  1. http://sionar.pbwiki.com/f/Final%20Fantasy%20XIII%20Theme%20on%20Piano.mp3 Originally from the FFXIII trailer http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=10870&type=mov&pl=game This is like the first draft of the remix. This recording was a recording of a keyboard; later I'll play it on my grand piano. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
  2. I recommend the Casio Privia series. The sound quality is pretty decent, but there is still a bit of electric piano feel to the sound. The keys are weighted, with the lower keys being heavier than the top keys to imitate a real piano. These electric pianos are definitely within your budget, and I would consider them your best buy. They go for around 100-800 dollars depending on which model you get. However, they all have the same touch and sound, so there is no decrease in quality for getting a cheaper model, just decrease in functionality. Right now, I'm using a Yamaha P140 and I have to say
  3. I totally agree with you. The last time the piano was tuned was during the summer, and it may need another tuning again. Theres nothing like the sound of a freshly tuned piano =). I feel like the production is not up to par with the other piano remixes on this site. I can't get the recording to be any louder without getting clipping. Is there any way to get around that? I've never noticed that the ending was short. Thats just how the song ends in the original version, so it always seems natural to me. But I guess what you're saying makes sense, a more thorough ending could do the song some j
  4. 2 generic mic stands, 2 xlr-xlr cables, 2 m-audio nova condenser mics, and an m-audio mobilePre usb
  5. http://www.ocremix.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=98426 The volume is too low, and I can't turn the gain very high. If I turn it any higher I get severe amounts of clipping from playing loud. Is it something that I'm doing wrong or not doing, or is my equipment just not good enough?
  6. http://sionar.pbwiki.com/f/Chrono%20Trigger.mp3 I'm working on this. I need suggestions for names. Edit - http://sionar.pbwiki.com/f/Chrono%20Trigger%203.mp3 Slightly better quality. This is my first attempt at recording something, and all my equipment is brand new. Any comments/suggestions, guys?
  7. Ahhh.... its too late, since I already placed my order on zzounds. All the equipment will arrive on the 27th-29th. If the M-Audio stuff really isn't usable, I'll just return it and go with your suggestion about the EMU 0404 and the VTB-1. Once again, thanks for the comments. I truly appreciate them. EDIT: Zzounds DOES have a return policy right?
  8. Okay, so this is what I think I'm going to get: Rode NT1A Studio Condenser Microphone (New, Matched Pair, With SM1 Shock Mounts) - $500 M-Audio MobilePre USB Interface with Microphone Preamp (New) - $150 OnStage Short Microphone Stand with Boom (New, Black) x 2 - $70 Shure C25J XLR-XLR Hi-Flex Microphone Cable (New, 25 Foot) - $32 Any suggestions, anybody?
  9. Thanks for the advice. I'll really consider getting two mics. As for the preamp and mixer, and phantom power, do you know where I can get buy them, or have any recommendations for which ones to buy? And for the cables, do I need XLR-XLR or XLR-1/4''?
  10. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone could give me the lowdown or provide me with the links on setting up a home recording studio. I have been searching around the forum, and been doing some researching online, but I haven't found any definitive answers on how to set it up yet. I wish to record live piano. I have a minigrand located in a large living room, and my computer is a 3.00ghz, 1 gb ram with an sb audigy 2 card. The microphone that I'm willing to purchase is one Rode NT1A microphone, since i have limited funds and don't know if I should buy another one. Now, from some research I see that that
