used the send even though putting it on the submix would work as well in this case. One thing I didn't realize is the "wetness" of the reverb was set rather low in the plugin so I kicked it up. I'm getting better - next step is to lear...

Re: Send track confusion

Did that help? Yep it helped convince me this is way more complicated than I thought :) Ok, so I'm in effect thinking of a send track as a submix. I think that's the actual disconnect I have Creating a submix fixes the "single volume automation" desire, not the send The send eliminates the need for ...

Send track confusion

I'm trying to get smarter as I find time for this hobby. So for the first time I'm using a send track (Don't laugh) I have a four piece horn section (using Chris Hein Horns via Kontakt - that maybe is pertinent?) And I want some reverb on all so I inserted a send track, put on a reverb ;lug in, and ...

Re: Problem mixing down with DB-33 hammond emulator

Hi Greg -
I knew that! But forgot.

I had it set right in MX8 but forgot this bit of wisdom when I upgraded to MX9. So I set it (48000 for both now) and it's great.

Thanks much!
