  1. Ah thanks. There were pop singers at that concert too - didn't occur to me that a backup mic could be passed to them quickly. There was an "orchestra" there - and each instrument appeared to be individually mic-ed. Some of the choir were clearly singing but I couldn't spot their mic(s).
  2. So I was watching the Coronation Concert the other day and noticed that Bryn Terfal and Andre Bocelli using two microphones each. What is the reason? I am curious. Is it redundancy (in case one "breaks")? Is there some clever noise reduction technique (although I can't understand how it would work side-by-side but https://www.soundonsound.com/sound-advice/q-why-do-sometimes-see-singers-using-two-microphones-stage describes what looks like a back/front method for noise reduction). I've used "two" microphones in studio before - but it was really that one of them was "fake" such that it could be touched, fiddled, etc (the singer was a playful child) whilst the other microphone further behind was doing the proper work, at the desired distance from the singer. https://www.classicfm.com/artists/andrea-bocelli/bryn-terfel-youll-never-walk-alone-coronation-concert/
  3. added the new patches from V-Piano Expansion 01 German Concert
  4. Thanks. I quite like the X32 but for now (for my own use) I realise that still need/want one SPDIF input and so this on it's own does not suit. Wei Liang
  5. The idea is to leave the mic on. Prevent people from muting it. Or turning it off. (The switch is at the bottom of the mic, covered by the ferrule)
  6. Yup the mute button. It stresses me that the first thing people do with the microphone is turn it off (or mute it) when they need to use it.
  7. For example finding a cover for the switch on the wireless microphone. 🙂
  8. Thanks @Hatstand. Most of the material is speech. None of the people have a clue about what decibel is, and they will have done well if they even managed to send the video across. So it will be for me to try to make it such that it is loud enough, and not too loud. (The aim is so that the listener doesn't have to reach for the volume control many times) For uncomplicated clips it has been fastest to use Audacity for loudness normalisation to a target. (Can make it a macro, with limiter as second step). For the complex clips I use cakewalk plus any combination of envelopes, compression, limiting, erase, etc. I was hoping however that Cakewalk had a simple loudness normalisation tool like audacity. Hence this feature request. Wei Liang
  9. Hi - this is probably much more than I would ever need (in terms of I/O and routing), but I am wondering if anyone has experience of using this as a USB audio interface with Cakewalk. Any issues with its ASIO drivers?
  10. Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll look at the MLoudnessAnalyzer and 4U meter as well.
  11. Vocal Rider might be what I need. Thanks for the suggestion. Wei Liang
  12. Hi, I mean that this would be an automated process to: 1. Analyse/measure the integrated (average) perceived loudness as measured/defined with LUFS (aka LKFS). Example: it measures -6 dB LUFS. 2. Automatically increase or decrease the clip loudness to the desired level. Example: it reduces that clip by 8 dB so that it now measures -14 dB LUFS. 3. Optionally limit the peaks that exceed 0dB (or other user-defined threshold) The use case scenario: you are given a video compilation of various speeches and music clips and asked to fix the sound. Because some content is too soft and some content too loud, all within that video. Therefore I split the 60 minute audio into the different sections that need fixing and adjust those volumes then put it back into the video. I don't think a compressor is the right tool for this but others with more experience might educate me. Thanks PS this (loudness normalisation) can be done in audacity. But I would prefer to use my favourite software (cakewalk) 🙂
  13. Hello - it would be nice to have Proccess --> Apply Effect --> Loudness Normalize which can be applied to a clip, to normalise the loudness to a prefered LUFS target, which can also give the user the option to allow/disallow if the result will have peaks above 0dB, and also give the user the option to apply their preferred limiter plugin if so. Thanks, Wei Liang
