Re: To master or not to master?

You'd use EQ's and filters to reduce frequencies. Big transients are where the volume goes from loud to soft quickly. You can see them on a waveform as spikes. Compression can reduce them, therefore lowering the maximum volume of the track. If you're really new at this I recommend the dance music ma...

Re: To master or not to master?

reduce frequencies that aren't used. Low cut nearly everything that doesn't specifically need low frequencies. Use compressors on stuff with big transients. If it's possible on a part, band pass it. Basically every little bit of recuction of frequencies and/or dynamics will reduce the overall volume.

Sorry but chromaphone is a LOT more than just Collision.

Collision's ok but you can do quite a bit more with chromaphone.

Re: Abe waiting on Bitwig?

TBH I don't think they're waiting for bitwig. I think they're just waiting until they have everything they want in and everything stable. IMO they're hoping to not repeat what happened with Ableton 8 which is where they released this fantastic, feature-rich package that was sadly unstable and buggy....

Of course, Max for Live.. How could I forget the infinite awesomeness that is M4L.

Nothing else gives you that kind of flexibility.

Re: Tools for guitar to midi...

I meant my own playing, so I know what the notes will be. I was just wondering if there was a fairly accurate way to get my own character as a player into a track without shelling out for one of those roland midi pickups. I mean, Melodyne with it's DNA etc can certainly do it but I was wondering if ...

Tools for guitar to midi...

Hi, are there any tools in Live (or max for live) to examine an audio part like a guitar part and turn it into midi information?

If there are a number of them, any idea as to which is the most accurate method?

Thanks guys! :)

Re: Slowing down your samples WITHOUT it sounding rubbish?

oh, and when it comes to these algorithms if you work on divisible numbers you'll see it works better, a slow of 2-3bpm is the worst whereas reducing 160 to 120 would cause less audio artifacts because it's a comfortably divisible number.

Re: Overdriving analogue compressor

With my not-entirely-massive experience of analogue equipment, it doesn't work in absolutes and every piece of kit (we're talking down to individual units here) will vary on its limits. If it crackles at 6db then that's its comfortable limit, but that said it might be frequency dependent and it migh...
