Re: Pan Noir

If you wanted to share tips and tricks about improving microphone recordings at the Merging cellar, I am open to that idea.

Re: Musicians' Breathing

I use a directional mic positioned so that it better rejects the breathing.

Re: Headphones

AKG K 702 and Lake People G 109. Hours of fatigue-free listening. Neutral, which is good, but can be difficult to judge low frequency levels.

Re: Pan Noir

And one more ... I had already experimented with different microphones and found the combination of condenser (main signal) and dynamic microphone (added) interesting. I do some first sound shaping by selecting the jfet or the tube MicPre for the main mics. I also use absorbers and measures for cont...

Re: Pan Noir

I am convinced often stupidity lies in the eye of the beholder. So, just to clarify the interplay between technical and artistic perfection, I wanted to give a counterweight to the quotation from Spinal Tap "It's a fine line between clever and, you know, stupid..." But somehow I managed to...

Re: Pan Noir

Thanks for the hints. Just skipped through some examples. I found the strings and choir recordings to be very good. For my popular music approach I am often trying to get as direct as possible. The Uke competes with a drumkit (and wins, if necessary). In one track the acoustic guitar will sound more...

Re: Pan Noir

Okay, now I get it, at least I think so. Pan Noir is not meant for main tracks, but for additional tracks. In classical recordings that would be the spot mics, while in multitrack recording it is the other way around: the stereo mic for room ambience is the low-level addition. Got a nice result with...

Re: Pan Noir

Can it be that Pan Noir is meant as a send effect, similar to a reverb effect producing only Early Reflections? I got nice results using it that way. I used two subgroups, one with a left panned and one with a right panned instance of Pan Noir and did send the left panned/right panned mono tracks of...

Re: Overdubbing, Latency and Headphones

"It was so much easier with a multi-track tape machine!" Yes, those buttons and footswitches were made for the minds of musicians, not computer specialists. I miss them sometimes too... If I understand correctly, you want to route the audio input in RME's TotalMix directly to the audio out...

Re: Which ASIO interface do you use ?

RME Hammerfall HDSPe AIO in conjunction with a HDSPe rayDAT. No problems so far. S/R changes are most safe between closing and restarting Pyramix. Also RME's addon "DigiCheck" can lock the samplerate (needs to be closed before S/R change, too). Minimum latency depends on Motherboard and it...

Re: Overdubbing, Latency and Headphones

It is sincerely not my intention to speak any words of doom. You were right, I meant headphone, not microphone. The right in-ear headphone is fixated outside of the right ear. "... so that the natural acoustic performance can be heard clearly". I use in-ear headphones because they produce ...

decimal point

Especially for manual levelling (clip gain), but for other tasks too, I am using the numeric pad to enter values. Is it possible to have Pyramix use the decimal point key as it is defined by the Windows Locale (settings - date, time and number format)? Or maybe for each numeric entry accept both the...

Re: Overdubbing, Latency and Headphones

I can not completely answer your question, but maybe offer some usable ideas for multitrack arrangements. I have been fighting latency for a long time. My personal opinion is: latency always wins. The latency problem does not occur with the playback. The musician interacts with what he/she hears in ...

Re: Pan Noir

Thank you for raising the level. I assume, multitrack recording/mixing and classical microphone recordings have their own different skillsets. Explanations like yours create a link between what we are hearing and what may possibly be the reason for why we are hearing this. Maybe comparable to Experi...

Re: Pan Noir

I was searching for a manual of the Pan Noir plugin. I did not find one. Except for the parameter names and the plugins user interface I had to go by ears. Where did you find the manual? In my case, with the Pan Noir's divergence parameter set to 0, it made a difference whether the ambient signal wa...
