Lately I’ve been working on fixing an old Powerbook. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it, but I’m thinking that it might be cool to build it into a dedicated live rig. I remember when I got it and installed Logic for the first time. I was super excited to try out my new production rig.
Have you ever seen the send fader (usually it’s a rotary pot) and wondered what it was for? Why send the signal somewhere else for effects? After all, in DAWs, you can insert an effect directly on the channel strip without having to send the signal elsewhere.
Here’s a question that I don’t know if it was covered indirectly, but I’m still curious about: When mixing for live performance or theatre, are there any methods to figuring out or at least hypothesizing about how sounds will manifest in systems that you can’t actually test on?!
If you’ve been on the internet for any amount of time (which I assume you have been since you’re reading this), you’ll no doubt be familiar with the phenomenon of rickrolling.
If you’ve ever cut apart a song for samples, and then tried to a create a song in a different tempo with the pieces, you’ll know the frustration of samples that end too early.
