  1. Second generation 6i6 has been working flawlessly for me for two years.
  2. Thanks for responding. I just had a look at my last audiogram. It charts results for 125 to 8k Hz, but I have no idea how much of that range the hearing aids are actually capable of correcting. Beyond that, I don't wear them when I'm using headphones anyway. If Sonarworks headphone calibration software were tweakable by the end user, you could theoretically incorporate your own personal correction curve into the headphone calibration. Of course, even perfect correction wouldn't automatically make me a good mixer. 🙂
  3. I started this up with the sound off and wondered what was going on. Then I turned the sound on and I still wonder.
  4. Since reading about the Sonarworks profiles for headphones, I've been wondering whether there's a good way to create a custom profile based on your own specific hearing loss using data taken from an audiogram. Creating mixes that translate well is hard enough under the best of circumstances. It's even harder when you know that what you hear may not be the same as what other people hear even if they're listening in the same room as you. If you have hearing aids, and I do, my understanding is they're not designed to approximate the experience of normal hearing. They can be tuned to enhance specific frequencies where you have deficits, but generally only in the range of human speech and not, for example, in the very low and very high frequencies. Thoughts?
  5. Dave, have you listened to "Lyle Lovett and His Large Band"? The CD, at least back when I bought it, was mastered at a much lower level than most recent recordings and sounds great on a good system. Clever songwriting and fine arrangements too.
  6. Thanks, Jim. I figured there was no good way around it when MS decides they want me to update.
  7. My Windows 10 Home PC says 1903 is available: "When you're ready for the update, select "Download and install now."" Can I put this off indefinitely?
  8. Yes, I saw a video or blog somewhere that talked about using Melodyne as a composition tool. It's been very helpful to me for working out harmony parts that I can practice singing until I'm ready to actually record the part.
  9. As the shock starts to wear off, you'll face the challenge of surviving the next weeks and months. Like others have said, you can't rush it, you just live it and give yourself time to heal. Take care.
  10. Hopefully not too off topic, this Pearls Before Swine riff on the Abbot and Costello "who's on first" bit: https://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbeforeswine/2014/10/19
  11. You can also do this with the Process > Find/Change command. It's a little clunkier than the Event Inspector, but it's an extremely powerful way to manipulate many different attributes of MIDI data.
  12. A lot of us old guys remember when it was a big deal to have four tracks (tape) to work with. While I'd never go back to that, it helped you develop a certain mindset about arranging and recording. You really had to think about what was needed to get the song across as well as what you could do without. Now I try to remember to ask myself "do I really need five guitar tracks?" or whatever.
