Music mixing/editing

Posted by Mycroft [send private reply] at September 16, 2002, 08:27:56 PM

Does anybody know any good sites to learn and read about music mixing and editing? Yeah I know this is probably off topic, but I've been looking around the web and can't seem to find any good sites. So hopefully some of you have.

If you're looking for software for audio editing, Cool Edit is supposed to be verly good. I think there is program called Audocity or something like that for editing also. I don't knwo of any informative sites off hand. If you are looking for actuly making music/sounds Jeskol Buzz is free and good[ www.buzzmachines.com ].

http://audacity.sf.net is the home of Audacity. My favorite audio editor is GLAME (http://glame.sf.net) but then again I have some code in it :) I don't know much about general audio editing, but http://linuxsound.at is a good place for GNU/Linux specific stuff and probably has pointers to more general audio editing information.

When I was a Windows user, I used a combination of Logic Audio Platinum 5, Soundforge and Cool Edit. Very feature rich programs, great for any audio needs.

Now that I'm a Linux user, I've found some decent programs as well. Audacity has already been mentioned, and it's a relatively simple multitrack mixer. Ecasound is also a fantastic package, but is command line only. It does a great job of playing monitor tracks while recording --- very little latency as compared to Logic with my sound card in Windows!

As far as learning about mixing, there is a lot of reading you can do, but the best thing to do as far as I'm concerned is to practice, and use your ears as your guide.

Ecasound has several Qt and KDE frontends.

Yes, but I haven't thought they were really mature enough for use yet, so I didn't mention them. Actually, I've only seen 1, so which others would you be refering to?
