Does anyone know of a freeware band compressor?
Just wondering!! :)
....Only A Fool Eats His Teeth...
I forget where, exactly, but there are PC VST plug-ins on the net for free from about 2 or 3 separate guys. Each one has his own web site and puts out tons of VST plug-ins in huge clumps. So basically, it's hard to know which clump has which plug-in, but you get like 8 or more plug-ins at a time. The plug ins I had for Cubasis were all attained this way, for free. The multiband compression ones I think weren't always named recognizably. Let me see...
MDA = MDA plug-ins... a great package, and probably what you're looking for, but I forget the url!

<A HREF="http://www.dbrown.force9.co.uk">dave's plug-ins (not this, but nice)</A>
<A HREF="http://www.sinusweb.de">freeverb (a really great reverb</A>
This is the link to the "Ultimate MDA site" :-)
Alright -- I can burn normal tracks from CD to CD no problem, but does anyone know how to burn the "negative" time between songs? (Some bands put secret tracks or pre-song bits during this "negative time" that won't burn on my software!)
Also where can I find STreamBox Ripper 9.0007?

Yeah... I'm sure EVERYBODY has 700 dollars to throw away on a program they might use once in a while, and if not, still just for personal use and for fun.
God, what an ass!
A couple of weeks ago, my CPU crashed and I lost connection to Musicmatch. On June 12, 2001, I had purchased hookup for 49.99 and have been paying a $4.95 monthly fee. how do I hookup again without a fee?
I'm having trouble reading and putting stander notation to use on a guitar can anybody help me with this and give me some tips or a web sit too look at to help me. I would be greatful. thanks!!!
... I recommend Tablature. There is tons of tablature on the net at places like OLGA (which is top quality) and once you have the hang of it, 'I think' it's easier to read.
I have 157 mbs of memory. Sometimes when recording the program I use (and there have been many) stops before it's supposed to.
how do I record my voice with a kareoke song that i have downloaded?
I'm nearly too ashamed to post this having goofed up my last enquiry good and proper. Still humility needs practising so here goes:
Frequently, when I download a new bit of audio software or up date an
existing one, the new program has automatically hijacked a variety of
functions that I have set up on my machine making itself the default player
and changing the file associations of hundreds of files that I have
specifically allocated to be opened by a particular program of my choice.
Is there a way to prevent this happening when downloading or updating software ?
I have found Real Audio as one of the worst at this. I must say though, that all the other programs I can think of always asked before changing MY preferences for me.
The one thing that I hate is when the program changes something as cross platform as an MP3 file to something that quite frankly will NOT work with any other Mp3 player. UNACCEPTABLE, I think...
Yeah I've just been "Real Audio"ed again. Ive been "MSmedia player"ed in the past which is worse because at least Real gave decent sound quality whereas Media Player's was naff.
Hi all you lovely musicy people (slurp) and especially Steve if you're around (more slurp). Excuse my current state of mind but I could still do with some ideas :-
I've found about three different sorts of freebie "tuners" (excluding the fishy sort). What I'm after is one that gives me a graduated visual readout of how close I am to a given note when I play into a mike - over or under as the case may be. The nearest I've got is "MiniTuner" Version 1.4 by Laszlo Arvai (http://www.hitsquad.com/smm/programs/MiniTuner/) which is very neat and does this fine but only on guitar string notes.
Any ideas of one that might give me a visual readout over a greater range of notes ?
How ya doing? Haven't seen you around these parts for a bit.
I had a look at the tuner's in the Mac section and found an old (1998) program that claims to be a voice training program. I had a look at the screen shot and it looked like it could pick out the notes that were coming in the computers input, (lets face it, monophonic and slow I suspect).
Glad you found something though. I've included the link as it has the website link for the software house. Can't remember your platform but if it's MS, then they might have a version..
....ooooooh..... hellow Steve ! Good to hear from you again. I'm doing just fine. Howz about yourself ? Don't bother about getting your eyes tested yet ... You havent seen me 'cause I haven't been here to see .... Been getting a bit snowed under both literally and metaphorically. The metaphorical bit's not going to improve for a week or three either. Don't pine too much. It's not that I don't love you.
Been having fun with QuatzAudioMaster. Really impressed a friend with the quality of a first recording I did of him and me.I was most surprised too as I only had a little toy mike that came with a headset from my girl's Petz game and, although the recording/mixing needs polishing, the sound quality is impressive.
Thanks for the software idea . I'll go have a look.
Don't hold your breath.
What a wally. I just found Mini Tuner will do it fine if I set it up right.
Works well . Give it a try if you fancy one.

probabyl an INCREDIBLY simple answer to this oen and im sure that im stupid for asking, but hwo do i get soundforum synth, or any software synth for that matter to work with logic polatinum in windows? ive been usign amcs up to noiw, and that wasa case of sendign midi to IAC bus.
Hubis Loopback Device creates virtual MIDI ports for linking software together - i'm pretty sure it's on this site.

: PLEASE HELP!
yea ur stupid
all I can say is you should be asking such a specific question in the logic message board nodoubt there is one run by logic plc. You are in the WRONG PLACE is how silly u r.
I could use some help in selecting software to use on my G4 PowerBook that will allow me to tie in with my electronic drums. I'm fairly new to MIDI, but would like to take advantage of the computer/software aspect to create additional accompanying percussion rhythms (loops?) and other instrumental loops for use in live performance. (Notation and scanning features would also be helpful.) I have several related questions, but I would appreciate some recommendations as to which software will most cost-effectively allow me to do this.
I have converted some AU files to WAV files that are
not CD quality files therefore they can not be burned
onto a CD. My question is: Is there any way to edit
these mono-wavs as psudo-stero wav that can be burned
to CD (like feeding both channels with the same mono
Thanks for any help.

I am researching to write a report comparing 3 types of music software. Can anyone tell me what they think of "Muse", "Finale 2002" and "Sibelius 2".
Any opinions would be greatly recieved.
Well I don't know anything about the program Muse, but I have some experience with Finale and especially Sibelius.
Both Finale and Sibelius are very good programs. You can make really professional scores with them. After trying both I ended up in choosing Sibelius. For me the most important issue at that time was ease of use.
Sibelius is very clear and I could work with it right away. Finale on the other hand takes much more studying and digging through the manual.
That's also what I hear from a lot of people.
Furthermore what I like about Sibelius is that you can scan and then convert existing (when written very neat, even handwritten!!) scores to Sibelius format. Another thing is that you can publish your Sibelius score on the internet with the Sibelius Scorch plugin. Surfers on the web can listen to the music played with MIDI, they can choose a tempo and they can even transpose!! Very handy when your musicians live at a great distance!! Hahaha!!
So yes, I'm a Sibelius enthusiast!! But you really should try all yourself first.
Good luck with your report!

I found this out from experience from a friend that works for a British government bureau after he sent me an Email (doc from Word) from a PC. I was using a very old version of Word on the Mac at the time and noticed after the text, there was tons of characters that didn't make sense.
After some time, I decided to phone him and quote some of the things he had in his documents folder and items on his disk hiaracy (sp). I am not convinced that the problem has left use but although that quite was four years ago...
MS is typically the place to go if you want to let your personal data lose on the general public. Just take a look at the FBI trying to stop XP thing...
That's a very potent and interesting account, Steve. It is interesting how bad Microsoft can be. People often assume that Microsoft technicians and managers are unaware of these issues, but I am sure that they know and actually willing cause most of their software flaws. They are in the business of making money, not quality software.
I remember when some of the very first Microsoft programs arrived on the Macintosh. I remember MS Word was one. They were the first programs I had ever seen ask for registration and incorporate the supposed registered user info into each program for automatic display every time it ran. It was curiously annoying then. It was only the tip of the iceberg.
I remember the good old days when the internet didn't have cookies. In fact, the first time I ever heard of cookies was in reference to a famous computer virus named cookies. The virus program would constantly annoy infected users by asking them for a cookie more and more often. The user would have to type "cookie" to get the virus to shut up for a while, but the requests would just get increasingly frequent! That was also just the tip of the iceberg.
I am fiercely convinced that the best and least intrusive software is almost always created by independent programmers, often one at a time.
I just downloaded rVST, xVST, and Wave2.0.7 all for the Mac. These are tiny little bugless audio programs that each do one thing right. rVST and xVST are only designed to pump audio through 2 VST plug-ins to a file, but geez, the documentation is artistic and tiny, the programs are artistic and tiny, and they work like a charm. If only the big companies would learn!
Anyhow, in terms of internet security, I have decided that after I finish downloading some more goodies for music making, I'm going to stop using the internet or computers for anything serious. It's just not fair to have so many people constantly trying to get into our systems without our consent.
Computers and internet are worse than TV. At least old fashioned TV just sits there. It doesn't get up and wander around our houses without our permission. (Of course, all man-made transcievers are questionable in this hideous zero-privacy culture).
NEED HEKP COPING KARAOKE CDGS

What do i need to copy cd+g karaoke ?
and how do i do ths ?
Thanks, will try the cute one, sounds like something I could eventually master. Were you ever dumb like me about this stuff, has it taken you long to be able to sprout words that sound technical. I really want to learn and yet the more I read the more brain dead I get. Tks anyway.
You should always get a second opinion. Being online and stuff, I could just be a talking, typing elephant trained on peanuts. But I'm glad if i did help.
hello. i am looking into purchasing ACID PRO software. i am a huge fan of rodney jerkins music, especially more so with his new collab with michaeljackson on "Invincible". i wanted to know, if i could create, from scratch a song such as "you Rock My world" on ACID softawre, without using any portion of the original track; Seeing as the original track is fairly comlex in its implementaion will the sofware be able to faithfully reproduce the instrumental version of the song; If not could can some suggest better software within the price range. MAny Thanks.
your question - with respect fella - shows you don't yet have an understanding of PC music making. The answer firstly is no. Acid as far as I am aware is not ideal or even capable of what you are after - it's primarily a loop utilisation tool so u use pre recorded loops in it.
You need to think about sound sources. You can use midi or audio. Midi sounds will be generated BY YOUR SOUNDCARD - only if it has a built in midi sound set ofcourse which most decent ones do. Audio is the other route an 4 this you can use samples (not long ones or riffs but single hit notes/drum hits.
As re host program you would be best with a midi/audio sequencer like cubasis/cubase/logic/cakewalk/sonar all of which combine midi+audio. You would need a sampler too unless you wanted to record sound from a keyboard you may have?? A program like fruityloops has built in sample channels and would do everything except actually record input ie singing/guitar. You should rerally try losts of demos and see what things are capable of it's the only way.
Thanks 4 all advice;
I am just starting to attempt to copy my old cassettes to my hard drive, edit them and burn to cd. I am trying to learn/use DC ART v 4.0 But I wish I could get a book that just covered the basics in audio editing - like terminology, concepts, etc. so that all the info and features available with my software would make more sense. I am just in over my head and when I read the manual it just gets me more confused. Even an online course would help. Any advice for a novice such as myself?
I think reading up on editing is a far idea although I have always found that people with a decent grasp of their 'cut and paste' shortcuts will found the whole experience quite natural.
I know there is a lot to learn but most people I know have learnt just by clicking and deleting (etc) with an unimportant audio document.
Think Zoom, Cut and Paste.
Check out Amazon for audio engineer and editing books.
Alternatively, just pop back here when you can and ask a few editing questions. There are a few regulars here that know their stuff..!
