Logic Pro X was good up until its latest 10.4.5 update. Accessibility thereto is starting to lag, and things that once worked are becoming problems. So saith those that use it. I own it but know very little about how to use it, so I can't comment from personal knowledge.

24 years ago when I was using an Apple Mac LC-630, Pro-Tools was the choice of App to use for audio recording and production and with very good reason.
Now however? Well last time I went up onto the Pro-Tools web site I came off the site more confused by the various versions I had seen available than I had been before my visit.

I did go ahead and get both Ferrite and Hokusai for around $39.98 combined $US. It will take me a while to learn them with my iPad Pro. I am looking forward to the experience. I used Adobe Audition years ago when I had vision. I was encouraged by the noise reduction that is described on several reviews I read for Ferrite Studio Pro. That was one of the major strengths of Adobe Audition.

Hi,
The original eMail was written 4 days ago and since then I’ve had more time to play with Ferrite Recording Studio and so on.
Regarding normalisation? Ferrite shouldn’t require this function as it already has an AGC which can be toggled in the settings.
In any case most people have a reference with their system that they can set levels by so you will know pretty much straight away if the level is too high, lower levels can be tolerated of course as there is no chance of clipping.
Secondly ferrite Recording Studio is ana absolute joy to use particularly if you’re using an iPad with a keyboard connected, not only do you have the excellent touch gestures and shortcuts at your fingertips but you also have quite a good list of keyboard shortcuts to do the job with.

Twisted Wave and TW Recorder are some of my other favourite audio Apps
for IOS.
TW Recorder is free but for a small extra fee you can buy a complete
conversion package so if one say recorded using Ferrite Studio etc
then they could use the extra add-in on tW Recorder to convert say to FLAC, OGG etc.
With the new generations of IOS devices conversion is incredibly fast.

What's the latest on PT on PC? Does it work or not any more? I know it's a thing on the Mac. I will try Reaper again at some point. Just not sure if it can out put in surround sound. Like Sound Forge Pro can. I again just had to give Sound Forge up because it hated my Zoom H6.

As far as choices of which Pro Tools to own, take the standard version. PT First is a bit on the light side--doesn't come with many extras such as audio plugins or instruments. You'll pay more for standard Pro Tools, but it's an industry standard on Macintosh computers, so if you're a Mac person, this is definitely the direction to take.


Of course, there's always Reaper, which is cross-platform between OS X and Windows, but the Windows implementation is better (in my unhumble opinion).


If you search the Internet long enough and hard enough, you'll find articles and videos with titles like "Why I Switched From Pro Tools to Reaper," and vice versa, so it really comes down to look and feel, although PT people will always hawk their system as being the best, even though it's unwieldy sometimes. I've been dabbling in it for sixteen months now, and while I can get stuff done in it at least with MIDI, I have had absolutely no experience recording audio with it because (A) that's not my thing, and (B) I don't sing or play an acoustic instrument that can fit in my crackerbox-palace apartment, or know anyone who does and needs to have it recorded.

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

I may as well mention here an exercise I did when I first started exploring Hosukai.
I wanted some idea of how flexible the multi track environment was so I laid down my first track which was nothing special, just a recording from the iPad microphone.
I was able to use commands on the screen with Voiceover to select and scrub through the audio I had recorded.
I then started a new track and many another recording from the iPad microphone which I then copied and pasted as a new track to the first track I had recorded.
Finally I imported a song - as a track - from my Music library and pasted this into the recording which now had 3 tracks.
You can of course convert each track from mono to stereo and keep adding or manipulating tracks as required.
At the end of your project - when you are satisfied with how it sounds - you can “Down Mix” the project and save or share it.

Protools is great for the Mac, not accessible under Windows. It is a
bit quirky, so you have to learn a lot of procedures and once you know
the product, you then will want to get flotools which is a bunch of
keyboard Maestro macros which makes voiceover speak various useful
things, but once you do all that it works quite well.

The App is designed to function differently than BackPack Studio

I'm a firm believer in - wherever possible - supporting developers
who go out of their way to make their products accessible and
user-friendly, the developer of Ferrite Studio Recorder has
certainly made the App very accessible it would appear from the
short exploration I had of the App over the last half hour.
The user guide is easy to follow and can be either read through
the App or downloaded as a separate file for reading on other devices etc.

Re: Accessible Audio Production Apps

I think ProTools is still the gold standard for those who do audio editing on the Mac. But from what I have read, I think you have to subscribe to ProTools for around US$25 a month in order to use the full version of the program. I’ve heard it’s very accessible.

If you are a Mac user, but don’t want to spend that much money on ProTools, I’ve heard that Amadeus Pro is comparable for only around US$60. I’m curious to know if anyone on this list has used Amadeus pro and how well it works. How accessible is it? Was it hard to learn?

I explored Adobe Audition years ago and have no idea how accessible the App is now.
Naturally the more accessible Apps out there for as many platforms is to be encouraged so if you are one of those people still using Adobe Audition then please tell us how you're getting along, I for one would be interested to hear.
At present I'm trying to find out how Pro-Tools is looking both for Windows and Mac.
24 years ago when I was using an Apple Mac LC-630, Pro-Tools was the choice of App to use for audio recording and production and with very good reason.
Now however? Well last time I went up onto the Pro-Tools web site I came off the site more confused by the various versions I had seen available than I had been before my visit.

I did go ahead and get both Ferrite and Hokusai for around $39.98 combined $US. It will take me a while to learn them with my iPad Pro. I am looking forward to the experience. I used Adobe Audition years ago when I had vision. I was encouraged by the noise reduction that is described on several reviews I read for Ferrite Studio Pro. That was one of the major strengths of Adobe Audition.

Hi,
The original eMail was written 4 days ago and since then I’ve had more time to play with Ferrite Recording Studio and so on.
Regarding normalisation? Ferrite shouldn’t require this function as it already has an AGC which can be toggled in the settings.
In any case most people have a reference with their system that they can set levels by so you will know pretty much straight away if the level is too high, lower levels can be tolerated of course as there is no chance of clipping.
Secondly ferrite Recording Studio is ana absolute joy to use particularly if you’re using an iPad with a keyboard connected, not only do you have the excellent touch gestures and shortcuts at your fingertips but you also have quite a good list of keyboard shortcuts to do the job with.

Twisted Wave and TW Recorder are some of my other favourite audio Apps
for IOS.
TW Recorder is free but for a small extra fee you can buy a complete
conversion package so if one say recorded using Ferrite Studio etc
then they could use the extra add-in on tW Recorder to convert say to FLAC, OGG etc.
With the new generations of IOS devices conversion is incredibly fast.

Re: Ferrite Recording Studio

Please let us know how you’re doing with these apps. I would love to track your progress and know what you are doing and producing with them. Tell us what exercises and other kinds of things you are doing to teach yourself how to use them. I think Manny would like to know as we are all trying to teach ourselves how to do much of this.

Good luck,

I'm a firm believer in - wherever possible - supporting developers who
go out of their way to make their products accessible and
user-friendly, the developer of Ferrite Studio Recorder has certainly
made the App very accessible it would appear from the short exploration
I had of the App over the last half hour.
The user guide is easy to follow and can be either read through the App
or downloaded as a separate file for reading on other devices etc.

Hi:

Thank you for sending this! I’m totally blind since birth, I use iOS
with VoiceOver and I just bought this app. I’ve been looking for a
tutorial. Now if I could only find tutorials for Hokusai and Ferrite
Recording Studio.

Thanks again,

Re: Little Sub-Woofers

Howard Traxler <howard@...>
 

Seems you could be right:  smaller cones to make further excursion could produce greater sound pressure and low frequencies.  I have not taken one of these apart so don't know about construction.  Wonder it they are ported or non-ported. Wonder if one can purchase speakers of this type to build home made speaker systems.  I still like my 15 inch woofers in large cabinets best; and using high-powered amplifier.

There are a couple of ways that companies are getting more out of small subwoofers. Probably the biggest thing is that they can partly make up for the lack of efficiency of smaller cones and cabinets by electronically equalizing the signal and by including higher power internal power amplification. Also, sometimes speaker cones are used that can move further than they used to. This means they can be driven harder. Some of the smaller subwoofers really do an amazing job. I have heard a couple, though, that do well at deep base but sometimes tend to "double", where low bass notes have their harmonics produced more than on the larger subwoofers. Therefore, one needs to listen carefully to be sure you are getting what you want.

Does anyone know exactly how they get *SO* much bass out of those little
sub-woofers; I mean the real small ones that havve maybe a five or six
inch speaker in them?  I've seen Altec Lansing and Logitek three-ways
that really boom out that sub-woofing sound.  I never took one apart so
I don't have any idea what's in there that does that?

Re: Ferrite and Hokusai

Yes both are a worthwhile purchase, cost me under $50 in Australia to purchase both Apps through the IOS Apps Store.

Yes, both have different functions and different purposes. Ferrite is mainly for audio journalism and podcasting. Hokusai is mainly for producing commercials, cool things for radio and other types of audio that you normally hear.

I recommend purchasing both so that you can make the most of whatever it is you want to do in Audio. If you buy both apps, I think it’ll cost you around $40. It’s pretty inexpensive went you consider all that these two apps do.

Hi,

I see that both Ferrite and Hokusai are by the same developer. I'm looking
at them for my iPad Pro 2018. Do they serve different functions? Have a
different set of features? Or would it be redundant to have both?

I am considering the Pro version with add in purchases.

Re: Ferrite Recording Studio

The one I’ve been using several monts and loving it, is Grabadora de voz HD - audio de Linfei Ltd.
https://apps.apple.com/mx/app/grabadora-de-voz-hd-audio/id492995106 however I kind of not like very much that yu need to get the markers depending on the length of the file editing, in order to start selecting chunks An app like GoldWave on the computer, where when listening to a file, be able to place the markers and edit rom these, would b great on iOs! For starters, voice recorder is awesome! I like it tons better than audioMemos!

Twisted Wave and TW Recorder are some of my other favourite audio Apps for IOS.
TW Recorder is free but for a small extra fee you can buy a complete conversion package so if one say recorded using Ferrite Studio etc then they could use the extra add-in on tW Recorder to convert say to FLAC, OGG etc.
With the new generations of IOS devices conversion is incredibly fast.

Yes, there are other apps that can be used to convert audio files into various file formats. I’m not sure what all of those apps are, but I know they exist. Even garage band is pretty cool! I just wish there were more tutorials for Ferrite recording studio and Hokusai. The user guides are good, but more tutorials would be helpful. Maybe someone will develop tutorials in the near future.

Yes ferrite Recording Studio and Hokusaki are great Apps to work with under IOS.
Both have a few limitations such as file format conversions but its not a huge hurdle to overcome as other Apps can be used to convert file formats and so on.
I like the fact that - with the Hokusai App - one can perform audio scrubbing at different speeds whilst moving the playhead, what a great feature.

Hello:

Ferrite recording studio is a great app! I think it’s comparable to most of your Windows based desktop audio editing apps. I don’t think you would be lacking anything by using this app instead of apps developed for desktop and laptop computers.

I am very grateful that this app developer has chosen to make the app accessible and improve its accessibility on a regular basis. Plus, according to what I have read in the App Store, the developer is willing to answer questions.

Re: portable google assistant speaker?

HI,
Oh sorry didn't see the demand for portability.
If you need real power you can look at Soundboks
It is quite expensive though, but can definitely run a party.

hello all,
the other day, I came across a portable smart speaker, something that I
didn't realise was available.
the one I came across was an alexa version, but it did get me to wondering
if there are any out there that use the google assistant? as that is what
my
current main smart speaker is using.
looking for something that produces super good bass, and a good sound
output
as well, as my main smart speaker is the google home max.
