Re: STEREO and MONO Recordings

MARGARETD has posted a song called There's A Bridle Hanging On The Wall in the March Challenge. The Box LINK below is to her recording of this in stereo . The main instruments are coming from 'centre', but she also has some incidental voices (eg. Choir) that are panned to the right. Also, notice th...

Re: Panned Voices and Styles

I have another example of 'panning' a single instrument .. from Eileen. And this is on a saxophone! You wouldn't normally expect notes from a saxophone to come from left/right as the sound of a saxophone all comes from one place! But Eileen says: I used Auto Pan 1 DSP effect on the first voice just ...

Re: Panned Voices and Styles

Now then .. . I have had one or two Members contact me to say they can't hear that stereo separation with the vibraphone. To me, it was the higher notes that were more pronounced as coming from the right. The first note played was the lowest, and to me that came from the left (but only just!). The ...

Re: Panned Voices and Styles

Panned Voices Now, here is an even more sophisticated use of pan, this time on a single instrument where sound comes from more than one place. When you are sitting at a real Piano or a Vibraphone and playing it, the sound comes from between one side of the instrument and the other, depending on whe...

Panned Voices and Styles

Panning and Styles 'Panning' between left and right channels creates 'space' in our music. This gives a 'three dimensional' perception on what we are listening to. Any STYLE that you choose will already have had the PARTS 'panned' by 'default' .. but you can change the 'defaults' if you so wish. Re...

Grieg's Piano Concerto

As a youngster, Grieg's Piano Concerto was one of the first pieces of Classical Music I instantly fell in love with and just had to go out and purchase a recording of it (no YouTube in those days!). The vinyl record I bought was in mono, and it was the expression, the intonations and pauses in the r...

Re: Seven style sets for 80s songs

Hi Roger,

Thanks for posting those. Which Technics keyboards will these Styles work/not work with? I have a friend who has the Technics KN5000 and another who has the Technics KN7000.

STEREO and MONO Recordings

Remember the days when everything was recorded in MONO? As a youngster I remember having a 'battery operated' record player and playing 45rpm records on it. Thought it was great! I was able to take it with us on family picnics and provide the music. This device, or course, just had one speaker, and ...

Re: Musicmakers club 4/3/2019

John,

Nothing like LATIN to have a really good evening. There are so many rhythms and styles to choose from.

The KN7000 is a great keyboard, so that should be a great evening too.

Hi Roy, I am so glad you have come up with that explanation. I was at my wits end trying to fathom out why you didn't have a stereo recording. I know Brian had said it's not important, just carry on as you are. But it was more than just having your recording coming out as 'two track mono'. The point...

Re: Recording from the Yamaha PSR 970 keyboard

Back to the PSR 970. I'm sure there is no need for Roy to use Audacity to make his MP3 recordings, as I reckon the PSR 970 would record Audio directly to a Memory Stick inserted into the USB port of the PSR 970. Can anybody who has a PSR 970 explain to us how to do this? I'm sure Roy would like to k...
