I’ve got a lot of improz from the second half of last year. As vlad spotted, they’re mostly pretty deprezzing
It is an interesting challenge to retrospectively edit them, ie I have ONE take only and if there are wrong notes, try to fix them or work around them.
Might be of interest to da fatty that I’ve worked out that within Izotope I can fix most split notes by zooming in on the y (frequency) axis and applying extreme -db gain to the errant notes and their harmonics. Time consuming but time is the one thing I have atm…
Da 88 isn’t in perfect tune which is really annoying because if I’d done these improz on a concert 88 rather than one in my living room I think they’d really be something special. Then again, I don’t have limitless access to a top quality 88, or even any access right now
Any feelings regarding this sumwut uptempo but not very cheerful audio sample? “Marche a l’enfer” It is unreverbed thus fully natural. I tried some reverb settings last night and wasn’t convinced they were an improvement.
I’ve already taken the edge off some of the higher ambient mechanism derived noise. The mics are basically too close because there’s not a huge amount I can do unless I buy a mount and hang them from the ceiling. I don’t like taking too much off the very high frequencies (within the spectral editor) because I think it gets to a point where you’re negatively affecting the sonority.
