Hello! How do I get sound quality at home, using a camera which we used as
a microphone??

What a weird comments here, like he never breaths? Gdmnit… I’m glad it’s
not another tutorials with ERRHHH ERRRR ERRHMMM all the time from the
But I agree on not showing where to find where we can exactly monitor those
-3/-6 levels?

Thank you for this tutorial, but the song you recorded made me quit music.?

Spill the wine and take that girl. It all sounds very good and as explained

Very good video! I am a music producer. After a lot of research I found
what seems to be the most advanced program for music creation ever created.
please visit my channel and find the link I have posted for this program?

Hey, guys. I just got Cubase Elements 7, and recorded a song, but when I
try export it, it does not show the full exporting screen and doesn’t show
the option to export. Is this a bug or does anyone have suggestions??

7:07 “you still love me so much thursday with vacuum” (automatically
detected english subtitles)?

I never used these programs, but not sure I understand how the vocal track
could have “spilled” over to the guitar track. Is that because the guitar
was recorded via mic and not plugged in (like an ovation or what not)? I
would more often than not prefer to multi track record but that shouldn’t
disallow me to later edit individual tracks. If that is the case then these
software programs are much further behind than I thought, and I’ll be
happier sticking with my much older hardware sequencers.?

Get the performer to play at the volume level they will be at when
recording, and adjust the gain knob on your interface / preamp until the
loudest peaks hit -6. In reality, even this is a bit too loud. Cheaper
preamps / converters work better when the average level is around -18dB,
not -3. At -18, you’re guaranteed not to get clipping if something
unexpectedly loud happens. It’s better to record quiet and turn up than
record loud and turn down.

These videos are supposed to teach you Cubase, not show off fancy tracks.

I don’t blame you, the day i heard this song was the single most horrific
day in my life. Sometimes I can’t sleep at night

Not sure how clearing the throat is called a “cough” but I’ll assume it’s
some kind of studio industry term. šŸ™‚

Sorry if this question means that I suck horribly, but how do I make my
waveforms look like these? Mine look very binary, and I would love to see
that sort of spectral ghostliness behind my waves. Thanks, if anybody knows
what the hell I’m talking about.
