    • Hey everyone, quick question. Trying to record a podcast. We have three microphones. We have them hooked into a Focusrite 18i8, which is a usb to my laptop. We record with audacity. I can not get the 3rd mic to get through, even though it shows up as working on the headphones and focusrite control. Audacity will not pick it up. What do I not understand, is this fixable?
    • Yeah, I should have said that although sometimes it sounds like loss of breath in the middle of a phrase, having them isn't necessarily a bad thing. So you should use your best judgment whether to keep some of them and whether to make some of them quieter.
    • I kinda liked those breaths in there, gave it a bit more emotion. But you are right, they were pretty pronounced, so I did an update where the breaths are pretty much reduced and hardly noticeable (I wanted to let them a tiny tiny bit in): - Jorito feat. JoyDreamer %26 Chris ~ Amaterasu.mp3  
    • Before I even say anything else, didn't @Kat suggest that you shorten the track to focus it more? @Garpocalypse also hinted at it. It looks either the same length or a bit longer. So, you should read back through the feedback more carefully, and note patterns in what people are saying.  Consider the issues previously at hand: mechanical sequencing, or lacking expression, or both too long for the amount of arrangement development it has too repetitive (similar partwriting with a lot of copy/paste, with swapped instruments) You should really ask yourself, "did I actually take these feedback into account, or do I just think I did?" Be honest with yourself and really think about it. Some newer composers lead themselves to believe that they took certain feedback into account, when they only believe they did and actually objectively did not. That, and it's been 2 years. Again, I haven't listened to this newer version yet, but I want you focus your attention on this concern and to think about this.
    • Since the big update of my remix will take much more time than expected and cause I haven't updated the track for about 2 years (but I have composed lots of new stuff since then) I want to share a little preview of the current state of my music project with ya.

      I haven't even done the ingame video for this one - but at least I've created a little slideshow with some fitting pics of the FF7 series.

      I know it's still a lot to do in things like variety in a track with this length - but I think there's already some really nice stuff in there and I kinda like to hear the track over and over again.
      Maybe give me a little feedback how you like the new stuff and the improved sound design in general.
      You can find some additional information for this new version in the upload description of the Youtube link.

      So, here's version 1.5 of my remix:

      (Because of the extreme length of the track I could "only" upload a 256 kbit/s file at my free Clyp account instead of my usual 320 kbit/s audio material there.)
