  1. I haven't posted here in a while. Hopefully this is still the place to post equipment trading / sales. I am selling a pair of new grados prestige for $175. I bought them for $200, but it was an impulse buy. I read a bunch about how great they sounded, and admittedly, the sound great, but I don't need them, and I desperately need the cash (paypal). I still have the box and everything. Free shipping. Edit. New offer $150. I see there is a new version called the 225i which apparently isn't any different, but there have been no takers anyways, so I'm lowering the price.
  2. Thank you so much this is driving me nuts! I am singing the top part but really it's played with a fast arpeggio on the guitar. http://soundcloud.com/westsidestory552/guitsong-1
  3. where can I watch this again? My friends and I were getting nostalgic talking about it, and we really wanted to hear the "I'm sweet tooth" line again haha.
  4. oh. No don't have it . Dang. Well at least I got reassured that I'm not crazy out of all of this.
  5. So I got storm drum 1 intakt and I am playing it through kontakt 4. It sounds pretty good, but it's mostly unusable. All the other sample libraries I've gotten have instruments or single hits. All it has are loops?? Like I hold down "C" it's one loop, hold down "C#" it's another similar loop. Now I read that they are sliced wav files, but I can't figure out how to access that feature. It has some really full cinematic hits and ethnic drums that I would like to use one shots of. *This is the closest I could get to solving it. edit: I mean I couldn't figure out how to get that red bar to show up that the guy was talking about. I also got the loop to slice to 1/16's but it's not quite what I was looking for as I miss out on the reverb tail of the big hits. Thanks so much! *http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/showthread.php?p=738078
  6. just angle them upward to your ears. Don't both raising them to ear level. Same thing right? I also said screw the monopads and rested mine on top of the foam packaging they came with. I A/B ed it out of curiousity and it prevented rattling of my desk. Not sure if the expensive foam does anything else special, but I'm more worried about my untreated drywall room acoustics than the foam under my speakers (or at least I think I am??)
  7. All I know is I usually end up cutting around 200-400 and severely cutting under 200
  8. ok i got it. thanks a lot. It looks really ugly as the audio file visually stretches around while it is playing and covers up parts ahead of it, but the sound is what I want. I fixed the visual by dragging it to the bottom so it wouldn't cover up stuff to the right. edit: and also it doesn't play back unless I start at the beginning of the audio. I would eventually know how to fix this but good enough for now. Just annoying to start at the beginning of the track every time when what I'm interested in is at the end i figured out 0 is fast forward which helps. Is there a rewind?
  9. I recorded a lengthy vocal take and ended up slicing some useable parts out with the playlist slice tool. Is there a way I can now make this slice it's own audio sample. As of now, all the slices are the same sample, just starting and ending at different points. I already worked around it, but it would be nice to know if there was a quick button for it or how you would do it. Thanks edit: ah - make unique button. Yay
  10. I got a line 6 tonedirect or toneport, and I absolutely love it. It was $80. This was two years ago. Might be something better now. It has a 1/4 input. Comes with excellent tones for guitar, bass, and vocals. You can also get the UX1 or w/e if you need phantom power. edit: not sure about the wobbling. Wobbling would have nothing to do with integrated audio if it's the volume going up and down. Or at least I don't think. Check if you have a limiter on the master track and everything is coming into it too loud. I did a lot of mixing on integrated audio until I got into recording guitar and vocals. Integrated audio has only two problems that I'm aware of: 1. it's right next to all your other computer equipment and suffers from noise (hiss hiss hiss) 2. it might not be as fast as you would like. You'll hear glitching sounds if you have a lot of stuff going on (rip rip rip)
  11. ok I recorded it on a straight tempo and then moved it into the accelerando. It's not ideal cause of the stretching artifacts but this should work until someone can help me
  12. Im trying to record audio while it speeds up tempo. It records fine. THen when it plays back, it is not what I played. FL studio automatically stretches the audio "to fit" but I dont want it to stretch because I played it to fit. Thanks!
  13. Is there a VST that can put sounds behind the listener, in front of them, below them, above them, etc? I just heard a very cool axe body spray ad on pandora, and I wanted to do a similar effect in music. My budget is $50. Maybe $150 if it really works well and is amazing. Thanks. I searched KVR and didn't find anything. I found something by spinaudio but they are no longer in business. edit: Just found something called wave arts production suite which includes "panorama 3d panning". I am trying ou the demo now
  14. try out reaper. Commercial License is a bargain at $200 something You will never go back because you have to. You will go back because you want to.
  15. I am selling my soundcard. Great for a beginner looking to get his/her foot in the door. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220578061982#ht_1847wt_1165
  16. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220578061982#ht_1847wt_1165 selling a cheap m-audio 2496. Perfect for someone looking to get their foot in the door.
  17. I have to admit I am a sucker for sub $100 on ebay. I recently picked up an $80 AWOWO drum kit. After spending a solid 3 hours programming it to work with the computer, I rigged it up to some killer samples and started goofing around with random bits and with supporting instruments. So here we go - The piano and electric guitar are $500+ each, but everything else was done with cheapies. I've been really impressed with the bass and violin for how inexpensive they were although the bass has the action set up for hercules, so I need to lower it down. The violin sounds like absolute shit by itself, but then again, I think virtuoso solo violin players sound like a screeching cat unless they are playing in the mix with something else - then they sound truly amazing. Sadly, I am not amazing at it; the violin is harder than shit to play. It took like 40 takes to get that easy part right. I'll probably put my time and energy into electric guitar and singing. Cheapie acoustic Cheapie electric violin Cheapie drumset (The rhythm is hard: sometimes it delays a tiny bit and other times I am sucking) Cheapie Bass Singing is free (well I have a cheapie microphone too)!! But I didn't sing on this one. Maybe soon!! http://tindeck.com/listen/jokq edit: Once I bought a clarinet off ebay, but it was absolutely unplayable. I made the mistake of getting the fancy white one instead of getting the generic cheapie. I've heard the same story about the bright colored violins. I've heard they are god awful. Mine is the standard maple?? color.
  18. I've noticed that there are lots of sound type things that have a switch that makes the sound better. Like xi-fi sound blaster cards, bose headphones with enhance switch, or panasonic headphones with the enhance switch. Anyways, I can't speak for what the other ones do, but I tried the panasonic headphones, and when I switched on the switch, everything sounded absolutely amazing. What exactly is going on when this switch is turned on? The only way I can explain it is everything sounds better. My other question is why aren't mixing engineers doing this to effect to their tracks? Wouldn't that make everything sound better, or is the effect unique to those headphones - like it flattens out that headphone's specific frequency response problems? Please inform me of what is going on - thanks
  19. ok I really appreciate it. I am new to creating music as I said, and I've found that certain things escape my notice just because I get used to hearing them. Thanks a lot, and i'll post another update soon. That heavy thrash section is in 4/4 but the drums and bass are accenting 6/8 and it was really hard for me to stay on beat on guitar. I'll have to tighten that up quite a bit. It is a bit sloppy atm. I think I took too many liberties to show off like the bass solo, add 9 and diminished distorted guitar chords, and should just stick with what I know has a better chance of working - at least until I get more experience song making.
  20. I am working on a fantasy metal type song. I suck and am a newb with music so I would love love love some critique and help with this WIP. It just doesn't sound very good and I don't know what to do. Thanks. http://www.tindeck.com/listen/sryx
  21. I think part of the problem with my understanding of compression is that I have been using ez drummer for my drums. I get the feeling they aren't very good samples? Could anyone give a quick explanation of what makes a good sample? Is it room acoustics and equipment? Are good samples pre-mixed by someone with golden ears? They don't sound like real drums to me. I listened to a demo of addicting drums and I think this is a very good program or at least better at my budget level. I am going to start saving for it. My three genres are metal, pop, and rock. I also D around with boogie woogie and funk, but nothing I feel I need to spend money on. Good investment to get AD?
  22. and I would demand a 128 bit 1024khz wav copy because there is just too much information loss from 16 bit 48khz wav
