Listen to your song with a fresh perspective?

01 February 2012 - 09:09 PM

You know how when you're working on a song, you often lose touch with how a fresh, outside person hears it, and thus can't tell if you're doing something wrong? Is there some trick you can use to hear your song from a fresh perspective? (not counting just putting it aside for a week, which isn't very productive.) I know that in digital art, if you reverse your image horizontally, you can suddenly see it anew, and immediately spot your mistakes. Does music have such a trick?

(If not, someone should develop one. I'm SURE there's a way.)

Account issues

01 February 2012 - 09:01 PM

Admin, I can't login with my usual account, "Dario D." (it was dormant for at least a year, I think.) The login won't take my old password, and, after doing 'reset password', it won't take the new one either. (I'm currently logged in via Facebook Connect, but that disconnects me from my old account.)

Can anything be done about this?

Pro Tools hardware?

28 October 2010 - 02:58 PM

Okay, so, it seems you need some external hardware if you want to use Pro Tools 8 LE.

What's it for, exactly, aside from processing your effects? Also, is there a cheap way to do this?

What I'm looking to do is basically just write music, w' Reason (in other words, make digital music, for production). I'm not using any external instruments or recordings.

(been Googling this for a while, but can't find many specifics about what exactly the hardware is for. I don't know any Pro Tools or music terminology, thus I'm just searching for stuff like "mbox", and skimming Wikipedia articles)

Choosing a composing/music app

03 December 2009 - 08:22 PM

I've been doing quite some digging around, but can't decide which of the following apps would be best for my needs... Pro Tools LE 8 (I'll be using an X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card, at least for now) Sonar 7 Producer I want access to samples such as this (http://www.eastwestsamples.com/details.php?cd_index=1128), which is why I'm only looking at the above 2 apps for now. Any suggestions, and things I need to know? The music I want to make will pretty much be like the examples in that link above, and I'll be using Vista/7 64-bit (I really don't think my Mac Mini will like running any of these apps. It doesn't even like Google Earth).

Passing melodies to a composer?

14 May 2008 - 06:34 AM

Hi all. Probably a more odd question: If a composer were to come here looking for a composing/arranging buddy with which to pass melodies to, is it likely that he'd find anyone willing to take those melodies, and arrange them? Here's the deal... I'm stacked to the ceiling with crap to do (www.deefrag.com), and don't have time to arrange some of the songs I want to produce. So, what I'm wondering is if it's likely that I would find anyone willing to go co-op on some these, for whatever purpose: whether to work on his arranging portfolio, or just create some cool music. I'm not looking for anyone YET; I'm just wondering if it's even worth trying. I know from the video game mod community that there are certain types of people you can find with ease, and certain types that you almost can't find at all. In the music arena, I wouldn't know what types of people are around. :) [Edited by - Dario D on May 14, 2008 3:10:39 PM]
