As you post item requests in here and end up finding what you need, please let me know so I can lock the thread. That way this section can stay current. Thanks all!
My words…. this section of the forum is useless if people post over and over to threads which are 1 year old
Good thread, and some realy good and useful tip’s on hard- and software. One thing you should consider, is the room itself. You can buy the best speakers, soundcards etc., but if the room sounds “wrong”, all this would be useless.
There are hundreds of good tips in the web, how you could set up a homerecording studio ( cheap to expensive ). Some of them are phylosopic ones, that migth sound like NASA science ficition .
Just play one of your favourite tracks, which you have heard on dozens of different soundsystems, and walk around in your room / studio. Then sit back to your workplace and compare. If it sounds more or less “neutral” there, you’ll be fine.
Another good trick : ask one of your friends to go along the walls/ floor / ceiling in your studio with a mirror while you sit on your workplace. Wherever you see yourself in the mirror, is a place where high and midfrequencies reflections could mash up your sound. Avoid this by using some pieces of carpet/ foam etc. .
When it comes to the bass, it will be a bit more complicated, but a generall “no go” is to place full range monitor speakers directly in front of a wall. Even whorst, in a corner. Leave a good amount of space beetween the speakers back, and the wall behind it. If you are not able to move your workplace, think about a monitoring system which uses a subbass and sattelite mid- and high frequency speakers only for the desk. By this, you’ll have the chance to place them onto your desk while hiding/ moving the subbass to a “sweet spot”.
I work at home with these http://www.bose.ch/CH/de/home-entertainment/digital-music-solutions/computer-speakers/index.jsp, and in the studio with different fullrange monitor systems.
I hope my english is good enough to explain the accoutsic voodoo
You should maybe list if :
1. You use a Soundcard on your PC. 2. If yes, which one 3. If no, what kind of plugs do you have on your PC to connect a microphone.
Fantastic work !!
As all my sites are Flash, i would vote +1 for a swf version
I’m an absolute Dubstep fan and have also some finished tracks in that genre. Not sure if AJ is the right place to upload it to, but whenever you guys do, please let me know, im happy to hear your work !!
trying to type my point of view on my iphone while sitting on the beach during honeymoon.
First, one should realy ask what he expects from a stock site for audio. For me, it was in the begining when i signed on AJ the attempt to make “Big Money” like some of the Activeden authors did. After a while i realized, that also AJ suffers from the whole situation that the musicbusiness is into. Sure its impossible to make a living out of a stock site if you have a proffessional studio which costs about 40’000 dollars. Even if you “just” own a fast CPU , paid for audiosoftware and a nice set of speakers it could take a few years to get your investement back.
So, since everyone can get a PC and some software for a few squid, everyone can be a producer, quality or not is another issue. If you need to make a living out of your musical productions, you’d better team up with an investor and make plans for a chartbreaker project
It’s a free world, it’s all up to you !

It would be nice if people who are posting a item request also post if they found what they need. So we dont have 4 month old threads flying around in the forum.
It would also be “gentleman like” if the thread starter checks the thread from time to time and post some comments about the offered musical pieces.
