Re: Meditation on FR4x

Back when I was doing the pro wedding photographer thing, I did not have 2 of everything, I had *3* of almost everything... lol. The idea being that as a paid pro, you have to be ready for pretty much anything. ;) Oh, I found a youtube unboxing and review of the Touchmix and I was trying to pay spe...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

As I mention in a previous post, it is a great time to be alive... the amount of choice and variations available are there "en force" to accommodate any need and budget. All one has to do is define one's needs and there is a solution out there. on the road the portable recorders (tascam, zoom) can ...

Sounds like a RF connector for coax??? Not sure if this is the correct type of connector for audio mics?

Re: Meditation on FR4x

My point is, if you are going to invest in a mixer, go with Touchmix or similar. It covers everything you need in one compact package. Mixer and recorder. Just plug in your instruments.
I would think this is the wave of the future and prices are bound to go down.

Re: No [link] function on FR-8x?!

What function? Jerry, I think what he meant was like my old FR7 in order to play/program 2 sounds like orchestra and accordion you had to go through the extra process of hitting a link button. Not so on our models! We have buttons to select orchestra, organ, accordion on our boxes... I think that w...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

It appears we need to simplify and dig in our pockets. Spend the $900+ and get the QSC Touchmix or similar... ... Or you could spend $35 for a MIDI interface and use it along with the laptop? This is yet another aspect of recording that I have not touched, but I do have this interface, it does work...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

It appears we need to simplify and dig in our pockets. Spend the $900+ and get the QSC Touchmix or similar. Forget the PC. Record on external hard drive, do the mix on the QSC and recorded it to a stereo Channel on you favorite DAW. Something I am seriously thinking about? Unless you want to record ...

My first digital accordion show demo....

I am not doing this show to sell the Roland accordions, just want to expose accordions in general. I like sharing information without strings attached...I am excited that a client lets me pick a subject for my shows. These are done in a local library with a seperate room to the side that can seat 10...

I love to sing

I love to sing. one of my passions. Remember this song "You'll Never Walk Alone"... Set my accordion down for this one. Used the backing style on my Korg PA3X. A different mix...do not ask me what? I think the reverb plugin is called "old reverb"? I did mess up on a chord towards the end but only on...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

I have a Yamaha MG12XU. Unless someone knows different, it is only one channel USB interface no different from your steinberg. I tried the USB on this and it made noise. Probably something I adjust or connections. But do not want to deal with it at this time. Not sure about Behringer? Indeed you ar...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

The reason I got the 4 channel interface is to do demos without overdub. I just play in real time, fix the mistakes then mix...I do not want to give the client a sound bigger then I truly am. "do not want to give the client a sound bigger than I truly am" and "fix the mistakes then mix" seem a bit ...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

Hi Jerry, I see you are using a Mackie with FireWire interface. How do you use this these days when FireWire is a thing of the past and no laptops support it? I ask as I was offered a FireWire mixer the other month and I couldn’t see how to shoehorn it into my preferred setup. I’m still using my St...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

I like the Presonus name, they are pretty well respected in the industry. The nice thing about using an interface, is if you need it loud but don't want to disturb the neighbors, just listen through the headphones cranked up to what you like. That is a big advantage using the Roland in this kind of...

I just got a new interface., 4 channel. Now I can put the accordion on a seperate channel and mix with vocals, accompliment. Do this on Cakewalk. Cool! What kind of interface do you have?

Re: Meditation on FR4x

for what it's worth I think the mix is okay as a whole it is clean and pleasant but if the aim was to let the accordion shine, then you have to give it some presence (level it up, not much) I am compressing the accordion. In this mix I brought up the output gain of the compressor module for the acc...

Re: Meditation on FR4x

Nice! That said, I think that the backtrack sounds like it is the star of the piece, not the accordion, meaning I think that the accompaniment track seems louder than the accordion. Am the only one? :) Also, don't be afraid to place the entire song there, it's lovely! Meditation: I just got a new i...
