Mix Critiques and Feedback / Re: Acoustic Pop Punk Track
« on: May 05, 2012, 07:46:20 PM »
Cheers for the feedback,

Had alot of problems with the vocals, i think i recorded them wrong to start with therefore had many problems whilst mixing, also it was the first time i had used melodyne, which i think i went abit overboard with.

appreciate the point in the right direction though

The Control Room / Guitar Rig Problem?
« on: April 09, 2012, 07:38:03 PM »

Guitar rig is working fine for me as a stand alone application,

however when i use it in Logic as a plugin, it doesn't work, any ideas?

Im using a MAC with logic Pro 9 and a focusrite saffire pro 40 interface, im sure i'll have to change a setting within logic or on the interface but unsure what exactly.

Thanks for your help

Mixing Talk / Re: Panning
« on: April 08, 2012, 02:29:03 PM »
this is the first mix by the way -

I had 2 mics on the acoustic guitar which i panned hard left and hard right, then put lead guitar slightly left and slighty right

Lead vocals were kept in the centre, harmonies were slightly left and right,

gang vocals were 4 tracks which i did hard left, hard right and slightly left, slightly right

strings were left in the middle

tips? suggestions?

Mix Critiques and Feedback / Acoustic Pop Punk Track
« on: April 08, 2012, 02:07:27 PM »

Here is a track i recorded and mixed, it is my first ever attempt at recording and mixing. I used 2 rode NT1 microphones, added strings, glockenspiel and extras myself whilst mixing to add interest to the track.

I used melodyne for the first time aswell, next time i will use less as its quite obviously used in parts of the track, so need to brush up on that abit and i had some trouble with the chorus vocals, as they distorted which could be either i recorded bad, or exported it out of melodyne with the wrong sample rate.

Please have a listen though and let me know how i could improve things for future mixes and any tips you have,

The Control Room / Wharfdale diamond 8.1 pro active....without interface?
« on: January 06, 2012, 02:58:40 PM »

I recently got some Wharfdale diamond series 8.1 pro active studio monitors.

I have heard that i cant use them without an interface and some people say i can just plug them into my mac.

I know i'll need an interface for recording however is it possible just to plug straight into your mac for mixing?

Let me know im new to this and starting to get a home studio together,
