  • A-Z Of Pro Tools - N Is For New Tracks, Nudge, Numeric Keypad And "N"
     When looking at what to include for the letter N I have noticed a common theme. All of these resources I have linked to have something in common. They are all highlighting common keyboard shortcuts. I think I have said before that my policy on keyboard shortcuts is that they are intended to be “shortcuts” i.e. they speed up the execution of things you do often. There is little point learning a shortcut for something you rarely do (and you’ll find it really hard to remember it as well). So with this in mind here are some N’s (and some shortcuts) I couldn’t get by without.New TracksAll sessions have tracks in them. Templates have their place, if you find you are building identical sessions time after time then save a template but if you are new to Pro Tools I strongly recommend you build your own sessions, avoid the stock templates in the quick start dialogue. You can use the newly introduced double-click with modifier to create new tracks but I’ve never really used them as the track creation shortcuts are second nature to me and more flexible.Read the Article and watch the free video here. NudgeThe number of people who drop out of grid into slip and move clips, notes or automation, effectively guessing where something needs to be amazes me. Nudging offers all the tools you need to place data whether you know exactly where it need to be or not. Learning a couple of shortcuts will take all of the guesswork out of finding exactly where something needs to be to tighten up your arrangement or mix.Watch the free video hereNumeric KeypadAll this nudging will have left the people without number pads on their keyboards feeling a bit left out. I can’t use Pro Tools properly without an extended keyboard. If you don’t have one then you should get one, read about why here.The N KeyLastly there is the N key itself. With command focus active, pressing the N key toggles “insertion follows playback”. If you ever wonder why Pro Tools sometimes starts playback from the same place over and over again but at other times behaves like a tape machine, playing from where you last stopped it you need to read this Pro Tools Fundamentals article.

  • Quick Tip: Using Memory Locations In Pro Tools To Clean Up A Session
    Sometimes when I work with big sessions with large track counts I like to structure them to make it easier to get a better overview of the session and I use memory locations to help me do that.Find your guitar tracks (or any tracks you like) in the Edit window or Tracks section and select all guitar tracks by holding down the shift key and selecting them. Once selected, the track names will be in highlighted in the Edit window as above.Navigate to the dropdown menu in the Track window and pick ‘show only selected tracks’.Now all the other tracks in your session will be hidden in the Edit window, leaving just the guitar-tracks that you just selected showing.Double tap the Enter key on the numpad section of your keyboard to create a new marker. Alternatively, press command +5 to open up the Memory Location window and choose ‘New Memory Location’ from the drop down menu.Name the new Marker as ‘Guitars’ and make sure to check the Track Show/Hide option below.Now go back to the Tracks window and select Show All Tracks from the drop down menu and create a new marker using the steps above. But this time we going to call the new marker ”All tracks”. Now you should have two markers in the Memory Location window.When selecting the marker ‘guitar’ all the other tracks will be hidden on the Edit window, and when you press ”All tracks” they all will be visible again. You can of course do this for as many markers as you like.

  • The Little Things - Our Clients Don't Know When We've Done Them But We Do
    Perfection is said to be as much a curse as it is a blessing, especially for creative types. We record, edit, mix audio or shoot, cut and grade video and often we just can’t leave it alone, or indeed be satisfied with the end results. When asking creatives if they are happy with their past work, many will tell you “no.” I listen to albums I made 10 years ago and want to go back and replace snares, or watch videos I cut 5 years ago and want to re-grade them.Add money into the equation and the problem gets even harder.  We strive for perfection, but within limited time and financial constrains (in fact, the two are intrinsically linked when you work as a professional). There is a danger of wanting to cut corners, especially when on tight deadlines, however many of us simply work longer and inevitably for free to deliver a great project.For many of us (and this is partly why so many creative businesses fail) our primary motivation is not money; it is our desire for excellence if not perfection.This weekend, I spent hours cutting videos which required some complex audio work too. I was on a tight deadline so I just got up at 5 a.m. and worked until midnight to make sure I was satisfied that every video edit, dialogue stream, music bed, colour grade etc. were as good as they could be. I know I’m not the exception and that many of you reading this are exactly the same. You too will work more hours than you should or are getting paid for. Don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining, I’m simply stating the facts.Our clients often never know the lengths we go to when working on their projects; they certainly won’t pay for half the work we did in the name of perfection.It’s a difficult balance on the one hand being a creative professional with a budget and on the other hand a personal desire to do the best we can. It’s the little things that take a project from good to great but as I’ve already alluded to most of us seldom feel we have done that despite our best efforts.Our desire to do the best we can drives us and perhaps clients know this and take advantage? I’m sure some do but I also know that most of my clients are hugely appreciative of creatives who are conscientious in their work and this is why they keep hiring us.There’s a lot of stuff we do on projects that take them to another level, the little details that we can spend hours on and no one even notices them, but often it’s those things that make the difference.Still…

  • Air Display Updated To V3 With USB Connectivity To Compete With Duet Display
    Just before Christmas we covered a great find Duet Display, as well as suggesting 3 ways to use the Duet Display. Avatron Software make a similar product to Duet Display called Air Display 2 that was WiFi only and could be a little laggy as a result. They have been in touch to tell us that they are updating their Air Display 2 to AIR Display 3 to add USB connectivity and more. It seems that Apple have relaxed their policy on rejecting apps that accessed USB when Duet Display was approved and it would appear from the announcement of Air Display 3 this isn’t a one off. MacRumours said of Air Display 3…In our limited testing, Air Display 3 used over USB worked well, with little lag, and its performance was comparable to Duet Display. There’s still an option to connect over WiFi if USB is not available, but using WiFi was considerably more unreliable with a lot more of a delay when attempting to perform tasks. What Are The New Features In Air Display 3?USB: They have added USB. You can still communicate over Wi-Fi, which is very useful in some cases and allows you walk around untethered, but you can also plug in your dock connector and see much faster performance with no perceptible lag.This is great for using Air Display in locations with a hostile Wi-Fi network, like hotels, coffee shops, airplanes, and some corporate and campus networks.Pressure: They are retiring their Air Stylus iOS app and rolling all of its features into Air Display 3. Now you can draw with your favourite pressure-sensitive stylus directly into a Mac app like Photoshop or Motion.In Air Display 3, they have added support for all of the latest styluses and on iOS 8, you don’t even need a stylus, just tilt your finger to simulate pressure changes.Pinch-Zoom: You can use familiar gestures to zoom and pan, which is quite handy at Retina resolutions and makes the iPhone a useful second display.Speed: USB speeds up the Air Display connection a lot, but Air Display 3 also dramatically increases performance over Wi-Fi.If you haven’t come across Air Display before then here is a summary of what it can do…Multiple Monitors: Air Display 3 connects up to 4 iPads simultaneously for powerful multi-monitor configurations.Keyboard: Type using Air Display’s built-in keyboard or any Bluetooth keyboard.Cross Platform: The free Mac host app is not just for iOS; it can also connect to our Air Display clients for Android, Mac, and Windows.Touch Gestures: You can control yo…

  • Free AAX Limiter Plug-in From GoodHertz
    New kids on the block and boutique developers GoodHertz have just announced AAX support for their plug-ins including their Faraday Limiter which they describe as a peak limiter with a big transformer sound and even better news is that it is free at the moment. So check it out and let us know what you think of it.What’s In A Name?Named after the inventor of the electrical transformer, Faraday Limiter’s analog-modeled input/output transformers are responsible for its beefy, harmonically-rich sound. The limiter circuit is smooth yet lively — it can pump faster and further than any limiter we’ve ever heard while retaining its characteristic punch and warmth. Faraday Limiter sounds great on buses, individual instruments, vocals, dialog, etc. and allows for a level of timbral shaping and tonal coloration that can’t be achieved with any other dynamics processor.More from GoodHertz here.

  • G-Technology Release G-Raid Drives Using Enterprise Class 6TB or 8TB Drives
    Look at what the team spotted on the G-Technology stand at BVE yesterday. G-Tech have recently released two very interesting products, the G-RAID series with USB3 and twin Thunderbolt interfaces and their indestructible drives, the G-Drive ev RaW top right and G-Drive ev ATC top left.G-RAID with Thunderbolt & USB3These are 2 slot enclosures that come in two formats, USB3 only or USB3 and twin Thunderbolt. Add to that, they can supply them with 6TB or their new 8TB Enterprise hard drives means than you can have a lot of storage in a very small space. The Enterprise class drives, G-Tech supply are designed for 24/7 use in servers, where as they explained to us that normal drives are not necessary built for continuous use.  One of the issues that can cause drives to fail is that the platters start to spin off centre as they get older and eventually the heads crash into the disk and that is the end of the drive. The G-Tech drives monitor and sense as the disk start to spin off centre and can correct for it, so increasing their usable life span. They can be configured at RAID 0,1 or JBOD and they explained these units come with a 5 year warranty and it just gets better.Looking at the pricing and the 8TB Thunderbolt and USB3 unit comes in $800, the 12TB is priced at $1000 and the 16TB unit costs $1300.  If you want the USB3 only version then knock of $200 each of those prices.G-Drive ev RAWThe RAW drive is made of a durable lightweight compound which makes it lighter than a normal G-Drive, and then adding the rugged bumper means you have a portable lightweight drive that can survive a 1.5m drop onto carpeted concrete.G-Drive ev ATCATC stands for All Terrain Case. So take a RAW drive and slide it into an ATC provides a watertight unit that will float if dropped into water and will survive a 2m drop onto carpeted concrete, which takes the concept of rugged drives to a whole new level.More G-Tech Reviews And Test To ComeIt was another one of those moments where the three of us on the team that went to check them out at BVE came away saying we were seriously considering spending money on G-Tech products. So you can look forward to us putting these drives through their paces including us attempting to break them to see if G-Tech’s claims hold water.

  • Audient ASP880/Midas XL48 Shootout - The Results
    ResultsMany thanks to everyone who voted. While the two units are of very similar quality,  that is not to say that they sound the same. Of course this is a very subjective area but to my ears the Midas was noticeably fuller, with a softer transient response and a pleasing “smoosh” to it which I enjoyed very much. The Audient was faster with excellent clarity and arguably was more transparent.The files were: Strummed Guitar 1 - Audient ASP880Strummed Guitar 2 - Midas XL48Picked Guitar 1 - Midas XL48Picked Guitar 2 - Audient ASP880Drum Test 1 - Midas XL48Drum Test 2 - Audient ASP880Spoken Word 1 - Audient ASP880Spoken Word 2 - Midas XL48 The results showed the Midas was slightly preferred on strummed acoustic (55%/45%), wheras the Audient was strongly preferred on picked acoustic (68%/32%). On drums the Midas was strongly preferred (65%/35%) and on spoken word (I hope everyone enjoyed my rendition of Pharell as performance poetry) there was no clear preference, with results of almost exactly 50/50.MicrophonesTo complete the picture, I’m sure some people want to know, the microphones used were:Acoustic guitar (strummed and picked) - a pair of Se1a small diaphragm condensers as an XY pair.DrumsKick - Audio Technica ATM25Snare Top - Beyer M201Snare Under - Rode NT55 CardiodToms - MD421Mono OH - 4038Stereo OH - 414ULS Cardiod Spoken Word - Beyer M201No filtering, EQ or compression was used on any of these recordings. The only processing used other than level-matching was gating on the tom mics with a splash of Dverb over the whole kit.CriticismsSo keeping in mind my earlier observation that both units are very good indeed, what have I learned using these units for a few days? What would I wish I’d known in advance if I’d bought them?Fan noiseThe Midas fan noise is very distracting. In my studio the Midas was the noisiest equipment in there, louder than my computer, my interface or my drives. Because of this, if you are looking to upgrade your interface preamps with some higher quality ones, and all of these these preamps are at least as good as the very best interface preamps, then the XL48 might not be the unit for you. If you are intending to use the XL48 as your go-to preamp for overdubs when working at your computer, then the noise will be an issue. The ASP880 is basically silent in operation. This might appear to be a conclusive victory for the ASP880 over the XL48 but I would argue that how serious the fan noi…

  • New Information On Avid Pro Tools Subscription Service
    Community member Tom Scrivano has given us the heads up on this, when going through the Spring 2015 Sweetwater Directory on page 465, he found more information about the Avid Pro Tools Subscription Service. We have no more information than what is in this post.We haven’t had this confirmed from Avid but Sweetwater is a large dealer, so are unlikely to have got it wrong, but we cannot be sure this is official Avid policy. Avid appear to be offering two licensing models - Perpetual and Software Subscription and thus is what they say…Pro Tools Perpetual LicenseA Pro Tools Perpetual license and Pro Tools HD system comes with a 12 month support and upgrade plan. Not only does this provide upgrades for a year - far better than any amnesty deal out there - but also comes with access to 24 hour customer support and a wealth of additional resources. The plan is renewable on a yearly basis for a moderate fee, and if you decide not to renew, you keep your system and all the upgrades you already have.Pro Tools Software Subscription ServiceAvailable on a yearly or monthly basis, the Pro Tools Software Subscription Service allows Pro Tools users to pay as they go and only when they need access to Pro Tools. This plan includes upgrades and support, providing you with access to the latest features and capabilities. You can cancel the subscription if you don’t need Pro Tools for a period, and then start up again the next time you have a project. And if you’re an industry professional, then the subscription service offers unique benefits to you, allowing you to to claim an operational expense while lowering your capital expenditures.Source: Sweeetwater Sound Spring Directory 2015

  • Review & Shootout: Audient ASP880 Vs Midas XL48 Mic Preamps
    In this shootout we’ll be comparing two very similar 8 channel preamps, of course what really matters is how they sound but its not just about the sound. The specs can tell you a lot but there are always things you learn about equipment when you actually get hands on with it that you just can’t tell from the specs alone. The audio files of these units in action will tell you a lot about how well these units do their job but here I’m going to offer the other stuff that specs and sound examples alone won’t tell you.Both the Audient and Midas units are 1 U, 8 channel mic preamps of reassuringly solid construction and lets get this out of the way straight away - They are both excellent. There is no “bad one” here. However, having used them both I think the differences between them make them suitable for slightly different users.SimilaritiesSo, how are they similar? Well after studying the front and rear panels the operation of both of these units should be reasonably clear, some similarities worth drawing attention to include:Neither unit has a power switch, my preference has always been to have a front panel power switch on all rackmount equipment. Thankfully neither unit uses an external PSU.Both feature 8 preamps with 60dB of gain. In a quick test both units seemed to have identical gain to within a dB - easily inside the margin of error of my not very scientific test. Both units have variable HPF, the Audient HPF is switched, the Midas’ is not.ADAT outputs with SMUX to 96KHzAlthough both units have pairs of ADAT connectors, both are outputs, with the second providing the extra bandwidth to SMUX to 96KHz. Both units can function as A/D converters for both mic and line sources. While patching one of these units I absent-mindedly considered setting up 8 hardware inserts via ADAT to give 8 analogue filters as inserts. Then I remembered I had only an A/D converter without any D/A conversion.Both units have 8 line inputs and outputs on 25 pin Dsub. Using the digital and analogue outputs together enables use as a splitter to send to more than one destination simultaneously.DifferencesAfter considering all the similarities, there are significant differences which may or may not be deal-breakers depending on your particular needs:Input PadsThe Audient only has pads only on channels 1&2. While for many this may not be an issue, If you are like me and like to use condenser mics on toms or other loud sources then if your mics don’t offer…

  • Basics - 5 Fundamentals For Getting A Great Acoustic Guitar Sound When Recording
    Acoustic guitar is a staple instrument across a variety of musical genres from Folk and Country through to Pop and Rock, so there’s every chance you are going to be recording one on a regular basis.Here are our top 5 tips to getting a great sound when recording. You might be surprised at what they are!String TheoryMake sure the guitar has new strings on it. Guitar strings are a sponge for grease and grime, they would be a CSI’s dream, very soon even a new set of strings can start to sound dead and lifeless. If you are making the effort of capturing tracks then spend $10 and put a set of new strings on your pride and joy. Depending on the time you last did it then it might sound like a new guitar.Tuning, Tuning And TuningTune the guitar and after you have tuned it then check it and tune it again. It’s amazing how many well known tracks feature out of tune guitars, so invest a good chromatic tuner and keep checking the tuning before and after every take. Don’t trust your ears when it comes to tuning, the old 5th fret trick might be good for a bar gig but not for capturing a moment of guitar playing history (we hope!)Mic CheckYour guitar may have a built in pick-up, that might be great (possibly) for live work but not for the studio so get a good microphone to record your guitar. If you’re on a budget then choose a good all rounder there are plenty of great microphones for those on a budget these days for around $150. These microphones have a multitude of uses from vocal through to instrument recording. If you have few bucks and have the budget for a dedicated mic then call up a good dealer and get some advice.Use Your EarsNot to strum with that would be plain silly, but test the microphone position with the guitar. If your not in a large studio with separate rooms and recording at home then the best way to do this is to put the mic through your headphones and the move the guitar around whilst listening to the results. Moving the mic further away wlll give you a more natural room sound, close up will give you more attack and body. Move the guitar around and you will hear the sound change dramatically.RelaxRelax and play! Studios have the effect of turning even some great players into a wreck. The best thing to do is to relax, play, do several takes and then have a listen back to see what’s working. If you have someone who is going to pieces then tell them you just want them to play along whilst you do some adjustments, but record it -…

  • A-Z Of Pro Tools - M Is For Master Fader And Mute
    MuteThe first M this week is Mute. In this free video I demonstrate a useful trick for A/B-ing tracks using shift+S to toggle the mute buttons on selected tracks. This is really handy so be sure to check it out is you haven’t come across it before.Master FaderI’m never shy of discussing what is going on under the hood of Pro Tools and the second M on the list this week is the master fader. These crucial features of any Pro Tools session are often misunderstood by novices and all too often are missing altogether from sessions. As we shall see, 64 bit floating point environments like Pro Tools 11 are more forgiving than TDM systems ever were but clipping is still a bad thing and if you understand master faders you will manage your gain structure more effectively and maybe start using them in more places than just your main output.To review the whys and hows of master faders read the Pro Tools Fundamentals articles I wrote on this last year Master Faders Part 1 Master Faders Part 2.

  • Review Of Waves dbx160 Compressor/Limiter Plug-in
    Russ takes a look at the new Waves dbx160 compressor/limiter plug-in to see how it stands up to his own hardware version.In this video review of the Waves dbx160 Compressor/Limiter Plug-in he checks it out on a live drum kit with kick, snare, OH and room microphones.Considered one of the best drum compressors ever, the original dbx® 160 stands tall among its peers, boasting a very clean sound with minimum THD. The fast-acting dbx® 160 compressor was used in almost every major recording in the late ‘70s and throughout the ‘80s, and later models in the 160 series also became industry standards.Created in collaboration with dbx®, the Waves dbx® 160 compressor / limiter plugin is an authentic-sounding software version of this storied piece of hardware. In addition to its meticulous modeling of the vintage compressor, the Waves dbx® 160 plugin incorporates unique and exclusive features not found in the original hardware, such as Waves’ MS Matrix, mix and noise controls, and a stereo component. The result is a must-have compressor / limiter for use in the studio, live, or both.“To get closer to the realism of live performance” has been a goal of dbx® since the company’s inception in the 1970s. This goal has come full circle with the Waves dbx® 160 compressor / limiter plugin, which enables you to achieve stunning realism in the studio or to add nuance to an actual live performance.

  • Pro Tools Tutorial - Align Vocals Using Elastic Audio And Warp View
    In this Pro Tools tutorial Russ shows how to use a feature in Pro Tools to ‘Warp Audio’ which is part of the Pro Tools Elastic Audio settings. Warp view allows the user to move audio around using warp markers and points. He also shows some tricks to make the process easier and to get separate vocals in time with one another.In Warp view, you can manually “time warp” (TCE) audio to correct or adjust the timing of a performance, or create special effects. In Warp view, you can add, move, and delete Warp mark- ers. Warp markers are used to fix a specific point in the audio (typically a detected transient event) to a specific point in the Timeline. In this way, you can apply detailed and nuanced “warping” (TCE) of audio events.Members watch it here

  • 7 Ways To Build A Great Studio Business
    It’s never been harder to make money from producing music. There are a lot of studios and talented producers struggling to make ends meet. Here are 7 tips for not only getting customers but keeping them too, 7 Ways To Build A Great Studio Business. The principles apply for studios both large and small.Know Your CraftThere’s nothing worse than turning up for a session with an engineer who doesn’t know what they’re doing. You are going to have a lot of people coming through your studio many of them will know a lot of stuff about recording and the gear, so you need to be top of your game. It certainly doesn’t engender confidence and people remember stuff like this, they will probably tell their friends and colleagues too. Being known for a negative is not a good way to try and build a successful studio business.Have A Great AttitudeEven if you know everything there is about making great recordings (highly unlikely) the last thing people visiting your studio need is a bad attitude. The creative process is hard enough at the best of times, remember that some of the people visiting your studio have no idea what the process entails. Even if they do they will still be anxious about getting things right. When it comes to your customers remember that they are the star - not you. Go the extra mile.Make Sure Everything WorksA fully working studio is essential, that means no dodgy cables, crashing computers, out of tune instruments and cracked software that’s likely to crash. If something does go wrong then my advice is credit the client for any hours lost, it may not be your fault but it certainly isn’t their fault either. You may have to give them $150 back, but by not doing so you may lose thousands!Be Ready To WorkIt never ceases to surprise me how many sessions I turn up to  where the engineer is the last to arrive. Then they spend an hour pissing around getting set-up before anything happens. That’s a sure fire way of getting the session off to a bad start. If the session starts at 9am then be there in plenty of time to get the studio up and running, the session set-up and the coffee machine on. A small tip, if you offer WIFI (and you should) then make sure the password is clearly displayed so that your visitors do not need to ask for it.Offer Something Unique Of course it seems like madness to turn away work, especially if you are quiet, but being a specialist is the best way to get a good reputation. If you record Country then i…
