Hey Everyone
I just had a question & i didn't want to make a new thread. Just wanted some input & want to know what everyone thought about itunes +. What is better sound quality. The way it comes 256kpbs mpeg4 or is it better to just get a wav copy and convert it to 320kpbs mp3 with like switch sound file converter? and is one file converter better than another? or is a 320 a 320?

Thanks

There is one file converter that "people" tend to consider the standard for mp3 compression. It is called the LAME project... and you can read about it here...

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=28124


I would say it is better to encode in mp3 simply because it is a universally accepted codec and hence anyone will be able to play it on whatever player... like ipod or zune or whatever or anything else... there have been a lot of new codecs invented since the invention of mp3 but non have been as widely distributed... acc, ogg vorbis, flac... they all have advantages etc etc but stick to mp3 for widest distribution.

is 320 a 320? for all functional purposes yes... for technical purposes and comparisons no... not all 320s are created equal... depends on the codec...

NIGHTWORK, i like lala pah, that synth sound sounds pretty damn good, the melody is good too... if you can get your mixing issues sorted out, and arrange that bettter that could be a serious tune, good job.

again, you are just using the virtual version of a ms 20 with multiband compression, thats it?? not saturation or distortion

Here's something I've been trying to accomplish for a while but haven't had much luck with-

Could anyone give me advice as to how to create a bass drum that sounds similar to the one used in "Lava lava" by Boys Noize?

I've tried several various EQ settings/manipulations on countless bass drums and still haven't come very close to that precise sound.

There's no real open beat throughout the duration of the song that may be sampled.

I've gone through and taken out several semi-open beats in which it's mainly bass drum but there are other things in the background as well, unfortunately.

Here's a track I made the other day, I'm gonna try to get in a studio and finish it up by adding some stuff and mixing it properly on some monitors this weekend

http://www13.zippyshare.com/v/26545971/file.html

I just got a new job so I haven't had time to sit down and finish it, it needs some work but I think it turned out ok, i'm still learning though so maybe it sounds like shit...

On that note I have two projects that I am starting and I was wondering if anyone is interested.

first, I am trying to find someone to collaborate with as far as producing music so if anyone wants to start collaborating on some projects then hit me up... we could do online collaborations via ichat or have a database where we upload files stuff like that... i live in San Diego so if someone is physically close then that could work too

second, I am beginning to work with a 3D enviroment programmer to develop a visual show for my dj sets (i dj on ableton) we decided to do a cross platform method using Ableton + Max/MSP/Jitter. Mostly it's going to be a way to send midi data to all sorts of video parameters... kinda of a way to be your own light engineer while you DJ without having to focus on either video or music, do both at the same time... we're starting simple but as the project becomes more and more complex we will need help with the coding and the testing and develpment. it should be a really rewarding project we layed down the core of where we want to go with it and the type of visuals we're looking to set up and with some work it should come out pretty pro.

if anyone has experience in jitter and/or visual developement and wants to join this project let me know also...

email me here, or find me on facebook

the original track sounds an awful lot like harvest time by the bloody beetroots. [/quote]


not surprising, i sampled it. im redoing in now without samples and better sound quality now that i know more. that was two years ago before i got good vsts, i just thought i was a good example too emphasize my issue with sound quality. i think the background bass is operator anyways
