Re: New Approach to mixing..feedback wanted..

Hi folks, Happy to hear some other objective input on this-- it's a learning experience for me, too. Thanks for the listening, Mick-- another set of objective ears is a great tool for us learning the mix thing. Robert, I gave this latest mix a listen on my monitor speakers instead of 'phones, and I ...

There are no stupid questions-- ask, and almost always, you'll get honest and clear advice. I, for one ap...

Re: New Approach to mixing..feedback wanted..

Hey Robert-- YEAH-- this sounds much more well balanced, and overall "brighter" than the first mix. Upping the guitar volume really helped, and I hear the guitar parts much more clearly now. Nice work, and, in my opinion, your mix system seems to be working well for you. :D I'd still like to hear so...

Re: New Approach to mixing..feedback wanted..

Hi Robert-- I'm no "mixmaster" by any stretch of imagination, still climbing that learning curve myself :lol: But, I know how easy it is to lose your objectivity after listening to a piece 1.3 million times, so-- my 2 cents worth. Overall, the mix sounds pretty good to me, although the left channel ...

Re: Back to the City - Folk-Soul-Fusion

Of course, I should have known it was Uilleann pipe, I'm just not used to it being played in this context! Great sound. I was a huge fan of Paddy Keenan and Bothy Band in the 70's. I've heard some stunning duets with fiddle and pipes, and it serves to remind me what a wonderful instrument it is. Kud...

Re: Back to the City - Folk-Soul-Fusion

I'm not sure how I'd categorize this either, so I thought "folk-jazz-fusion" was a good way to describe it. I like this piece! What is the instrument carrying the lead melody? Works well, with a nice solid bass line to anchor it. Thanks! Rick. :D

Hi Mark,
Thanks for the reply-- I'm sure lots of folks on these forums are wondering. I will try to send some words of encouragement to Tom. DUH!... I knew it was Tom, just showing off my porous memory in true O. F. style. Rick.

Hey O.F.C. members.. just wondering.....

Where the heck is "outteh" Dave? Hope all is well. I'm missing his always solid cover tunes, and sage advice on questions in the Mixcraft forum. Anybody heard? Rick.

Re: Piano roll editing of submix track...?

Thanks Mick--- exactly what I needed. A workaround, elegant in its simplicity! Sometimes I'm so hung up in the moment that I fail to back up and look at things logically :oops: This will be a great timesaver! Rick.

Piano roll editing of submix track...?

In Mixcraft 6, if I create a submix track of 3 virtual instruments recorded simultaneously, (in this case 3 synth pads), is there a way to do piano roll editing of the 3 tracks simultaneously? A brief experiment seems to indicate that each of the tracks must be edited separately, but I thought I'd c...

Re: Oiginal R&B Tune

GREAT tune, Tom... With the season changing rapidly here in New England, this somehow has a beautiful end-of-summer jazz feel to it. Love the melody and the instrumental work, nice subtle percussion! Many thanks for this one.. 8) 8) Rick.
