    "A-List Composers are Furious about This One Cool Trick..."

    Well-written, John. Always wanted to bring that up, but unfortunately my limited English does not allow for that kinf of essay. Maybe there's a cool trick that would help me learn? :grin: On a more serious note, I do not think "that one cool trick" is so popular nowadays, because everyone out...

    Prepare Song for Mixing

    I wouldn't say it's necessary, but it can be an advantage. Some people like to work with audio tracks and get rid of all MIDI before mixing. Besides obvious technical reasons (bounced audio frees up resources), mixing with audio tracks only can be beneficial for your decision-making process...

    Width vs Depth

    Toy around with the width of your reverbs. Sometimes I find that a very narrow reverb or even a plain mono reverb helps me to get that kind of depth I'm looking for. It really depends on the track, but you should definitely give this a try. It's worth it.

    Is it possible to be an extroverted music producer/componist?

    Plenty of ways to collaborate with other musicians, writers, producers. You can be part of a duo, but you can also part be part of a much larger group. It all depends on your wants and needs, and of course on the interests of the people you work with. Start small and ask a friend if he'd be...

    Spitfire Labs Drums (Ollie Waton) - do I need more?

    I'd say it could work, but then again I'm not exactly sure what kind of sound you're after. I agree with the above post, that kit does sound a bit vintage. Maybe you should go for that sound where the drums are a bit 'buried on purpose', if that makes sense. If I had to use that kit in an...

    Bunker Strings Vol. 1 - summer sale 30% off!

    I'm way digging this library. The sound is pretty cool in general and I also like that fact that I can quickly create a track using only this lib and nothing else. I need to experiment a bit more tough - layering these instruments with other Kontakt stuff is fun. A lot of options. Anyway, you...

    PRO Q 3 Not EQing as Expected

    It does. I was thinking the same thing. OPs problem must have to do with some sort of parallel signal flow or partial processing. Moquan, have you tried the Pro Q 3 on a 'normal' audio channel? Maybe you should create a simple stereo audio channel (routed directly to your output), see what...

    Kontakt 5 is too old to load this patch... *SIGH*

    I think @sostenuto is referring to the .nki files. Get in touch with Spitfire. They might send you new .nki files (which are often simply called 'instruments') and they will also explain to you what you have to do with those files (you'll probably just overwrite the old instruments with the new...

    New big grand session is been proceed

    I like your playing a lot. Sounds lovely! Maybe you want to check out a phase alignment plugin (and not restrict yourself to time alignment in your DAW). It might get you closer to the desired result. Voxengo's PHA-979 (hey, it's Russian;)) or Betabugs' Phasebug (a freebie) come to mind. Can't...

    Anything else like vynil noise to give the track imperfectness and character?

    You could experiment with a combination of different plugins and sound sources. Do a search for 'room tone' or 'ambient noise' and maybe you'll find something that's to your liking. Here's a nice room tone for starters (a free Kontakt library):

    What's the word on clocks?

    9-pin D-SUB cables/connectors were used to sync multiple machines. 'Sync Out' of machine #1 was connected to 'Sync In' of machine #2. From there the sync signal was passed on to machine #3, the unit that ate your tape. Great fun!

    How to obtain this deep reverb piano sound from widows soundtrack

    Also, keep in mind that the velocity level will probably have a very strong effect on your sound. A loudly played instrument will always sound loud, even if played back at a very low volume. A softly played instrument will always sounds soft, even if played back at high volume. Most instruments...

    PCI audio interfaces improve performance?

    Agreed. The rest of the setup needs to be checked too, software and other hardware. If the plugins/template allow for a reasonable latency, then adding a PCI card will get the desired result. How about a used RME Hammerfall card? Great bang for the buck and rock-solid drivers. Had one for many...

    Griffin Powermate. Anyone using it?

    Never tested one, but I hear there are driver/software problems with recent versions of Windows. That thing was designed for XP/Vista, no support for Win7 or more recent versions. Too bad, since that knob looks like it's quite a handy tool.
