  1. New guitars

  2. Free Online Conference for Songwriters

    Writing a song is that even possible? Some so called songwriters wont even bother with the music but buy it from someone. If a song doesnt come to you more or less by itself its not a song its a product.
  3. Pro or homemade both can be good or bad it is the song itself that is important. If it is a good song it does not need many tracks and instruments. I also think the aproach playing and recording it live is the best way to go. You probably can use your laptops builtin soundcard cause almost every modern computer have ok soundcards these days. Then you need something like a small cheap Behringer mixer and hook it up to your computers audio input. Those mixers sound pretty ok and do have mic preamps, almoast always at least two per unit. There are lots of good recordingsoftware out there but choose one that works and looks as close as possible to a real mixer. This will make it easier and probably speed things up in the beginning when you start out with this. Its also the cheapest best quality setup and still very usefull when you get more advanced. Condencer mics that work ok and sometimes even very good doesnt have to be so exspensive either. place your mic as close to your instrument as possible and try to figure out so that it covers the "space" of the sound you wanna capture and start playing or singing. Watch the meeter on the mixer and slowly increase the gain knob till it is the closest you can to 0 db without clipping. Hit rec in your daw and youre recording, easy peasy. If you have access to a mac and Logic 9 and filmed it with your phone just drag the video in to Logic. Logic at least Logic 9 can separate audio from video so you can synch up your reording with help from the audio from the video. Then you would eport your song out of Logic with the audio track you recorded in Logic instead of the track from the cam/phone. Or you could buy a soundcard that works with your mobile phone or ipad etc etc. They do produce avesome video and sound today but the mics are often not so good and the built in compression is nothing you normally want in a music recording. Behringer also have the Istudio, its a recording unit for an Ipad? I got one and I demoed it on youtube but in Swedish.

    Sorry but there is no way to be sure an amatuer could not do it just as good. You see making music it is nothing like going to the doctor at all. And the concept quality is not cut in stone when it comes to music it varies a lot depending on who is listening to the piece. In my case I am a professional carmechanic and lots and lots of amateur carmechanics throughout the world beat me in fixing cars so... Mostly cause they have the time they need at hand but still.... when a pro carmechanic works against the clock so the customer gets it in time as promised. When I go shopping for food I hear pro music in the speakers over the frozen meat counters and to be honest with you even if it is recorded and processed proffessionally all the way through to a finnished product it sucks so bad. You can get to hear lots of different genres there but its the same it becomes some kind of wallpaper or something at the best and I do not think about it as music at all. I do not want to be rude or anything but the pro concept is just not my thing, it does not really say much besides that there is money involved. And I like amatuer music even the music I make myself Music should be fun not comercial. Check out this Chinese music video

    Why is it important to make sure you work with professionals Mylene?

  8. Soundcloud in trouble?

    That is why I never stopped using Sound click.
  9. Testing Youtube Live

    (I tried to update the first post I made but I cannot so I do in this post instead.) I am testing out mic placements for guitar sound broadcasting live to Youtube live and how people would experience it visually and most important for us if it sounds ok by watching from a post in a thread on internet forums. I found out they all link to youtube anyway so that goal is reached lol. I know I left this thread in a mess so Im trying to bring some order in it. When Im finally done in a few weeks hopefully I will ask the mods to delete it and try to do a short live demo where I play a couple of tunes to test it out. My goal is to be able to make and playback music live over the internet and anyone listening would hear the same as I do if they have reasonably good consumer sound systems at hand. I guess that would be really handy when people collab over the interenet too wouldnt it? I like to collab anyway so I mostly do it for me lol I mean if somebody wants to see whats going on here and why lol. On handheld devices it will pretty much always lack bas and sound very "trebly". Not sure if that is a word but its like this, anyone listening on an ipad will only hear the highest notes from lets say a guitar. So they hear pretty much only the high E and B and G a little of the D string and then it starts to get muddy if you dont have supergood guitars, nice sounding rooms, cool, nice mics preamps etc etc when you record the stuff. You got to count stuff like that in so thats why I bring it up. You might have to scroll forward a little on the vids in this thread cause they are just testruns to find a good sound for live broadcasting to the internet. Most of them suck soundwize too anyway but I keep them cause I forget what I play cause I often make it up as I go on these broadcasts. Sorry about the crappy playing but the guitar is tuned in G and I am having a bit of a hard time trying to find out how the chords are fingered out and suck at it so far. I think probably this then should work as the first post so Im gonna post/replace the progress videos updates (if I make progres that is) in this reply. I hope this is ok that I borrow the forums for this if not please get back to me. (I deleted some posts in threads here. Sorry but I need to fix up my english a little I use way to many words when I try to describe how I have experienced you can go about to fix problems you run in to or anything actually. Way to many words here too.)

  11. Chicks for a couple of secs is ok but not the whole video through
  12. The new look

    It is just that I am frustrated over that everything computer or internet or phone/tablet related gets changed and updated all the time. Sooner or later that means you will have to upgrade your hardware. I personally have a bunch of very good computers that wont work on the internet today cause they cannot use the latest required software of all the sorts you need for it. They still work (and very good) for multichanell pro audio recording mixing and mastering even som light video work. As a user here I could not see any problems what so ever with the old look and the only new feature I have seen so far is that it actually works to broadcast live to the threads now. But I take your word for it that this is easier to keep rolling.
