    Out of Time - JABB

    This is just a little 40's style tune. This set in a small club. Sort of an up close and personal type place. I'm just practicing mixing skills and learning the ins and outs of J&BB. Enjoy this, it's a relaxing piece from an era long past. You might say its:

    Thanks for this Rich,
    I enjoyed the musical style from the era, but it is the tweaks here and there that give it the realism you are practising to achieve. Things like some notes slightly ahead or behind the beat, differing velocity levels, balance between instruments - the well phrased clarinet needing to be further forward in the mix etc. I don't mean to sound like an expert, just someone with a little expertise. There is a difference. Do you have a control surface with knobs and sliders that allow you to adjust the cc parameters.

    Best Regards

    You know I listened to this and moved the clarinet back in the mix because I thought it was too forward. The trumpet and clarinet are still not how I would like them. That's why this piece is being done.

    Thanks for the comments, they are appreciated!

    To hear ourselves as others hear us.
    Everyone using and listening on different sound systems. I use a BlueSky Media desk system with sub-bass unit below the desk. it seems transparent to me but I can't remember the last time I had my ears syringed.

    Wow... sounds great to me! Some neat nuances
    in this, especially a couple of spots in the trumpet.

    I would strongly recommend, however, that you
    move the trumpet exactly twenty-seven inches to
    the right... lol. Seriously, the handling of the room
    is such a subjective matter. And one factor for
    me, when mixing, is that I've rarely heard performances
    like this in "perfect" rooms, live. It tends to color my
    perceptions, as the mind "corrects" what the ear is
    hearing.

    Whatever the case, fine job on this!

    Thanks for the comments, David. As usual, you are very perceptive. Room colorization is something in a live venue we all are capable of getting past. It's in the recorded version that we have no visual or 3 dimensional senses to apply. Therefore, it is extremely important that the engineer gets it right!

    Too bad I'm a musician and not an engineer. (Well, some will say I'm neither) LOL

    Thanks again!

    If I could just stop this ringing in my ears, maybe I could mix better.

    Now *that* is a darned interesting point, Rich; one
    I never considered.

    When we hear a live performance -- there's a degree
    of coordination between what the eye sees and what
    the ear hears. The brain adjusts its perceptions
    accordingly.

    That may be a psychological point that inhibits my
    own mixing, because I always have a visual image
    clearly in mind when mixing
    ... I literally watch the
    performance in mind's eye while doing the sound
    treatment, and that may be a bad idea.

    Rich,

    Really nice piece and I think good instrumentation and mixing. Now to adjust the room a little with the sliding panels.....ohh yes there we have it

    You are correct, the acoustics play in big time in a live performance as well as the performers. Each performance is unique in one way or another. That's the fun of a live performance.
