Free dx, vst, audio units, rtas plugins and effects - Tracking : Resource Library and More Information Look here for articles on applied recording techniques and mic placement. It all starts here! Acoustic Guitar Tracking the acoustic guitar is a huge subject, because so much contributes to the final sound—player, instrument, room acoustics, mic choice and placement, effects, and more. Electric Guitar The electric guitar is the central sound of rock music, and has influenced everything from blues and country to electronica. Bass Recording the bass can be as straightforward as a simple DI to the console or as complex as multiple mics on an acoustic bass fiddle or giant amp stack. Other Guitars The archtop, the dobro, the parlor guitar, the pedal steel—scary to the newcomer, each with its own challenges. Drums & Percussion Miking drums is an art form. Vocals The human voice is the most recognizable sound to the human brain. Horns & Woodwinds Whether you're recording jazz, jump blues, R&B, or whatever, a clear and present woodwind track or a slamming horn section can make your arrangement fly.

SacredGeometryOfMusic The Sacred Geometry Of Music by Andrew Lorimer Music uses the laws of vibration to manifest aurally what exists at the center of everything. Into our reality springs a non-visual harmonic law that is universal. The notes and intervals of music speak directly to the chakra centers and causes them to vibrate in harmony to the vibration of a string or vocal chords, speakers moving through the air, or the sound of someone’s lips making a farting noise through a metal tube. Music uses the laws of physics and mathematics to bring out an emotional response in the listener. The music of the Western world uses a mathematical system based on Twelve. All the songs you have ever known and sang along to in your life use the same simple laws based on the number twelve. Clock Harmonisphere The mathematics of the harmonisphere are amazing. When we measure the same chords on the harmonisphere, the seven chords have the same mirrored combinations as the piano:

Manx Synthesizers Thinking inside the Box: a complete EQ tutorial - dnbscene.com ContentsThis article was originally written and published on dnbscene.com in 2003. Part One: Intro To begin: an anecdote. I started making music with Impulse Tracker. Slowly I came to realise the problem. EQ and compression are simply the two most important tools in music production. Think of it this way. My mistake - and, I think, the mistake made by many learning producers - was to be tempted by the more exciting task of choosing the colour schemes and leather sofas, when my walls could be knocked down by a sneeze and my roof was made of paper. Hence this tutorial. Now I could simply do a lightning quick tutorial on compression - I could say, for example, "for basslines it's best to compress at a ratio of 3:1, threshold -6db" or whatever (that's a totally fictional example by the way). My central concept is that producers in the digital domain are effectively working inside a box. A word of warning. Anyway - enough disclaimers...
Diva 1.1 vs. Matrix 1000 The reason why the Matrix sounds more "3D" is because it has wetter fx on it. First, think about it...what causes 3D-ness? It's the context of space. What creates space? Delay, reverb, and imaging. This is what I did... I analyzed the stereo data of the sounds (without the mono) as well as the mono data and the stereo field here is nearly the same on both, so I ruled that out. Then, I listened to the small pauses in between each section change. So, I added a bit of echoboy space echo and some early reflections (in mono) from Rverb. Then, I listened a bit more and noticed that there is more distortion in the Matrix. Finally, I used a spectrum analyzer and matched the harmonic spikes in the bass to be a bit closer. Level match everything, and voila! If anyone is super interested in this I can make a soundcloud account or something and upload the files however I really hope you just do it yourself and see exactly what I'm taking about because I am lazy and it is better for you. Cheers

www.guitarhabits Photo by Jsome1 Playing 3 notes per string exercises is something I do on a regular basis. I use them to warm up, to become a faster guitar player and to spice up my improvisation. 3 notes per string licks and scales are generally used for speed picking. Whenever you hear a guitar player playing these really fast terrifying licks, it’s probably a 3 notes per string lick. If you practice these exercises properly and often enough you will increase your speed. The 3 notes per string exercises are played using the alternate picking technique. Once you get the hang of it, it can become quite addictive, but be careful though. The one and only reason why these monster guitar players become so incredibly fast is that they practice long hours for days, weeks, months and years.
