I believe you are looking for REAPER It has an API and its own plugin language you can use. Above and beyond that it is one of the most customizable DAWs out there, and affordable to boot.

The ReaFir plugin that comes with Reaper is pretty excellent. And you don't HAVE to have Reaper to use it, because you can download all of their VST plugins free. ReaPlugs Download Insert the plugin Change to "Subtract" mode Select a range of audio that you can profile the noise to be removed and enable "Repeat" (so that it loops over the noise over and ...

less tracks per project. less plugins opened. if you use your factory soundcard (the one on your motherboard) you'll probably suffer from latency and a bad signal/noise ratio. But you still can definitely work with it (music, mixing, and even small movie project(s)). FYI : when a computer is too limitated for your work, don't forget you can always render ...

It depends on your device. Some Android phones support a headset input through the headphone jack (such as through this device [Traveler Guitar MI-10]). In that case, a simple adapter can allow you to feed an audio line in. Other devices allow what is called host support for USB. If this is the case, then you may be able to use a USB audio interface if ...

Here (http://www.cambridge-mt.com/ms-mtk.htm) you can find an online download library of more than 50 unprocessed multitrack projects, all of which are free to use for educational purposes. Each project is provided as a simple ZIP archive containing WAV files at 24-bit/44.1kHz resolution, which can easily be imported into practically any DAW system. In ...

A few quick notes At stage volumes, you really really want to be using a SSD Drive. You will have issues with normal platter style HDD's at stage volumes due to vibration Even with a SSD, you're going to want to sit the laptop on some vibration damping type material. Grab some mopads (designed for acoustically decoupling speakers) and sit it on that, ...

You need to connect the MIDI OUT of your MIDI controller keyboard to the MIDI IN of one of the sound modules, then connect the MIDI THROUGH of that sound module to the MIDI IN of the other. You'll need to put each sound module on a separate MIDI channel. The MIDI output from your track in the DAW software will need to output on the MIDI channel assigned to ...

What you are looking for is a Dugan automixer. This can be acquired as either a hardware processing device, as software inside an existing hardware device such as a mixer, or as a VST plugin. I strongly don't recommend you attempt to re-engineer the Dugan algorithm with discrete plugins - this will be re-inventing the wheel and will ultimately fail as ...

JACK Audio will do this on Linux, OSX and Windows. Soundflower is similar, but only works on OSX. Rewire must be explicitly supported by all applications involved in the audio routing process.

It's now possible to do this in Ableton Live using a Max for Live device from Chaos Culture:

You have the minimum down already - a laptop, a DAW, and some headphones. You don't need anything else. Other things may be useful to you, but aren't necessary. If you are classically trained, you may want notation software. But even then, a good notebook and pen will probably do just fine. Whatever software I end up with, I'd like my process to feel a ...

Phase is one of those things that is a lot more complex in reality than it first seems from the theory. Sound waves are transmitted through oscillating air pressure. Electronically, it is captured as a signal that maps the pressure changes to changes in electrical voltage. If you had a fixed frequency wave, it would look like a sine wave going up and down ...

Adobe Audition has this feature: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/audition/cs/using/WS58a04a822e3e5010548241038980c2c5-7f30.html Excerpt: The Noise Reduction/Restoration > Noise Reduction effect dramatically reduces background and broadband noise with a minimal reduction in signal quality. This effect can remove a combination of noise, including tape hiss, ...

Yes I made an lv2 plugin to be used with linux daws it's called noise-repellent https://github.com/lucianodato/noise-repellent

Give Matlab a go, there's quite a few resources out there to get you started but if you have programmed at all before you should be able to pick it up fairly easily, I've seen it used mainly in acoustics applications but I'm sure you could find another possibly more creative use.

Maybe http://puredata.info/? Might be easier than javascript for doing complex stuff.

Not really an answer, but a bit long for comments… To echo Dave's sentiment; as owner of many old reel-reel machines, gathering dust in a junk room I would heartily agree. Keep them for if you ever need to rescue something. I have tape baking facilities for that eventuality, which have seen occasional yet important use over the years. For all other ...

It's generally expected that you do a little bit of research before asking questions here and that you only ask one question. In this case the manual for this device answers the question quite clearly. The Amp Out provides a 1/4 inch mono output of guitar processed with amp modeling and effects and optimized for connecting to the input of a guitar ...

Vienna Ensemble Pro Take a look at Vienna Ensemble Pro (VEP, VEPro). There is a Master/Slave feature that let you process VST instruments (and ordinary VST effects) on other computers (and you can mix Macs and PCs). The master sends MIDI commands to the slave, and the slave returns the result samples. All through a plain cabled ethernet connection. Here ...

Yes, audio software, be it a DAW or a live mixing console, do use multithreading and multicore functionality. Example 1 : Pyramix MassCore technology “hides” one or more cores in a multiple CPU computer and then creates a “pipe” directly between the software and those hidden cores to essentially create an Intel-powered DSP based system. Example 2 :...

stick with 48/24 without applying any dither? Dither adds noise. Noise * 100 tracks = more noise Use any DAW. Literally any DAW. They all allow varying degrees of automation, but there is no DAW "sound designers use" (pro tip: everyone uses two or more) - whatever you, yourself, can do it quickest or easiest in, is what you should be using. I'd use a two-...

I recommend looking into a free online course from a site like Coursera . There are also plenty of books available: The Sound Reinforcement Handbook by Gary Davis or Modern Recording Techniques by Huber could be a good resource for learning about the subjects you mentioned.

The tool you linked can widen the stereo image of the music and it does this by inverting the signal on one channel relative to the other and adding a portion of the right channel to the left and vice versa. Thus if a particular sound were a little bit "left" it would become "more" left as you increase the stereo enhancement. The meter you mention gives ...

Yes, Pro Tools has something extremely similar. Unlike Pro Tools, Logic does not have playlists. The easiest way to look at a 'playlist' is simply as a 'take'. In Pro Tools, you can either record over the previously recorded region, or each recording can have its own playlist. Even if you didn't use playlists initially, it is easy to tell Pro Tools to ...

Loudon Stearns of Berkleemusic.com runs Introduction to Music Production course on Coursera. It's free. I can't recommend Loudon's courses high enough. If you hooked up, you may also choose to take his paid Berkleemusic.com course. It will blow you away. I promise. As for the choice of gear and software, it strongly depends on the kind of music you want to ...

Personally I prefer Boar for version control of binary files. That is the exact use case of that system - mostly used for photos, etc. On the other hand, I can also recommend you the git Large File System. That means you can stay with git syntax/toolchain without a need of setting up boar.

Took the above advice. This has been working great for me with git. Logic Pro X 10+. .gitignore .DS_Store Project\ File\ Backups Undo\ Data.nosync Autosave DisplayState.plist WindowImage.jpg Haven't tried it, but splice looks interesting as well.
