comment When composing for oboe, how useful is it to think about recorder fingerings?
Tenor recorder is a transposing instrument? Not in my book. That's why I singled it out. At any rate, transposition of the sheet music is trivial by software; what I'm interested in is how various sounding pitches lie on each instrument. It seems oboe is somewhat similar to tenor here – but I'm not really sure; that's why I asked the question, and specifically about fingerings. Naturally, sound- etc. characteristics of different instruments are important too as you say, but IMO the fingering is absolutely crucial for writing lines that are really natural (at least on string instruments).

comment How do other magnets affect pickups?
It is hard to move around a handheld magnet fast enough to be audible. But if you just hold it close to the pickup and tap slightly on it, you will hear a thud, similar to when you hit the strings with your flat hand.

comment Audio Interface and Guitar
Really, no proper monitoring control? That badly sucks. This feature might still be built in, but only accessible through some obscure OS device settings. Possibly it's not controllable under Windows at all... have you tried it in Linux? That generally works better for devices which don't have proper ASIO drivers.

comment Which notes are bass line, versus melody line, in a rock song?
Also, in rock (especially harder subgenres) you'll quite often find bass and guitars playing the same riff, uni sono.

comment How to remove reverb from a recording of a voice?
Actually this trick is equivalent to a downwards expander. Can be quite useful, but really there's only so much this can do to remove reverb without completely severing the signal.
