The SOS Guide To Mix Compression Technique : Effects / Processing Compressing the stereo bus can give your music coherence, smoothness and, above all, punch — but there are plenty of pitfalls for the unwary. We lead you through the minefield that is mix compression. Will Haas Mix-bus compression can be a confusing topic for inexperienced mixers and engineers. After all, some great mixers swear by using mix-bus compression, while others prefer to keep the mix bus pure. Forgive me Lord, For I have Synth: A Guide to Subtractive Synthesis - Zeros and Ones Subtractive synthesis is easily the most important type of synthesis you will come across. Why? Because everything that falls under the subtractive umbrella term has gone on to directly influence other types of synthesis such as additive, wavetable, frequency modulation and nearly anything else you can think of. The term is descriptive as it’s about sculpting sounds from harmonically rich waveforms using filters, envelopes, LFOs and amplitude shaping, and it’s the sound of quite literally thousands of records dating from the sixties right up until now. Let’s start out by having a look at the front panel of a few common analog synths. Moog Minimoog
netzstaub » Writing Ableton Control Surface Scripts I’ve been dabbling with ableton control surface scripts about one year ago (some people may have seen the FCB1010 control surface script: FCB1010 Mappings, which I don’t really have the time to support at the moment). Btw I have a new version of the mappings, but they’re not really documented, but if you’re a bit into programming you may be able to get the mappings from the consts.py file: new undocumented mappings. In the following, I assume you know how to use remote control surface mappings inside ableton (the whole Midi Devices Input Output thingie). But let’s get down to the business of writing ableton remote control surface scripts. The scripts are written in Python and are stored inside the Ableton Live application in the Resources folder under Windows, or inside the application bundle under MacOSX. The directory containing the scripts is called “MIDI Remote Scripts”.
Event Opal - Studio Monitor (Tech) We all know how important high-quality monitoring is in the studio; there is simply no point in having all of the synths, effects processors and fancy plug-ins in the world if you can't do them and your mixes justice. We know too that monitors are available in all shapes and sizes and that decent quality monitoring is now available at a fraction of the price it was even a few years ago. However, the old adage of "you get what you pay for" is as true now as it was then. For producers who take their work seriously and have pockets deep enough to justify a heftier outlay, there are some great semi-pro and pro solution monitors available right now. Amongst those earning rave reviews and praise are the Event Opal monitors so, despite having been available for a while, we decided it was time we had an in-depth look and listen for ourselves.
Big Bad Bass - A Tutorial on Low Frequencies Sub-bass occupies the frequency range from 20 - 100 Hz. It is not so much heard, but felt. Sub-bass is responsible for creating a low-end presence that gives a bassline its power. Special attention should be paid to this layer as low frequencies take up a lot of headroom in a song. The Foundation of Synthesis Upload Subscription preferences Loading... Teenage Engineering - OP-1 (Tech) Do you remember the Casio VL-Tone series of mini-keyboards from the '80s? Still considered by many to be an achievement in engineering, what it lacked in functionality it made up for in portability, design and fun. A couple of years back, a peculiar group of Swedes who called themselves "Teenage Engineering" started showing up at the big music gear trade shows with a prototype of a new synth called the "OP-1" that appeared to be a modern rework of the VL-Tone. The physical design was deeply rooted in the original, but it had a distinctly 21st century industrial feel, as if Jony Ives himself had gone to work for Casio. Despite the slick exterior, it was hard to take the TE boys very seriously at the time, because for a while the demos didn't make any sound. But as more and more people started seeing this new synth—and the big gadget blogs start catching on—a nearly unprecedented level of anticipation started building.
47 Sites Every Recording Musician Should Visit In a recent “Open Mic” we asked you, “Which music-related sites do you visit regularly?” This article is a summary of the great suggestions given in the comments to that article.
