    Hearing loss

    I've listened to some files form other sites, including sweeps etc. They seem to confirm that I hear nothing above 11 or 12 kHz. I also have a notch at around 3.5kHz and another one in one ear around 7kHz. A while back I was eq some eazy drummer cymbals and adding a shelving eq around 12kHz and...

    I can't honestly say I can tell the difference between those two.

    Thanks Rob. It sets my mind at ease that I'm not actually missing much in that area.

    Hearing loss

    Not sure if this is the correct forum to ask this, but it seems the closest. I have taken the SoundGym hearing test and the highest frequency I can hear in both ears is just above 11kHz. I guess one good thing is that both ears have roughly the same range. I was just wondering if anyone else...

    Long Way Down

    Hi all. Long time since I've been here, so a bit cheeky asking for feedback. Will give some soon though, promise. Main thing I'm interested in is sibilance, or over compensating for it at the start of the first verse. I think I sound like Sylvester the Cat. My girlfriend can't tell now as she...

    Separate Log In for Recording

    Hi folks Apologies if this had been answered elsewhere (I've looked and can't find anything) I was just wondering if it was possible with Windows 10, to set up a separate user login which did not load McAfee, had wireless enabled etc. for recording. If possible I want to avoid a dual boot and...

    Audio glitch at media item joins

    Hi Not posted here for a long time. Hopefully I can get some advice. I have a Reaper project with a couple of tracks containing 2 and 4 bar drum loops repeated over most of the song and one or two three or four bar guitar parts scattered throughout the project. I also have a bass guitar and...

    upgrading advice

    Hi Guys I am currently using a Roland VS880EX. Would like more tracks, what do you guys suggest. Have considered a second hand VS1680 or a Zoom R24. Thing that puts me off Zoom 24 is lack of midi, would sometimes like to sync my Yahmaha SY85 seqencer with the recorder. I also read that with the...

    Acousticy Thing

    Please have a listen to my acousticy thing and let me know what you think. I know there's some timing issues, I'm not going for ana very produced sound, not quite lo-fi but sort of retro and a bit raw. Many thanks. 03 - Moving On (Again) - Cirrus - In The Clouds by Company of Artful Jesters on...

    Trying to improve drum sound

    I'd appreciate you opinions on my drum sound and whether it's better than on my earlier stuff. I've had a go at tuning the drums, this is the first time I've ever tried it. I've tightened the snare wires you suggested Greg. I've also played with the EQ. Someone here suggested boosting the 200hz...

Many thanks in advance. Artful...

    Attempt at fixing a mix

    From feedback from my last track (Cheeky request post) and listening to a lot of stuff here I realised that my other mixes where muddy and the drums boxy. I've add some EQ to my track on my last post (appreciated if you could take a listen) and have played about with EQ on this other mix and...

    Cheeky Reqest

    Glad you liked the thunder. I'e loaded another version, it's not a remix, I've just played around with some EQ. It's done in headphones so I don't know how it'll translate. I noticed that my mixes sound dull compared to most of the stuff I hear here. I know it's trying to fix something that...

    Here is the full version of the song. There was a middle section but I don't think it worked.

    Cheeky Reqest

    Just done some research on the internet and apparently some recorders are not tuned to A=440hz. I've rerecorded the recorders with the sample rate lower to compensate. Would appreciate it if you could have another listen (I know it sounds a bit like elves dancing in a wood). Many thanks
