Are you seeing/hearing the 'big picture' of the music you are working on? Melody first? Pocket? Beat/rhythm/tempo? Harmony marching in sync with melody? Compression is about containment to bring all those things in line. Thanks for this, I couldn't agree with you more. Yeah I have the big picture, ...

OK, I'll Admit It!!! I Need Help With Compression!!

I could really use some help here guys (and gals). I suppose theoretically I understand what compression and limiting does BUT when I try to use it it never does what I need it to do. For example.

Can anyone help with Garageband?

My buddy is a composer and not very tech savy, he has a Mac laptop and what he needs to do is, importa a stereo wav into Garageband, and then record a scratch vocal (preferable through his laptops built in mic) then make a stereo wav of both tracks. I know nothing about Garageband so......

Thanks!!

Mine should be hear today. For the price I think it's a no-brainer really. You get all of the guitar and bass amps and effects that are in the PODxt, Bass PODxt and the Vetta. PLUS you get six modeled mic preamps. $150

Anyone have any experience with these? Any good? How many tracks can I use this on at once? Can I have Neve 1073's on 10 tracks?

Ok, I'm in. I just had my first session recording drums at my spot. One mic over the kit, speaker cab as kick mic. This is the raw track. I haven't done anything to it yet. What would you suggest?

I Need a Site to put mp3's on that can be downloaded........

Any suggestions for a site where I can store some rough mixes that the musicians who played on them can download from?

I did a session the other day and I want to send them some stuff but instead of sending the songs out individually I figured I put them up and have them download them

Thanks

I have an old Sony boombox that I sometimes use for recording guitars, drums, sometimes as a room mic. It has two built-in mics and run a ine out into whatever recorder I'm using.

They're coming out with a Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam) model that looks absolutely BAD ASS!!! Single cutaway, semi-hollowbody, F-holes, tremolo and 2 P-90's. I saw it at NAMM and I can't wait!

Any chance someone here ...
