  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    help me out here, I'm trying to figure out what I need / want. I've been looking at MIDI pad controllers, either in a 25 key keyboard / 8+ pad configuration, or just a pad controller. The purpose of this is that I want to starting trying to program drums so I can do full demos at home. I'm...

    Not April Fools actually. I have no clue how late to the party I am on this, but I was watching TV last week and saw this commercial. At first I was losing my shit, thinking King Crimson had been sexed up for a fragrance commercial. Which begs the question, "What kind of sick world do we live...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    They sent me a beta sample so I did a review. I like them a lot. They sorta have the same sound that the guitar strings do, meaning they are crisp. I think they are pretty cool.

    Here's a can of worms we haven't opened in a while. What's the current thinking on best practices for recording sample rate? I just realized I have had inadvertently my projects set to 98kHz and I probably don't need it. Last time I checked, most people were thinking that 48kHz was the best...

  6. General Music Discussion
    Redid this for fun at Taylor Larson's studio and Nolly mixed. Apart from a slight reinforcement sample to fatten up the kick the drums are completely natural, I actually miked up a cab properly to do this as well using the pink noise trick Nolly taught me. More details can be found in the...

    page is in german only, but I guess your browser can autotranslate it? You need to register (for the newsletter I take it), than the full activation is free. 8GB of drumsamples. Yeah, prepare that this is a marketing campaign and you can take it for granted that there is more focus on the mic's...

    I have a killer album with S#*t for Drum Samples. I have EZ Drummer DFH and want to replace the bad samples. Bass Drums high hat and snare are on their own tracks, but the cyms are on a stereo pair and the toms are on a stereo pair. I purchased drumtracker but have no clue how to use it. Also...
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    Ok, I'm looking for a good quality sample of a record needle coming off a record, either gently (with the sound of the arm lifting off, and sort of clicking back into rest position) or scratching off somewhat abruptly (a la the end of Dream Theater's Metropolis Pt II). I'd need fairly...
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    I've been experimenting with different sample rates in Reaper over the last few days, and honestly I can't tell the difference between the 48kHz rate mixes and the 88.2khz ones - at least not enough to sacrifice the DAW performance (or justify the upgrade to an SSD). 44.1 > 48k I can definitely...
  11. Music: Recording Studio
    I have some cool old projects that I recorded at 44.1/48kHz, and I'd like to pull it into my DAW at a higher bitrate (88/96). Directly importing and just upping the rate changes the playback rate so the stems I bounce out and pull into Logic are crazy fast. What's the best way to do this? I...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So for you guys who have played with the new Axe-FX II Tone Matching feature, what have you found is the shortest reference sample that will make a decent tone match? And is it better to try and match lead samples or chord samples?
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    This is 100% default, no mixing, no plugins, no extra EQ, nothing. Settings: - 5150 model, stock preset with the delay/verb bypassed - Superior Drummer Metal Foundry using the Sneap "Legacy" preset - Trilian default fender electric/picked preset It's a loud mix, and my playing isn't the...

    This is pretty ace.
  16. Music: Recording Studio
    So, my band's working on some new songs right now, and my guitarists wanted a recording of a couple of the bass riffs I came up with so they could come up with some interesting parts to go with them/remember them, so I set up my crappy Apex mic on my bass cab and recorded them, and it actually...
