First recording with my OWN gear

https://soundcloud.com/denote-the-apex/ginny-mcgee-rough Here it is guys. I went to CRAS about 8 years ago. Got busy working a dead end job and making a family. This is the first thing I've recorded with own gear in my own space. Its not me, just a friend who like to write silly songs. I would love ...

I think its very interesting that music in general has gotten more distorted with digital recording. We think a little bit of noise on everything sounds good, cause that is what everything used to sound like. In 1972 no one said "this record sounds too clean" But that did happen in the 90's and now ...

What version of windows are you using? There is a reason that motherboard manufactures are not putting firewire on new boards intended for use with windows 7. I'm not sure what the deal is, but all of the audio interface manufactures recommend usb or pci pci-x for windows 7 work.

Hugh Laurie "let them talk"

So did anyone else watch this show this weekend on PBS? It was pretty interesting to me, not knowing jack about this music. It was very well executed early jazz. But on top of that it was worth it just for the microphone porn. Tons of vintage ribbon mics on everything, even dangerously close to some...

I'm saying I agree with Mr. Nick Sevilla, that the human brain is capable of recognizing how distorted something is. And with a large enough sample size it sorta is objective data, right?

Have people done double blind studies to try to figure out this sort of thing. That is if music has become more distorted or the years. Just having people listen to music and answer some multiple choice questions about it being negative, positive, loud, what have you. Interviews with 1000 music teac...

echo layla 3g, reaper and outputs

I just got this echo layla and the outputs are giving me some trouble. It won't let me use regular computer sounds (itunes, video games) on the same outputs as reaper. I'm not sure if Its reaper causing this or if its the Layla or if its a limitation of windows 7 or what but its very annoying to a h...

Have any of you guys looked into mods for Reaper. It seems to have a decent community for modders. There are mod packs recommended by the author and in his download pages. It seems like it might be easier to make a mod of reaper that is just the mix window. It still wouldn't be as simple as the idea...

I have misplaced my expensive molded "musicians" ear plugs, and that makes me sad. This thread is encouraging me get tested again and get those plugs once again.

Last time I got checked it looked like this.
