100$ is a bit low, but look for a used Zoom H2? (H2N currently goes at about 150€ now so might be possible. H2 is just as good and I've seen them on ebay for about 70$US.) Otherwise, smartphones make pretty decent portable recorders now. I use an app called Voice Recorder which is free for general stuff. It's quite OK. In this scenario once you have a ...

Traditionally, the producer is the artist who makes the beat (the instrumental) of a song. The MC is the person who raps over that beat. Wikipedia has it written as: "Hip hop as a general rule consists of two elements: an instrumental track (the "beat") and a vocal track (the "rap"). The artist who crafts the beat is the producer (or beatmaker), and the ...

If you're looking for price as a major factor, I would suggest the audio interface all the way; mixers get far more pricey than audio interfaces as you go up in quality and an interface will give you all you need for home recording as long as you have software on your computer to mix with. Mixers tend to be more practical live though, as the speed with ...

Here's some ipython notebooks that stream an audio waveform from a soundcard into matplotlib for a real-time viz. It uses PyAudio and struct (to uncompress the byte stream into waveform integers) https://github.com/markjay4k/Audio-Spectrum-Analyzer-in-Python sound.stackexchange.com sounds more appropriate for me going forward, thanks for the rec!

A normal balanced TRS output is automatically “degraded” to an unbalanced one simply by connecting a TS jack. The way this works is, it forces the ring to ground level, then the tip voltage is Utip = Uring + Usignal = 0 + Usignal = Usignal i.e. the same as with an unbalanced output (which simply sets Utip = Usignal right away). So to connect this mixer to ...

You can do this with almost any recording software. Instructions for doing this with Audacity via Pulseaudio can be found at the Audacity web site. Here's a summary: Installe PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol) Ensure that PulseAudio is running. In Audacity's Device Toolbar, set the Host to ALSA and the recording device to pulse. Ensure that "Software ...

If you work with music software on Linux, I suggest you look into Jack. It is a virtual patch panel that can route midi signals and audio from one music application to another. So you could patch the audio output of ZynAddSubFX into a DAW like Ardour or Qtractor. Many Linux music programs support Jack. QjackCtl is a graphical user interface to Jack that ...

slighly distorted, yet very clean and fat tone Sounds like a general Blues tone. On any amp or FX circuit, look for a "gain" or "overdrive" knob/function. If you have a circuit with "pre" and "post" gain options, you can turn the "pre" down and crank the "post" to overdrive the tubes naturally. On a Fender Blues Junior tube combo these are called "master" (...

Source separation is impossible in the general case but can be approximated for some limited sets of instruments. If you're interested in the computing methods and currently achieved results, you can check : https://sisec18.unmix.app/ This website aims to introduce state-of-the-art algorithms in audio source separation. Here we present the Music (MUS) ...

You are asking how it might be done so the following narrative is somewhat speculative but sound. You don't need the original tapes but the process would be quite involved. We have (or can make) frequency-time domain profiles of the instruments and use match filters to find them in the mix. Subtract them out and repeat. The model signals could be from a ...

I'm not sure I'm clear on your signal chain, but I'm inferring that your K&K preamp has 2 discrete inputs and 2 discrete outputs. And that the Zoom has 2 discrete inputs. If that's not correct, please provide the model of the preamp and Zoom so we can see what your routing might be. If that is correct, one typical method of simultaneously recording a ...

I'd recommend you sing it 8 times, top to bottom, rather than pull up after every line. The flow will be significantly better. If you use a multitrack-capable DAW, you can then do what's known as 'comping' - you listen to each version then edit together the best of each line, in such a way that you can't tell they were from different takes. The probability ...

This is such an older outdated post.. So I thought I would update it.. You can in fact plug a USB condenser microphone into a mixer or an interface.. You need a standard USB brick charger (like you use for any cell phone or tablet) to power the USB microphone.. Then on the microphones headphone output you use a Mic out jack to Line In jack or Mic in jack on ...

The easiest way to do this is probably to use an audio interface. An audio interface lets you plug in a 1/4" jack and connect the interface to your computer using USB. The interface can convert analog to digital signal, and vice versa. It looks something like this.

You may already have a smartphone, even one without any paid connection to phone or internet (perhaps an old, retired one). Put it on a tripod in front of you, camera aimed at the fretboard, landscape not portrait. Ensure that its screen shows what you want. Then transfer that display to your computer and thus to the classroom's projector. This last step ...

As per the comments: this depends on the make and model of the mixer. If the mixer does not have a digital output, you can always connect an analog (line-level) output of the mixer to an audio interface. Lots of two-channel USB audio interfaces are available, ranging from really cheap ($30) to really expensive. The best setup depends on your goals. If ...
