Re: Finding samples on the net?

Also might want to check out the main sample vendors (bigfishaudio, zero-g, gotchanoddin ect ) they all have small free demo files of there sample packs you could make a decent small lib with just these as well.

Re: Ending a song

Oh yeah huge brain fart there I was thinking this was for a "live" setup but if your at home or the studio take the time to write a ending even if all you do is simply start taking out elements of the song then fade it out.

Re: Ending a song

I usually do a mix of the 2 examples given here I have a verb/delay which is gated and make a last clip which i just add just draw in a quick fade at the end near a transient so it fades very smooth.

Re: A generic "what will improve my sound" thread. Pop music

Few things to add treat your room first I can hear the lack of any accoustic treatment in the track and second check out focusrites VRM techonolgy it comes on a few of there a/d's and even a small cube it will take the "room" outof the equasion when mixing and help you get to a better end result.

Re: Seperate mix to headphones?

well attack the problem at the source first and either check your mic pre volume or mixer volume going into live. I dont know what your setup is but this should not be a big deal. Also yes you can make a cue mix to send to your headphones but you need to let me know what your using for a soundcard f...

Re: ensoniq, kurzweil and akai to sampler?

that is odd but i bought translator and one of the options is trranslate with fx 1,2, and 3 on them or off. I have been doing the ensoniq patches first as they are my favorite cds.

I have always owned a sampler and am a hardware guy but love my ableton. I am not so much attached to the mv as just the way of working. I appreciate all the advice and ...

Thanks for that i just got off the phone with chicken systems and he was telling me the same issuses with emu translations. ( i understand as i owned a emax and a command station ) so i see where trying to play the patches in anything else would not be a fair translation. I am going to look into kon...
