    Positioning an ADAT in a Rack

    It's been ages since I've used my ADATs (blackfaces and XT20s). When I did, I had racks within which I mounted them, and the angle of incline was minimal. Now, I work almost exclusively 'in-the-box' soon will acquire a desk with rack modules. The desk's rack module configuration places the ADATs...

    "Elizabeth's Song" Orginial Composition

    This is a song my Mom and I wrote together in 2013 for one of our church's dramas. When I recorded this I had very limited equipment, experience, and knowledge about mixing. Because of this the tracks themselves have some issues, namely noise. Some of them are in fact very noisy. But I like the...

    Have You Ever Wondered: Would Love Mix and Compositional Feedback (performance too).

    Original Song: First real completed mix of this -- trying for a real "sway" kinda feel (hips moving) -- laying back - trying to get a rolling groove going (even though I'm using Superior Drummer). Still working at achieving an Americana kind of rock feel - a little Southern, and little...

    What is your compositional workflow?

    Nearly all of us here on RO started out as musicians before we became involved in the technical side of music and recording, and while I know that there are some guys here who have let go of the music part over the years, and have decided to concentrate solely on the engineering and production...

I've done a few experiments recently moving the mic around inside the piano and recording myself play. Have a listen to them below and let me know which recording you think is...

    Any Idea Of Fair Price For Raw Piano Recording Composition?

    Hello everyone, Basically, I have asked a rather talented chap on youtube to compose a recording on his piano of some draft work done in FL but he doesn't know how much to charge and neither do I know what I should expect to pay. He hasn't started the work yet. My track lasts for nearly 4 mins...

    Best Book(s) on Music Theory & Composition

    Hey, guys. I'm looking to delve into music theory and composition/arrangement this summer. I was wondering if there exist any books geared towards composing/arranging for a small instrumental ensemble (small orchestra?). The only book I could find with similar content dealt with arranging for...

    composition/midi

    Greetings to all. It's been a few years since I worked on music compositions but have recently obtained a few composition jobs. This past summer I simply wrote out string/ guitar, oboe, & bass parts and either played them myself or had others play them while recording on pro tools (G3 5.1). I...

    Sub position

    I've learned my monitors (KRK RP6s) well enough that I can set bass levels reasonably well without actually hearing all the bass frequencies in the mix. But I can't hear the quality of those frequencies, if you know what I mean - I can't hear how defined or undefined the bass is and that sort of...

    Wiring a three pickup strat with 5 position switch

    I'm doing a setup on a friend's guitar and two of his three pickups don't have any sound, the bridge is the only one that works. I opened it up and the inside looks like somebody tampered with it. They don't even look soldered. I can solder but is there a schematic that I can follow?

    microphone position to reduce sss

    Hello I am recording using an mxl 909 condenser mic connected to a samson c-valve preamp. I think my vocal tracks sound good overall but I am getting terrible and annoying "sss" sounds everytime I say a word that begins with the letter S. I'm recording rap vocals. I've believe i've read...

    How to define a monitor's actual position?

    In owner's manuals, they tell you that you when you place the monitors in corners or close to/flush into a wall or on a meter bridge, you must make adjustments to the EQ settings at the back of the monitor to compensate for it. But what these manuals don't define is HOW close you must get to a...

    Wanted: partner to collaborate compositionally, start studio

    I have been a lurker on this forum for awhile. I guess that it is time for my first post: I am looking for a musical partner (musicians/composers/engineers) with which to collaborate and perhaps start a semi-commerical studio. In particular, I hope to find someone who has a complimentary and...
