  1. Never managed to get that work, would love to though, that’s the thing that’s the biggest headache for me atm
  2. tried it as well and it loads a lot quicker, however the zoom in/out and pan functions aren't nearly as intuitive or quick as resolve so it's a no from me (for now), but thanks for the heads up, I'll certainly play around with it!
  3. Another fanboi of DaVinci Resolve. It is a bit of a learning curve, but, once you get to grips with the basics it's a brilliant bit of kit and the free version is better than a lot of paid versions of other editors
  4. Behringer wing? https://www.thomann.de/gb/behringer_wing.htm#bewertung
  5. Garageband isn't a video editor. As far as I can tell you can only load a video and then add sound to it (from garageband). You can't edit the actual video, ie cut scenes, add transitions, have multiple camera timelines etc. For that you need a dedicated video editing program like adobe premiere pro, Final cut or, as I use, Da Vinci Resolve (which is free). The advantage of Da Vinci Resolve as well as being free is that it also has it's own built in DAW called Fairlight should you wish to use it, it even lets you load in your own VST plug-ins. It's head and shoulders the best free video editor out there and I've tried loads. Personally, I do my audio capture with Garageband, mix the audio in Reaper and then transfer to Da Vinci Resolve, it sounds a hassle but it really isn't, everything gets saved on a usb stick anyway and it's just a question of loading from there in each program.
  6. I know everyone will recommend what they're currently using (and why not?) if it's good, so I can also recommend alongside the focusrite gear, the Audient iD4, the pre amps sound terrific and the DI line in for guitar and bass is amazing https://studiocare.com/products/audient-id4-2-in-2-out-high-performance-usb-interface-with-scroll-control?variant=31460406460462&currency=GBP&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google+shopping&gclid=CjwKCAjwz6_8BRBkEiwA3p02Vf1pYOZdPsDffsC23BWH1eRB_RCwrJR9ut9ZadVL6_uBsebUZtuLpxoCYhwQAvD_BwE
  7. any idea of what (roughly) settings I should be looking at for the compression on the kick and bass? Thanks for the input.
  8. Thanks to everyone on here for the overwhelming positive feedback and advice regarding the "basics" of achieving a half decent mix. I've learnt a lot in just a week of messages and help online and it just goes to show what a great community we have going here. This was from wednesdays rehearsal, into garageband, mixed on reaper, taking on board all the pointers coming from you guys.
  9. oh boy, whole new can of worms! Just go and get a Focusrite 2i2 and be done with it! pretty much guarantee that will be the vast majority consensus https://focusrite.com/en/usb-audio-interface/scarlett/scarlett-2i2
  10. noted, thanks, I think its in stereo? Panned drums at least.. Edit, the drums weren't panned! Thanks for the heads up!
  11. Hope it's ok to ask for more mix/mastering wisdom on last nights rehearsal attempt at this Queen number? As per previous advice, I've attempted to match the bass to kick, slightly increased guitar volume during solo (about 1.5dB), panned toms a little to left and overhead to right. Added a little reverb to snare and vocals. Put an analog compressor in front of the bass. Each Drum track also had some 2gether Audio RICH treatment as per factory presets (Kick, snare and toms). I left the overhead alone. There's a few [email protected] ups in the actual playing and it was our singers first attempt at giving this a go, but again, it's just for my educational benefit in getting to grips with this mixing malarky. All advice (good & bad) taken on the chin..thanks!
  12. No it's fine, it's just an experiment to be honest, the more feedback the better. The bass player (me) is too busy sorting out the sound and cameras to have time to include himself in any shot, but you're right, I'll get myself in next time! The headstock was a jazz btw with drop d tuner. It's all good, an upward learning curve and any comments appreciated.
  13. wish we'd never sold our XR18, so versatile..
