First, I’d like to share a simple straightforward recording I managed to make with the Zynthian
(it’s a render of the Take 5 classic, based on a midi file)
1#FS>FluidR3 GM/Tenor Sax
2#FS>FluidR3 GM/Yamaha Grand Piano
3#FS>FluidR3 GM/Alto Sax
4#FS>FluidR3 GM/Soprano Sax
6#FS>FluidR3 GM/Baritone Sax
( Yes, that DX7 really belongs there )
Even though the render works out mostly ok, you can hear some crackling on the recording (that I didn’t hear at record time). So I assume the volume output was still to loud or is there another possible explanation for the audible crackling? (even though I reduced the “volume” / “gain” settings to 80% or less on all layers, and managing the relative loudness of the layers is quite frustrating.
So here are my “Software” questions:
- Is there an easy way to manage the volume of the individual contributing layers in a single place ?
A Layer mixer of sorts ? (Right now, there are various settings inside the various engines at generation time).
- When recording it would really be helpfull to see the elapsed time of the recording on the Audio Recorder screen.
