Little Pieces (Vocal Mix)
To prepare the bulgar wheat, follow any directions on the package/bulk bin, or simply soak 2 cups of dry bulgar wheat with 2 cups of water in the refridgerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour. (The soaking has always been enough for the kind we buy, but some bulgar is cut into bigger pieces and requires some cooking.) Place in a large salad/serving bowl.
Little Pieces (Vocal Mix)
The result should be an industry-level and highest-quality sound. All the elements are seamlessly united together like pieces of a puzzle, where you can not see them anymore as individuals, but as a complete picture, something really whole, something that by itself is a masterpiece
Note: make sure you set your threshold near the quietest word, but not so low that you start capturing breaths or excess noise. If your breaths start to sound loud and extreme, move your threshold a little higher.

First, you can manually edit and chop an audio region by cutting your existing lead vocal track into pieces that you can then loop, or drag and drop. The key to your chopping sound is cutting off your audio region near the middle of a word or note, then repeating the phrase or looping it.
The 'View' menu presents lots of options for what information is to be displayed with the analysed audio. The only settings I generally have ticked are 'Show Pitch Curves' and 'Show Note Separations'. Pitch Curves are the thin lines that join the notes to show the variation in pitch, and Note Separations are the vertical lines between each note, which make it easy to see how and where Melodyne has decided to separate the notes in a performance. This is particularly useful when splitting a single note into smaller pieces, as we'll discover a little later.
If the vocals have been well sung and require very little tuning, as in this example, Melodyne's Correct Pitch function provides a really quick way to get everything sitting in the right place. Highlighting the captured vocal and clicking the Correct Pitch button opens a window with Correct Pitch Centre and Correct Pitch Drift slider controls. As long as any note splits such as those we've just done have been performed, pushing both sliders up to 100 percent usually makes for a decent starting point. From there, only a few minor tweaks will usually be needed to get the vocal sounding really sweet.As long as you've done all the necessary note splits, it can be good to set the pitch-centre and pitch-drift correction settings to 100 percent. For one thing, this will show you clearly if Melodyne is trying to force a Blob to the wrong note!
How to mix vocals and music? This is probably one of the most frequently asked questions after "how to mix music in general." I'm sure that by using my little piece of advice you will surely take a step forward in quality of your next mixes.
Tracking vocals into DAWs has encouraged us to be a little twitchy about how much we want to commit to EQ and compression settings on the way into our computers, because we know that we have the option to tweak these effects (and many others) later on in the production and mix process. But securing a strong and characterful sound from the outset will save lots of time and laborious polishing later down the line. Channel strips can help you shape your desired sound from the get-go.
Regarding preventing speaker level distortion, you need to know a few pieces of information; the maximum volume your speakers can handle, the average volume your event runs, and the level of the loudest part of the event. You can then determine how much headroom you have in your production. This headroom is the measurement of the difference between the average sound produced out of the sound system and the loudest output level the system can handle.
However, one thing we tend to do with female vocals is ADD a little bit of that good mud back in. Depending on the female vocalist or how her vocals were recorded, they can often come out sounding a bit thin.
You might also consider using a low-pass filter to push your reverb back a little bit in your mix and get rid of any frequencies masking your vocal. You can checkout this article for more vocal reverb tips & tricks.
The good news is that getting decent vocal recordings at home is entirely possible, even with modest gear. With the following tips and techniques, you too could produce killer vocal tracks, even if your home studio is a little more than a decent laptop to produce music on and a couple of mics.
At the end of the day, what you are trying to capture is emotion. You want the vocal to move and inspire the listener, and to evoke feelings. In the quest to achieve the perfect take, there is a risk of losing all the little imperfections that could make a vocal track so compelling and memorable.
They developed a calculation to divide the sound into smaller pieces and then estimated the source location for all the small pieces, correcting for delays caused by the speed of sound in air at room temperature and at standard atmospheric pressure.
...Walrus remains a standout track, if only for its all-round oddness. Whether George Martin could fully comprehend the images and concepts of the LSD-baptised Beatles is moot, but his execution of warped moods remains peerless. Again, the cellos were close-miked, bringing out the scratchiness over the warm notes. Lennon's voice is deliberately distorted, one of the earliest such treatments on a vocal. In the middle of the two halves, the song breaks down and the whine of a radio being tuned (Ringo) is inserted. In the mix, the radio experiment caught just a snippet of Shakespeare's King Lear being broadcast (these were the days before sample clearances). When it came time to do the stereo mix, the happenstance of the radio breakdown could not be recreated, so it had to be 'borrowed' from the mono mix, with some special EQ on opposite sides to fake a stereo effect. The Mike Sammes Singers were employed to add a backing chorus, which was an odd choice, given their reputation for light, poppy repertoire. But George Martin's score, and the surreal text ("Stick it up your jumpah!" etc.) gave a disturbing effect that delighted Lennon. As its writer would go on to say about the track, "Enough little bitties to keep you going, even 100 years later."
Certainly a beautiful and iconic Beatles song, recorded first as more of a "band" track with the usual Beatles instrumentation: drums, bass, guitars and keyboard (the beautiful Mellotron flutes heard at the opening). Later, John felt it didn't capture what he was hoping for, so a more esoteric version was effected with strings and horns over a thick percussive backing track. Neither was satisfactory to Lennon, so he asked if the two could be combined. George Martin explained it would be quite tricky, as they were at different tempos and in different keys. As luck would have it, the faster one was in the higher key, so they could be matched by slowing the tape machine, thereby dropping the pitch and the key simultaneously. Casual listeners never detect the splice, but the two halves are quite different pieces (sonically they are completely different, excepting the Lennon vocal). Even so, the resulting arrangement works brilliantly, as the complexity and intensity of the track intensify from beginning to end.
The sound of the Massive Passive is a bit more colored due to the tube stage at the end of the circuit. Manley strived to give a similar response to a Pultec EQ, but decided to add four bands and high and low pass filters to allow for more precise control over the curves you are creating. Because of these aspirations, Manley created an EQ that borrowed a little bit from a lot of great EQ designs. Another fantastic thing to note about the Massive Passive is how the tubes interact with large boosts in the upper-middle and high-frequency sections. Because of the high roll-off of the tube coloration, these frequencies can be boosted quite eagerly without the worry of adding additional sibilance or harshness. Similarly, the sound of this unit allows for a much beefier low end than many similar designs without as much of a worry about muddiness.
SSL is another company that has excelled at creating legendary consoles. With the introduction of the SSL 4000E in 1979, SSL had become a huge name in the recording industry. Many pieces of gear have been inspired by this series of consoles including their famous bus compressor, but one piece of their history can be traced back to the console EQs on the E and G series consoles. Now a part of their X-Rack system, SSL has built a stereo equalizer that can be switched to have the bell curves of the E or G consoles.
through-composed: continuous contrasting sections are composed together without repetitions of previous material. Ballad songs and improvisatory instrumental pieces, like the fantasia, toccata or prelude are examples of additive compositions. Some Renaissance genres (mass, motet, madrigal) are typically through-composed.
Hi, Addie. I'm Carrie. I'm a speech pathologist. I'm going to be helping out with the evaluation today. We're going to be doing a type of swallowing evaluation where we put a camera in your nose. We give you different consistencies of food items to swallow and watch you swallow those. This is the camera we're going to use. It goes in your nose about this far, just a little bit past that white line. There's not much space between your nose and your throat, so it doesn't have to go in very far. We're not in there very long. Just long enough to take a look around at the anatomy, give you a couple of things to eat and drink, watch you swallow those and then we come out, okay. So the different items we're going to be swallowing. We'd like to do an assortment of consistencies, so we do a thin liquid, a puree, and then a solid consistency. I put a little green food coloring in the liquid and the puree that just allows us to see it better when the cameras in place. Okay. 041b061a72
