Re: Vocal Normalizing

+1 All the above

A compressor is possibly the most important effect to understand with vocals. I tend to lather it on all my vocal tracks (a bit frowned upon by some) . When used right, it makes the vocal pop out in the mix and evens out the voice.

Re: Help on focusrite scarlett 18i8

There is also an ipad config file you can download and install via PC or Mac. It will work fine without it, but it optimizes some things that have escaped me now :) Anyhow, fantastic unit. I've had mine for 5 months and have recorded 4 simultaneous audio sources (one going through Audiobus ) into Au...

Re: Ultra-high resolution audio coming soon

Ok, after checking out the video and the site I'm more clear on what this is.. I probably should have done that before before commenting :oops: It seem like Pono has many aspects including lossless compression formats and very high quality DAC. These are things I can certainly get excited about. Sti...

Re: Ultra-high resolution audio coming soon

I'm a bit skeptical of these very high sample rates. I doubt any human can tell the difference between a sample rate of 96 and 192. I believe that even 44 is honestly good enough for the pickiest ears.

It smells a bit like snake oil and gold plated cables to me :)

Re: First album, all done with auria!

Great stuff! Has a Blink 182 kinda thing going

Great balance on the mix. Well written songs. Tells us a bit more about the recording... Obviously live drums right?

Re: Recent update causes Auria to crash

I had exactly this behavior (crash on project open). After fixing the IR files on the convolution reverb, all problems went away and it seems 100% again

Re: Dark acoustic

Thanks @BobAmser :) As for the vocal processing, there really wasn't much so will be easy to break down: - vocal was recorded on an AKG perception condenser into my Focusrite 18i8 into Auria - I used the channel strip compressor with a 2:1 ratio. Attack and release down the middle - I used the PSP m...
