You can easily change the key of a song by transposing it. Going from major to minor is a bit more difficult, although there are pieces of software that can do it. You would need to flat every instance of the 3rd Scale degree, to turn it into a minor 3rd. To get the full transformation, you would need to flat every 6th and 7th scale degree too, if you are ...

It was recorded too loud and is clipping heavily. The top's been chopped off the waveform (see picture). The information above that 'brick wall' is lost. If there's just an occasional clipped peak, restoration software can sometimes make an intelligent guess at the lost information. But there isn't really a fix for this degree of distortion, particularly ...

Some songs lend themselves easily to this. 'Silent Night' is an example (little late, but hey ho). Those three main chords -I IV and V are simple to move onto i iv and the choice then between v or V - the latter sounding more convincing. With, obviously, any m3 notes sung as M3, etc. Changing songs that use, in the major, ii, iii and vi (I'm omitting vio) ...

The most important thing is to start producing if you aren't already. I'm guessing you are. But if you aren't or you are getting hung up on things that you don't know instead of finishing something, just finish it. Do the best you can on what you're working on now and then ask "how could this be better" and use that as a guide for what to learn ...

If you recorded it as audio rather than Midi, then the only tool I'm aware of that can change the pitch of any single note is Melodyne (& editing one note in a chord is only possible in the highest editions*, the basic can't do that) so you're looking at minimum €399 for that functionality. Alternatively, play the incorrect part again & edit it into ...

Yes editing takes in some manner has been and still is big part of the production of record music in nearly all musically genres. In the liner notes J.S. Bach Two- And Three- Part Inventions, It is written that Glen Gould confessed to the Columbia manager Ronald Wilford in 1973 "A good session will consist of 2.5 to 3 minutes of music per recording hour ..."....

I am afraid I don't have reliable sources discussing modern professionals' editing practices. I can only share what I know from interacting with 2-3 professional pianists who have recorded a number of CDs. From what I gathered, yes, each track is typically the result of mixing a number of takes. Some musicians go to an extreme in literally splicing every ...

TL;DR: sends are treated in parallel, so there is no concept of order as opposed to FX chains (inserts) which treat the audio signal in series. Unfortunately I don't have a schema ready to show you, but I'll explain with words as best as possible, hoping I understood your question properly. I could describe a very generic model of audio processing, made of ...

There's a versatile plugin called Scaler from Plugin Boutigue. It's available as an AU. Also there is InstaScale by WA Production. This is more a scale learning and composition support plugin, available as AU as well. Another composition support plugin helping with scales is MelodicFlow by feelyoursound. This is available as VST only.

While a piece of music in a major key can be changed to a minor key merely by lowering the third, sixth, and sometimes seventh scale degrees, there will often be places in the melody where this doesn't have the desired effect. For example, if a piece is in C major and part of the melody only uses C, D, F, and G, that part of the melody will be completely ...

If you are going to be a sound engineer then MAYBE, harmony and arrangement skills are not necessary, but that is a big IF. If you want to produce actual music with a holistic approach then you need all of it. You don't need to be a savant in an instrument, but decent piano and guitar chops are very useful. If you can get your head around basic vocal ...

A contemporary music school or conservatory offers courses in music and computer. If this doesn’t exist it might be up to the students to ask for workshops or organize them. What we did as teachers: we organized courses together with music centers, producers like steinberg, klemm and others, regional and national workshops. But this was 30 years ago before ...

Even though both the audios have different relative starting points both are in sync (OP's comment) hence the tempo will also be same for both so finding the tempo of the audio with guitars, drums will do the trick. This can be done in Logic Pro X using the BPM Counter plugin on the track with drums. A few things to keep in mind - LPX's BPM Counter ...

Just play back the song by adiocity applying this effect record the song with audiocity export it as mp3 or wave file? That's the way I would do it with finale. otherwise This should work by linking with a mini jack plug the audio-out with audio-in and recording with any wave software as audacity.

Sadly no, unless it is only on one track and you can remove it, or if your audio is on one track and system audio is on both left and right (you may be able to invert and cancel out the system audio), or if the system audio is at one frequency that you can EQ out. Basically, once you have recorded audio, it is very difficult or impossible to remove sounds ...

I'm afraid converting your mono signal into stereo format doesn't add any stereo information, it just places everything in the centre of the stereo image. The Sides channel is about stereo position. If everything is centre, Sides information is zero.

You can use volume automation to fade or quick cut the volume of the song so it sinks under your dialog. Right click on your track header and choose Show/Hide Automation from the context menu. Click the resulting dropdown and choose Volume. You will see a colored line thru the track. If you click the line, it creates a small dot. You can drag that dot up ...

You need a camera that can send and sync with SMPTE time-code, and a four track recorder that also has time-code syncing (you may be able to do this in a DAW). The time-code is embedded in the video and all audio tracks, allowing you to have coordinated playback. The tracks will still have to be mixed before publishing. edit: Thinking about it, and as Todd ...

If I purchase an Audio interface(Which i should have done), I feel just the D/A conversion is shifted on to the Audio interface. Remaining all the processing the processor has to do. I also have Logic Pro for which I need proc power. Am i right on this? No - your computer's processor won't do any D/A conversion in either case. This is always going to be ...

Audition doesn't offer this function. However many times this question is bumped, I'm afraid this remains the answer!
