Re: The Initiation

Thanks Zamise!

I'll bring the vox up just a tad but I'll leave the final EQ to my mastering engineer. :ugeek:

Re: The Initiation

Okay, I've revisited the mix a bit now, improving vocal definition and instrument separation.

Re: The Initiation

Thanks! It came together pretty well. :D

I only finished it in the wee hours of this morning and wanted to sign off on the mix before my ears went totally wrong. :banghead:

...I'll probably tweak it jut a little more but wanted to get a feel for people's impressions as it stands.

Complete remix: "Breathing Machinery"

Breathing Machinery has never been "quite right" in my mind, so I've revisited it. I've done a complete reworking, including removing the piano that was paralleling the vocal's melody and obscuring the vocal. I've also tightened up on some of the pad sounds by lowering the reverb return on them. I ...

Re: Arturia Origin Keyboard - Wow!

Carbon111 - while you were actually there and heard the Origin, I find it a bit odd that it did not sound good at all. I should probably clarify - It didn't sound good at all compared to the many analog synths I have. For that matter, it didn't have a particularly good "VA sound" either, it was ver...

Re: Waldorf Q+, almost like the Loch Ness Monster?

For me the analog filters didn't bring enough additional flexibility to the table to justify the additional cost. This demo is all Q except for drums and some spoken word: http://www.carbon111.com/music/the_face_of_strangeness.mp3 Besides the slightly cold, standard filter emulations available on th...

Re: Recommend rack tube pre's

Or the next level up (and highly recommended by myself) is the Universal Audio 610. It's a 'lil more spensive at about $600 per channel, but sounds freakin fab. +1 The Universal Audio gear is fantastic "bang for the buck". I picked up their LA-610 channel strip and absolutely love it! I use it all ...

Re: What are the common problems with the SCI Prophet 600?

-Dirty key contacts Yep, but pretty simple (if tedious) to remedy. Details are on the Old Crow page . Did this fix for my P600 and it was only partly successful, I still had intermittant keys. The solution was to get the Circuitworks Rubber Keypad Repair Kit , available from many electronics supply...
