Brian, Really like this song--nicely done, with some great vocal backings and a solid hook. As others have noted, the lead vocal seems a bit buried. Would be great if you could bring it forward and feature it more--your vocalist has a nice voice and tone. I'll look forward to hearing your next take on this. All the best, Deej

James, Well, this have a very powerful cinematic feel to it. Just love that rhythm guitar in the backing. Was looking for something about a third of the way through to come in a bit lower, or maybe a bit fuller, than what came in at 1:56--think there's an opportunity to establish a bit more depth. But, hey, I'm really new to this--so take my thoughts with a big, big boulder of salt. Oh, and really like the percussion (?) that starts and repeats from 2:38. Well done, James! All the best,

You should be able to buy a Universal remote at any electronics outlet that sells tvs. Most Universal remotes will accept the code type entry. The Logitech Harmony is a bit different. You plug it into your pc via USB the it goes off to Logitech where you tell the software about your tv or whatever. You can have 4 or so devices configured at once and flip between them thus reducing the amount of remotes hanging about. Be sure to ask the sales person that you can put in the Olevia codes. Y

Good addition. Over the years this feature and its many nuances have often seemed to be quite "iffy", if not flat out broken. So it's good to have a concise overview like this vid to cover the ways it's all supposed to work.

I have ARC and had ARC'd my old studio so I knew it pretty well. This new studio.... well, to be honest, I haven't yet taken the time to run ARC on it. I've been meaning to do that and plan to get around to it...really I do...... once I do finally ARC this room, I'll have a better handle on all the frequencies. Remember: You can't mix or compensate, or treat what you can't, or don't hear.

Jump to new posts Re: When setting up for MP3 what should the peak level be by Guitarhacker @ 08/15/18 01:35 PM

-3dB is a good target. But why are you using mp3's instead of waves for performances? Use an audio editor such as NCH's Wave Pad so you can see the wave form in both mp3 and wave format. You can see how much room you have to the 0dB level and if you have "overs" or not. It also allows you to normalize and set your peak level to whatever number you want. There's no problem with running the mp3's to 100% or 0dB to get the most from them. Nothing is clipping at that level. Personall

Jump to new posts BIAB a great tool by Mark Styles @ 08/15/18 12:50 PM

I've been composing music for a LONG time. I first became acquainted with BIAB in the late 80's. I had to do 16 nursery rhymes with all different singers, and each song in a different style. And had 3 weeks to do it. This would have been totally impossible. I had seen mention of BIAB. I bought it - and completed the task on time. The client was amazed and delighted. Then I worked for a music library service, which also demanded variety, and fast turn around time. At that point I began list

That's an issue I have with Mac computers. I don't by cheap computers, my 2002 Think Pad still bounces around on stage with me, along with a Win7 ThinkPad. The Win7 machine replaced another 2002 Think Pad. I could get by on one, and both computers are setup to do both tasks. In the unlikely event that both die, I could zoom over to any store that has computers and buy a PC because I also have everything I need on a flash drive. I couldn't do that with a Mac. Apple and Lenovo both make fine c

Hi EMG I added a layered paino improvisation to a YouTube user named meta sage. I wanted to see if was possible to add a custom piano backtrack to what he was saying ( link below ). When I listen to the 9 minutes of my piano alone I hear unresolved progression parts. So I removed it. Now I have a 5.58 minutes. But I am bored with it. I take my 5.58 minutes piano midi and feed it to BIAB with a country style eliminating my piano altogether. I mute piano 2 my piano playing cause it doesn't match

Hi I'm upgrading my acoustic set list and thought my investigations, thanks in part to my 13 year old daughter and spotify, might be of interest. D seems to be the preferred Key and ‘turn arounds’ are all the rage. I must admit, I like several new songs (Though I filter out most moronic, misogynist, vulgar lyrics.) Anyway these might be of interest for a listen. I've included YouTube links (official video releases) for most. I think they're all in standard tuning. Finesse (Bruno Mars) h

Interesting read. I'm sitting here between two or more typhoons over Japan, China and the Philippines. Just returned from the Philippines where Manila is more like Venice without anything nice and in Hong Kong it's raining endlessly. Time to safeguard my gear.
