I've been working on a new instrumental. Well, it's actually a re-work of a track I first attempted 20-odd years ago. Anyhow, what does everyone think? Have I nailed it?.. I'm trying to get the drums to sound 'decent'.. Might have over embellished in a few places..
At usual, I'm mixing on my trusty DT-990 pro headphones.
I've been playing around with the Horns virtual instrument in Logic again and come up with the attached track. What do people think? Is it a little too busy in places.. (?) I was going for a big-band blues funk kind of vibe.
- I used Bias Amp 2 for guitar amp simulation (I played all parts on a LP 2015 Traditional).
- Drums are a hybrid EZ drummer kit based on the drumkit from hell (-- I generally like this kit; has some nice choked crash sounds) but with the progressive snare and a less metal-sounding kick.
I've never heard one of these. Love the depth of the bass when it comes in. Looks like many of the videos I watched are using pick-ups however I would enjoy hearing examples of them being recorded with mics.
Any examples, please share.
This has been a real fun one to do. The piano and brass parts are all plugins and I'm not a keys player so I had to transcribe my lead guitar parts note for note. I *think* I just about pulled it off..
I also applied some compression and adaptive limiting (noth courtesy of Logic Pro) on the master. (Hopefully I didn't overdo this).
I'm mixing a guitar-based track and struggling to get the drums to sit well.. I'm very much a newcomer to this stuff so any thoughts or feedback on how I could improve things would be greatly appreciated! (Find mp3 attached).
hi everyone, i have an isp decimator g pro rack guitar version, for my marshall 9200, jmp1, jfx 1 configuration i would need the stereo mod version, i tried to look for used ones, but i couldn't find any. Opening the frame of my decimator I noticed that there is the possibility to convert it from guitar to stereo and vice versa. At the top left is indicated a legend of the position of the components that must be added or removed according to the version to be obtained, the problem that the values of the individual components are not described.
A group I'm in to do lockdown quizzes - got us all to do a nominated round - I got given a bass round to do. Now it's over I'll share it if anyone is bored silly!
Basically - the bass line from ten songs that I've played live at UK holiday centres, cruise ships and theatres over the years. Played as is - so yes, there are mistakes, but it was a quick and dirty quiz, so I know I messed quite a bit up, but that's life. If you fancy a go - most quite easy, but a few kick you when you get the answers.
7 WAYS to record an acoustic guitar !
In this video, I demonstrate 7 ways to record an acoustic guitar so you can try and find the best technic for your instrument and to server your song..
Let me know what you think !
All my music of the last ten years falls into chillout, or classical really. Rarely voices, apart from the show tracks and stuff like that - but the stuff I put out there is slowish mainly, and orchestral or synthetic in nature. My guitars get used live with the band, but my own recordings are pretty old-fashioned. I'm happy with this.
Whenever I record the guitar, I get this super high pitch hissing noise that I can get rid of with a noise gate fx when the guitar isn't being played (very beginning of the clip) But as soon as he starts playing, the noise gate isn't effective any longer. You have to turn the volume up louder to hear it clearly.
This is an archtop guitar, plugged into a reverb pedal, plugged into the mixer, and the mixer outputs to the inputs of the video camera (the guitar isn't mic'd)
Thanks for any input on what the noise is, and how to eliminate it completely if possible.
