I personally feel USB 2.0 has lots of improvements over 1.1 and definitely worth the upgrade. USB 3.0, not too sure though for audio interfaces. You should be good with 2.0
Damn you guys make me jealous. Where I’m located, getting a fibre internet speed of 8mb is pure happiness and considered luxurious.
A friend of mine was trying it out together with me on his laptop. And it crashed twice during that session. I wonder if it’s bitwig or if it’s the laptop.
Yet to try it myself. How’s bitwig doing for you guys? Price is a little steep, no?
I’d reckon the Scarlett interfaces, like the 18i6 for its really clean and nice pre-amps. http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb12/articles/focusrite-scarlett.htm
Or maybe you would like to try the new M-audio Quad, love the analogue-ish style it has. http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/MTrackQUAD.html
Listen to this track by Allegro120: http://audiojungle.net/item/happy-ukulele/4658536?sso?WT.ac=portfolio_item&WT.seg_1=portfolio_item&WT.z_author=Allegro120 It is mixed GREAT in my opinion and I can’t even get close to this as I’m using it as a reference for my new Ukulele song. Its like he has the magic powers of an extra 5 db
An extra 5 db? that should be our human perception. When you’re mastering, try take note of the RMS not just the peaks. Your peaks might be already hitting the top but if your RMS is just simply low, it’s not gonna sound loud.
The next step is then to maximize the sound. Ozone 5 does a great job on this, having the options switch how agressive or subtle you want the maximising to be.
Mastering tracks, making your tracks louder dynamically would give perception that its better plus I think many buyers would want something already well done.
Before you go, have a look at this picture, Green_Eyes:
CLASSIC!!It’s so true Green Eyes. Without promoting, two sales. When I get finished producing the EP I am working on, I will actually have time to work on promos and a better looking profile. Don’t give up so easy.
damn.. What a good pic! Yeah man, don’t give up so easily.
How about sharing some film scoring chord progressions and techniques that you guys use? Would help a lot.
