  1. @craigb okay dood, here's the latest "concept" I am now going through the process of trying to create some kind of backstory which will be some kind of sci-fi thing five tracks totalling 65 minutes which are all on SC as private tracks so that I can listen and self crit over then next week or so I'm hoping for an early September release
  2. wasn't that margarine? erm... no, you were right...
  3. Thanks for the buttering up, Craig 😄 On its way... I'll post elsewhere about that so as not to annoy the OP 😉
  4. Sad news indeed... Just been reading some articles on the www. I've seen UFO twice in the last eight years but those line-ups did not include Pete Way, unfortunately.
  5. As I listen to the 65 minutes of stuff I currently have on SoundCloud (as private tracks I hasten to add) I realise that I have it easy. I have embraced LUFS over the last two years and, thinking about it, it really does suit the kind of material I create. And that is why I am saying, "I have it easy." A very high proportion of my work is neither compressed or limited. Well, not entirely true, because I have recently been getting to grips with Pro-Q3's "dynamic EQ" tool. I like that, because it is a lot easier to use than compression where you have to understand all the various settings. With Pro-Q3's dynamic EQ, you just apply it... Nothing to learn other than understanding how it alters sounds. And I only really use it with individual notes that sometimes run riot at certain points, so, quite a narrow Q setting. And my number? -16 I tried -18 for a time, which gives you more dynamic range, but I felt that it was a bit too "quiet" even for my stuff. Every now and then I create something with percussion and I ramp it up to -14. Having said all that, I agree with that Scheps character in that we should mix to suit the material and not some arbitrary level set by others. Sure, there are times when a common level across various genres, or stuff that gets listened to together, is a big plus. You don't want to be reaching for the volume control because your playlist contains some tracks that were mixed and mastered back in the early seventies and some that were done in the late nineties. okay... carry on...
  6. Anyway, some great pics and all that, but I finally took some time to watch the video in the original post and thought that it was a good interview. Just sayin, like...
  7. oh, yes, of course Wibbs, I mean, do we really want to get "it?"
  8. Well, if you do, don't tell me because I want to try and get it myself.
  9. So sorry to hear your sad news, Ken.
  10. Honesty, I can't remember what I was doing twenty days ago 😞 I should keep a dairy, perhaps. oh, wait, that's for milk and stuff...
  11. I'm surprised that you were able to load a VST3 from the non-VST3 path... But, if it works, it works 🙂
  12. I agree, Glyn, the official Arturia forum is a complete pain in the backside and the last time I asked something about my Beatstep Pro I got zero response. Unfortunately I can't help you with your B3 quandary. cheers andy
  13. well it's not coming natural to me @craigb 😞 This isn't something new... just something that raises its head when I pay more attention to the recording. distortion effects make the issue stand out even more
  14. Sorry to hear that Ken We have had five dogs over the years and I therefore know that to most of us our pets are more than just a pet. They are a much loved member of the family. All the best, andy
  15. thanks for your input, @John Bradley, but I don't play through and amp... I have an amp, but it is not practical for me to mic it up... I should sell it really........ sorry 😞
  16. what is bugging me now is this, other open strings ringing when I don't want them to. sometimes it doesn't sound so bad if the open string that is ringing is at least in key... I try to remember to mute strings adjacent to the one I am playing but that appears to be a skill in itself my calluses are coming along nicely, though.
