Look for the re-emergence of Trapt this fall, as the band has announced the release details of their new album, ‘Reborn,’ and booked a string of dates to support the effort.
‘Reborn’ is due Nov. 20 from Epochal Artist Records in association with EMI, and the disc will be available in both standard and deluxe edition packages. The deluxe edition will come bolstered with five acoustic recordings of songs from the new album, plus the never-before-released fan favorite, ‘Avelyn.’
Singer Chris Taylor Brown, who co-produced the disc with Matt Thorne, states, “This record is really...
I am not going to take credit for this one, because I read it in an interview with Tchad Blake.
In Pro Tools duplicate your kick drum track, insert the San Amp plug-in and adjust until you get a thick round low end with some distortion. Now include your clean source track and REVERSE THE PHASE on your Sans Amp track. Continue adjusting Sans Amp Plug-in (especially buzz and low knobs and take down highs) until you hear it sound like it is an octave below. I was skeptical, but works great for a thick kick.
This is a problem solver when gating snares. Typically snare gets clipped at its front when gating, so here is the trick. Put a gate on your snare track and enable the sidechain. Duplicate your snare track to a new audio track, pull down volume all the way and move it slightly earlier with a pre send sent to sidechain on original snare track. Gate will now be triggered ahead which will rectify clipping problem.
When tracking drums I always have trouble with hearing drummer talk, so I set up a talk back mic for him to communicate to me from drum room to control room. The problem exists when I start tracking the song, the talk back mic is also picking up the drums. Yuck, annoying! What to do? Here is the trick; I put a 1k tone on an Audio Track and create an Aux Track with the input of talk back mic. I insert a compressor on Aux track and set it hard. I then side chain that 1k tone into the compressor. Voila! When I initiate play on DAW talk back mic cuts.
What a great buy this console is. Great support and sounds absolutely wonderful and pure. I like a little character, so I combine the Audient with some Neve and API mic pre's with some of my fav compressors, like a Urei 1176LN or SSL FX 384. That's just enough salt & pepper to make my kind of record.
For 5.1 Surround Sound I use the Audient ASP510 controller
