1. Didja accidentally blow through the whole, "We're using our real names" thing on registration? No problem, just send me (Mike) a Conversation message and I'll get you sorted, by which I mean hammered-into-obedient-line because I'm SO about having a lot of individuality-destroying, oppressive shit all over my forum.

Mike's New Rig

Discussion in 'Custom Projects' started by Mike Verta, Oct 1, 2020.

  1. Through my Roland DS7. I used a slight mid-side EQ because I felt that some of the sections were a bit too disconnected or simply too wide (just for my personal taste). Of course, I can just take that out (normally when having control over single sections it helps to move things together.. Let me know if you want a version without that.
     
  2. I have only ever used mid-side to widen things, not to narrow them. Curious. However, the width is built-in from the samples/rooms. Not hearing the disconnection you're describing, but then again I'm on different monitors. I do like the idea of finding more presence in the mids...
     
  3. Still doing crazy things to the imaging. This is the UA Studer A800 plugin?

    Well, yes the Studer A800 (UAD) is still there. Normally the Studer should not do this. However, I used an Audio Grabber from Chrome to get the file from Soundcloud, not sure if that is there suspect here. A bit strange though. Maybe that happened while grabbing the file from sc. Not sure though. But yeah, take out what you find useful. The Midrange definitely could open the sound. Also, donĀ“t forget to tame the transients on the trumpets/Trombones when you go very loud. Sometimes they produce harsh tones.
     
  5. My Focals image with a precision that is off the charts. I've never heard anything like them. I constantly hear new things in mixes I know like the back of my hand. I'll grab one of those UA accelerators and that plug-in and see what it does at the source.
     
  6. One thing..not sure what percussions you are going for. I actually think the Hollywood Percussion and also the Cine Percussion is still a really good choice. Specifically the Bassdrum 40 inch in Cine Percussion..has some really bam and oompf and you have a lot of control with the micings to dial in a really great sound. That Room..is just great..
     
  7. I thought i was the only one spending time with porn in the middle of composition on multi screensetup. )
     

  8. Which libraries for woodwinds brass and strings? I still didn't find my true love. Libraries which are playable lack the sound quality, those which have quality i can't play any lines with them... I am doomed. Currently i feel not too bad with performance samples caspian, very playable, musical sampling adventure strings (Adven and per articulation) and spitfire woodwinds (layer them with VSL Woodwinds) and Joby percussion. It seems to me it is most playable setup i have so far. but the overall sound is not that boombastic enough to be a final product.

  11. @Mike Verta Any plans to do a "Template Balancing" v 2 with the new setup, or an adendum for how you've simplified?
