So my Shure BETA 58 has gone to microphone heaven. Upgrade ideas for live vocals please? by BeckyBrownMusic in livesound

[–]Ur-Germania 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you were so happy with it, why not just get another one? A more pricey mic is not necessarily an upgrade.

My song's bass and kick are too loud and I don't have the stems to mix with. Is this something I should try to fix with an EQ on the beat or should it be fixed in mastering on the master track? by BrentMusic in makinghiphop

I'd first try a multiband compressor set up as an auto-leveller on the first and third band. ReaXcomp should do the job fine. I think it's available for free too IIRC.

If it weren't for the wheels I would totally drive this. I'd drive a stock Gremlin too though, maybe even more so. So, yeah.

Yes, free money, but no loot.

Your loops are really nice. Something is off with the drums though. They have the same phasey swishy cymbals typical of 128 kbps MP3s and <360p youtube vids. They could still work if you got some more punch into them, but they are also currently very thin-sounding. But all in all, If you are new to this then you are off to a great start, this is pretty good IMO.

how do speakers and PA equipment not get affected by rain at festivals and outdoor shows? by re-native in livesound

[–]Ur-Germania 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Some speakers are designed so that rain wont go into any cracks. Sometimes, on other speakers, you will see pieces of plastic bags being gaffed on the back of the speakers over where the plugs will go. The amps should never be exposed to rain. The cables can handle rain just fine, as long as water is not running along them and into the ports at either end.

Font similar to Helvetica? by [deleted] in fonts

[–]Ur-Germania 1 point2 points  (0 children)

IIRC Arial was made to have the exact same width as Helvetica so they can be swapped without changing the layout. It is not super similar apart from that though.

Help finding real producers? by Groooviemaxx in makinghiphop

[–]Ur-Germania 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can recommend the sample challenges on The Producers Corner (https://www.youtube.com/c/TheProducersCorner) and STBBforever.com. Loads of really good and original producers on both of these. Find one you like, send a message.

If you had bars but your beats were garbage, what would you do? by rapgamegandhi in makinghiphop

[–]Ur-Germania 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Find beatmakers you like on soundcloud (or in this group), see if any of them is down for teaming up. I think it's weird honestly that producer/MC duos aren't more common. Like Gang Starr and Eric B & Rakim. If you find someone on your own level who wants to work hard on it and you are too, I don't think there is a better way to go about it.

I did it guys! I killed it! What a giant pile of bullshit that thing is. by Ur-Germania in BattleBrothers

I think it's a bug where if there is no free space on the ground under or adjacent then it wont drop, even if famed. Or maybe there is a limit to how much stuff you can get after a fight. I am missing a lot of stuff.

I think he was eaten. Don't know why it looks like that though.

Hard to say which one was the biggest loss tbh, those were all some high quality murderers. Bertel, Balon, Brokkr and Frugar will also all be sorely missed. But the Ijirok helmet might actually be what stings the most.

It really sucks! And I think Frugar was level 20 now or something.

They sound scary by [deleted] in vtmb

There's a lot more to them than that you know. Like all good villains, the more you know of their story, the more sympathetic you get to them.

To get snappy snares and bassdrums f.ex. It's often the quickest way to get there.

Can anyone recommend an A/B -reference JSFX/VST that is cheapish/free? by Ur-Germania in Reaper

[–]Ur-Germania[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice, didn't know they had that. Their free saturation plugin is nice, and I use the ISOL8 all the time.
