Help Me Zero in on this Master Mix

This one is getting really close - I shared it here before. What I'm trying to accomplish sonically is to have the verses drop big like a club music drop - sort of like a big singalong chorus (only for the verses) with the synth basses being really dominant -- as the song evolves from this hybrid club rock track I bring in more conventional instruments and give the bass guitar more prominence in the mix to tie the track together. I think I'm pretty close - is there anything that's not balanced here with those aims in mind? Thanks for giving this a listen again.

Novation Zero SL MK 2 with Sonar

Hi All
Has anybody had any experience with the above DAW Control Surface?
I use Sonar x3 Producer, and at present use my A500 Pro Control Surface function, and to be honest, like the feel of proper faders and knobs for pan etc.
I have tried V-Control pro for iPad, nice idea, but not quite the same as real controls.
Has anybody tried the Novation Zero SL Mk 2 with Sonar?
I read an awful right up last week, but wasn't quite sure the user gave it a descent try.


SIZE=2 Hi. I just purchased a zero dac from china with the intention of doing the frakenzero dac modification.

Unfortunatly a friend has offered me his edirol ua-25 dac for £50 as he is upgrading.

Which dac do you think i should go with.

I can't google up any information on the edirol, probably because it is an old model.

Does anyone know how the edirol may match up against the zero, which one is it better to mod.

Thank you. John. SIZETABLE

What are zero resistance plugs?

I want to connect my digital piano to a Mic IN input using the AUX OUT outputs. Reading through the keyboard's manual I found a reference that states one should use "zero resistance plugs and cables" when using the AUX OUT outputs.

How can I make sure the plugs and cable I buy are zero resistance since I don't know what that is to begin with? Is the term related to balanced/unbalanced plugs?

Thank you.

Back to Zero

There's something very sturdy about returning all the dials back to zero when you are mixing. You know you have wandered off and sort of fixed some issues, but meanwhile you have created new issues and you are getting confused. When you return to zero you hear exactly what's on the tracks in an unaltered way. Take off all effects all eq and listen straight up again. Even go back to no panning and get your bearings.

Then you try to get it right again using mostly eq subtraction not addition, and as little as you can get away with.

'Track Zero' "mastering"

I am working with someone who wants to put a track zero hidden track on his next album; the 'song' is a drumbeat and rapped lyrics that are much more vulgar than the rest of the song, and only 'hardcore' fans will find it.

I found a mention on http://en.wikipedia…"]Wikipedia[/]="http://en.wikipedia…"]Wikipedia[/] that Toast can be used with another file to hide a track in that manner.
