Re: Butterflies (look out)

Impeccable timing and singing. Well recorded song. Proof that you don't need an elaborate setup and tons of sounds, only the talent which you have.

Re: Microphone Survey

There are several reasons why it might not be working. That Presonus interface has the combination neutrik connectors on it so you should be able to plug in say a guitar using a 1/4" plug if you have one to see if you're getting audio.If you are look no further. It's either a cord or mic issue. To s...

Re: Orchestral VSTs

Good luck with finding a solution that works for you well. When running any sound library it's a good idea to make sure the minimum software system requirements are met. Libraries impact resources probably more than anything else and will bring some systems to their knees. If only using one hard dri...

Beyond The Veil

Composed entirely in Mixcraft. 3rd party plugins and Kontakt libraries were used.Flute is Mixcraft flute. Bouzouki was played and I can tell I need to work in timing/imaging here.

Re: Orchestral VSTs

Garritan pocket orchestra is included in Dimension Pro a software rompler that was for sale at 99.00 from Cakewalk. The Garritan pocket orchestra is basically the same thing you are looking at buying for 149.00 https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/ca ... ension-pro With Dimension Pro you get not onl...

Re: Orchestral VSTs

I can certainly understand your sentiments on NI. You aren't alone in feeling like that. When I said NI was king I didn't mean that everyone thinks they are wonderful. Not everyone likes the king :shock: They are the undisputed leader in sample library players in terms of popularity. I mean, go to a...

Re: Orchestral VSTs

Just a couple more things I'll throw out there for anyone who is looking at the options available. It's a actually difficult to find Kontakt for sale on the NI website.If you poke around a bit you'll evetually find it. Any reason you didn't include the link here? (And yes their web site sucks badly...

Re: USB Interface Recommendations

Just a quick FYI. The Behringer ADA8200 can work with the 18i8 for expansion of channels.. About half the cost of similar Focusrite gear.

No TOSLINK on the Behringer UMC404HD

Re: Orchestral VSTs

@Mark Bliss, Great suggestions. I believe trying the free version is the way to go initially to see how a person likes working in it. Kontakt is typical German music software. Small graphics with lots of hidden stuff lol. Works really well though. Some of the things a person needs to learn are the b...

Re: Incorrect BPM after importing post mastered MP3

Tag data is added to mp3 files which makes them slightly longer. This is especially noticed in mixed track arrangement including both .wav and mp3. In my experience mixing to mp3 actually uses more cpu cycles. This is because the cpu is not only mixing down the audio, it's also compressing to mp3 at...

Re: What levels are YOU mixing down to for mastering???

Yeah, I'm kinda at the same fork in the road. I scanned over 950 plugins. I had no idea I had that many. Lot's of redundancy. I still like to look and occasionally buy. I really like that Fabfilter MB Compressor. If I'm honest with myself I don't need it. I have others that will work probably for me...
