    Northumbrian pipes actually sound quite good. Not technically bagpipes but similar enough. I think I'm still banned from using them though.

    Video Game Music for live Instruments.

    Only skimmed through it as I'm short on time but it looks great fun to watch!
  3. I do, but most of what I record is done using virtual instruments so it controls pretty much everything for me.

    Couple of questions about Sonarworks

    Interesting option, I'll try putting a high pass filter on to see what effect that has. I'm using Yamaha HS7 monitors and Yamaha says this about the frequency range 43Hz - 30kHz (-10dB), 55Hz - 24kHz (-3dB) frequency response Without measuring to find out for sure, the issue with my living room is that it's square and bass frequencies vanish in the middle and are only present in the corners. So I guess I'm wondering whether investment in a good pair of open back headphones or Sonarworks would be best as there's no space for bass traps.

    Couple of questions about Sonarworks

    I've looked into bass traps before but unfortunately my room is my living room and to get anything in the corners would mean blocking the door, removing the TV and removing my PC (which would defeat the purpose!) My main issue is phase cancellation of bass. It's almost non existent anywhere other than the corners of the room. I can't mix on my monitors at all as I'm flying blind. It really sucks!

    Couple of questions about Sonarworks

    All wise words! I have a terrible sounding room in a rented flat with no room for treatment (I need so many bass traps) so I'm trying to find a way to makes a little better. I may be moving soonish hence why I thought Sonarworks for my monitors would be good. If it doesn't help in this room then maybe it will in the next.

    Couple of questions about Sonarworks

    Cheers mate To be honest they have to put up with me mixing my tracks so they'll be used to weird sounds 70-80db should be ok if I do it at the right time of day. I thought that too about the headphones so thanks for confirming. It's between getting better headphones for mixing or trying Sonarworks for my speakers at the moment so I'm weighing up both.
  10. I'm use the headphone edition at the moment for my Audio Technica M50x headphones. I'm also using a pair of superlux 668b headphones. I'm considering upgrading the latter to a pair of DT 880 pros. However, if I'm using Sonarworks will they offer better quality than my current headphones? All 'phones will be flattened by Sonarworks so will so will sound somewhat similar I guess? Also, I'm looking at getting the room correction version too. Any idea of how loud the calibration will be? I don't want to annoy the neighbours!

    I struggled to get this one together. I've gone through a lot of variations on it before finding a small part that I liked then built the track around it. Hope you enjoy.

    There's nothing like a deadline to focus the mind and get you doing only what's needed to finish the track.

    So, bagpipes are cool this month? Asking for a friend.
