Re: Happy Tones



I don't use the setup you're using, but in my experience, a good arrangement is so much easier to mix - de-murk - than a more chaotic one.
Again, I'm just talking about my own experience with my music and the music of others I've worked with.

And... does it sound more clear if you don't use the FX send?  Might be worth an experiment.

Okay, so I'm going out here to confess that I need help.  I'm playing a Godin guitar synth into a VG8 into a Behringer mixer where I use the FX send to process the signal through a Boss VF 1 and a M9.  This goes into Live on a MacBook Pro through a Presonus FireWire input.  I'm also running bass directly into the Presonus as well as an iPad which all get looped in möbius.  I have to use headphones with this rig as a joy of apartment living.

What I need to know is if anyone has any tips on how to optimize the sounds of the instruments as they go into the soup of live.  Individually everything sound acceptable but as soon as I begin playing it devolves to a thick murky soup of a sound way to quickly.  I'm sort of at a loss as I've already EQd all the tracks to try to carve space out for each and it sounds better but still goes to soup.

I'm not expecting pristine audio but I would like to hear the individual inputs with at least a little definition.

Does anyone have any tips on how to arrange a multi input software looping set up so each input is distinct and sounding decent at least (without buying new gear if possible).

Thanks as always for being such a splendid group of people,

Kevin
