With Josh's comment in mind I try to at least narrow down the answer - Audio bus This is an auxiliary audio channel (or track). Instead of adjusting each individual channel you have (one for each track) you can send the output of tracks, or create a group that contains selected tracks, and send the mixed output of these to a audio bus. This allow you to ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

Walk to your nearest window, run your finger up and down the glass. That's how much it feels like a real fader. I have both an Artist Control and a iPad with VControl. For the most part, I only use the iPad when I'm editing/mixing on my remote system and am away from my Artist Control. If you already have an iPad, plonking down the $50 for V-Control Pro is ...

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 ...

That is Apple's Logic in mixer view. You can see another view of the mixer under the heading "Pro mixing in all its glory" here.

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 ...

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 ...

I use this semi-regularly, especially since I sold my Digi 002 a few months ago. Overall, I like using V-Control, but I do miss having physical faders. Without the feedback of touching a real fader, you sometimes have to take your eyes off the task at hand to make sure you touch the right area. Still, having the ability to control plugin GUIs by touching ...

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 ...

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

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.

I don't know anyone who actually writes music in a DAW. DAW's are good for moving your basic tune to a more finished piece. Typically you'll get your concept from strumming a guitar, playing on a piano, singing a melody etc. or just jamming with the band. A simple next step is to pop a basic click track into a DAW and lay down a version, which you can then ...

In addition to using the DAW to mimic traditional songwriting steps -- doodling on a VST piano, or jamming with drum loop and arpeggiated bass -- you could use the DAW's features to seed the creative process. How about try the different preset sounds (as you suggested) and try them with different effects too: a flanged piano will lead to you playing ...

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, ...

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 ...
