We call 'wet', the return from an FX processor. 'Dry' is the input signal to the effect. So if you turn 'wet' down and 'dry' up, the signal will pass through the effects unit unchanged. The reason many effects units have a dry/wet setting is so you can either use them as insert effects, or send effects. An insert effect is one where all of a channel's ...

Yes, pretty much any delay - hardware or software - can do this. Delay devices have a 'feedback' setting which you would want to turn to zero, and a wet / dry setting which you would want to turn to 100% wet.

It has to do with the MP3 codec algorithm. I don't know the exact science behind it but it's something you have to deal with when using MP3's because it can't be prevented.

Solution: Send a MIDI SysEx "reset all" message. What worked for me: Download MIDI-OX for Windows or KMidimon for Linux. I use Windows so these steps will continue with MIDI-OX. Start MIDI-OX. Go to Options->MIDI Devices. Select your MIDI input ("E-MU Xmidi1X1 Tab" for me). I actually selected Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth for my MIDI output, but I don't ...

The most likely culprit is that you are using a non-integer frame-rate with your camera, but when you are bringing the footage into the computer it is finding it's way into the timeline at a different frame-rate. Check the frame-rate of the camera. Sometimes the frame-rate is not what it seems.

Here I am slightly older and slightly "smaarter". I attended a system tuning training by Rational Acoustics and was able to get an answer to my question! Mix coherency refers to the ratio of change between a measurement and reference signal. When tuning a system you would typically use software like SMAART or SysTune to generate a test signal (pink noise)....

Uh, clap your hands once. If that doesn't give you an in-the-face clue in the audio waveforms, I don't know what will. Movie takes use clapperboards for a reason.

in Ableton you have following parameters on every Delay Plug-In: Simple Delay, Ping Pong Delay, Filter Delay and Granular Delay. The time between the synced Repeats is determined by the Numbers in the Yellow Boxes (Lower numbers -> faster delay). By the Number with the % you can let the Delay groove by offsetting it from the synced Repeat. By pressing the ...

In general the order matters a great deal. You'd generally want your chain to go something like Filters/EQ -> Compression -> Time effects (Reverb/Delay). EQ first because you usually wouldn't want to be compressing frequencies that aren't going to be there after passing through the EQ. Specifically with Reverb / Delay that would probably come down to ...

That is most likely a real Space Echo (RE-201 / RE-301) and not some plugin chain. We have one in the studio and use it for exactly such things. Those tape delay devices are very tough to imitate using software. The exact same question has been discussed at Gearslutz - one reply states that Kevin is using the RE-20 Space Echo (the pedal version) along with ...

I don't think anyone would advise you to migrate your tracks/stems using the mp3 format.. especially when using them with uncompressed files in the same project. Not forgeting the loss of quality/imagery in your production. Recommend mp3 only as a final mix format for distrobution on iTunes etc..

The difference is that "moving" means relative to the medium through which the waves are traveling. So if the source is moving relative to the medium, the waves actually propagate differently than if the source is stationary relative to the medium. "Notice that in both cases, moving observer and moving source, if the source and observer are moving together, ...

I generally call the tool I use for this "a sound guy". You can automate it though by doing some dynamics processing on the input to the effects unit. You need to use a device called an expander on the feed going to the effects unit (or have an effects unit that provides it's own expander). An expander is a lot like a compressor, but the ratio goes in the ...

I have experienced the same issue, including just yesterday preparing for a live performance, and thought the unit was broken. Apparently based on your post, it is a bug in the 1x1 itself. To resolve the problem, unplugging the 1x1 and re-inserting it usually rectifies the issue. Very annoying... This effectively resets the unit.

Had the same problem with E-Mu MIDI 1x1, windows 7 64 bit. Disconnectng and reconnecting the MIDI USB solved the mystery delay. Thanks.

This exact thing is happening to me. I tried updating the drivers, but that didn't help. The only consistent feature that seems to take the lag away is to unplug the USB device, wait at least 10 seconds, then plug it back in. Once plugged in again, it works like a charm. Having the device plugged in during boot-up slows it down for some reason. I'm ...
