Re: What Joy Orbison used to make.

Re: Logic 9 Adaptive limiter

no, it should sound ok if you're only taking 2 or 3 dB off the master out (and you don't have any other limiters or compressors on there). But the Adaptive Limiter is not always the best tool for the job; IIRC it is designed to sound a bit ragged. Try the normal limiter to see if that's any improvem...

Re: Logic 9 Adaptive limiter

it's a compressor. if you're gaining 2dB in volume, then you're losing 2dB in dynamic range. you'll find the adaptive limiter will, in general, smear the transients off some of your drums, although if you're only taking 2dB off then it shouldn't be too prominent. try jacking up the input gain so it'...

Re: Sending Logic files

if you and your friend both have legit copies of Logic then you only need to check the boxes for EXS/Space Designer/Ultrabeat/etc if you've used your own patches or impulse responses. That should save some space, especially if you've used a strings or piano patch on the EXS... also, have you looked ...

just get hustling basically. write regularly, and consistently. scour the net for things to write about, draw attention to, and for a while, spam the arse off your facebook friends, local forums etc. then, go round every blog you can find in your style and see if they want a link swap. as for interv...

Re: Want to buy tunes with separate stems?

It's a good idea but what's the deal with releasing remixes for copyright purposes and royalties etc? basically, 'don't sell it'. Here's the blurb from the label page (http://bassmusic.bandcamp.com/album/two-blocks-down-stems-pack) : These stems are free to use for 'personal' use; put them in your ...

Re: Fuck the loudness wars

that was Death Magnetic, the CD version. Apparently the version on Guitar Hero wasn't so bad - seems like they listened to fans concerns.

here was a pretty good post about it by a mastering engineer

Re: Time signature deciphering....

^^ yep

sounds like straight up 4/4 to me, just that there generally is no kick on the first beat of the bar. the intro is pretty complex but it's in 4/4 too and resolves after 8 bars :)

Re: Producers and Day Jobs?

i would say that if you're keeping up a steady schedule of releases on decent-sized, fairly established labels - let's say 6 or 7 a year - and gigging as much as you cna, then you'll probably be able to quit your day job. but it'll probably involve somewhat of a pay cut. if you've got a mortgage or ...
