  1. Starter Headphones...

    Benefits of an audio interface? In general lower latency (the delay between playing something and hearing it, roughly), better quality when you want to connect instruments to record from (guitar, microphone, keyboard, what have you) and the convenience of, for example, a separate headphone out with volume control. There’s more of course, but for this topic these would be the highlights I think. Do you need one? Well, you can use whatever audio thing is in your computer, but it will be slower, have lesser audio quality, more prone to interference if it’s an onboard thing and just not as convenient. Let’s just say I am glad I got myself a decent audio interface early in the process
  2. Starter Headphones...

    Having said that, I also have a pair of Sony MDR 7506. They are very different from the DT880s: The Sony is closed backed, whereas the DT880 is semi open. This makes the Sony great for recording (because no sound leaks out), but when mixing the DT880 gives a much better representation of the stereo field and it makes appropriate panning and how it translates to speakers a lot easier. Both have a more pronounced top end, but the DT880 is better at the low end. That makes mixing your bass easier on the DT880 and it also makes the Sony sound more toppy. There is still bass enough to work with, but you have to work harder at it. In all fairness you could probably mix on both of them, once you've spent enough time with them and know their characteristics. But the DT880 make it a lot easier and are -to my ears- overall more pleasant to listen to. For any headphones, pick something that you like the sound of, that fits your budget and spend the time to get very familiar with how they sound, I'd say.

    I have the 250ohm version of the DT880s and use it without a headphone amp, just plugged it in to my audio interface. It doesn’t go as loud (which is a good thing IMO, wrt ear damage) but it has been working great for me for years in this setup. Would it sound even better with a headphone amp? Probably. Can you use it without one? Definitely.
  4. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    You're welcome! That's what PRC is about, right? To learn and grow, and feedback has helped me a lot so it's good to return it
  5. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    Whoop whoop! This free round was a great excuse to (nearly) finish a track I have had on my mind for a loooooong while and to join the compo after a long hiatus. In other news, I submitted my source for the next round, of one of the greatest soundtracks from last year (IMO). Hope you guys have fun with it
  6. I need to know if this is normal...

    ^ That has to be the most awesome comment I’ve seen here in quite a while! Kudos for sharing!
  7. Keyboard connectivity

    You did try messing with the 'to phones' and 'to main mix' buttons? Apart from broken cables, I wouldn't know what it could be. It should be as easy as plugging in the cable (from keyboard out to mixer in), setting the volume level on the mixer to somewhere in the middle and you should get sound.
  8. Keyboard connectivity

    Hm, you're not doing anything wrong, from what I can make out. I am not familiar with that particular mixer, but since it's a USB one it might have software you need to install and run? The only other thing I can think of is that maybe you forgot to turn up the volume knobs on the mixer? Normally, each (non-rca) input has its own volume knob and probably also EQ.
  9. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    Yeah, 't was a good excuse to finish this track I started 3 years ago. Glad I did, and I think I'll add some polishing to it later. Too bad you didn't finish it, I liked what I heard. Hope you get around to finish it it; I'll collab ya if that's what's needed to make it happen
  10. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    I uploaded a thing. A thing I will probably get back to after compo, but I ran out of time
  11. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    I am pretty sure I will have something by the deadline, things are coming along nicely and I feel inspired
  12. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    Tempted... not sure if I have the time, but it would be a good excuse to finish off some more stuff
  13. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    I've worked with @JohnStacy on some tracks for Secret of Mana before. For one he provided cornet, for the other a full orchestral brass section (sans tuba). His primary instrument is (jazz) French horn, so he'd probably be great on this. I can recommend him, and can even try to point him here
  14. OCR03652 - Secret of Mana "Whispers"

    Don't worry, I am used to not everybody liking remixes with lyrics and vocals in them, but that won't stop me from making others if I feel like it. Thanks for the constructive criticism and tone (also from others in this thread), it's better than the sometimes vocal complainers that ask me how I dare ruin cult classics with vocals. See you in the next vocal track
