An older article but never-the-less, an interesting article on AI Mastering. I remember doing shootouts with @landr and humbly thought a novice attempt to master a song sounded better to their AI process.
For years we've been discussing the future of the master engineer so I thought it was interesting to see how large Landr has gotten now.
My top 3 myths are:
1. All you need is a smartphone and you can make awesome videos.
When I got kicked out of high school, I started dinking around on a cheap MIDI piano. Ran it into SONY ACID (does anyone remember SONY ACID? :sneaky:) and then attached a $15 mic I got from radio shack.
I record a couple of local classical chamber music series for radio broadcast. For an upcoming gig, the solo classical pianist has asked me to turn over my files from his rehearsal and performance, so he can edit them himself.
I've been doing classical field recording for radio off and on since 1978, and I've never had anyone ask for this before. (Maybe I've lived a sheltered life.)
Sorry that I'm a bit less present these days, I'm in a few projects that takes me much of my time and energy ;)
I was wondering if I'm the only one to get screwed every time I want to help a band or recording artist when it gets to integrity and artistic taste.
Let me explain, I get these two guys coming to record an album. (once or twice a week)
The first time they came in, to my surprise they arrived with no instruments. My small studio only have my personnal instruments in it and I'm a bit reluctant to hand them to anybody.
1. "Select" notes one at a time - allowing me to hunt for it til I find the right one, then lock it in once I've got it. (Also, allow me to take each note and make it a chord if I want to.)
2. Tap a key (e.g. the space bar) to play each note (i.e. each time I press the space bar it plays the next note in the sequence), recording the timing to set the tempo as well as how long I hold down the key to set the duration of each note.
I'm thinking that even this school has become a business like anything else... a car dealership that wants your business... a mattress store... etc.
Real musicians are self-taught. They learn by ear. It's in their blood.
I am a 1 man camera crew! (due to budget constraints)
I want to record some musicians(percussion and-or string-guitar) in a small enclosed space( a music store actually).
I was thinking of simply boom mounting a RØDE NT4 stereo mic going straight into my Zoom H6.
Opinions? Would a good cardioid mic be a better choice?
