The other 1/2 comes from the guitar feeding back in front of it.((SYNERGY BABY!)) For sure, the most glaring failure of something like a Pod. I've managed that "synergy" in front of a partially open iso-booth door (containing a Marshall stack) when working in big studios. I'm hoping that I might be...

I strongly considered the DIY route, mainly to design one that better fit my specs (more sound-proof/removable port/rear mic). I just don't have the time. I have seen where people using the Randall replace the interior foam with Auralex for a reportedly much better sound.

ProTools will definitely give you a lot more options on where you're going to work.

I don't know about pre-amp quality, but for all-in-one, M-Audio gives you a mixer and 8 mic inputs+ with the Project Mix (ProTools M-Powered compatible):

Anyone using a guitar "isolation" cabinet?

Randal Isolation 12C and the Demeter Silent Cab are the only two that I'm aware of.

I'm about to pull the trigger on the former but it's a big piece of gear and gonna be a bitch to get rid of if it doesn't sound good.

I agree with everyone here that you did an excellent job recording and mixing those tracks, especially considering the setup that you described. However I also agree that, from a personal point of view, "Dental Records" could use more oomph. Tasteful compression might work. From strictly personal ta...

What do I charge for drum programming?

I've just completed programming a bunch of drum parts and loops to supliment some real drums on one song for a major release for a friend of mine. It will probably be one of the singles. I've only ever played on my own releases so what do I charge? Scale? I'm not even sure what it would be for one t...

So at that point will you be able to just pay for one year of WUP and get upgraded?

They give you a bit of a discount for renewing before it runs out. I guess that's what's got me considering it.

To WUP or not to WUP? That is the question...

I bought a Native Diamond bundle one year ago and so I'm up for deciding whether to fork up for the big extortion. I did get a few free plugs thrown into the mix because I had WUP (the Tune Lite and their EQ emulator - although I really think that I should have gotten the Noise Reduction plug too!) ...

Coming at it from another angle. I seem to remember seeing somewhere, a DAW (or plugin) that allowed you to use the waveform graphic of an audio region to generate automation breakpoints. Does this ring any bells with anybody or was I dreaming (again)?

Need a sidechainable multiband compressor

I really need an RTAS or VST plug that will allow me to duck the upper-mids of a track from a sidechain. The use is to allow a voice-over to cut through music tracks. It should be totally transparent when there's no key signal. I've been using sidechain compression to do this, with some automated EQ...

Any interest in learning some PERL? Ha! Plenty, but afraid it will have to go onto a long list of things I'd like to have the time to learn. Maybe this isn't so easy, even though these errors seem super-obvious to us humans, both visually and sonicallly. It could just be one of those things that's ...

I've got 2 answers for you: left ear and right ear. Does it sound right? Like I said, these are long mixes (30-50 minutes). I do a fair amount of them and often don't even listen to the whole song more than once. Right now I do rely on my ears. It would just be nice if they had a little backup, tha...

Plug-in (or small utility) to find errors in audio files?

Is there a plug-in (pref. RTAS) or small utility that can scan audio files for errors like this? I do a lot of mix-tape type projects using CD-extracted audio which turns out such dropouts now and then. I'd love to be able to scan the extracts prior to importing them into a session. Peak Pro doesn't...
