In this video I compare Comparisonic colors from Samplitude Pro X4 and the Wavecolor option from Samplitude Pro X5 This may seem like a futil tool but once you get used to it it's very usefull.. Specially if you record a song with a customer and don't know right away where choruses and verses are located.. often the change of pitch is shown in the colors.. Leave comments if you will ! ;)
Today I needed to record a double bass for a track in the works, but as I had some spare time I thought I'd go through the mic stock and try mics I'd not usually pick, just to see what happened.
Cool unit.. very easy to use.. I'll be comparing it to a M audio Profire 2626 and Behringer Ada 8200 through an ancient RME digiset that was sold by Steinberg back in the day.
So far.. I've just had a chance to listen to some speaker test songs and I'm shocked that the difference in D/A between the Ada 8200 and Zen Studio is the same...
Lets compare the sound and process of our MP3 and listen to the results.
I can or someone can provide a 44.1 via soundcloud, we compress it and use the upload button to store and compare . It should make a good discussion.
Until someone has another source, use my Daughters:
Soundcloud stores the full bandwidth ( to what was originally uploaded), make the link downloadable and MP3 it.
Santana is all about dynamics. I listened to most of Santana then compared the same show with Christina Aguilera.
I closed Christina Aguilera in less than a few minutes. But not so much that I don't like her, I expected so much more. I just couldn't stand the sound of the crap compression in comparison to Santana.
I downloaded a Waves plugin package I'm thinking of getting. I didn't realize that they had anything available that didn't cost an arm and 2 legs. Someone else had an old post about waves plugins for $9. That got me looking at their website.
I was thinking about tracking as transparently as possible (Earthworks or Brauner KHE ) into Earthworks 1022 into Avid HDIO16 and then perhaps miking the output of this performance through a genelec 8050.
This way I would collect a database of the relative differences between microphones accurately.
