  1. The 32-Bit Float audio recording revolution and its HUGE headroom before clipping (making clipping and gain staging for it a thing of the past) is underway. DAWs and VSTs have been using it a long time for internal processing. Zoom may have have been first out of the gate with a consumer audio interface - this one:. https://www.amazon.com/Zoom-UAC-232-Converter-Interface-Headphone/dp/B0BW1VDHNS/ref=asc_df_B0BW1VDHNS/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=647293221758&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=9200862543381157809&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9009415&hvtargid=pla-1968708094295&psc=1&mcid=df63d616fb4f3e5bbf09b08b69b770d6
  2. LOL Sorry, but I really thought that was pretty funny.
  3. If you do get that guitar, get the see-thru purple sunburst version of it. I think it looks the coolest. it may also be the least expensive of the colors available for it. Double-plus!! ++ ++
  4. Wes. Dude. There is only one Bruce Hornsby. Listen to him . . . do it multiple times a day if need be. Ignore all the rest. The rest pale in comparison.
  5. WTF? I'm supposed to be having fun doing music? Hmm. I must be doing it wrong. Welcome to my nightmare, Palmiro. David
  6. Video killed the radio star. I have a Youtube music channel that I do not upload anything to. f*ck Youtube. That's my "strategy."
  7. The Google app for Android or iOS has Google Voice Assistant that you activate by clicking the microphone icon in the Google search window, or by simply saying "Hey Google." After that, ask "What song is this?" or click on "search song" if that icon comes up. Then hum or sing da-d-a-das (that's what I do) of the melody in question for 10-15 seconds. After "listening," Google Voice Assistant will display known songs matching that melody. It can be pretty useful.
  8. Save your Vocaroo recording as an .mp3, then upload that .mp3 file as an attachment to a post you make in a forum here on Songstuff.
  9. I just finished watching a documentary on Gordon Lightfoot. I had forgotten what a truly great songwriter he is, and I've been listening to his stuff again. In my opinion, this is still one of the best songs ever recorded.
  10. He's a musical artist. If you're a musician, record producer and songwriter - you're a musical artist. https://artists.teamwass.com/music/rick-beato/ So, let's agree to disagree about that. I have watched and liked many of his videos. I think he crossed the line here - regardless of whether he did it to make money.
  11. He's entitled to his opinions. But, I think he should have kept them to himself and to private discussions with others. This went way beyond analysis: He was trashing these songs. I personally find it very distasteful when a musical artist publicly trashes the creative works of other musical artists. Millions of people love these songs. He's insulting them too. The world is full of non-artist art critics. We shouldn't be criticizing the works of each other unless criticism by peers is being asked for. Anyway, that's how I feel.
  12. No worries, Greg. I just wanted to clarify why I am not posting for critique, and I appreciate you clarifying what you were saying. You were talking about . . . for lack of a better term . . . drive-by-posters looking only to get without giving back. David
  13. Your mixes sound damn good, Bro. You don't need a "mentor" for mixing. Your ears are all you need. Trust them. Your sound choices though are another matter - a B3? WTF? <heh-heh> I couldn't resist. What's next, a Fender Rhodes? <ducking while yankin' your chain> David
  14. For those of you who don't know, this is my second go round as a member here. I was a very active member here years ago. and I can't help but be surprised that many of you seem to think that the critique forums here are currently quite "active." From my perspective, compared to how they used to be, the critique forums seem like graveyards. Anyway . . . I feel I need to address this from Greg. I am only posting my stuff in the Showcase. I am not posting my stuff in a critique forum But, Greg, I am not an "elitist." I am simply being true to myself. I have been writing, playing, and recording music for a long, long, long time. When I first joined here, I was just starting to re-engage with music after a long hiatus from it. All I had in terms of gear back then was a cheap acoustic guitar, a mic, and Reaper to record. I was still able to write good songs, but my arrangements and recordings were rudimentary. Over time, I steadily upgraded my guitars, my DAW, my mic, etc. I'm not in band where I have the opinions of bandmates to consider. I don't collaborate, so I don't have the opinions of collaborators to consider. I am now at the point where music, including the recording of it, is something that's solely between me, my muse, and the universe of sounds. I don't post in the critique forum, simply because I have also come to the point where I can be honest with myself, and know that I sincerely do not care what anyone else thinks of my work. You think I should change this part of my lyrics? I don't care. You think this aspect of my arrangement or this mixing choice I made is problematic? I don't care. It would only be counterproductive for me and for the critique forum to post my stuff in a critique forum here. However, if I think I might have something constructive to offer, I will still comment on stuff others post in a critique forum here. I will also participate in discussions of things here if I think I might have something to contribute. But, for my work, all I want to do is archive it and share it. I don't think that makes me an elitist. I certainly don't feel that way or have that mindset. However, if John/Songstuff thinks I come off that way and that's not the type of member it wants, that's cool. I will understand. Just let me know, and I'll stop Showcasing my stuff. Thanks, David
