Re: Best microphone in the $100 range?

Thanks for the replies everyone. I can plug my guitars into my duet directly, and don't have drums so I'm not really looking to record instruments with this mic... just vocals really. $100 is a ballpark, I could stretch a little bit more if it really stepped up the quality to the next level.

Best microphone in the $100 range?

What say you? Looking for something to record vocals, audio clips, etc.. Seems there is a mic on Musician Friend's stupid deal of the day at least once a week but I know next to nothing about mics. Had been waiting for the Apogee Mic to come out to see reviews since I have always been really happy w...

Is it possible to record live audio from the internet into A

Is it possible to take whatever audio the sound card is outputting, and record that into an Ableton track? For recording samples off of Youtube, etc... Tried messing around with the inputs in Preferences but "built-in instrument" didn't do it, definitely don't want the mic, and choosing the Duet as ...

Mic recorded in right channel only. How do get to stereo?

Panning to the left just makes it fade to silence now. What is the quickest way to make this come out of both speakers? Sorry this seems like such a simple thing I know.

Re: Guitar Solo recorded on Guitar Rig 4 with Live8 Instruments

Thanks for the tips. The bass and drums are definitely very repetetive, they are only about 4 measures looping over and over. Drums were placed digitally in the clip, not played by hand so maybe I will try the ramdomizer effect for the first time. Hadn't tried anything with panning. How would I go a...

Re: EXPORT PROBLEMS: Track volumes changing?!?

Good idea. I checked though, and the only plugins Im really using are a quiet background noise from Absynth. The guitars are also recorded through Guitar Rig, but all of these things Ive just mentioned never really make it past halfway in terms of clipping. The bass track really seems to be the prob...

Re: Why do my track volumes change when I export? Help!

Yeah, I pretty much work entirely in arrangement mode. The song still sounds fine in Ableton (the only good way I can listen to it right now). When I go to export, I render the Master track as a wav @ 192k. I have "Normalize" set to Off. Dither options is set to "Triangular". Is this the default or ...

Re: Why do my track volumes change when I export? Help!

No one? I am not doing anything crazy complicated here... figure I must be missing something obvious. No one else has had a problem with their mix changing during export? I am at a loss for what to do other than adjust the mix, re-export, listen to check, go back to adjust the mix, repeat... which s...

EXPORT PROBLEMS: Track volumes changing?!?

Created a pretty simple mix in Ableton to experiment with Guitar Rig 4. Just has a guitar, synth drum track, synth bass track, and synth high stuff. Everything sounds great in Ableton, been creating the track listening on my KRK RP6s. Got everything sounding nice and I export it (.wav) and played it...

Re: First song on Ableton with Reason, looking for advice!

Cool man, I like this a lot! What synths are you using? I'm not familiar with Reason, are these from it? I think the bass parts sound nice and full and the sitar-type melody thing is fun to listen to. I think the drums sound a little too digital for my ear, unless that is what you are going for (som...

Re: My first track ever. Looking for advice. RHCP dance remix

Thanks jc, glad you liked it! I'll head over and give your track a listen. Thanks for the recommendation Magik, I guess I was going for the traditional dance intro with just the beat for mixing. Overall I think the beginning is the weakest part of that song so Im going to go back in and chop out som...
