Re: Gear Acquisition Syndrome

Hi All, like many of you, I've been stuck at home and finding more time to work on music while sheltering in place. I've now caught a pretty bad case of GAS! Here's what I've been thinking about: New Interfaces: Audient D14 - been into this for a while. I like that it is fairly compact with 2in/2out...

Can you explain the optional challenge?

Where is Brody when you need them to write Shutdown as a tribute to Tom Petty's Breakdown.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Zero "This is Fine"

Just finished listening to all the songs and there are many really good ones. I don't envy the judges having to whittle this excellent group down. Lots of folks I don't recognize. My ear was particularly grabbed by a number, including the Lowest Bitter. Here are a couple of notes for the two songs I...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

Since Jon Eric is also in Nur Ein, I'd like to point out how awesome Chewbacca Bra's Dinga Da Donda is, how it rules this challenge, and how is it still one of my favorite songfight songs I've had a hand in making.

Re: Near enough to perfect... (Bent Straight reviews)

Just curious, are you applying high pass filters to remove any subsonic mud on tracks with no significant bass component? (I'm reading Mixing Secrets by Mike Senior, and such questions are on my mind). Just wanted to pull this out in case folks skip your BSS review. This is the number 1 first lesso...

Sampleson are giving away a B3 VSTi. I've got a couple of others from them that I use quite a bit. They sound really good!

Web based collaboration tools

Hi All, I just saw that Spotify has an online collaboration site called https://www.soundtrap.com where you can make music alone or with others. They have a 30 day trial. I've also seen www.jamkazam.com as a place where you can play music together online. Anyone tried either of these or have other s...
