Re: Ardour-$foobar

I am kind of bummed out that any development time at all was spent on MIDI. We might have a legit Protools alternative by now if all that labor wasn't wasted. I've never understood why keyboard players couldn't just play their parts and record the audio like everybody else, but that's another story...

Re: Your Thoughts on EQs

Unfortunately, if you are used to Mixbus having a mixer without the built in EQ, compression and high pass is quite jarring. didn't understand this part When you get used to having a mixer with the essential mix tools to hand, using another DAWs mixer, reaching for them and finding they are not the...

Re: Your Thoughts on EQs

I would have to put 'non of the above'. These days; I do all my mixing on Harrison Mixbus which has EQ on the tracks, the mixbusses and the master bus and I use the XT EQs if I feel the need to reach for anything else. I love Mixbus's simplism aprouch, but the track EQs are not enough for cirurgica...

Re: How do you write/sequence drums?

I put down a basic drum track then record more of the song before I introduce more complexity. I used to use hydrogen but now I do it directly in Mixbus / Ardour using midi. I have started a series on youtube that will go through the process. Part two expected when I get some work obligations out th...

Re: Tutorial Vid: Writing A Simple Drum Part in Mixbus / Ardour

Thank you for all the kind and encouraging words. There has been enough interest so I will do the sequels, just need to get a Church project out of the way first so there will be a small delay.

Tutorial Vid: Writing A Simple Drum Part in Mixbus / Ardour

Hi Hope this is the right place. I've tried my hand at creating a tutorial video about writing a simple drum part in Mixbus / Ardour (It is timeline based so they pretty much function the same). Up untill a while ago I found midi composition in Mixbus/ Ardour really hard and used Hydrogen, but now i...

Re: Rated Blue "JOY" Album Released!

Well done, not only because your work is good; most people here will recognise what a lot of hard work this represents.

A friend of mine once described using Linux as building your own aircraft to go on a trip. Congratulations on not only building your own aircraft but having a successful flight.

What's better about the midi workflow? From what I can see on the videos and screenshots it looks pretty similar to v5: http://www.harrisonconsoles.com/mixbus/ ... topic/midi
For me I was getting some problems and glitches in 5 that are completely missing in 6.

Re: Mixbus 6 is out

I love this new version, and quite surprisingly, the track I've been working on with Mixbus 5 for the last couple of months sounds way better with Mixbus 6! The sound is fuller and brings the lower-end forward without losing that touch of "air saturation" I love. I even had to lower that 120Hz bump...
