Re: Maschine Studio

I recently picked up a Maschine Mikro and I've only toyed around with it a little within Ableton, but it definitely feels like something to make the creative process more exciting. My only holdback right now is the fact my computer is ancient and I'm waited to get a new one with better processing po...

Re: Plugins and iLok

Well, after reading these responses, I think I'll maintain my stance on the matter. Perhaps it's not a bad experience for everyone, but the negative seems to greatly outweigh the positive. ILok just seems too antiquated. After posting this, I tried to use a few demos of software not knowing they req...

Plugins and iLok

I'm starting to expand my plugins beyond the native ones in Ableton and NI. The thing I'm running into is I see many of them requiring iLok. It doesn't take much of a Google search to see that there seems to be a lot of issues people have with licensing, and Pace sounds like a horrible company. What...

I'm not the biggest Eagles fan, but he was definitely a prolific artist. RIP.

I just heard of her, but wow... She pioneered electronic music decades before Kraftwerk and fought Nazis back in the day... I'm impressed.

Re: USB Audio Interface Recommendations, Please?

I'm a fan of the Focusrite Scarlette series myself. Although if I had the cash I would probably upgrade to something from Universal Audio. I used to swear by MOTU, but their stuff got really awful.

Oh shit. You're right. Now I feel stupid. :oops:

Well, this is much simpler.

Re: Mid Side Mixing and Processing

Torturous, yes.

But panning track 1 to the left does not do the same thing. It's a mono track. I need to have something out of phase to create the stereo.

Re: Mid Side Mixing and Processing

After a bit more research and experimenting, I've found this: Make five audio tracks Tracks 2 & 3 are each getting their audio from 1. 2 & 3 each have a Utility plugin on them with the Width set to 0, Phase L on track 3 selected. Track 4 is getting audio from 3, and has a Utility set to width 100 & ...

Re: Mid Side Mixing and Processing

I'll just experiment more with it. I guess it is a different concept than I thought it was. Thanks for the help, I have some better ideas now.

Re: Mid Side Mixing and Processing

Maybe I'm getting it. It's just that the stereo effect has to be extreme. The problem then is the effect like a reverb or delay is also on the Mid channel defeating the entire purpose of wanting to process it clean.

Re: Mid Side Mixing and Processing

It's not really making sense because even taking a stereo I'm getting practically nothing out of the side. I can run a stereo signal into the EQ8, put it in M/S mode and there is barely a signal from the side. I read something about something needed to be encoded a certain way for M/S processing, bu...

Re: Mid Side Mixing and Processing

Ah. I see. I'm confusing dual mono for stereo.

I'm basically trying to process a dry vocal track with mid side. For the mids to have one effect and the sides another.

Would changing the phase on one side trick it into becoming stereo?

Re: Mid Side Mixing and Processing

Right, but technically then, if I duplicate that mono track and pan them hard left and right, and bussed it, I thought it would have given me that stereo field, but it doesn't. I'm trying to do it with a dry signal as well, so stereo effects to just to give a stereo field isn't exactly what I'm tryi...

Mid Side Mixing and Processing

What is the simplest way to turn a mono track into something that I can do some Mid Side processing with? I know if I make two effects chains with the Utility plugin on each chain with a width of 0 and 200, I can do the processing part. But the must be something I'm missing in there to have mono tra...
