Lynda.com Live Sound Engineering Techniques On Tour with Rush TUTORiAL
Follow along with Brent Carpenter on tour with Rush, as he demonstrates what it is like to be a live sound engineer for a major rock show. We shadow Brent and the Rush sound crew as they prepare for the Denver, Colorado, show on their Clockwork Angels tour, where the band is set to perform for 12,000 fans. After the gear is loaded into the venue, Brent explains how he and the crew set up the rigging, amp racks, and fly the speaker arrays to make sure well-balanced stereo sound reaches every seat in the arena. He also shows how he sets up his console to mix the onstage sound for Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart and configures the in-ear monitor system and balance of audience mics for each member of the band. Then we get to sit backstage with Brent and watch what he does during line check, sound check, and the actual show. After the fans file out, see how all the equipment comes back down and is packed away so the cycle can start all over in the next city.

Topics include:
Choosing the PA for the venue
Setting up points, motors and cables, and trusses
Getting the best use of both analog and digital signal paths
How Rush gets that Geddy, Alex, and Neil live sound
Setting up the digital monitor mix console
Doing the line check and sound check
Using audience microphones to connect the band to their fans

David Moulton's Golden Ears Audio Eartraining TUTORiAL
An audio ear-training course for recording engineers, producers and musicians. Moulton started doing such training as an educational exercise for students back in 1969, and has since used it everywhere. In 1992, KIQ Productions asked Moulton to make it commercially available, and the rest is history.

I'm personally very proud of these drills, and pleasantly surprised and honored by how widely they've been adopted and put into use around the world. Many private individuals, studios, broadcasting organizations, colleges and universities have all adopted Golden Ears. I know of nothing else like them, except for a couple of very specialized and highly developed in-house computer programs for ear-training. Certainly nothing else that is commercially available. If you want to improve your audio hearing acuity and knowledge, these are a great tool!

Vol. 1: Frequencies
Trains you to recognize boosts and cuts in all ten octaves of the frequency spectrum. Progressive drills build from simple boosts in music to more demanding single octave cuts in pink noise.

Vol. 2: Effects & Processing
31 possible signal processing changes, grouped into simple families: amplitude change, gross and subtle distortion, slow and fast release compression, equalization changes, stereophony anomalies and time-delay / reverberation settings.

Vol. 3: Delays and Decays
Delay settings from tenths of a millisecond to whole seconds; panning / slap / spaciousness effects -- in mono and stereo, on sustained and transient sounds. Reverb parameters -- predelays, decay times, etc. Invaluable when creating programs.

Vol. 4: Master frequencies
Advanced EQ. Identify cuts and boosts to within a third of an octave; and two octave bands simultaneously boosted and/or cut.

Crypto Cipher Tabla Tarang KONTAKT
You already heard the "Magical Sound of Tabla” in our previous release which was performed by master tabla artist ” Jagannath Singh”. we have already discussed the effect of black ink spot on tabla which makes this instrument capable of producing one note higher than the main pitched note (Psyco-acoustic issue).

Magical Sound Of 13 unique hand made "Tablas”


There are many Tuned Percussion Instruments available in the market.We can say market is quite saturated but here is the extinct art of India "Tabla Tarang”. Most of the people in India have heard about this instrument but have not seen any performance happening live. Sadly , Authentic playing is no more seen.

Solo Tabla Tarang

"Tarang” means waves. Many hand made tabla drums are tuned separately by hitting hammer on the rim of tabla according to "Raga” and all tabla drums are placed in semicircular positions covering lower bass tabla from left to higher pitched tabla towards right. Each tabla has its own character and the melodies are produced by hitting hands on the centre of tabla. Black Ink spot produce a unique sound and when artist perform any emotional raga using these different-different tabla it sounds exotic.
Its bit sad to say that this art is almost not seen in India nowadays.Pandit Kamalesh Maitra has some of his performances on youtube which can be searched by his name.

Crypto Cipher Solo Tabla Tarang

Recreating this art was adventurous and fun. We teamed up with tabla artist and tabla makers and discussed the plan and finally we have sampled 13 tabla drums not with just the magical black ink spot sound but also the two other tuned sounds "Ta” and "Tin” ,which are produced by hitting at the rim/chanti and middle portion/maidan of tabla drum.
So we have three main tuned sounds "Ta” "Tin” and "Tun” mapped across the keyboard.
Mixing all three sound make the instrument so special as never heard before.
We recreated this instrument for Modern music composers and recorded almost 15,000 samples with three mic types (Ribbon , Dynamic , Condensor). Also with the powerful scripted technology we pushed the capability of the instrument to next level. We have legato and drum articulation section which will help composers to play the instrument in more advance ways.

Tabla Tarang Authentic Playing Technique

We recommend you to see artwork made by Kirti Taneja for "Tabla Tarang” to understand the instrument( Artist sits in the middle and place tabla in semicircular position creating a keyboard layout). All tabla are tuned manually by hitting hammer on tabla according to Raga which artist is going to perform.
Artist can hit maximum two drums at a time producing one stroke from each hand at once (Human capability).Example : Artist cannot play "Ta and Tin” "Tin or Tun” at the same time on same drum but can hit Ta on one drum and Tin on other drum at same time. Same concept for other strokes.

In other words 
Tabla Tarang artist can produce only two notes harmony at max as again he has two hands and one hand produce one stroke at a time.
Its not like piano . (In piano you can hit 5 notes at a time with one hand and 5 other from other hand maximum).
So, most of the time the arrangement of these tablas are used as solo melodic tuned instrument.
Its not necessary to play Tabla Tarang in authentic way , you can play the instrument in other ways you want .

Applications – Ideas

You can do sound design stuff with these variety of samples and create texture you never created before . This instrument can be layered with other sounds. It can be a part of your main background theme of movie as its character is so unique.
You can try soft samples of tun articulation to create very emotional and heart touching melodies and on the other side you can have aggressive punchiness of "Ta” and "Tin” Sounds.
You can use this instrument into your drum track to create fillers etc. There are many applications just play the instrument and see what inspires you.

Right Drum when tuned down sounds like "Pakhawaj” (Indian Traditional Percussion Instrument), we have also included pakhawaj style midi loops just to show the capability of instrument.
Bonus Midi loops includes – Basic Indian traditional style of rhythms in 4/4 and various complex patterns in 15/4 , 11/4 , 7/4 , 10/4 etc. It also includes various Complex kaidas in 4/4 and Lagi -Laddi Patterns used in "Keharwa Rhythm Patterns”. User can improvise midi patterns and change sound via mic positions/tunings /panning and velocities to get amazing sound.
Library also includes special effect controls like mute,doubler,heat and wide – along with basic effects and 7 impulse response reverb made specially for this library.
Bonus Patches also come with "Solo Tabla” which are performances based in various creative style.
"Solo Tabla” and "Tabla Loops” Library are recorded in same room with "Royer Ribbon Microphone” and other microphones.

UPDATE Notes

Remapping Feature

You can now remap the tabla bols ( Strokes ) from the main UI - Remapping will intelligently shift the name of the sound displayed in parameter display/Colour and other modulations attached to the key.

This Remapping Script will help in many ways like layering your desired sound with other Kontakt Instruments , Other features like Tuning and ADSR control for each hit will help in many ways.

We are using this features in many other ways - Like we are using bass drum of Dholak(Private Library) and Right drum of Tabla (Left drum Volume of Tabla can be turn down via UI ) to get entirely new texture/new kind of drums.

Load /Unload Buttons for mic positions for saving RAM.

How To Install

Simply drop .nki and .nkr file in Solo Tabla Folder and hit replace.
Audiority Polaris v1.2.1 Incl Patched & Keygen WIN/MAC-R2R
Polaris is an echo/reverb plugin inspired by early hardware digital reverbs of the late 1970s and able to provide echo, ambience and reverb out of a single multitap delay line.

When hardware digital reverbs came out to the market they were really expensive. Most manufacturers were already exploiting chains of comb and allpass filters (smoother reverbs, but expensive in both resources and chips), there were other techniques involving the use of a single multitap delay line to create a reasonable reverb while keeping the cost affordable.

That idea is so simple yet powerful: you mix a bunch of unmodulated taps (Early Reflections) with the remaining modulated taps (Diffusion) to create a cheap but convincing reverb.

We extended this technique by making the Echo tap recirculating with the Diffusion section, allowing longer reverb tails. Furthermore you can easily edit all taps to create your own room responses, resonant combs, Karplus-like tuned delay lines, Chorus, Flanging, Vibrato and much more.

Specifications
Single Multitap Delay Line
Early Reflections (8 Programmable Taps)
Diffusion (16 Programmable Modulated Taps)
Echo (Ms, Sync, Tuned)
Echo Modulation
LFO (Sin/Tri/Rnd – Hz, Sync)
