你的DAW软件吸
Matthew Loel T. Hepworth on Sat, June 9th 9 comments
Platforms in music & tech have long seen a diverse range of opinions. Mac vs PC, Cubase vs Logic v Pro Tools, etc. It's fair to want the best, but Matthew Loel T Hepworth notices a new "Sucks" trend.

如果你像我一样,你使用的DAW(数字音频工作站)的节目录制音乐。和我一样,你偶尔访问各种论坛和博客,以帮助支持你的DAW与故障排除或操作。如果你这样做,我确定你已遇到经常发布的线程,其中有人认为,在DAW程序你使用很烂!

对于我来说,我是个斯坦伯格计划的大风扇的Cubase 。因此,我都会发笑,当我看到有人后,Cubase的吮吸!好吧,如果这样做,为什么是这个星球上最流行的DAW?像汉斯·齐默男爵科恩Erran,保罗·麦卡特尼,Stevie Wonder的,接受,,Kraftwerk的,Meshuggah,和无数的其他艺术家在Cubase(和后期制作的变种,Nuendo的)依靠他们的创造性努力。所以我在这里要告诉你:如果Cubase的吮吸,然后Pro Tools的工作室之一,收割机,逻辑,声纳,民主党,即时,原因等,也吸。也就是说,除非你添加的神奇成分。 (如香港专业教育学院激起你的兴趣,阅​​读。)

Cubase on computer

Cubase是一个非常受欢迎的,有能力的DAW,但它证明了一个坏的工人指责他的工具?


神奇的成分

早在1999年,我工作期间ALESIS ADAT输入全盛时期。我有巨大的财富多格莱美奖的获奖制片人弗朗西斯·巴克利(艾拉妮丝莫Morrisette,昆西·琼斯,LL Cool J与,史密斯飞船等),提出一个个ADAT诊所。他被证明对ADAT M20的观众400阿尔伯克基一个风和日丽的晚上。他在描述如何对ADAT(当时),他的工作流程更容易和他的制作更好的声音时,突然有人站起来,大声喊道:嘿,伙计中,香港专业教育学院听取,ADAT输入,我认为它听起来如S#

Does an ADAT make a good song sound better or not?

ADAT输入使一个很好的歌曲的声音,更好地或不?


事实是喜欢音乐人的音乐,而不是用来创建它的技术。例如,,录音菲尔Spectors华尔街的Ronettes,晶体,艾克和蒂娜·特纳等(300和350的Ampex)开放盘式录音机和3轨通常在单生产。 Beatles的最后4轨的开放式卷轴甲板上进行录音。布鲁斯·斯普林斯廷命中纪录内布拉斯加州由布鲁斯单独记录在他的房子(TASCAM Portastudio)4轨录音机。现在生病是第一个承认,在时间,它已采取写这篇文章,这些艺术家,连同那些在今天的广告牌10图表和记录使用现代的DAW技术,将已售出的比我在我的有生之年将更多的记录。我不是高兴。那只是现实。如果你的现实加权对单位出售的类别,然后IM嫉妒。


在DAW吮吸测试

现在像你这样的ID,我沉醉在这个实验:花点时间想想,你真的不喜欢一首流行歌曲或调整。我的意思是让你畏缩当你疯狂地达到改变通道或打跳跃键。 (不侮辱作曲家也不是他的成功,但我想吉米自助肌肉注射的Margaritaville。)你想这首歌?你听到了你的头呢?你恨我这样做是为了你呢?

好让说你发现了这首歌,你热情深恶痛绝,是您最喜爱的DAW录音软件或录音技术录制。现在,你喜欢它吗?这是突然更加赏心悦目听吗?你成为狂喜的声音发痒你的耳膜?因为我绝对,你的歌认为没有改变。它还是吸,右?嗯这就是我的观点:一首歌是如何被记录或什么差别不大,使你我的记录,肯定不会让任何区别的人不喜欢这首歌。神奇的成分,我提到之前(使用您选择的DAW,插入在这里击鼓)一个很好的歌曲。此外,重要的是要记住,即使你可能会喜欢它的人只有一个,这就是不够资格作为一个很好的歌曲。


总结

所以很多人一样,我用Cubase和用它做了很多。对于我来说,我生活,生产,混合,和掌握音乐以及Cubase上写的书籍和视频教程。有很多其他艺术家的命中记录使用Cubase。在同一时间,有无数的其他伟大的计划和录音技术,让我们大家都来体现我们的音乐创造力。与其说Cubase是伟大的和所有其他吸,我宁愿认识到,有许多路径音频必杀技。我们很幸运,住在一个时间,录音棚时,我们的笔记本电脑存在的溺爱,其中创意扼杀缺乏负担得起的录音设施,当互联网让我们与世界分享我们的艺术,并绕过唱片公司高管。这是神奇的时刻,所以保持音乐的流动,因为它不像技术,才是最重要的。

现在,如果你会原谅我,的Margaritaville刚刚在电台上,我不关心,如果它被记录的Cubase,Pro Tools中,STUDER或你有什么,我改变了通道。

    Exactly. There's also nothing wrong with using multiple DAWs if you're so inclined. Unfortunately I've been put off so much by this type of behavior that I've started to post far less at certain forums or avoid others completely, even though I've never had anyone say anything about my DAW of choice directly. The pretension just saps the fun out of forums for me and after having to prod through fights about DAWs or operating systems, I just end up doing something else more constructive. It's obnoxious and shows a lack of experience in my opinion, especially when most people, let alone most of the naysayers, likely don't even exhaust all of the capabilities of current DAWs anyway. I think it's only the uninspired who would condemn a tool or embrace one as their boldest artistic statement, solely to conform to an technical group or brand. I mean, they are but tools and though the stability and workflow of your tools does impact you, it is by far the most subjective and utilitarian factor when you're being creative.

    @B.J.: I wholeheartedly agree. It IS draining to get caught up in threads that equate to food-fights, the partaking in of which does diminish both the involvement and the enjoyment that forums can provide in abundance. @Scott S.: Yes, you're right. Back when I was selling recording gear, I would regularly encounter the guy who bought item after item until he had a fully-stocked studio...and that look of terror in his eyes when he realized, "Crap, now I have everything, so I'm out of excuses for why I'm not recording." It's that kind of guy who is generally more boisterous about what gear sucks and doesn't suck.

    Thank you Matthew for cutting through the noise. :) Ultimately, I have only one goal in mind when I make music--to make music that someone (anyone) will want to listen to. I use every tool in my arsenal to realize that goal because in the end, the (average) listener won't care how I did it. All they'll care about is whether they like it or not. I'm a Cubase user as well (not a lover or a hater... just a user :). I admit I get curious about the workflow of other DAWs, but I'd ultimately rather take the time to learn what I have and make music, rather than pine for what I don't have and never get anything done. Thanks for your great tutorials--as YOU are the one who taught me the basics of Cubase.

  • Touche'. I use Cubase and Logic and find them equally pleasing and easy to use. I wish more self-proclaimed 'recording artists' in this digital world would realize that 'poor tone in' results in 'poor tone out'. And, that a horrible song recorded on the most expensive, highest quality gear just results in a high fidelity version of the same crappy, horrible song.

    Excellent article Matt, couldn't agree more. Different DAWs do give way for different workflow methods. But one isn't a better 'songwriter' than the other. In the end it does come down to the song.

    Welp, As far as I'm concerned, the quality of the song is not relevant regarding what I think of a particular company's program. For example, I started off with Cubasis on a Mac, and it was very buggy, wouldn't do some very basic things it was supposed to do. I later tried a later version on the Mac, and it, too, was very buggy. These experiences were so inspiration-killing, that I've never bothered with the follow-ups from Steinberg. The most important thing for me is whether the program works as advertised, and, if it doesn't, the company rectifies the situation. Now, all programs (so I've read), have their quirks and ideosyncracies, but if a program just won't work, even though the hardware and OS are correctly configured, then it, as the saying goes, 'sucks.' YMMV :-)

    Nice to see some love for Cubase on the Mac. People are amazed to learn that there's a Mac version... not sure why!

    At first I used to think that at the root of this kind of "____ sucks" chatter was naivete, and nothing more; people regurgitating marketing slogans like "industry standard" when it comes to PT, others getting defensive about Apple in threads where discussions about demonstrable bugs in Logic were characterized as "Apple bashing". But then again, I've also seen hardcore professionals defend the merits of their DAW of choice in unrelenting, black and white terms which smack more of fanaticism than reason (no pun intended). Ultimately, who cares which DAW you use, or which one I use? Sure, it's a darn good question to ask when getting into a collaborative situation, but to question the merits of other people's choices online smells suspiciously of an excuse to have an argument more than anything else. Ultimately, when it comes to DAWs, there is no inherent good and bad. And certainly there is no inherent "best or worst" other than whichever one (if not several) are suitable towards one's creative needs. That makes them all "different", and different doesn't equal "sucks".

    Great one Matt! I love the comment about the guy who has finally assembled the 'perfect studio' and then sheepishly realizes that he's got no more excuses... I have used Cubase on Macs happily since Cubase 5 and before that on Windows with 4. I suppose that once invested in a workflow and legacy issues (plugs etc), it makes little sense for many to change what they're comfortable with. Switching campaigns are probably ineffective for this reason. For me, I also feel that in almost every area of comparison with other DAWs, I'm lucky enough to have made the best possible all-round choice ;-)
