  1. If I understand what you are asking, you can do this now. This tutorial starts with applying tempo to a project that wasn't recorded to a click, but then it also covers changing an existing tempo for the whole project.
  2. I'm holding out for that 3950X or perhaps the 24 core Threadripper, both due out on 11/19. I don't need that kind of power for a DAW, but for work it will be a huge productivity boost. It won't suck for DAW work either.
  3. You might consider checking out some YouTube courses on how to use and care for and clean your soldering equipment. If you have stuff built up on the soldering tip you are not caring for it properly and it will not do the job it was designed to do to an adequate extent. If you look at the picture below you will see the soldering iron that I have been using for the past four years. I have built three tube amplifiers and a FET microphone with that tip. At a minimum, use the sponge when you solder and quickly wipe the soldering iron tip on the wet sponge after each application of solder to a component. So during the course of a work session you will be wiping that tip many many many times . Make sure the tip is tinned and that it is nice and shiny after each wipe and it will last a very long time and do a great job for you. Finally if you're going to be doing any kind of work like this it pays to spend a little extra money to get a variable temperature soldering station. The one I have below is a Weller wesd51. It didn't cost much more than $100 and it's a fantastic tool that will allow you to do consistently high-quality work for a long time. Good luck! Edit: I learned to solder at a weeks-long soldering school when I was in the US Navy. That school taught soldering techniques that met NASA-specifications for workmanship and was probably the most intense training I've ever had. Those specs cover every conceivable soldering scenario as you might well imagine. Check out https://hackaday.com/2016/11/03/specifications-you-should-read-the-nasa-workmanship-standards/ for an entertaining read on this subject as well as an extremely useful link to the specs themselves. Now, I'm not saying you need to use NASA standards to make XLR cables, but the standards are very practical and easy to understand, and after a little practice, using those techniques makes things much easier and faster and your work will stand the test of time. Besides, to paraphrase the Hackaday site, it doesn’t hurt the ego to build something trivial to the same standards as a spaceship.
  4. Thanks Paul I appreciate you listening! I'm going to call this one done I think. I want to thank everyone who has provided feedback I quite literally couldn't have done this without you.

    Wow, what a lush sound. Really nice mix, and a clever arrangement. Beautiful!
  6. Yeah, man, gotta have Jan and Dean doing harmonies! Aside from that, others have given you the essentials. Brings back memories!
  7. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss! Nice sound with lots of warmth that I wish I could get in my tunes. Piano and drums sound great and mix is very solid.
  8. I've updated my original post with the new mix, please check it out, thank you!
  9. I enjoyed this one very much, Daryl, great lyrics and simple, clear and well executed vocals (always a standout for you guys) with a great arrangement. The mix is clear, balanced and quite nice to listen to. What's not to like?
  10. You do have something here that I like, . It's kind of like a cross between The Clash, the Beatles and Captain Beefheart. Pretty cool!
  11. Smokin' ! Great mix, sounded fantastic even on my little phone speaker, really nice job!
  12. Thank you, Daryl, I'm grateful for your ears!
