already use it, but gave me the idea to go to the sample libraries section to browse instead of just searching splice sounds. thanks anon

Yes it depends on the genre/performance context. Typically you'd use something like a pair of cardioid condensers at either end of the soundboard (ahead of the hammers, a foot or so above the strings pointed down) to capture the low and high registers in higher detail (the hammers fitting the felt, the pedal noise when then the felt comes down from the strings etc). In many cases the mechanics of the piano might be overbearing, in which case you'd want to try positions further from the hammers. You can try using your lardge condenser (assuming it's omnidirectional) in the middle of the soundboard, further back from the hammers, a foot above the strings. You'll get less detail in the attack and less presence in the extreme registers but have a more full-bodied that would probably suit you for your intents/purposes. Generally using small diaphragm condensers pointed at your strings like that will give you a "closer" sound, whereas positioning them outside of the piano a couple feet away from the open lid (pointed in to the lid, downwards at 45 degrees) will give a similar impression to what a listener might hear in an audience - none of the detail in the mechanics and more room. If you have a sharp sound coming from a close recording, it may be difficult to fit in nicely into a mix as the transients coming from the keys hitting the felt will assert themselves too dominantly and might "jut out" from the rest of the instruments. You will probably have the best results buying a pair of cheap cardioid condensers like Rode NT5s (less than $500) to get a good solo piano recording

What genre? Splice is kind of king at the moment, they have artist-specific categories and decent tagging system.

do you have any tips in general for mixing at home? im going to be mixing my bands home recorded psych rock EP but i have 0 experience mixing. we want to go for a lofi DIY feel but still actually sound good
>>
>>95526326
If you have zero experience mixing, I'd advise to record drums with as few mics as possible. Badbadnotgood's BBNG2 album was done with 1 mic recording the whole drum set, sounds great IMO. Sure, you won't get the most control over your sound but you will spare yourself a massive amount of time and stress. Apart from that, compare your mix to a reference track that you like the sound of. It will give you a reference point and keep you on track so that you don't lose the plot mixing your song. Pay special attention to the balance of the mix (loudness of each part of the mix) because that alone will take you 80% of the way. Cut out the lowest rumbling subs from instruments that don't need them (like a guitar) with a high-pass filter. If you find that something is boomy, use a low-shelf in your EQ to remove the boomy-ness without killing your sound with a high-pass. De-ess your vocals with a de-esser and use a compressor to even out the vocal delivery (use some vocal presets in your compressor plugins). Use a broad bell in your EQ around the 10-12khz range to boost a few dB on sounds which need more "brighness." Use reverbs and delays with sounds that are too dry and need space, just be sure to highpass those reverbs/delays with their internal filter (they should have one) so you don't wreck your mix with them. That's a small selection of the most immediate problems you'll face. Don't be afraid to use presets, and don't use plugins for the sake of using them without knowing why.

Every shape can be argued as the odd one out.

1 is the only shape of a different size
3 is the only green shape
4 is the only shape without a border
5 is the only circle
and 2 is the only shape that isnt unique. Its shape, colour, border and size are the standard with which every other shape differs from in one of these areas.

ok, it's A, but this is either, a troll to trick people into thinking the tiles are the same colour, or a poorly done rendition of the original illusion, cause square B should've been the 3rd column 3rd row square, instead of that one

Does anyone else find it amusing when self-proclaimed "intellectuals" claim to have "strong, well-formed opinions" about music, or indeed any other subject, and insult those who are indecisive? Any true patrician knows that any belief or opinion is highly liable to change as knowledge and experience are accumulated. In most or all cases, the weaker the belief, the stronger the intellect of he who holds it.

Yes, I am this way (not claiming to be an intellectual though lol) but I find that this skepticism of my own ideas sometimes ends up putting me in a position where I am never confident enough with my knowledge in a certain subject. It's a real pain in the ass and a it fucks with your ego.

You obviously don't know what Socrates believed. Acting like Socrates would support your opinion is ironic given what Socrates actually meant by that quote.

>>95523458
Intellectuals don't self-proclaim they are, they just take the time to form strong, well-formed opinions. Said opinions are strong because they're built from experience and errors in thinking. In fact, not holding to an idea is what troubled kids and coomers do.
