Re: Audio Editing Alternative

I always start the loop just before the transient where you can find the zero level. This is where editors are good because you can zoom in easy and have a big display. Just before the transient (like a few ms). If you start right on you can have a click sometimes. Then I just play in loop mode and...

Re: Audio Editing Alternative

I'm a fan of wavelab and have been using it since V1. Before the days of fancy daw editing you needed a wave editor to pre-process samples for your "DAW" or tracker. I still find it much easier to edit on a nice big display with proper colours and zooming controls. Also you just have the controls t...

Re: Audio Editing Alternative

I use Soundforge for an audio editor, works like a charm with Ableton. Other than being more high resolution than ableton, what does it do that Ableton can't? I'm thinking about buying it because of all the good reviews I've seen but it's hard to decide. For precise editing down to the sample, ther...

Hm that's not a bad idea, thanks. I still don't really understand why audio editors exist seperate from DAWs (RX2 I do because it has a crazy amount of audio fixing features)

Audio Editing Alternative

Hey, I make electronic music and I love everything about Ableton except it's god awful audio editor. When it comes to manually cutting and finding the beggining of a kick for example, of a zero crossing Ableton is just bad. http://i.imgur.com/hiIqUyp.png The blockiness and "smudges" show that it's n...

How To Deal With EQ On Pitch Shifting Instruments

Hey, I make electronic music and there is something that's been bugging me for a long time. I don't understand how to EQ instruments that change notes. I understand that you make a resonant sweep and pick out frequencies you don't like and what not, but if I do that while holding down "A" and then t...

undithered, that would be the one with the ugly audible harmonics

Re: Should I use 44.1kHz or 88.2kHz sampling rate?

I know dude.. and I think the pdf I linked to is a nice entry level explanation.. you know.. for a guy who's just asking what dither is..and not knee deep in it already (wasn't intending to go into semantics..) :lol: Its incredibly misleading for entry level. Probably a few 1000 izotope users out t...

Re: Should I use 44.1kHz or 88.2kHz sampling rate?

the only thing we can agree is that regarding a 'musical tune' digital standards today... are an appropriate acceptable replication for our ears.. that has nothing to do with what we were just talking about, and this entire thread isn't about appropriate, it's about optimal. Finn was asking about d...

Re: Should I use 44.1kHz or 88.2kHz sampling rate?

Because most dither in people's daws is noise shaped, and THAT you want to avoid until the very end. Better to just keep it 24bit and then you don't need to worry about it. Don't all modern DAWs have flat noise dither like triangular? And I've read other places that flat dither should be used befor...
