    The light sabre sound is a mic with a broken (exposed wires?) cord. When he walked past the TV it made a huge energy noise and noticed when he moved it around by the tv the sound was similar to what he thought an energy sword wound like.

    Hi Everybody!

    I'm looking for a short tune that signifies a wrong answer, like when your answer is correct there is a cheerful sound like :"TADA!" and when it's wrong there is a mocking trumpeti sound like: "Wha Wha Wha Wha..."(going down scale), does anyone know what I'm talking about or how can I find such a sound?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi Jobro,

    I use virtualdj, you can load any sample into it and map it to your virtual vinyl, great fun for experimenting with stuff!

    Depends what sound you are going for.

    If you want an authentic classical guitar sound then you will not get it with the pick-ups unless you pay alot for it.

    If you were playing something like Massive Attacks 'TearDrop' like Jose Gonzalez however the buzz and the closeness of the sound could work - especially with effects like delay and light distortion. If you ran it through a tube pre it'd be nice too.

    The best idea like someone mentioned before would be to use both mic and direct in. Use the mic - a good condensor for the realism and the direct in as the presence and clarity.

    If your only option is to use ur pick-ups... then try reducing the highs on the built in EQ. Try running it through a good room reverb and try either a quick compressor to contain the attack or a transient shaper. There is a free transient shaper called flux which you can get from www.kvraudio.com .
    You could try tube emulation as well.

    When creating music/audio - anything in a program say for example FL Studio (Better to get the sound right at the roots hey rather than heavy editing later) - What is the best way to avoid overlapping of sounds for a clean mix. I tend to produce techno -

    Perhaps people can post different methods.

    I find that in quite a few of my tracks I find it hard sometimes to mix the drums/beat and the synths. Even cutting some basslines off using a para EQ.

    I'd like to hear diff opinions and methods. I've been doing this for a while just getting used to FL stud.

    I have achieved more than decent results recording direct with my Takamine.

    When in the studio, I use relatively short-length cables to cut back on noise. I run a gold-plated Mogami cable from my Takamine's out into an ART tube pre-amp. I keep the gain on the preamp relatively low and run another gold-plated cable from the preamp into my Focusrite Saffire firewire interface. Using the Saffire's onboard DSP effects I can get a very warm natural tone. Definitely a mixture of the tube warmth and the mild from the DSP.

    I currently use Cubase at the front of my DAW, and run to Reason from there for MIDI editing and final mixdown.

    I'm sure it doesn't compare to simply recording with a quality mic in a quality room but for me it works excellent and allows me to sing simultaneously and keep the tracks very independent.

    Good luck.

    I can try and do it with a deep Barry White type voice. Plus I don't want money. Sounds good, huh?

    You can do Barry White voice? Any chance we can borrow a couple of vocal licks from you guy? sad

    I have the phrase "Is anybody there ?" as a ring sound on my mobile phone but I have no idea whether it has anything to do with "Back to the Future".

    Okay, I'm not mad (sort of) but:

    I'm recording a hiphop spoof about a guy who looks like a MOLE,

    Anyone feel like recording this sentince: "STOP PULLING THAT MOLE FACE!!!" ?
    Any funy, serious sexy style of voice would do, as I intend to scratch the sample on virtual vinyl

    Thanks in advance!

    Nice tunes, I agree with ERH, longer tracks would be great!
    I'm proud you used my drumsamples there that way, thanks man !

    Any way to download your tracks NOT using "download helper" (firefox plugin) ?

    Good luck

    Watch this video clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crfrKqFp0Zg Anyone who can locate / record similar samples, and prefered with not much reverb around.
