Its been way too long since I've been here. The new forum looks great. I have settled in to my new business of creating videos for clients and my business needs to become a client as well:) So I've started a youtube channel about all nerd things video👍
The first video I put out is here. I'd love to hear what others are doing to get good audio when making videos. It is such a different world than the recording studio.
I'm at the last stage of an album and am working on mastering. Here are some snippets. I welcome feedback if you'd like to share.
OK so I have a 29' x 29' room with 21' ceilings... what's your ideal drum placement!?
Latest Rabbit Hole project....Started with adding a line isolation transformer and morphed into a complete circuit rebuild... The original circuit was pretty much a widow maker design, with direct line voltage feed the amp.
I have an old MOTU 8pre Firewire I got on the cheap that was working great. Been using it as an ADAT converter to add 8 channels to my 18i20. Today I wanted to try reducing latency by increasing the sample rate to 48khz. While fiddling with it I power cycled it and now after the "sparkle" animation it just displays the word "UP" on the LED display and outputs noise over optical and doesn't respond to pushing or turning the data knob.
What could "UP" mean? Upgrade? Underpowered? Belly up?
What do you do about noise from your computer (fans, coil whine, HDD spinning and writing) getting into your quiet recordings? Obviously, SSDs are a way to prevent HDD access noise. What about the other issues?
I just acquired a tangent series 4 recording console and I am looking for the meter bridge if anyone out there is selling the meter bridge for the series 4, 16/4 model let me know, this boards sounds so warm like my soundcraft series 400 modular system
The subject of our next webinar, on aspects of tape and reel-to-reel recorders, is recording using a multitrack tape recorder. From 4 to 24 tracks tape is back in the studio, so we at Reel Resilience thought we'd better talk about it! More information about the webinar, who we are at Reel Resilience and how to book, can be found here.
I've just finished and uploaded the video of the penultimate song and video from my upcoming album. This track has been in the works for the past three to four months. In that time I've survived getting the dreaded Covid amongst other things.
The track is in two parts and I used alternate acoustic guitar tunings as an experiment. My good friend Mark Beling (also a guitarist) caught Covid at the same time as I did and I decided that when we get through the recovery I'd invite him to contribute to the song.
Greetings. I'm looking for a filter or tool that can remove the music from a live video source (e.g., a NASA broadcast), while leaving the voices and non-musical noises. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it needs to remove/mute enough of the music to avoid triggering YouTube's copyright detection, and not mess up the voices too much. To be clear: I'm not trying to circumvent copyright rules. I'm trying to remove potentially-copyrighted incidental background music from an otherwise copyright-free broadcast. This is my "holy grail".
