Studer A807 Mk 1 Software 30/88

Machine had fault were 50 V fuse kept blowing. I think that was loose reel turntable causing the Reel drive to crossbar the supply, whenever it got out of step. That sorted, but now unable to align the Audio.
Unable to get any change in adjustment parameters in Level, hf for Repro Sync and record. All speed, All eq.
BUT can control bias level.
It was storing tape position. ( Latest test, seem to indicate that no that is not happening, but unsure about the reliability of this test).
My fear is that it a faulty MCM2802. eeprom chip.
I can't even find an readable pdf of this device, let alone a replacement.
Can anyone suggest a source, or equivalent ( Fat chance) .
Also one question.
What is meant to cause the chip to go into write mode.
Dam interesting fault. Almost can't believe it could happen.

Logic Pro X Software Inst. only Orchestral - Advice/Critique

Been working with the built in Studio Strings and oboe for an arrangement of Gabriel's Oboe (from the motion picture The Mission).

I've got it the best I can, so now I need brutal critique from anyone who knows more about mixing and orchestral arrangements than me (so, almost anyone).

Currently I don't like the vibrato on the oboe; it's too constant. I like the sound of the Oboe Solo Legato on the EXS24 for what I'm doing, but while I can't seem to modify the vibrato or tie it to any type of controller, so it just keeps on at its constant pace. The other oboe sounds in EXS24 seem way too reedy to me - not sure why the legato one sounds fuller, but it does.

Anyway, all feedback is appreciated!

I would have uploaded the file directly, but says it's too large (even as mp3)

Anyway here it is on SoundCloud. It seems to have chopped off the starting second or so, but for critique I doubt it matters.


Is It Possible to Make Recording, Sound better via software


FYI: Before I ask, let me share (so that you can guide me better), I've a home studio setup and create educational video course.

May I ask you :) Is It Possible to make regular recording sound better via Audacity? I'm passionate to make my recording quality better:

I use MXL 770 (with double layer pop filter), Scarlett solo 2nd gen etc...

I did a demo recording at 3am as it was quite time and still I did remove the noise via Audacity (I do have Adobe Audition CC 2019 but a pro user told me Audacity is better so I'm using it)

Recording after removing noise via Audacity:

I Fixed the Audio:
I used a random software to make recording better but it just increased the volume, here is it:

Raw audio (in case if you are curious what I recorded here is raw audio, initial 10 seconds I was quite so that I capture ambient noise):

Any help will be much appreciated, thank you...

A warning about WAVES software!

I purchased Waves Diamond for $349 just about 3 1/2 years ago. When my motherboard failed, I replaced it and I was given a new Windows product key (no charge by Microsoft by the way). I wound up having to "recover" my Waves license. As it turned out, the motherboard that I bought was a lemon, so I just got a new computer, and once again I was prompted to "recover" my Waveslicense again. Guess what Waves told me? I can only "recover" a license ONCE PER YEAR and in order to use Waves Diamond before June 14th, 2019 I have to PAY Waves $170 in order to get "covered" by Waves' "update plan". How convenient!
I own all kinds of other software. None pull this crap. NONE!

Akai unlocks MPC Software (v2.2) for all controllers

Check it out.

The MPC Software main page.

The new features in 2.2

I bought this yesterday, having been planning on the MPC Studio hardware for some time, I can’t wait to move some air with these sounds! The AKAI stuff is the last part of my virtual drum machine collection for now. I sprung for the iphone app too, lol. GAS tank empty.

Beyond the sample set, the software looks to make quick, clean, work of drastic time and pitch altering, and making your own samples. Very cool. Seems super creative with those processes, which can be a tedium in other programs.

What mastering software use for the future?

Hi people, how are you? I hope good! I am Marcos a mixing and mastering engineer from Brazil and actually I use Mac for mixing and mastering, but in the future I will go with a Windows notebook, because in the same computer my Pro Tools 12 opens with Windows and doesn't with OS X, I am convinced Windows is better, but there is a problem, mastering software. I use WaveBurner and soundBlade to master tracks, I really like these, specially soundBlade, it's amazing! But soundBlade is for Mac only. I want to decide already what I will use for mastering in Windows for the future. What you suggest? I live in Brazil and here the economy isn't good, I don't have money to spend with a very expensive mastering software. I was thinking about WaveLab, what do you think?
