Producers - Discussion / Acoustic Treatment
« on: February 18, 2011, 09:12:46 PM »
The project studioz come a long way. no mo Major cola coca parties for them Record Majors, 'er body  @ home or some
an excerpt

PART 1: ACOUSTIC TREATMENT

There are four primary goals of acoustic treatment: 1) To prevent standing waves and acoustic interference from affecting the frequency response of recording studios and listening rooms; 2) to reduce modal ringing in small rooms and lower the reverb time in larger studios, churches, and auditoriums; 3) to absorb or diffuse sound in the room to avoid ringing and flutter echoes, and improve stereo imaging; and 4) to keep sound from leaking into or out of a room. That is, to prevent your music from disturbing the neighbors, and to keep the sound of pa**ing trucks from getting into your microphones.

'nuff, what we doin @ them project studios to do that critical listenin & mixin' specially them rectangular squarish rooms


One easy way to reduce noise from a computer is to line the surrounding surfaces with absorbent material.

I managed to get studio sound diffusion and absorbtion mats estimate 3 by ~2 meters each, need to get the cutttin, is the roof necessary for treatment. I know Ba** traps is a must & 38% listenin position with tweets at ear height,  Got them front firing ports. this hear topic we need to resolve Major 1

Geek Section / wrist watch phones
« on: March 13, 2009, 10:11:49 AM »
The LG GD910 is the first 3G wrist watch phone that allows voice commands and video calls. It packs a 1.4" TFT touchscreen, quad-band GMS/3G/HSDPA with video-call support, Bluetooth connectivity and a nice looking Flash-based user interface.

There's a workaround for texting too, though obviously on the receiving end only - LG GD910 has text-to-speech capabilities for your convenience. Alright, maybe there will be a way to send text too, but the screen estate does not exactly imply typing bliss. There is also a secondary CIF camera if 3G video calls are your thing. Despite its small size GD910 uses an appropriate Li-Ion battery allowing near 250 hours of stand-by and 2 hours full of talk time.






The device will hit the shelves in Q2 of this year

Samsung S1100 watch phone

Its features include a full touchscreen display, Bluetooth, and a speakerphone etc..




now's a reason not to forget your celly & with a spoofy bluetoof headset u can be just like Bond
small form factor solid state devices are packin punches this year....

Here are some nice templates for FL from the MPC 60 Groove Quantization.
Don't really use FL, if anyone can verify the files, that'll be cool

Drop these into your [FLSTUDIO]\data\patches\scores\quantization folder.

Producers - Discussion / Hardware Emulations
« on: April 11, 2008, 04:16:56 PM »
thought bout this topic for a while.
Could we make a list of Hardware Emulations modeled on legendary instruments:

I'll set this off:
Mellotron  -->>  GForce - M-Tron/Pro   ~ 2 Gb





A Mellotron is a tape replay keyboard. This means that under every key is a length of magnetic tape that is moved past a playback head whenever that key is pressed. Each piece of tape has a sound (for example, a sustained flute note) whose pitch corresponds with the keyboard note that it is under. After a key has been pressed and then released, the tape is pulled quickly back to its starting position by a spring. Since each sound is produced by a linear piece of tape rather than an endless loop, the sound can faithfully reproduce the attack phase and then the decay phase of a percussive instrument such as a piano.

While the designer's goal was probably to make it sound exactly like the original instrument that was recorded, the quality of a Mellotron's sound is, perhaps accidentally, distinctly its own. It has been called a 'mutant organ' and its sound is often described as moody and warm. It gives a song a haunting, lonely quality.

The M-Tron captures all of the character of the original instrument by sampling every note of every key and adhering to the eight second limit of each note The principle of the Mellotron was simple - take a 35 note keyboard and have a piece of tape for each note containing real recordings of real players. In this way it was arguably the world's first sampler, with recordings varying from single notes (as in the Flutes sound used on the legendary Strawberry Fields Forever) or entire musical motifs (as in The Beatles' Bungalow Bill)

This instrument was manufactured in various guises between 1963 and 1986 and was used by artists including The Beatles, The Moody Blues' Mike Pinder, Black Sabbath, Rick Wakeman and Genesis' Tony Banks. The instrument faded into semi-obscurity during the 80's and early 90's, but due, in part, to its evocative and unique nostalgic sound, it was rediscovered and used by artists including Oasis, Radiohead, Kasabian and countless others.
