[TUTORIAL] U-Myx

Postby totom on Sat Jul 12, 2008 2:44 pm

Here's a tutorial to use the type of sources called UMYX and record different parts from it when the exporting function is not available. If you want to know more about UMYX, go on the website, you can even download some examples.

First, we're going to select the recording source.

Image

Go into the volume settings by clicking on the icon into the system tray (or an equivalent, in the image, it's one of the two first icons in the bottom row).

When you're into the sound volume panel which should look pretty much like this:

Image

Click on Properties.

Image

Click on Record (Enregistrement) without forgetting to select what should be called either Stereo Mix, "What U Hear" or Stereo Out... Here it's "Mixage StÈrÈo". Then you need to Select the Stereo Mix:

Image

Now close the current window...

...and open the UMyx application you want to get parts from, which will present the following way:

Image

As in this case, we're interested in lead vocals, we set it up to the maximum.

Then we're going to do our mix, which consists in isolating the vocals or, on the opposite, creating an instrumental.

Image

Here, we did an acapella by removing all the squares where there are vocals (we can keep a bit of instrumentation to have something to help you mix it in time)

Image

And here's the example to make an instrumental:

Image

However, before pressing PLAY, let's open Audition (or any software you like than can fit the role).

Image

Create a new audio file with the above properties.

Image

Press the Record button, and right after, go click play into the UMyx app.

Don't touch anything during the recording (especially something in windows which is able to produce a sound).

Image

When the music's over, you get something which should look like this:

Image

Here, the saturating parts are the instrumental parts we kept on purpose when there was no vocals.

Select these instrumental parts one after another to get their levels down:

Image

Find the Amplify effect and apply -6 dB on these, maybe even more depending on the track.

Now you're able to normalize after the peaking parts of the vocals.

Image

Select All and apply the Normalize effect after you're sure there no instrumental part which peaks above the rest. Check every option and put -0.1 into the "normalize to" case (personally I prefer not to normalize to 0 dB).

Now you need to convert the acapella into a proper format.

Image

Open the conversion window, choose 16 bits and stereo if you need it (in our case, mono is enough)

Image

Save into a well ordered directory as a wave file.

Convert it in to FLAC

Image

And here's an acapella ready to be mixed into Ableton Live (which natively reads FLAC format)
