Re: Worth Picking up Cubase 7?

I think Cubase is great, it was the first DAW I learnt and i didn't find it hard. Although it takes a while to master everything it can do, which is a lot! I'm not sure about Mac and PC, you'll need to ask them. i did some research and can use the key with eaither which is cool. Its basically a cas...

Re: Worth Picking up Cubase 7?

Cubase is awesome. But if you already have Ableton and know it well, you won't gain much by getting another DAW. They're all pretty good, why waste the time learning software you don't need? I think there's already scale and chord plugins in Ableton, plus a few third party plugins like Cthulhu that...

Re: Vinyl to PC recording with Focusrite Saffire?

You'll need an amp (receiver) or a DJ mixer for 2 reasons. 1) the signal from the turntable is extremely low, and they boost the signal. 2) both amps/receivers & DJ mixers have a connection for the ground cable from the turntable. A soundcard won't (as far as I know). In my set-up, I have my turnta...

Re: Vinyl to PC recording with Focusrite Saffire?

I've tried with my Scarlett 2i2. My best results were from going from my Mixer to the sound card with one of these - http://www.djzone.co.uk/ekmps/shops/djzonecouk/images/nexera-6.35mm-jack-stereo-to-2-phono-1.5-metres-390-p.jpg with the input switched to Instrument not Line (no idea why but it sou...

Vinyl to PC recording with Focusrite Saffire?

Hey guys I was thinking of setting up a technics 1200 with my pc for vinyl sampling in ableton. It all makes sense to me apart from how i get the link from phono technics audio plugs into the sound card? As far as im aware the focusrite only has these two preamp inputs on the front that use a TRS pl...

Re: Tips for a Mastering Noob?

Guys I pirated a 250$ plugin and the presets don't make my tracks sound pro = this thread. Yes Ozone is all you need (tbh its more than you need), T-racks is just another suite with similar tools - there's no special tricks, mastering is a whole different art in itself... Seriously read the manual ...

You're looking for a shortcut for something there's no shortcut for. Read the links again. Those are to get you started. How good are your mixdowns? How well is your room treated? How good are your monitors? How much experience do you have mixing down, shaping sound and sound designing? Try to cons...
