Re: Is parellel compression negatively effect with Live's PDC?

Thanks Steve/Nico, I see with my current routings I should have no problems. By default, sends on the return track itself are disabled. Why would one want to create an infinite feedback loop anyways? As mentioned above by others, glue and compressor both have wet/dry now; set it at 100% and then onc...

Re: Tutorials: what's better, AskVideo, Groove3, Lynda.com... ?

The "best of the best" tutorial of the 40 IMHO is Lynda.com's "Mixing Techniques With Waves Plugins" with Dave Darlington. (Presuming one uses Waves plugins). It's a course you can learn from at several levels, depending on your own experience. Definitely, I watched one of his other mixing videos o...

Re: 12 Sends and Audio Effect Racks - How do you send?

That is my understanding, just a little different way of doing things.

Re: Is parellel compression negatively effect with Live's PDC?

What do you mean by 'destructive feedback?' Basically, phasing, transients not being lined up perfectly, being a ms or two off after going through the parallel compression signal path. Using parallel compression will not create phasing issues. However, if you are placing your compressor on a return...

Re: 12 Sends and Audio Effect Racks - How do you send?

There are a few ways in which I typically handle the signal path in order to make efficient use of sends/busses/groups/racks. 1. For the standard sends I typically use them for time based effects that are global to the track, as well as a few effects like saturation, redux, etc. I have them set to p...

Re: Is parellel compression negatively effect with Live's PDC?

I did try it, and have tried it before, I am not sure if I can hear and audible example of destructive feedback, but if it is there I would like to avoid the practice all together, as it might be more noticeable in some instances than others. Also sometimes I feel that transient issues and things be...

EDIT: Testing to come about Live's pdf and parallel comp

Title pretty much says it all. If I am using parallel compression for my drum buss by sending the compressed version to a return track is live's PDC issue going to cause destructive feedback?

I really don't think it's going to be that different from other schools like Full Sail or The Conservatory of Recording Arts in Tempe You shut your whore mouth... :x Let's not forget USC has the highest ranked film school in the country (and for all intents and purposes, on earth, due to the wester...

Re: making drum pattersn with drum pad or keys? not loops!

There's a shitload of videos about this very thing, and I am sure many threads on here as well. Do some digging and you are sure to come up with some. Look at some David Haynes videos if you want some inspiration.

Re: Open Garageband in Ableton?

Midi files should be universal between DAWs. I am unaware if garage band has a midi export option (it should) but if it does you should be fine.

Re: Dr. Dre school of music and technology

I think in most fields a college degree is overrated and overly expensive. I’ve been reading a lot lately that real world self-motivated experience and certification programs are just as good, if not better. The tech industry is full of people at the top level who dropped out of college and along w...

Re: A promo video for my first EP1

Cool, wish there was a litttle more audio content/longer video. I also don't love how the video goes reverse, forward, reverse, forward, etc. But I dig the atmosphere.

Good luck on the EP!

Re: Detune in Automation

What are you trying to detune? If its a synth, many of them have a parameter within the synth itself. If it is audio you can use clip automation via the transpose function.
