Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Unwanted resonance
July 07, 2009, 10:20:29 AM

Here's a question for you ambient production gurus.. I've been recording some interesting (to me anyway) recordings with guitar, ebow, reverbs etc, all with software plugins. Although I'm pleased with some of the results, there's some annoying resonances in the mids that I just can't get rid of.

I've tried EQ, dynamic compression, drastic EQ(!) and I can improve the situation slightly, but I'm really trying to get those smooth velvety drifts I hear when listening to stuff like Steve Roach, Vidna Obmana etc.

I've got a piece here that demonstrates the issue:

I actually have a better example at home that I'll try to upload.

Any advice greatly appreciated!  :)

Do you have a Mac or PC?

Just to warn you I bought one of these to use with a Dell laptop, and couldn't get it to play ball. Having checked a few forums it seems a lot of people had the same problem. This was a while back so maybe their drivers have improved though...
