Hey Guys, I'm rather embarassed to admit this but for a few years I've been mixing my audio in Cubase down to a mono file, without realising I had the option of sleceting 'stereo interleaved' in the mixdown menu. unsure.gif What a dunce. dry.gif

I never connected the dots before. Now that I have, I just think of allll the tracks I've uploaded / sent to people and I cringe with annoyance ! Oh well, at least I noticed it.. better late than never hey ?

What things have you done wrong for a long time before you noticed it ?

Can't really think of a stupid mistake now...I used to hold my pick in a different way for years and years than I do now, kind of flat between my thumb and the palm of my first finger. I think Todd called it "classical" at some point...there seems to be a classical position for everything, right wink.gif Back to the topic before this gets outta hand...anyway, the pick would hit the strings with the flat side, which isn't too bad when you play chords. But it gave me trouble when I wanted to do AP a bit faster. So I switched to the "shredder grip" 1,5 years ago and use it all the time now. Just lately I discovered that players like Matthias Jabs use their pick in a somewhat flat position and can still play really fast...
Okay, not really a stupid mistake, but something I did for years that held me back in my progress.

What is the shredder grip? It sounds impressive!

If we told you it would put your life in danger...



Nah, I think he just means holding it between the side of your finger and your thumb.. the 'correct' and 'normal' way smile.gif

ohh that's so bad Ben! Fortunately you discovered it! In my early days I used Cakewalk for mixing and I remember adding louders and quieters to the wavs. Then I discovered that I used to cut the peaks with the louders and then lowering the files with the quieters but without peaks. I was destroying the audio files during my early mixes!

Fair enough, those are honest mistakes smile.gif When I started recording electric guitar on computer, it was in ACID Pro software, I used a DS1 distortion, straight into audio card, and tried to boost it - and fried it cool.gif

Well, once you go over a certain speed the technology can't keep up with it.... slow the notes down wink.gif (and give us a chance to catch up as well !) biggrin.gif

I was careful next time, it was the time when cards were bought separately, and cost more money smile.gif
