when recording acoustic guitars (or other instuments!) using MS technique Im getting mixed results in respect of the balancing of the S channels.
We use good mics, AKG 414 / U87i etc and are dong it through decent analog desk (Soundcraft ghost), but get strange things when balancing for mix.
I was wondering, (I'm using Sonar x1) if the "pan" knob in each channel is actually a balance knob that just manipulates the L/R volumes to create the illusion of panning?
If that is so..i want to use other Vst plugins to actually move the audio signal itself. what do you guys use?
sometimes the drums do the guitar sound inaudible in some parts specially in hard rock guitar distortion if i up the guitar the drums sound no good
how i balance it? using Sonar x1 in pc recording?
I'm still at the editing phase of a hardcore/metal style e.p. So i'm not mixing it yet, just working w/ the raw tracks.
Throughout the song(s) the drummer does different patterns on the kick, which vary from a single kick per measure, to gallop, to straight 16th's. Typical fare for the style.
Hello, first time poster, long time home studio musician. Hoping to get some insightful answers.
First up, the pertinent info about my setup:
M-Audio Delta 1010
With a number of hardware synths, Alesis QS6 for sounds & midi keyboard, Roland TD8, misc. hardware processors.
So two questions:
I recently bought a MXL 990 condenser mic to record with. When I record with Acid Pro 6, its not recording at an even panning level. More sound is recorded into the left speaker then the right speaker.
Has anyone else had this problem? or anyone know how to fix this?
I've been recording live recitals and performances for a while... I've asked a similar question to this before, and eventually fixed it. However, I am still bothered by this:
So I have the SSL boards, parts, and I'm going to start putting it together today, but I have to ask: What's the best way to go about unbalancing the SSL inputs/outputs?
:) A member just raised another question by trying to find a problem in his amp.
The question is, how can you be sure you have
(1) True electrical balance from the power amp?
(2) True acoustical balance from the speakers for each channel?
This question refers to each side of a system with respect to each other.
