Hi Scott,

I would like to see some guidelines on setting up a "studio." I make an assumption that many of us, my situation also, are using a large livingroom as the studio. Microphone placement would be included as well as the pairing of pre amps and Sonar. Any and all information on a better sounding studio situation would be well received, at least from my point of view.
I imagine a pre amp for a Neumann U87 might differ from a pre amp for an MXL V89, and so on...
Thanks for asking.

Here's another thought, that sort of pairs with my earlier point. Might we have a section, on your site, where those of us having good success with the pairing of equipment might place that information for all to see?

Hey Steve,

Thanks for your feedback! I appreciate it.

We actually started covering microphone placement in the last two issues. Did you get issues 43 and 44?

More studio setup info will definitely get some coverage. Good idea.

We also already have a section here in the forums for talking about recording gear. Is that what you meant about a section on the site?

Thanks!
Scott

I do not think I got those two issues, but will look for the.
The section I was referring to be more like-I jut purchase a TLM 103 and plugged into the V 100 and was not pleased with the result. I used an "X" amp and the result was terrific. Perhaps I might ask for a recommended amp for the TLM 103. Just a place for successful paring of equipment. Just a thought.

Hey Steve,

If you missed any issues of the newsletter, go here:
http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/issues.asp

Then type in your email address (the same one you used to subscribe to the newsletter) and you have the issues emailed to you again.

Also, for topics about equipment, those can definitely be posted over in the Recording Equipment and Instruments section of the forum at:
http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/discuss/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=11

Thanks!
Scott

Hey Jim...

Cool, I'll add that to the list as well.

Are you using any other music software that I can look into covering?

Thanks!
Scott

Sonar is my multi-track package. I've used it for so long and gotten so comfortable with it I don't even look elsewhere anymore. Same with SoundForge for audio editing and Vegas for video. Those are the principle packages I use for everything A/V related.

Of course there are tons of applications and about a gazillion plugins I use from time to time, but I don't typically find their usage much of an obstacle.

Komplete, Amplitube, Line 6, Auto-Tune and Melodyne Editor, all get some minimal usage.

Getting comfortable with pitch correction and it's proper use is a good topic. So is studio organization - track lists, archiving... Need to be able to find stuff.

Just some ideas...

-Jim

Thanks, Ed! Another great idea... added to the list.

Yeah, I definitely plan on doing more Sound Forge coverage. You don't hear much about it these days, but it's still the best audio editor out there.

I've always been aware of this but learned even more about impedence matching between mics and pre's recently - like the past few days, with a new mic purchase I made. I'll have a full post on the whole thing in a couple of days. The experience has been a "smack in the face", eye-opening kind of thing.

Good one, DS! Not only mics and pres, but guitars and pres. As such, re-amping can be quite an experience - good and bad. I'd say just impedence matching/mis-matching, period. It can be an eye opener.

There are a lot of "senior" musicians still working and playing. How about a review of portable "large screen" monitors to use instead of printed sheet music (ipads are just too small.) The monitor should be able to rest on a piano/keyboard or a music stand and be in vertical position instead of the usual horizontal position. Discuss page turners for reading pdf or tiff sheet music, and perhaps there is a screen scrolling software that is more precise than Cakewalk.

I have used Cakewalk since vs6 to produce midi files for backup and play-along. Currently I have 8.5 producer and haven't seen the need to upgrade yet. CW scrolling screen does not perform the same as Finale and some other software but I am comfortable with the software and Cakewalk has a better visual than other scrolling screens.

Perhaps there is a way to lock the screen so that it does not drop notes as it starts over from the right to left?
Thanks, David

A section on SONAR X2 Videos to help people new to DAW, like me, for training purposes. It would be nice to accumulate links of Vids, on your site, to be able to reference. I know you have links of Vids already but can you update them on a regular basis. - Stuart
