Re: 440 to 432

Resonant frequencies are the building blocks of matter. Many of these videos demonstrate this. If you want to record at 432 you could do a recording as usual at 440 then pitch shift the whole thing. Just a thought https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=wvJAgrUBF4w I was starting to head in that d...

Re: 440 to 432

Some rabbit trails can be be fun. I was thinking more about frequency and keys. Different keys have a different "feel" but keys are quite arbitrary whereas sound and frequency isn't. IMO keys can effect the "feel" of the music. It may have something to do with timbre of the instruments but it also m...

Re: 440 to 432

No, that difference would be 8hz. There are 100 cents to a semi-tone (half step) 200 cents in a whole tone (or whole step), 1200 cents in an octave, this is assuming we are talking the even tempered scale. The difference in hz between any two steps isn't the same as we go up or down the scale, so t...

Re: New Video

Because I'm and old fart, most of what I've listened to was on vinyl and then CDs. It was great music of the 60's - 90's with most of it being recorded on tape. It is interesting to me that the Beatle's Sergeant Peppers was recorded on 4 tracks. I think you will find this interesting. This is Serge...

Re: Vocal Recording Tricks

What are you guys doing with vocals? :?: I work with the vocalist to sing as in tune, and as in time as they are capable of. In terms of processing, the one technique that always delivers is high-passing to within an inch of its life. I have sworn I will never use auto tune or a harmonizer on a rec...

On this I used drum loops, a Fender J bass, virtual organ and sax, and Yamaha Strat style guitar for the rhythm part. The lead guitar part is the Fender J bass. The vocals are me growling. I've been doing that a lot lately. :lol:

Re: Maggot Dance

I gave it a like and I'm following you. It really captures the site of maggots crawling around in the rotting meat of a fast food hamburger under the floor mat of a work truck.

Re: 440 to 432

When I duplicate vocal tracks I change the pitch using "semitones" flat or sharp and I barely notice a change which is what I want. I think in Indian music, on the sitar there are notes between B and C, C# and D etc... The cent is a logarithmic unit of measure used for musical intervals. Twelve-tone...

440 to 432

A guy I am working with suggested that I record in 432 instead of 440. I have used pitch adjustment in semitones to fatten up the vocals but I think that the what Mixcraft is calling semitones are actually cents. My understand is that semitones are the intervals in used in Indian music. How can I go...

Re: Vocal Recording Tricks

Sometimes I duplicate vocal tracks and I will move one slightly forward a few milliseconds and the other back. I also to slight pitch shifts on the tracks with one slightly sharp and the other slightly flat. aka doubling. One way to do it anyway; most would say just record the same thing twice and ...

Re: New Video

I am self taught, I just know what I feel and during the last couple of years I've acquired lots of Vsts/Vstis and spent most of my time learning how to use things appropriately. Unfortunately it sometimes takes years of thought to figure out the endless sweeps of processes to achieve the right soun...

That's often my approach. Sadly, my singing is not what it once was. I need to sing more and get my chops back.

Classic Rocker: Using a Mixcraft Loop

I don't think I could not have played a lead this good and appropriate for the song. Stroke of luck! :lol:

https://soundcloud.com/user-301330200/h ... soul-taker

Originally the loop was at 85 BPM and in the key of E. Now it's a 120 BPM an in A.
