If your into music as much as I am, you go crazy when you see an new piece of equipment, all the lights and the buttons attorney things play Christmas walking into a music store just one Christmas present that I would encourage you to check out it’s called the Roland M5000.
There’s no denying since the release of camera-competitive smartphones, Instagram revolutionized the way we take and share pictures. It’s the only app that restricts its main posts in one specific dimension (600×600 pixels) and yet, even with this fact, 95 million photos are posted every day. I’ve wandered off Instagram at some point in my life and switched to other photography platforms like VSCO — which I still love, by the way — but found my way back to the now-Mark Zuckerberg-owned application. Instagram is like that one annoying friend you just can’t get rid of because #1, everybody likes her and #2, apparently, she is all the buzz even with her dull and copycat personality.
As an undiagnosed computer operator, I’ve been a fanatic for media formats for a while, in fact, that my current college education enrollment is an Interactive Media Arts program, aspiring to turn my hobbies into careeries. Here is a blog-lengthed Album Review.
Music Production Suite for Beginners – On a Budget
To be involved in music production is a daunting task, and the choices involved will cost a fortune. The first thing to worry about is the gear you will be picking. So this will determine the budget. For this tutorial we will go over a recording kit for a solo artist. In my home I use the Apex 435B, I think this is perfect for vocal recordings, if you have a filter or a soundproof room it makes it the better. Opting for the USB input mic is not an option if you need high fidelity, so I use the Scarlet i2 interface, it has 2 XLR Inputs. It can cost between $149-240. If you have interest in doing MIDI work, I would recommend the Akai mini pad controller for only the reason that it is great for beginners and it’s portable. It is $129. Read More

When working on a project, one of the most important parts of your production is making sure that all of the pieces that you are using work together properly. This will usually require you to sacrifice some element of your project, whether it be in the visual, audio, or presentation sections. One such method of making your elements fit together just right is the remix tool in Audition.
The remix tool is used to alter audio, usually a song, so that the length is longer or shorter than the original composition. In order to start this process, you need to put the audio into Audition. Once there, you can do the general cleanup (noise reduction, plosives, breaths) directly onto the waveform. However, you will need to put the piece of audio into a multi-track mixdown in order to remix the track.
Once the music track that you want is in the mixdown, you can then go ahead and remix by simply going to the remix tab to the left and pressing “enable remix”. Once said track is analyzed, you will be free to extend or shorten to your heart’s content.
However, there’s one last thing that you should remember about remixes: they will not be the exact length that you specify. Due to how the remixing works, chunks of the song are mixed into and taken out through the song, and since the remix cannot cut into these chunks, the song cannot be the exact time that you want.
While this might not be a problem for most projects, if the remix is paired with a visual portion as well, you may need to either cut down or expand the video in order to better fit the music. Most of the time you’ll be able to cut down parts of shots in order to fit the time, so it won’t be a major issue.
