@Panic - I don't think so! We got hundreds of votes last year, and quite a few from AG.

It's awards time on my show, 20/20. We're picking the top 10 albums of the year.

What's your favourite hip-hop album released in 2010?

I'll give it a shot - but I'm not sure about that! Seems like a roundabout way of doing things. Thanks though!

I drunk a whole bottle of vodka last night. I do that every night, Term says, seemingly apropros of nothing.

Youre livers going to be hurting soon! cracks Jo, the shows promoter, sitting opposite him.

I know, says Term slightly wistfully. I gotta stop, for real. Im starting to feel the effects lately. But you see, Im good. A lot of people would be throwing up their guts right now. I drink so much its like, whatever. I think Im going to put myself in rehabilitation for real. I think its about that time. Maybe around January. I fiend for it. Alcoholism runs very deep in family; its destroyed half of my family. I didnt realise that. My mother kept telling me that like, serious, serious. Now that Im starting to see, Im like, Im kind of destroying myself.

What do you mean sit? Do you mean having to record again or use vocals that have been already recorded?

In both cases, use Sony ACID 7. time stretch there is perfect or use FL if you need to get them mixed in a jiffy. The only thing with FL though is making sure that you blend the two perfect and your mixes should come out from being rewired if you need perfection. The process is longer in both ways...

Er...good advice, but not quite what I was looking for!

I have recorded vocals, and a beat. The beat is one mixed wav file - no separate drums, samples or anything else. I'm trying to sit the vocals in the beat, so it sounds as if it's mixed. Timing isn't a problem.

I'm using Cubase.

In that case well, it will be advisable if you use less compression/maximizing/colouring of any nature. Since you mentioned you're using Cubase, then use a lot of EQ to suite yo mix and remember to NOT COMPRESS, even if it clips.

I haven't used any compression on the master bus - but because it's going to mastering, not because of anything else. What impact would master compression have on sitting the vocal?

I've compressed individual elements and it sounds pretty good so far!

According to what I know, sitting vocals in the mix can best be done with eq. Use different types of it, not just one, and play around with em until you get something that you can be satisfied with.

I know the feeling, mixing without separates is a biatch!

Can you clarify? Do you mean auditioning different EQs to get the correct sound? Or do you mean layering them as insert effects?

I tend to use the EQ on Izotope Ozone, as I find it really easy to work with and pretty transparent.

Cheers. I use a hosting service called Mr Site. They allow only one player in my site, which I use for my studio's audio showreel.

Since the site is largely there to promote my written material and link to my podcast, I'm not too bothered.

Got your page to load on Safari. Must be Chrome bugging out.

Some thoughts:

- Having the page play music automatically is really annoying. Maybe make it an option, rather than a given?
- The Flash, once it's loaded, works well.
- The pages are a little bit tricky to navigate, particularly when switching between the lists of artists.
- Why does the email link on the side of each profile bring up the site's main email?
- The profiles themselves are a little weak - very little relevant info on each artist.
- I don't get the purpose of the blog?

Anyway, the site is a great idea, so keep at it. It just needs to be tweaked a little!

I'm using uncapped 16mb broadband with Chrome, and I couldn't load the page?

Yo Rob i can connect to your website, however there is no music on there man. hence Flash ma nigga.
Your link backs have a problem specially when security policies kick in. What im saying is Flash will take some time to load, but the functionality is superb. Holla back ma nigga, ill design you a page on my site!

Er...you've lost me there mate. I'm not a tech head at all when it comes to Internet. Are you referring to my personal site or AG?

I see your flash intro, but your home page is blank, even upon reloading.

@ Brick - I dig my rap tunes, doggie.

@ Militia - Cubase, although I have Logic too. Why, what are you thinking?

Let's say you're making a rap tune. Let's say your producer used a single sample, slowed down and manipulated, for the beat. That's it - no drums, no ba**, no extra bits. Just this sample. It's really cool though.

You need to sit the vocals on the beat, which is on a single audio track.

Any tips or thoughts on how to proceed? How does one sit the vocal?
