I like to use a lot of analogue modelling plug-ins when I’m mixing, but while I like the sounds I’m getting in general, I always seem to end up with too much noise. What’s the best way to tackle this problem?
I’m the sound engineer with a group called Flyte, who are heading out on a mini headline tour of 150-500 capacity venues next month. I have the chance to acquire a little digital mixer such as a Behringer X32 rack, but I’m not sure if it would be worthwhile.
Paloma Faith’s new song ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ has been recorded out of tune by about 50 cents. This means that unless you have a keyboard that can be detuned, you cannot play along! What would be the reason for doing this?
If a song is in A, you’ll have lots of 440Hz, 220Hz, 110Hz, 880Hz, and so on — but so what? What are you supposed to do with that information? And what about all the harmonics? And all the other notes in the key of A, and all their harmonics?
