Patching a source
« on: February 22, 2008, 11:56:10 PM »
Well, I finally did what most everyone here has done: left the deck on pause when I should have been recording. That caused me to miss the first song and a half before I noticed that the timer wasn't moving. Thankfully, there was another taper there who is allowing me to patch my source with his.

So, how do I go about doing this? Do I use his first two tracks in their entirety, then fade into mine during crowd noise? Or, do I crossfade into my source where my source begins (middle of the 2nd track)?

I'm thinking a middle crossfade might be... disruptive to the listener.

The sources are:

Mine: Peluso subcards > Aerco > Korg MR-1
Rhett: AKG 391 (cards) > stock UA-5 > DA-P1

I would experiment w/ both ways and see what sounds best to your ears and then decide. I think fading in after the 2/nd song is going to be the easiest but picking a soft spot after your source kicks in and fine tuning the volume of both sources to match might sound better then a fade and easier on the ears. Good luck.

I may take you up on that. First, I have to get the other source, then I'm going to play around with it myself first to see what I can do. If my work sucks, I may pass it off to you :)

if you have the cash, pick up steinberg wave lab.  i just got this a few weeks ago, and the "montage" feature is by far the easiest way to patch anything.

at least with what ive tried.

You can download Goldwave and use it for free and it does all the same shit that Wavelab does.. If you end up liking goldwave you can buy the full version for like $35 instead of over $500.

I ended up doing a crossfade in the track, and think it came out pretty well. Matching the levels was easy enough, but my source is "bigger" due to the subcards picking up more room. Worked out well enough, I think.

Now, I just have to remember to unpause the deck when the band comes on!

'Just read this... I don't know what editing sw you used but Audition has a stereo field expansion tool that might work to make the one source "bigger".  You might like the effect.
