AI-Powered Creative Platform for Musicians

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.

Why should musicians care about video?

Here is a link to teaser for a mini documentary that I finished for a client (The town where I live and run my business in). I'll share the full mini-doc when it is released Tuesday. There were several audio challenges. The mini-doc gave three musicians employment and my consulting company work. I will be making about 50 mini documentaries this year and the musicians I work with will get a ton of work from it. Companies, governments and non profits all need to tell their stories. Musicians help tell the story.

My Journey as a Musician (Feel free to share yours)

My mother, (now retired) taught music at an elementary school for 22 years and was a major part of getting the school awarded the Blue Ribbon school of the country. I was her student for a few years and then off to middle school.
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.

Musician wants to edit his own performance

I searched and didn't find any post on this topic, so I hope I'm not duplicating someone else's inquiry.

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.)

Recording musicians - Check out the StudioLive Console

It's possible that you've found this thread because you are a musician, wanting to learn how to record yourself or a band. You are on a budget, you don't fully understand things like converters, preamps, interfacing, compressors etc... and maybe you don't even care about those things right now.

Musician to hire vs artistic integrity

Member for

Hi gang,
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.

Music creation software for non-musicians?

I sing but I don't play any instruments. I'd like to find software that allows me to do the following...

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.

Musician's Institute $81,000 LOL

I saw an advertisement for the Musician's Institute on the back of a bus today so that stirred up my curiosity. Would you pay $81,000.00 to go to Musician's Institute? LOL!
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.

RØDE NT4 stereo mic for recording 2-3musician strings+percussion

Member for

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?
