  1. Sorry for all the confusion. To answer, the engineer basically wanted to coach me over the phone as a co-mix, not remotely. I've since pulled back and hired someone else. This idea to me was ridiculous and the mere suggestion of doing this teed me off. I thought that after so many years wow has the industry really progressed. But something just didn't sound right and despite the explanation that was given to me, (to keep the project in an acceptable budget for me), my gut was telling me he was taking me for an idiot. As always, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. But I've learned to trust my instincts and the red flag stuck out like a sore thumb.
  2. You're so right. It was so obvious. I've moved on from this sound engineer...

  4. Finished my project on Cakewalk. I don't like mixing or mastering so I'm farming it out. Problem is that the sound engineer wants to do the mix over the phone using my DAW. Not that I want to put down my axe its great but I thought that's why one would want it farmed out. New set of ears, (golden I'm assuming), in addition to a high end studio. And I already mentioned to the engineer that I don't like mixing. Has anyone ever been asked to this?? I've been out of the industry for 30 yrs now. Does this sound right? This is unusual to me.

  7. Who's VST3, Waves offers that? or Do you mean that BandLab has a VST3 compatible version?
  8. ? I'm not sure I understand your answer...😕
  9. I read in the older forum that earlier Cakewalk Sonar programs were not compatible with Waves Vocal-Rider. Cakewalk had its own side-chaining choice, (Sonitus Gate), which does work. But the Vocal-Rider is a superior app. But that was then, so what about now? Is Cakewalk Bandlab compatible to Waves Vocal-Rider? (I did try it in Sonar 8.5 and the side-chaining aspect of Vocal-Rider does not work. It would not show up upon choosing a send, (Sonitus Gate does if I choose it).
  10. Hidden within the foam in the bridge is the SM57...... It should come out okay.....good luck!
  11. I'm by no means a sound engineer, but I know my instruments. My upright bass has a good sound but I'm still not happy with the sound capture. I've recorded using a Realist Pickup for Acoustic Upright Bass....no likey. Then I tried a Micro-Gooseneck by Myers Pickups.....still no likey. I thought to myself, why don't it sound like an upright? Those P/U's make my upright sound like I'm playing an EUB. Then I googled recording upright bass and found this video: https://youtu.be/EhdkYCDiB9Q Definitely helped me out, (especially the foam around the mic in the bridge), but I could not afford to buy a high end condenser mic like the one in the video, (luckily the budget SM-57 I do own). After doing some more googling I was convinced even a budget cheapy condenser mic will do the trick. Tried my MXL-V57M condenser with the Sure SM57 onto two separate tracks and BAM! I got close enough to be happy now! Recording and capturing the live upright sound is solved. But here's where I'm not so happy anymore.....I liked it so much, that I want to be able to duplicate that sound live with just the two mics and a duel mic pre-amp so that I can patch it into my amp. Here's my gear: An upright, (obviously), the Sure SM57, the MXL condenser mic, an M-Audio DMP3 Dual Mic PreAmplifier, and a GK MB-112 Combo bass amp. I'll be using a mono splitter cable which haven't gotten yet to patch into my amp. I'm I in the right direction? Bass Clip.mp3
  12. I see what the problem is. That dialog is available only on my 64 bit machine with Bandlab. But not on my 32 bit machine that does not have Bandlab, (this machine is my main axe which never has a problemo. It uses Sonar 8.5). That's why I was asking for the download.
  13. Thanks that was quick. I tried that, it only gives me the learn more option...no Add-ons...
  14. Cant find it. I know its discontinued, but it was available for free couple years back. Anybody have a copy they can upload? Thanks!
  15. Its a sample. What vst can import an .sxt file? A Grand Piano.sxt
