Ok Wyatt

For some strange reason the "guitar only tracks" examples are much louder than the examples with drums and bass. I don't know what is causing it. Hope it's not too annoying.

Martin..that's no problem at all..I just adjusted it to my normal listening
level without thinking..I just listened while I was reading and I have to
tell you this is absolutely great.

What a marvelous bit of instruction you have posted for us!!

I really like the guitar tone that you have dialed into..it's really sweet.
..and it was easy to hear how the bass got lost at first because of the
low freqs from the guitar.

Then how the mix clarified and then got punched out..that was really an
experience.

It is crystal clear..listening to what you are writing about.

Thank you for sharing your way of working, and for going to all the trouble
 to make it so easy to understand..I sure appreciate it,and I know others do too.

Thanks for the kind words, Kara. I appreciate it.

As for writing a book. That would be too presumptuous. I'm not Bob Katz.  Grin
All this information is relatively new to me as well. I only picked it up over the last few months through trial and error. Most of it is very basic but very useful indeed.

I don't know the origin, but it is well quoted that the best way to learn something is to teach it!

I discovered how true that was when trying to explain to repair trainees how televisions worked.

Hey Martin!

The guitar sound adjustments were very interesting and effective. Everything so far is taking up its own space. Sounds clean. Looking forward to the vocal work.

mda detune...wouldn't mind hearing a little more about that and what adjustments you actually made.

Ferrari forever!! Wink

Hi Fred. Thanks for checking it out. Hope to get the vocals finished this week.
Had to pave part of the front lawn this week; you know how it is  Wink

Mda Detune works more or less like a chorus except the effect is quite different. In small amounts it detunes the source just a little bit which thickens the sound. Max uses it quite a lot on his guitarsounds (especially solo guitarwork).

Dank je wel, Marc. Het heeft me wel wat tijd gekost. Voor het goede doel zullen we maar zeggen.  Wink

Just to let you know I've put some new examples up concerning the vocals. They sound more to my liking now. And I skipped the vocal/instrument example without compression since the conversion from wav to mp3 seemed to nullify the difference in some way.

Excelent job Martin
I was waiting for the vocal part  Grin

Actually I was surprised... when I listened to the vox only with the fx on it, I was convinced that there was to much reverb on it. But when I hear it in the mix it sounds perfect !
I realy learned something here.

Thanks for your big effort, believe me it was realy worth it !  Cool
