Are the Jerks doing a podcast for ST16?
We talked about it for round 1, but the timing didn't work out with Ryan's travel schedule. We'll consider it again for round 2.

Re: Loudness management

I use Audacity to this day to for just that plugin 'Apply' feature. This essentially lets you run a plugin against an entire audio file in one shot, as fast as it can go, without having to bounce it out to disk. I find this especially helpful when my audio file is a stereo WAV of a 2+ hour podcast. ...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

If any judge were like "Great song, but, this other one that I liked just as much had mp3 art and yours didn't, so, I ranked you lower" they should be immediately fired, imho. :P Heh, stranger things have happened. It's a pretty well established notion that things that are louder sound better. That...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

If we want to talk collaborating on code in general, which would be helpful for progress, I think most of the interested parties have discussed it before and turned up their noses at the programming language/priorities/etc. :) I had envisioned a system where you upload your mp3 to to whatever music...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

Honestly, if the goal is to have somewhat understandable Nur Ein rankings, the easiest thing to do is ban mastering and normalize all of the tracks before handing them to the judges. I think "easiest" may not be the right word here. You might want to consider tackling low hanging fruit like id3 tag...

Re: What would you ask a songwriter about a song?

How did you compose the vocal melody? Did you just sing it, or did you use an instrument? Do you think of lyrical meter in terms of strong and weak stresses?

Re: Deals On Gear and Software

So there is a upgrade/crossgrade sale for NI Kontakt/Komplete that is happening now. There is a clever way that you can bootstrap the upgrade process to get both Kontakt 6 ($124.50 instead of $399.00) and then crossgrade Kontakt 6 to Komplete 12 ($199.50 instead of $599.00) at reasonable prices.
