Not sure this is the correct general to ask and it will probably sound stupid but here we go.
I want to record classical guitar and I have the following chain of gear:
>classical guitar > 1 small diaphragm condenser > audio interface > reaper on the computer
I know the ideal is to have 2 small diaphragm condensers to create the stereo effect but I only bought 1 condenser.
I saw some brands sell pairs of condensers exactly for this purpose. My question is, these condensers that are sold together are different from each other? Do they have a specific feature as a pair or can I use 2 random condensers and it will have the same effect?
>>
>>111999008
just use any 2 random condensers. In your DAW, you can then match up the recorded audio files to make sure that they are completely in phase.

Hello /prod/ friends...
How can I not regret song that I made.

Some years ago I made this song
https://voca.ro/126IS2YTA5EC

And I regret it.

I went to a studio and I didn't feel comfortable recording the song. I write a rap over it. I felt so bad that I paid the guys half of the studio session and didn't even come back to finish the recording.

But I felt so exited at the time. Happen to me for 4 songs now.

>Get exited
>Feel like I m doing something innovative
>years later regret it
>Even felt cringe by what I did
>>
>>111999008
you can get any two of the same condenser to record as a stereo pairy or just mix and match two completely different microphones if you know what you're doing or if it sounds right to you
matched stereo sets are a meme

Does anyone here have experience with the Spectrasonics Trilian bass guitar plug-in?
>>
>>111999983
yes
>>
>>112000016
I can't get any of the alternate articulations (slides etc) to trigger, even after setting the channel in Trilian and changing the channel of the notes in the MIDI editor in my DAW. when I do this with other plug-ins it works just fine. Is there some additional step I need to take in Trilian?

How are the vocals here?
>>
>>112000240
dunno about midi channels and all that, I always used keys witches for articulations
use live mode, then load an articulation you want to use in a slot, right click it and assign some shit to control it, I use lowest octave notes as traditional keyswitches
>>
https://voca.ro/199zjJXizhXK
Yo this is the first im posting anything, would really appreciate honest opinion of the vocals and post prod on vocals. I didnt make the beat... Also it only goes half way so if anyone wants to add vocals to it be my guest.

>>111999559
I also feel shame or regret about songs I made in the past too, but maybe thats just us being hard on ourselves. You might be better now so this sounds worse than what you do now. Honestly your song in the middle after the buildup was nice. Maybe its just missing more skill how to blend it together better.
>>
>>112000381
Anon it sounds like you're writing music for babies.

Also what the fuck is up with that white noise whenever that xylophone is playing, it makes me not want to listen to your music. How the vocals sound should be the least of your worries.

No need to get so aggressive. Improve your reading comprehension instead. That anon obviously meant that mastering services is a scam, because any mix engineer can learn to master, and that's where I agree with him.

>>
>>112001073
initially I liked the channel, too. But apart from subjective issues (his voice is as triggering as Paul Dano's face), there is a major problem with his approach that not only makes it useless but even dangerous:
a good analysis only states the facts about form, stylistic devices etc, stuff that can be approached with common terminology. Maybe it can give a brief assessment of the impact it has on the listener, but normally that's unwarranted. Now 8-bit-faggot and to a lesser extent 12 tone turn this upside down: they begin with the assumption of an intent the composer has and work out the way he did it. That's not only not helpful, that also overevelates the way the mind of a composer works. Compositions happen out of a workflow, nobody benefits from speculating about intentions the composer might or might not had. As I said, a good analysis focusses on facts, not on speculations.

Here are a few good channels that do it the way I think is useful:

the 3rd track is almost perfectly mixed maybe bring up the guitars a bit. track 1 is good too, but could maybe use the bass tone from track 3.

waht gear are you using btw? vsts, amp sims, etc.

this is what ive been working on for the past 24 hours. i want to know if its arranged well. (im probably gonna record new takes on everything, and i definitely will add a vocal track and a lead).

>>111999008
you dont need 2 of the same type of mic. you could use a condenser and a dynamic mic together, many people do this. you also dont need 2 mics, ive worked in studios where we set up a couple mics on a guitar and end up only using one of them in the final cut. and if you want a stereo image of your guitar, just record a double and hard pan those.

Any tips on getting a mix to sound more full and orchestral? I've got a fuck load of tracks all going and stereo panned to fuck all over the place with reverb and stuff on them, but somehow the mixes still sound less deep than a lot of professionally produced stuff. I'm using logic.
>>
>>112008472
Adding vocals and another lead element would break up the monotony, but it's better to ask if it's too repetitive after adding the new stuff in. I like it so far though, it sounds interesting.
>>
>>112009725
Don’t rely on panning for big

Depends on arrangement/spectrum of instruments
>>
>>112009855
then how do I get big if I don't pan. I'm using a fuckton of layered guitars, vocals, and synths. Going for ELO/yes level grandiosity at times.
>>
>>112009878
Maybe “fuckton” became counterproductive at some point

There’s not really any one “tip” or guide to give outside of acknowledging that tre spectrum needs to be filled, and there has to be some level of contrast, both in arrangement/mix and in the structure

I've recently taken it upon myself to learn about synths and synthesizing with Vital, and I'm having a blast. In trying to create all kinds of shit, I've recently tried to understand what happens/how to re-create the "wobblyness" of some C64 sounds.

Here's an example video of what I mean, it can be seen/heard most prominently on the third channel from like the 1:20-mark, but is featured on the second channel for almost the entire song.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ny743c32gPg&t=80s

Any resources to learn mastering?

>>112010301
your mix might have a lot of stuff in it but i can't really tell.
you've got separation issues, which can both come from problems at arrangement and problems at mix. note that you don't always have to have everything separated and audible all the time, but in this case you clearly don't want a soup.

for a start, mono your master.
you'll notice your balance changes and mix is pretty woofy sounding.
leave it mono try and get a balance first, just your your faders nothing else.
then go through your channels and decide what frequency range is most important for each (this is my mids, this is my sparkle, this is my low end) and start eqing other things out of the way. remember, you're not going to cut them away completely, just duck them to make room for other things. it's all about compromise.

also, don't make everything super wide - i'm not talking about panning i'm talking about stereo width on things themselves that comes from either widening, or reverb or chorus etc etc. intentionally make things narrower and then pan them into their spots otherwise shit will spill all over stuff.

>>112012330
during the mix? mostly yes. get a balance without it though then kick it in and do the rest of the mix.
>>
>>112012292
yes
>>112012330
depends
>>112012373
your ears
>>
>>112012330
really depends on the source and how compressed it already is. It's pretty common to have a VCA style compressor doing a few dB of gain reduction with a fairly low ratio (it varies from person to person, some like 4:1, some like 2:1 or even lower).
>>
>>112012394
>>112012395
>>112012400
>>112012429
okay im gathering from all of your answers that one can compress the master with the right settings and in the right situation. this leads me to believe i think im doing this right.

thanks, all
>>
>>112012292
Hyper? Ya
Been dead inside for like a week tho

>>112012429
This
I’m /loud/ and /distorted/ most of the time where extra compression on the master is pretty pointless, but for more dynamic material with less buss stuff I’ll usually have a single glue compressor with the input highpassed shaving off a couple dB
>>
>>112009176
Nice!
Listening to it again today and imo I think it's too repetitive. But you've got all the elements and texture in your hands. Just add other riffs and it's gonna be ok

it depends entirely on what you are doing as a producer, it has to fit the "sovl" of your project, there's nothing much else to it really, let's say that you make futuristic dark sounding music, you would have to come up with a name that fits the theme, also the producer is way more important than the name, you can have a lame name and it would still sound "cool" just because your music is good or you are famous

The sounds themself are fine, but the mix is dry. I think this needs more low end, nore space and louder drums. Add some reverb on the drums(not kick though) and instruments to achieve space.
>>

thanks!! i have no idea about mixing, but i will investigate on what you wrote and will try, how about sound variation, this is in four parts but i feel it being repetitive is a bit obvious, may you have any suggestions to switch it up more?
>>
>>112018172
sounds like sim music, its not bad but its not exactly much of anything either. Get better drum samples, these sound like they are from 2010. Humanize your melodies, learn to leave space. all these instruments sound very stock instrument-ish which on top of very robotic generic chords and melodies makes it sound intensely soulless

I think the main chord synth is pretty overbearing. Try turning it down and mid-cutting it a bit. I also think that the kick could be brought forward a fair bit. Add some hi-frequency click, not too much if you don't want too, mid cut it a bit, add some slow compression for punch, and turn it up.

The first one. I think the background elements are really nice, but I don't like the melody. It contrasts with the backdrop in an unpleasant way.

Big fan of this track. The lofi white noise adds a nice texture that I think helps to evoke the feeling of water. When I switched been the two I thought the lofi version have a feeling of a wet mist due to the white noise.

How would I go about fixing the minor ear rape that occurs at :45 in this song?
https://vocaroo.com/14NqGmYP20zg
I can't change the notes as that throws the feel of the song off and I don't want to turn the instrument down as it's intended to be the lead. I've never done any EQ adjustment before. Is that what I'll need to do here? What range do I need to cut off?
>>
>>112018172
a little more reverb wouldn't hurt imo. But you do, what 90% of posters here cannot do: you make your ideas easy to follow. Now make a song out of it, meaning make a contrasting section and write transitions
>>
>>112019036
>It contrasts with the backdrop in an unpleasant way.

Does it sound a bit ominous or is it just a melodic/harmony issue for you?

That's it.
>>
>>112018974
unironically great critique thank you bro
>>
>>112019260
Because I'm adding a fade-out at the end so the ending chorus has to be padded out a bit
But this song actually did turn out to be longer than I originally planned. I'll probably go back and work on verse 2 a bit more,

what are some ideas to modulate synth vsts to play them more expressively?
I have an expression pedal and I used to patch it to attack, but that somehow feels clunky and unintuitive. Patching velocity to attack feels better, but then you velocity is blocked for its natural use, being volume and filter cutoff.
>>
>>112019843
Everybody always forgets keytracking for some reason

Don’t just modulate THINGS do the THINGS modulating the THINGS
That’s my secrit shhhh
>>
>>112019843
same as real synths
I use aftertouch, expression pedal, and velocity, and the other guy is right, modulate the modulators
>>
>>112020214
>>112020283
thanks, that is actually good advice. So, for example, put the LFO depth on the Exp pedal? Can you give more examples?
What do you modulate with Keytracking? That mod source never clicked with me because it seems so unintuitive and mostly leads to uncontrolled sound garbage in my case.

Are there any free Mellotron VSTs that don't suck?
>>
>>112020575
Arturia has one, I played around with it for a bit and I thought it's okay... don't see the need of a Mellotron vst in the first place, though, because the Mellotron itself is nothing but an inferiour sampler
>>
>>112020746
That one is most definitely not free. And, I disagree, the instrument has a unique sound because of how it works, and I love that sound.
>>
>>112019260
I have the opposite problem of this, where I write 10 minutes of material and then have to cut more than I want every time

Maybe I should just embrace it and make 10 minute songs
>>
>>112019190
anon bby it's not hard to put a low pass EQ on a synth, just loop the abrasive part of the track over and over and play with the eq until the harsh sound goes away without taking out the body of the synth.

How did you make the lead synth anyways? I think it would sound good over dance music
>>
>>112022157
protip: roll off the low end, too. leave that frequency range open for the bass and kick.
>>
>>112020909
>the instrument has a unique sound because of how it works, and I love that sound.
it has obviously an analog sound bc it works with tapes, but isn't it pointless to emulate that digitally? Having a real Mellotron (weighing probably 200kg) in your studio might make a difference, but digitzing an analog sampler when the only advantage of it is being analog...??

The point is that I like how it sounds, I'm not sure what else to tell you. I'm looking for something that accurately emulates the interesting timbre and "imperfections" of the analog instrument.

And, I'm asking about free VSTs, do you really think I can afford a real Mellotron? Lmao

>>
>>112023114
I'm not even sure if that's possible. You can likely work your way to a shitty recreation with just synth settings, but making it actually sound authentic seems like it requires more advanced technology. From 20 minutes of googling, it doesn't seem like anyone has been able to create that sound completely digitally other than the people who programmed the expensive VSTs. The closest thing I found was someone who posted about recording themselves playing an instrument on a cassette tape, and then sampling the playback, which is a little bit ridiculous.

Thank you anon, much appreciated! I will give this a try when I mess with the mix again. In the mix there are two leads layering over one another. Both oscillate so they both move up and down about an octave as they play. One is an arpeggiator (ARP Swirl in Poizone) and while it is played in the lead range, it acts more like a background shimmer. The ear rape sound is the other lead (KBD Breather in Toxic Biohazard). Both of these use the same piano roll pattern (top pic). I also have 2 rhythms playing at once, the higher octave rhythm is the lower picture. It is played high enough that some of it's sounds can be mistaken as a lead.
It's a bit of a mess in the mix, but I think the tapestry of sounds is great. There's a lot to listen to, many voices to follow. Easy to get lost in it.

Yes, it is, but the qualities added to the sound by playing those samples on an actual physical tape are impossible to recreate from scratch using tools available in Ableton alone.
>>
any tips for someone who struggles with rhythms when it comes to chords? it feels like my chords move in a stale way if that makes sense.
>>
>>112024216
Do you know basic theory? If not, start there. Otherwise, do you use any chords that aren't the standard Maj, min, or power chord? I use a lot of Maj7/m7 for rhythms. Use dominant chords and secondary dominants to create tension that gets resolved. Learn how to use half diminished for climactic tension before resolving to your tonic (I think you can get away with resolving to your vi as well). Half the time I don't even write a progression. I just start plugging things in and let the music come out.
>>
>>112024214
what qualities? I think it would be not too difficult to get this analog tape sound right even with ableton stock plugins, but if you can't do that just actually find mellotron samples (won't be too difficult) and load them in the ableton sampler. Features like the tape motion won't be too difficult to work out then.
You're the one who wants a mellotron emulation, if I were you I would have started long ago to build me one myself

>find mellotron samples (won't be too difficult)

I just spent some time with one of the tape banks from the original versions of M-Tron, and Wavelab to try to open the bank as raw PCM audio, and anyone would be able to use the tape banks from that version (which were sampled from original Streetly tapes), dunno how they might have changed things in M-Tron Pro

Original M-Tron tape banks are 32-bit floating point PCM, 22.050kHz from what I saw, works out at around 9.5 seconds per sample (which is pretty close to what the original tape running time was) all contained in a single audio stream

Inb4 I aint clicking that shit but here's the original M-Tron "pcMIXEDCHOIR" tape bank, in the original cpt file used by M-Tron and also as a 32-bit float 22,050kHz wav, don't wanna trust the link? Just go find a copy of the original M-Tron then and you'll have some of the banks included there

>>112024328
One of the main things that's impossible to really capture is the inconsistency that the physical aspect of the analog instrument introduced. The tape 'warbling' is not a constant speed, and the same note can sound slightly different every time. This doesn't sound like it'd make much of a difference, but it really does, to the point where even the digital Mellotrons that the actual company is still making sound noticeably different because of this. When all the notes "warble" at the same frequency, it sounds much more uniform and has a lot less character. Here's a good example of someone playing the same thing first on an analog Mellotron and then on a digital one; skip to 3:19 if the timestamp doesn't work:
https://youtu.be/m7dl5_JNhGk?t=199

The paid VSTs like Arturia's actually *do* manage to capture this quirk of the analog instrument somehow, and they sound amazing. It's not something that an amateur sound designer can pull off at all. I might just have to suck it up and buy one of them, I guess, but that's gonna hurt.

bb I’m on your side for getting dedicated plugins but all you gotta dink’s make it polyphonic and alternate retriggering position come on
>>
>>112024937
these features you describe would be part of a mellotron sample, though. it's not necessary to emulate them with physical modelling
>>
>>112025002
All I'm saying is, if it were actually that easy to recreate the sound accurately, someone who's not a professional would've done it, and I have not been able to find any evidence of that occurring.
>>
>>112024979

Next step I guess would be a comparison of your sampler version and the original M-Tron plugin to see if GForce did much additional processing on playback. Still not the same as comparing with the real thing, simply because it literally isn't the real thing, but it did get favourable reviews on release and the more recent versions are still regarded as being pretty close.
>>
>>112025271
>simply because it literally isn't the real thing
what if it's better than the real thing
>>
>>112025483

I meant that M-Tron isn't the real thing, so any sampler version compared with M-Tron isn't a comparison with the real thing.

This whole discussion is revolving around accuracy so I guess better means more accurate, but people have their own preferences too and maybe the option to have less imperfection in the playback suits them more. That route would need access to the Streetly master recordings though, cos M-Tron at any rate is using production-tapes played on a key by key basis by an original Mellotron "Skeleton"

Is there any real benefit to physically moving to LA if you have the opportunity? Or can you do everything remotely and be just as "successful"?

are you at least somewhat successful? then it might do something for you. Otherwise, no.

I guess I was thinking about the "networking" aspect and collaborating with the right crowds. How successful should you be before considering that? What if you are physically hot as well?
>>
>>112031778
>What if you are physically hot as well?
that always helps
If you haven't networked in the place you live now, you won't magically do it in LA. You should be successful enough to have somebody waiting for you there with whom you can hit it off immediately. If you go there to knock on doors you will have a hard time.
I could be wrong, though, especially if you're really hot. But I think LA has a bigger history of broken than of fulfilled dreams.

rhythm is a valid part of music theory firstly, and in those beats there will be good ones that """"slap""" and shit ones that don't, which will depend a lot on the (basic) msuic theory.
same as pop songs with very basic chord structure. that's still music theory.

i just mean that when you make hip hop you probably have to approach it more like "rhythmic sounds" rather than approaching it with "playing harmonis and melodies". it's like those things are completely irrelevant in hip hop. all that matters is that there is a sound that evokes and emotion (sad, dark, happy or whatever) and that it's rhythmically interesting. otherwise it doesn't matter if the harmonies/melodies have any qualities.
what matters is rhythmic sound. as long as it isn't out of tune there doesn't even need to be harmonic progression or anything. it just has to be a rhythmic emotion.
which is totally different from pop/rock because there you need harmonic progression and melodies

This is a cute little waltz x march thing that I could see if some indie game that becomes known for its awesome soundtrack :)
Thank you for sharing.

I don't want to call it ambient, but maybe "vibe"?

Maybe unrelated to the thread at large, but does anyone have the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro's and could tell my how durable the cable is on these things?
I just got them, they were quite expensive (for my student budget) and i like them, and i would like to keep using them for a very long time.
But i have a history of ruining headphone cables, and the way my setup is put together the cable has to be attached to my PC in a way so it bends at a soft 240/120 degree angle(give or take) near the jack. It's not under much tension, but always a tiny bit because of the spiral cable.
Is it a fucked-up cable waiting to happen and should invest in a pre-amp or something to plug it into without the bending cable? Or it should be fine and i am just going schitzo mode?

Thanks mane, I’m feeling better today so it’s a music making day for the first time in like... a week or so

Please channel those vibes into... SONGS :)
>>
>>112035814
depends bro, if you have a history of pulling on the cable all the time then no cable will resist that shit, if you just leave it there then I doubt that it will break earlier
>>
>>112035814
good choice anon, I have the same and I like it. I'm always very cautious with the cable because it would fuck up the aesthetics if the spiral would wear off, so I got no issues

Buy a good synthesiser and spend a long time messing round on it
>>
>>112033959
Ambient is all about PROCESSING and EFFECTS so get really good at PROCESSING and make the EFFECTS really prettyyyy (or ugly if dark ambient)

Been recording some vocals for my solo album today and got done with this song. Do they sound like shit or is it workable? I haven't edited the different vocal tracks in sync yet so that might be a bit off in a few places. (I know the mix isn't great, it's getting sent off to someone else to mix later)

The secret to making music is amphetamine. I made this high on speed with no musical training. Then when sober I tried making something and isimply cant do it.

How do I get into sound design? I want to make synths for rnb, trap, hip hop style like Travis Scott and Don Toliver. Any tips? Like the synths that play the chords in their songs.
>>
>chords in one hand, melody in other. piano is ezpz wagmi
i imagine some might say... but it IS NOT ezpz! reeeeeee i can't even play Row, Row, Row Your Boat in a round between hands and ive been playing for years so i should just an hero at this point
>>
>>112034262
I think it's just knowing how an oscilloscope works and using it to see in detail what ur doing and tweak your sidechain compression settings
>>
>>112035814
just get an angled jack adapter

i used to live in his town. dude scams local producers into paying him money for "producer battles". producers in town will pay this dude $30 to play their beat in front of him and then he picks one of his friends as the winner. and then he's got a friend who scams rappers out of money for "soundkick placements" claiming he will get their songs on radio with it..

If you're not larping, how???
>>
>>112041399
why is it spread over two systems?
>>
>>112041399
im not larping. how am i supposed to have one hand come in and play the same thing in a canon/round? its impossible and i give up.
>>

wtf I just made this thread
I don't have a new OP ready yet
>>
>>112041628
damn you're retarded
>>
>>112041829
im not surprised that you can do it. its not in my bones and youre gifted.
tips on playing rounds between hands? i just cant keep the right hand going with its independent part once the left hand comes in and plays from the beginning while RH is at measure 5 in the example >>112041399
>>
>>112041967
Anon dude, you're not playing two different sections at once. Just get gud at one section than another. Take it slowly
>>
>>112042129
i appreciate the guidance although when you say
>not playing two different sections at once
thats what i wanted to do. of course after years of playing i could play this sheet music as written. but i figured it was a simple benchmark of hand independence to use the song for what it was made for - playing different sections of it simultaneously in a canon (a round). or were you saying i cant expect to do that challenge quickly?
>>
>>112033417
and the plantronics?
>>
>>112038500
Damn i wasn't feeling the open but that really sounds nice once it gets going. i don't have any criticism it's sounding great and fairly professional anon. good job!
>>
>>112042238
bro i just did that after trying for like 2 minutes you really are practicing wrong or something that's ridiculous. it's not a natural talent thing you just need to build a muscle memory on one hand then go on autopilot and deliberately control the other hand to play it. just practice doing the part on your left hand for a really long time until you've got it nailed then play another part on your right

Currently just learning songs, don't know whether that's a waste of time for my goals but I'm having fun. Just want to learn how to come up with stuff on my midi keyboard on the fly.
>>
>>112044886
Nah, you're good. By learning other songs, you're absorbing some of that vocabulary that you can borrow and tweak for your own original music, which will draw from everything you have ever heard and can imagine.

guitar rock, beach boys meets spoon/neil young, recorded at home trying to finish the mix. everything sounding balanced?

I need to learn how to use synths for ambience and background sound. Any help appreciated.
>>112046456
I'm not sure the lows are coming through properly but it might be my speakers. Sounds cool anyway.
>>
>>112046456
The low end on the track does annoy me a little, having the low frequencies on the bass playing for that long on the longer notes feels a little grading. Other than that I liked your track. It sounds competent.

>>112047364
Is there a specific question you had in mind? There's a lot about synthesis that makes it hard to give general advice other than recommending to watch those how-to videos on how to make specific sounds.
