    New/very old personal folk/pop composition

    Yes. I have effectuated your suggestions. It's sounds better, I agree. Now all I have to do is record a better vocal rendition, but that will have to wait as I had a small vocal accident a few days ago while working on a new song without being adequately warmed up. When I have completed a new...

    New/very old personal folk/pop composition

    Hello! Here's a new mix I did this afternoon, putting your suggestions to the test. It's a once-in-a-lifetime mix as I use no automation. I like the new song personally and I will do some vocal work to make it even better. Maybe even a bit of timing work with regard to the strings, etc. What do...

    New/very old personal folk/pop composition

    Mr. Grumpy Thank you so much for the generous sharing of your intelligence, professional understanding, and time. As you suggested, I have begun the reworking of the song by listening differently to it. Already, I like it better without the drums and percussion. I cut out the last verse and...

    New/very old personal folk/pop composition

    Bless you, Grumpy Mod. I appreciate your observations. Very finely tuned. I will strip the song down and streamline it and see what that gives. I admit to have a tendency to overdo some aspects of production and to add percussion elements to make the songs sound more "pop" ( I suppose). Of...

    Hi everybody! This a song I started writing 50 (!) years ago. I would to have your ideas as to how to improve my home production. I don't use any DAW tools. Thank you very much for all your thoughts. Cheers, William https://mx3.ch/t/1x2V

    Thank you for your extreme generosity, sir. After all these years of saying *no" to DAW and hoping that I could obtain the desired results from my TASCAM, I hesitate now to start all over with computer technology tools. Especially seeing that I am from the old school of going into a studio and...

    Yeah, I like what you've done, Talisman. It is, in fact, the kind of warm and present sound I'm really looking for, for all of my acoustic song work. I hope I can find how to get there with the equipment I possess.

    Thank you so much. I understand the difference. I'm always a bit shy about reverb settings and never even sure of what KIND of reverb I should add, i.e. plate, hall, etc. I work exclusively with a TASCAM DP24SD, no DAW, so certain sound modifications are a bit less accessible. The compression...

    Dear friends, This time I’m sending a very basic recording for your professional observations - just acoustic guitar and voice. What I would like to know is HOW to make this sound “radio listenable”, like a simple yet professional production. Any and all ideas will be very much appreciated...

    Electro-acoustic guitar + distortion pedal = too much extra noise >> what to do?

    Electro-acoustic guitar + distortion pedal = too much extra noise >> what to do? Dear friends, In my recording work I like to noise-up some of my songs with electric guitar sounds but I possess only one guitar - a Martin OMX series electro-acoustic. I love it. The problem may well be the...

    EQUIPMENT: Electro acoustic guitar + distortion pedal - too much ground NOISE

    Hello everybody, I record with a TASCAM DP-24SD. I play a Martin electro-acoustic guitar and I LOVE to put some distortion in certain parts of my recordings. I use, for example, the ZOOM Multi-Stomp, and others. Okay, they're noisy, that's normal, but... there is a sort of "ground noise" that...

    Open your eyes

    Hi! I know that there is a lot yet to be done with this home "production", but I'm not exactly sure what it is. I would really like the song to become something people will listen to. I work with a TASCAM DP-24SD, without any DAW support, so my mixes are always one-time events...

    DP24-SD W/O MIDI ports, how do I trigger a synth or drum machine?

    Hello my dear camarades, Who knows why the wonderful people at TEAC decided to not include MIDI ports in the updated 24 track machine - so be it. The question is: how can I make my work easier, for example when I want to create/record a drum machine part whilst following, exactly, the rhythm of...

    Export 16 bit files to a 24 bit recording?

    Hello! Thanks to David Wills of Pro Audio DVDs, I just recently came to understand the interest of recording in the 24 bit/48kHz mode (which means that I will probably re-record over 20 songs that I’ve been working on for the last five years). Oh well… My question today is can I export 16 bit...
