  1. SOTW Member Compositions & Arrangements
    Trying to get the hang of the video editing software. This song started life as a jazz tune, but without drums and bass it kinda just sounds like a "contemporary composition," so to speak. Extended usage of one motif and the major scale throughout. Check it out and see if you dig...
  2. Working Sax Pros
    A couple days ago I started responding to a post about home recording here on SOTW and realized that my response was getting long... VERY long. Also, it occurred to me that I've been giving similar advice to many of my friends who are brilliant musicians but know next to nothing about recording...
  3. Acoustics
    Hi all I am a "weekend warrior" sax player, and my day job for the last 30+ years has been designing audio electronics and writing audio algorithms. Since I'm approaching my retirement years, I undertook a project that combines my hobby and my expertise. The problem I am trying to solve is to...
  4. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hey all! Looking to purchase a microphone for home use (saxophone recording) with a budget of around $300. I did some recording at my buddy's place with a Carvin CTM100 tube condenser and LOVED the way it came out on both alto and tenor. I'll link a couple of those recordings below so you can...
  5. Electronic Equipment
    Greetings, SOTW music producers! This is a question to our lovely community's studio engineers, home studio producers, and all-around gear nuts. It's far from the first time this question has been asked, and it will certainly not be the last. But I'm curious what your very favorite microphone...
  6. Bb Tenor
    I'm trying to decide if I want to keep this P. Mauriat 66R. What's your opinion of horn "A" (Mark VI) vs horn "B" (66R)? What differences do you hear? https://streamable.com/lo8af
  7. YouTube videos
    I have received a copyright strike on my alto saxophone cover on "Watermelon Man" by Herbie Hancock! I have used a public domain backing track (Jamey Aebersold Publications) and a public domain vector (an obligatory attribution of vector maker though). I cannot figure out, what should i do...
  8. YouTube videos
    I call this the sax vlog because there is lots of sax in it: in the studio song writing, saxophone recording, saxophone dueting... and my Sonny Rollins story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKJeS5RJXCQ. Cheers!
  9. Clarinet
    Hello clarinet peeps, I am a composer working on an EP. I only need one song recorded, then I am done. Everybody keeps promising to do it then disappears, it's frustrating. I have a solo piece for Clarinet in B flat that needs to be recorded. I have the sheet music and a digital mp3 of it. It's...
  10. Tips and Techniques
    I found this app that records your playing and places the tune on a spectrum that allows you to evaluate your tuning over the whole recording. It is an Android app called "Vocal Pitch Monitor". I have worked with a tuner but when I check my tuning note by note I tend to play to the tuner needle...
  11. Electronic Equipment
    I want a good multipurpose microphone, that is great for recording vocals, and commentary, as wells as saxophone recording (tenor sax) I am currently looking at shure sm58 and sm57 because I wanted a dynamic microphone because it doesn't pickup background sound very well. My price range is...
  12. Electronic Equipment
    I'm putting together a small home recording room, so I can get into recording. I have an iMac and I'm looking for an interface (and mic as well) that will provide excellent results. I've read great things about the Universal Audio Apollo Twin, so I was considering picking one up. The price is...
  13. Classical Saxophone
    Hi everyone. I am looking for any info pertaining to Suite Francaise; performance suggestions, master class files, etc. Of course, a recording would be great also- I've only found recordings of the Prelude and Sarabande, but would love to hear the Courante at the suggested tempo of Q=76-80! 2...
  14. Brand Name Players ...
    I'm going to post a link to this rare track without saying who is playing, nor where and when it was recorded. (Feel free to guess!) Hope it's enjoyable. https://db.tt/Qu0Y0Tld

  17. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    Hi just started having a go at doing a bit of mixing. Just wondering whether anyone has any advice in regards to using compression, reverb, mic placement etc. Here is a recent attempt I made on something recorded a few years ago. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6025447/Sunshine%20Track.mp3...
  18. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    I'm approximately 3.5 years in and I feel like while progression in tone, articulation and control is coming along I still need huge help with my dynamics whilst playing - especially just playing softly. I play with people rarely but enough to always get that look of 'geez, turn it down, man!'...

    Hi folks, I got my Zoom H4n, and now I want to make recordings with my tenor to post it here in the beginners/intermediate threat. I 'm interested which of the onboard effects you use for tenor recordings? And to be sure, I have to use the MTR mode? Is it possible to use the on boards mics...
