Used live to remaster this old electronic doom rock track of mine

Never like the original master I did. The equipment was cheap and plugins and DAWs have moved on soooo far compared to those days. I used the multiband compressor and a limiter to catch those peaks and smooth things out a tad.

Re: Anyone having issues with spotify?

I had a different problem; I found a lot of songs I don't know, in my library. Even my "most played albums" showed artists I've never heard of. I contacted Spotify and they advised towards changing passwords and removing the apps that I log into with Spotify. Even after doing that, I still had some...

Anyone having issues with spotify?

Just logged in today to find that all my followers on there have been deleted (or unfollowed me simultaneously - which seems unlikely since this happened overnight). Kind of disheartening. :roll:

Anyone else experiencing this?

Syncing to video workaround

Having to sync to video once you've made your masterpiece in Live isnt a bundle of fun, especially if you're having to use cheaper or free/open source video software. And we all know Live had always been limited to the point of being useless with its own video capabilities. It just wasnt designed fo...

Stack & rack your reverbs

Want a more complex reverb? Stack them and rack them. Eg Room style into a longer tail can give some nice early reflection dynamics. Or split the signal in rack chains by sending a feed to each separately... You can also use a small delay of milliseconds to create more stereo reverbs for lusher soun...

Re: Focus - 1st track WIP

I'm not all that familiar with the genre but its a good effort. The mastering isnt so bad in this tbh, you jst have to be gentle with the use of compressors and EQ, etc.

Joker

Not inspired by the movie, despite what some arse said on reddit... :? Kind of experimental influenced by old sound collage music (I think it was called) https://open.spotify.com/album/1n3cC1tlO6ZTKyu23OXQup https://music.apple.com/us/album/joker-single/1485604768 https://youtu.be/I1qtNo5Sf48 https:...

Re: How long have you been using ableton live? :D

Dont know what the year was but it was version 6 on a PC. I had been using Logic on another PC but stopped in 2003-4 when it started to die on me. Took a few years off from music and got a bit miserable, didn't like Cubase or Cakewalk and Live was the only other option at the time.

Re: Death Stranding Theme performed on the Novation Nova,sequenced with Ableton Live

Nova still sounds lush even for its age!

I dont know the original theme but this sounds pretty good. A bit like Stranger Things

You're not the first. :D

The is seriously cool. Reminds me of mid-90s electronica I used to listen to.

Re: Youtube potentially "to remove uncommercial content" under new rules

There is absolutely nothing new in this at all. It’s always been there. Youtube are a commercial company and have always taken the position they can delete user content for various reasons. It might, at a big stretch, mean Youtube will remove your content if they think you’re music isn’t “commercia...
