Gain Staging - Within your DAW !

Gain staging is the most critical things we should learn to keep the integrity and quality of our audio recordings.

Tel me what you think? Anything I forgot? 

In this video I talk about how to deal with it in your DAW. You can do a mix of this song on your own : Song info and download : https://www.telefunken-elektr… Will Evans - "Me and My Crew"…

Signal to DAW not hot enough

I was thinking that if I keep my 18i20 preamps as low as they go, that it would keep any coloration from my 18i20 as low as possible and the primary conditioning would be from my ART Pro II that's connected to my 18i20.
I find that I must use the preamps in the 18i20 in addition to the ART preamp to get my input signal to my DAW up enough.

Any advice is appreciated.

A clear reason to run your DAW at higher sample rate ??

Hi gang,

I've been listening to this youtube channel for a few weeks and it's been twice that this subject as been discussed.
In the video he clearly demonstrate a reason why you'd want to run at higher sample rate or carefully use plugins that has oversampling..

I hope to get your opinion on this.. ;)

older iPad to run DAW?

This site has been great for me to learn some ins and outs and read quality answers. I am hoping to get some insights and suggestions on a technical question. I am putting together a voice recording studio for my teenagers. I have obtained most hardware components - used and open box deals but good quality. Soon I will test it with my Windows laptop.

8 track reel to reel to daw?

Hi all,

I've just acquired a Fostex 8-track reel to reel recorder and an looking to record onto tape and then send the 8 tracks INDIVIDUALLY from the unbalanced rca/phono output to my daw.

Does anyone know the easiest path to do this?

Most of the audio interfaces I've viewed only allow for 2 stereo tracks to be sent or a sum of all 8 channels. I need them to be separate for post editing!

Many thanks for any help.

3 DAWs - 3 sounds?? Reaper vs Sonar vs Samplitude

3 DAWs - 3 sounds?? Reaper vs Sonar vs Samplitude In this video, I test 3 DAWS by doing the exact same mix of the same song. There was a long debate as if every DAWs sounded the same and I thought it was time to get a true answer.

I also give a link to downloadable multitracks songs.

What do you think of the tests, convincing ??
