Roelant band

I've been a longtime member though I don't frequent the forums as much as I used to. I've finally got a band that I'm proud of and figured I'd plug it a bit. I grew up listening to Petra so the influence permeates the music we do I think. We just put out a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejj6n...

Re: A New Hope

And I was thinking that this would be a very interesting thread about Star Wars. A New Hope! Oh well... 8) Christie seems like a smart politician. He's going to have to balance the weakness of the current group of Republican candidates/likely candidates (easier for him to win the nomination) with t...

Re: A New Hope

I think its rather naive even some of the arguments put forth here.

"Conservatives don't hate, liberals do"

"Yes they do, liberals are rational, conservatives are hate-filled!"

Dude, BOTH sides do it.

Re: BTTR Must Be Selling Well

I hope it is selling well, because it's now appearing on pirate networks. Someone signed up with links to download the album, this is not tolerated on the zone this hurts Petra, and is illegal. Oh come on Daniel. It is ok for poor Christians to steal music. It is only wrong for the rich to steal. B...

Re: Digital Downloads or The CD

According to the Nyquist principle 96 khz can represent frequencies up to 48k...unless elephants become the principle listeners, this isn't really necessary. Plus file sizes are much larger at that high resolution. Only a triangle wave can be accurately represented at the nyquist frequency. So 44.1...

Re: Digital Downloads or The CD

This is where music needs to go: https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=catalogdetail&valbum_code=HD00602527486345 Cost doesn't justify the reward to me. 96/24bit audio is nice, but the difference is slim.

Re: Is Louie restrained?

That is the practice with a lot of bands in the music industry. One thing that bugs me about Southern Gospel is that Quartets can call their producer, book the studio all from the road and when they get back from the tour all the music is produced and they just go in and record the vocals according...

I agree. That was my first impression. Maybe the final version will be more spruced up.
Isn’t it cool that we’re even talking about Louie recording on a Petra album?
Isn't it sad that we've been afforded so few opportunities to do so?

Re: Digital Downloads or The CD

All I am saying is technically if I create a MP3 24bit @ 48Khz sample rate/ 320KB 70+MB audio file from the original source, 0.01 minimal compression who wins on audio quality ? MP3 does, and obviously WAV is better always. What original source are you referring to? If its mixed ITB, it'll be bounc...

Re: Digital Downloads or The CD

Since when was digital downloading better than the CD? CDs are as good as its gonna get, unless they're releasing something on vinyl.

Re: Other Samples Are Up

I think there is still some misconception as to just what mastering is. Mastering is listening to the songs, sequencing them so that they flow musically, balancing lyrical content, dynamics, EQ, etc. In some cases it is crisis management. In some cases it means correction and restoration. But for t...

Re: Other Samples Are Up

Out of the samples I've heard I think Bema Seat and Clean are very heavy and awesome; I'm not really liking Rose Colored it seems to have lost its organic feel on the first verse, The Chorus seems somewhat better, but I think it will have to grow on me. Agree on Clean and Bema Seat, but I think I d...

Re: 4 Classic Petra Samples.

Man, I like the tunes. This is going to be good. It would be better with a little less compression though. Those samples were pretty smashed. I noticed the same thing, but this is a premastered version and good mix engineers dont send ME stuff thats already compressed like this. I think they booste...
