Re: Hearing dangers during sound desing

Don't listen too loud, don't listen too long and definitely check back what you did a day later. When the Aphex Aural Exciter came out there was a LOT of albums where they didn't do that - bit by bit they turned that darn thing up so much during the mixing session that it hurts ;)

Re: multiple midi in /out

So you added two EMI and selected the MIDI out for each synth in each EMI? And now you have two lanes playing notes but only one synth is playing?

Then are you sure that the one synth receives on the correct channel? What happens when you switch the synths MIDI inputs? Or do they have USB MIDI?

Re: multiple midi in /out

"When I'm playing two synths I'm only playing one synth" - classic demt xD How did you connect the hardware synths? Do you get MIDI out and no audio in? Do you even want to get the audio back in Reason? Maybe you're not having all channels record ready - by default Reason only sets the selected sequ...

Re: Orchestration VST

MOTUs "Symphonic Orchestra" is kinda cool. It's a bit oldschool (not thousands of volume layers etc.) but it sounds nice to me, has most stuff you'd need for Orchestration (plus a bit more) and isn't too expensive - by now it should be even cheaper. Plus you can run it standalone alongside Reason wi...

Re: Is there any real value in buying hardware?

Hah, nah I guess it was me subconsciously categorizing piano players as "proper musicians" and synth and guitar players as... not ^^ ..which of course is complete nonsense and either comes from insecurity for not being a good piano player or from the idea that theres somehow a "proper" way to do mu...

Re: Is there any real value in buying hardware?

OTOH, if you approach guitar from a piano player’s perspective, then there is one tone, period. All others are sacrilege, and no sample can ever come close to how the “real deal” feels, now or in any foreseeable future. [emoji6] Well, let's not play as if ALL great musicians are that esoteric :) A ...

Re: Laurel vs Yanny.

I can also hear both, at first I only heard "Yanny" because I played it on my laptop speakers. The "Laurel" information seems to be in the lower frequency regions. It's a great example for how our brain colors the sound we hear HEAVILY. :) Edit: Btw, when working with audio you have this happening s...

Personally, I got the best ideas, when I asked people directly what they think. It's good to take up and adapt to what I agree with, and like. That's why I also check out modern (or from any time) music, and grab and build-in what I find great sounding.
Any examples? :)

Re: TIDAL accused of deliberately faking Kanye West and Beyoncé streaming numbers

You seem to be 100% certain its the others fault? How about you ask something like: "What exactly do you mean by 'how management works'? How do you see it?" My answer to that is: It could be that I'm using the wrong words, but I said earlier, I clearly have communication problems (not just because ...

Sound wise? Maybe not, well, not at all. Well that is kind of my point. I didn't say this was good or bad. It's "bad" if you're a scrooge and rather build your own house than pay somebody to do it. It's "good" if you just want to be able to put out amount X of money and be done with it - no matter ...

Normen. Try to look at this from other sides. Well I did, there isn‘t a single RE where I don‘t know what it does or that I couldn‘t replace with another device or plugin. There is nothing unique about any of them and guitar pedals are the best example for useless „more“ you could have given. That ...

Re: TIDAL accused of deliberately faking Kanye West and Beyoncé streaming numbers

I enjoy creating music, but I don't enjoy it if there's no-one to make it for. I couldn't disagree more. Like 180 degrees at 180 mph. You said, paraphrasing, if there's no audience then it's too much like work. Quite the opposite. If you're only making music for someone else (ie for a paycheck, for...

Doesn't this question go deeper? I mean how DO you know that you're not just buying yet another subtractive synth, yet another EQ, yet another combination of effects you already have :) Most effects until the 90s/2000s were a combination of level modulation, phase shifting and linear and nonlinear d...
