Re: Auria + Positive Grid's new Final Touch mastering App??

I bought Audio Mastering, just to buck the trend. I have found the interface pretty confusing, but was pleased with the extra boost and sparkle it provided. To be frank, I only spent about 10 minutes each on two tracks and better results could probably be achieved with more effort :lol: https://soun...

Re: Active Auria Artists Demos/Masters

Hi Folks, Well, it may have taken me longer than most (I ain't no techie) but I've finally got a couple of tracks I'm reasonably happy with. The first is Pop Kid which you may recognise as a (hopefully) more polished version of the song at the end of my Auria competition video. I found this really h...

Re: Romundo island by cumberlandite

Made me smile - music and political satire work well together. 8)

I've just listened on the iPad speakers, but it sounds like a good production to me. More proof of the improvement in what can be achieved by relatively cheap and easy to use gear. Well done.

Re: Plugin Recommendations

Cheers. I guess I'll give it a go :D By coincidence, echo / delay was mentioned in a fun video I saw on YouTube of Andy Johns talking about sound engineering. It's a promo for drum samples, so leans in that direction, but he covers lots of engineering tips. Reminds me of the roadie from Spinal Tap :...

Re: Plugin Recommendations

OK, so here goes the question that proves my ignorance...

What is an echo for? I understand what it does, and I use delay a lot with my guitar playing, but when / why / how would you use one instead of a reverb?

Plugin Recommendations

Hi folks, I have an iTunes voucher burning a whole in my pocket and wondered what people would recommend as my next plugin(s)? I have Pro-Q, Old Timer and Micro Warmer already, all of which have become pretty indispensable to me, so I figure I'll get use out of another :wink: I record rock / pop / i...

Re: Music app blog feature

Had a couple of listens - top banana! Really do enjoy that track - my kind of music. As someone getting into recording, I have an idea of the amount of work involved in getting a song like that finished, so well done for reaching the end. Good advice I heard on a (slightly odd, but quite interesting...

Re: How to set up a Vocal Mixing Workflow in Auria?

That's about what I do, so it's probably a rubbish workflow :lol:

Give it a go, and change it if it doesn't work for you.

Re: ETA on MIDI integration?

Yup - I have no problems connecting the kit and I currently use SampleTank, but it's not without it's hassles and it would be nice being able to do it within Auria.

Being able to do it multi track would be the dream as it opens up the possibility of using Drumagog.

Re: ASK THE RECORDING EXPERTS

Hi, I've tried ipad with Quartet and I just avoided the Maestro app and just used it straight into Auria. As to recoding on track 3 - this seems more to do with which inputs are 'armed' for record on Auria. I found that if I was recording from only one input, Auria would pick up the input from whate...

Re: Irig mic and auria

I have the iTrack Solo and it's great. Good for guitar and headphones / monitors as well as providing a good quality mic pre amp with phantom power. I run mine with an SE Electronics SE2000 condenser microphone (about £70) and get really top quality results :P I guess a condenser may be a bit sensit...

Re: ETA on MIDI integration?

Does this mean that I'll be able to trigger drum samples from my midi drum kit? If so, you'll make this particular drummer very happy :lol: :D :)

Re: Mixing Vocals

Agreed, Mark. Great advice. In terms of the question, I have yet to use the Aux sends at all! I will do next time ;-) I do most things on each channel. If, for example, a background vocal deliberately gets louder as it goes along, you won't want that compressed much or at all. A main vocal (dependin...
