Thx!

Re: Bass Loops

These are in stock at my local guitar shop... http://www.backalleymusic.co.uk/content ... e_(inc_Bag).html Problem is, change too many variables, as a solo musician it becomes harder. I write most of my songs either on acoustic, or more likely in Mixcraft sitting back and being inspired by the rhyth...

Re: Bass Loops

Pitch changing has issues with tone/pitch variation during sustain. You seem to be a talented guitarist, I'm surprised no one has given the most common answer related to bass and bass recording... get a cheap bass . I think you'll be happier creating you own stuff than searching for the "right" loo...

Re: Clip Effects

To be honest, I usually setup a seperate track for parts of the vocal that you might double track or treat with different effects. This is really handy if you're going to use it in several places. It then works out simpler than automation which you may have to keep hiding/un-hiding. Just duplicate t...

Re: Bass Loops

Anyone got any tips for the new Omni Sampler with respect to bass sounds? perhaps combined with the XBass 4000L Bass Enhancer? I've no experience of the former... but whilst I've tried bass sounds on my midi keyboard, I wonder if the Omni sampler gives any sonic advantages? Is it really just pitch s...

Re: Bass Loops

Doubt this will help, BUT before i baught my bass i used my guitar to record the bass, and just used the "edit audio" thingy (when you doubleclick on your audiotrack) and pitched it down 6 semitones and just added EQ/reverb etc.. to get the sound i wanted. Might be worth a try? I've tried this... a...

Re: A repeatable and abbreviated approach to mastering

I believe that 'mastering' is the moment that one chooses to finish the project and that there may be many permutations of any given song that are just as desirable as the next, i.e., the perfect song doesn't exist... I believe this too. Up to a point Complete the mix, then "master it" in another t...

Re: A repeatable and abbreviated approach to mastering

Hey thanks, some good stuff there! Yes, I use "Span" and see what the peaks are, L/R balance, then reimport the flac or wav into mixcraft. But yeah, limiters, I really don't go crazy, but I just think multiband peak limiting makes sense (to my small brain anyway). And that's only *after* some gentle...

Re: Bass Loops

Thanks for replying! Well, I've built many of my own tracks with bass sounds and eg the bass devil VST and things, but I just find actual sample loops sound more authentic for my acoustic pop/rock stuff :-) although still open to suggestions! Mixcraft has some great ones which I've now kinda exhaust...

Bass Loops

Any top tips for bass loops? Other than Google (hit and miss, too many websites trying to sell stuff) or Kontakt (looks to complicated for ol' me).
thanks guys!

A repeatable and abbreviated approach to mastering

OK folks, be nice to me, I've not posted on here for a while, but between family stuff I've still been recording (a bit). So. This will be a contentious and debatable subject, and I see lots of posts on it. But when I came back to recording, I always try to open a previous mixcraft project and think...
