    Vocal FX advice

    Hi Treesha, Gsnap is a free VST for pitch correction for vocals that I learned from one of the Youtube videos I watched and can't remember who was it from. Anyway the link is, https://www.gvst.co.uk/gsnap.htm Don't want to pay commercial stuff first until I get the hang of what each VSTs capabilities are till I fully understood how it can help with the mixing process Many thanks for the support
  3. Many thanks for that John :)

    Vocal FX advice

    Hi Treesha, Many thanks for your encouraging word To be honest, I am still at the stage where I don't know if my understanding is correct so I am hoping to see other people's project on how they mix from voices, instrument, fx, and etc just to give me more ideas on how to improve my knowledge. I think making it sound professional at this time sounds far fetch at my current level so just thinking of making it sound clear and crisp to begin with. So that's my target first before moving to the next stuff Do you have in depth tutorial or blog I can learn from you?
  5. Hi John, From your example above, sounds like I will send my drums to a bus that will be panned hard left and the other instruments into another bus that will be panned hard right. If that what is I am thinking, is it safe to say that I should insert a bus for my click tracks and guides that will be panned hard left, and the rest of the instruments will be on another stereo bus that will be panned hard right? Many thanks

    Vocal FX advice

    Hello peepz, Just starting to mix a song that I have tediously fixed for almost 2 days to get all vocals in sync and in time with the beat. Complete newbie if you are wondering why it took me a long time so if anyone has got advice how to get a group of vocals in sync in less time, I'm all ears Anyway, as you can see from the pic attached, not sure if what I am doing is correct. I've setup some VX-64 and Gsnap to make the vocals sound dynamic and make it clean. But going through some tutorial via Youtube and in here, I am not getting enough info on what to do with vocals cleanup and making them sound professional. One thing I picked up from watching Youtube is that I need to create busses for FX so that it will be shared for the group I want to apply it to. Is that correct? Kinda stuck now really after spending for almost a week just trying to figure what I'm suppose to do so can anyone kindly share your ideas and FX setup on how to achieve this pls. Many thanks for your patience and effort as I slowly build up my mixing skills and knowledge.
  7. Hi John, Many thanks for your advice. In regards with setting up 2 busses, would you have an example how will you do it pls?
  8. Thank you for that very useful info. I'll try that settings this week and will come back to you. Many thanks once again
  9. Hi, Newbie guy here. Simple question, when saving a song track that will allow me to play with a backing track and hear the click track, what must I do to ensure I will get those results once I connected it to my mixer? Basically, I only want my click tracks and guides to be played via ear monitors but the backing track goes out to the main speakers. I'm trying to follow this kind of setup and wondering if there is something I must do first when saving a song track using Cakewalk, Hope that makes sense.
  10. Right, finally solved it. Had to uninstall everything up to deleting the previous registry and re-install it again. I can finally hear what I want and it is playing everything I want to play. So finally manage to past this hurdle So baby steps for me at the moment but will eventually get this all familiar hopefully soon enough. Many thanks for all your support.
  11. Hi Charles, I've downloaded a midi song from Google just like what suggested but sadly I don't hear any sound coming out from laptop speakers. I've attached some screenshots of my settings and not sure if any of these are causing a havoc. Many thanks.
  12. Hi, I've been trying to export an audio either as a .wav/mp3 file but all I keep getting is an error message "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file". It is a test click track guide that I made as I am only starting to get familiar with the software. I've selected all the tracks from my project and choose "Entire mix" when I am about to save the file. Tested with other audio programs but no sound coming out at all. Any ideas pls? Many thanks.
