I know you're feeling all smart and stuff hahaha. nah. i copied my idea from the SPL de-esser unit. de-wind away! You could have just snipped up the original track and turned down the hard parts this is true, IF i hadn't also faded in and out of he snipped bits. without the fades there would have b...

I was mostly being silly, and a little nostalgic. I miss the CEP2 days. to be fair, there ARE nice things about Audition: a grid is nice... also, to be totally honest, it's the same BASIC program, so you'd be able to transition really easily... and, i know it sounds crazy, because 0's and 1's are 0'...

I'm old and cheap and and lazy sorta Luddite-ish, so I am still using CEP 2.1 what has settings for "noise-shaping"; I use the "44.1" setting. It also allows you to choose number of bits, and I just use "1", what I find works well for me because I tend to gate and de-noise and silence everything th...

I don't think there's too much point in "mastering" for the stream-player . No, no! I agree. Maybe I misspoke. My point being that, with a view in mind for my previous positive experience, if I WERE working with a mastering engineer for this, I'd upload the 16/44.1 files he sent me back after he wo...

8) FWIW, I've tried a few DAWS, and like Reaper second best, which is why I'm still using Cool Edit Pro 2.1 i wish I had never upgraded to stupid Adobe Audition. I ended up switching to Cubase (5...which I still use) due to Audition. I FUCKING LOVED COOL EDIT PRO 2. Cool Edit Pro 2 and my Aardvark ...

i would employ the following before resorting to auto-tune..which i dont even have. 1. get him to do it again. I record a vocalist who usually does one or two songs, really well, a day. I've worked with him multiple times, and we've mutually found this to be the best way to do it. I just realized th...

That's a pretty brilliant (though tedious I'm sure) method. I'll keep that tucked away for use if needed someday. It was tedious. It really made me realize that if I had just spent 20 more minutes and maybe picked a different mic / tape a pencil over the diaphragm / SOMETHING, to nip the problem BE...

Uploading to bandcamp - dithering? file format?

Last year, I recorded and mixed two records. both were recorded in the same space. both were mixed within a month or two of one another. both were recorded and mixed 32bit / 48000. both were mastered by the same guy (Carl Saff). For both, Carl sent me back 24/48 and 16/44.1 files. But, for one of th...

AMP HELP - Wurlitzer EP / Guitar - do i ask the impossible?

hey all! I wonder if any of you can help point me in a good direction. I just scored a Wurlitzer 200, and I love it! That warm bark is just amazing. I'd like to get an amp for it...and to make matters more complicated, I'd also like to use the same amp as a guitar amp. (I only have an old silvertone...

in case anyone gives a shit, after trying a few different things, here's the approach that i ended up using. 1. take the offending track. 2. duplicate it. 3. take the duplicate, and go through and just literally razor slice around all the hard sounds. for example: "the labirynth beckons" gets sliced...

Can you tell me just a little more about your construction? What lumber size did you use? 1"x10"? Did you build it just a bit large to hold a full size 2'x4' piece of insulation or did you trim that down to use your lumber a bit more efficiently? the outer frame pieces were 1x10. the back was, i be...

So last year I built these gobo / baffle things (which were totally just me sort of spit-balling something together). these were 10" deep, with a closed back, an air gap MDF wall, insulation, fabric cover. http://messageboard.tapeop.com/viewtopic.php?p=656922&highlight=#656922 I just tracked some dr...
