My home studio audio/video production

I've just finished and uploaded the video of the penultimate song and video from my upcoming album. This track has been in the works for the past three to four months. In that time I've survived getting the dreaded Covid amongst other things.

The track is in two parts and I used alternate acoustic guitar tunings as an experiment. My good friend Mark Beling (also a guitarist) caught Covid at the same time as I did and I decided that when we get through the recovery I'd invite him to contribute to the song.

Critique on all-digitally produced sample/idea ...

Hi all, It's been quite a while. I've been messing around with a few things and have stayed ITB ...even using all VSTI for drums, guitar, and bass. I picked up the Weiss Complete plugin package, and it has turned around my beliefs on mastering needing to be done all OTB. So far I'm not looking back either.

Linux Compatibility for Sonar 8.5 Producer's

Many moons ago, I won a contest from for a copy of Sonar 8.5 Producer's edition. I have been happily running the software on a Windows 7 desktop.

That machine has gone on to a better place so now I am putting together a new desktop. I am looking into running a Linux system (but may just do a dual OS install for audio).

A look into Cakewalk's support and a general internet search has yielded not much information at all at whether or not Sonar 8.5 Producer's is compatible with any Linux OS?

Mix exercise from Produce like a pro (downloadable tracks)

Ok it asks for a sign in (first name and email) but otherwise it's free !
But for those who want to practice mixing but may not have the recording part perfect yet,
why not download well recording tracks and practice..
Post you mixes here if you want and let's discuss the results
or on like asked in the video
BTW it's a pop song...

Removing artifacts produced by software


I did a search and decided to just create a new thread on this specific topic.

I am looking for advice on reducing or even eliminating (hopeful) the mechanical artifacts produced by audio software. An example is Audacity, a common and free application. The plugin included with Logic is similar and even superior but it also produces the unnatural sounding mechanical artifacts best described as that unnatural character getting farther away from a natural sounding voice and ever closer to a vocoder sound.
