Re: Narration Processing

for future recordings, you can also reduce the problem by making sure you are talking into the right side of your mic, but also increasing the distance from the mic. that design of mic has a pronounced "proximity effect" that exaggerates the low end when you get close to it...

Re: Mystery Latency

are you 100% there aren't any latency-inducing plugins or devices in your set? it's not enough to just disable them btw.

also if you are using some kind of room correction system this might be creating extra latency — e.g. Sonarworks stuff...

Re: Ableton for theatre production

you would have to radically change the way you use Live to use the Arrangement View instead of Session View. Arrangement View is linear, so any looping Session View clips would need to be "unrolled" into long clips in Arrangement View. my guess is that you would lose many of the features of Session ...

Re: A little help with reamping

if you are getting sound from an amp directly connected to the main out without the reamping box in the loop then the main possibilities are: - bad XLR -> XLR cable (from main out to reamper) - level trim on the reamper box is turned down - reamper box is faulty btw, it's not a great idea to use a m...

Re: Noise gate to cancel out hiss from mixer?

Live has a Gate audio effect, but you might not have it depending on which version of Live you have. you do need to be careful with noise gates though as depending on what you are recording you can inadvertently lose quiet bits of your audio, and also the gate can be really obvious when it kicks in ...

Re: iLok deactivate licenses

it's a good idea to deactivate licenses if you change anything on your computer that the licensing systems use to generate the computer "fingerprint", as different plugin manufacturers have varying limits on how many systems one copy of their plugins can be activated on. with local iLok licenses, th...

Re: Recording Harmonica | Software problem !!

how are you doing the export? are there effects on the export?

does this happen only with files recorded by Live, or even if you import a good sample recorded elsewhere?

Re: Does the quality of the Audio Interface affect playback, or only recording?

Does the CPU Load reflect ONLY the computer processing power, or does it reflect anything done by the interface itself? the primary responsibility of your audio interface is AD/DA conversion — converting analog signals to digital and passing them on to your computer when recording, and converting d...

Re: Offensive neighbours decibel level

i do feel for you though. i've had to deal with some extremely inconsiderate neighbours over the years, including stuff like having PA systems running in their yards all night one or two nights every week in summer, and anxious dogs that bark and whine for 8 hours straight. this may be karma for hav...

Re: Offensive neighbours decibel level

it's extremely difficult to make any room or building "soundproof"; doing it well requires building a floating room within a room, which is usually impractical and cost prohibitive. bass is also extremely difficult to control.
