Mix mastering of acoustic guitar + vocal songs recorded only with LINE 6 Sonic Port VX

アコースティックギター 録音スタジオ 配信 ノイズ ミックスマスタリング DAW 音質 リマスター

It is relatively easy to show a video performance on YouTube for a simple guitar + vocal song. However, there are a certain number of people who have a bottleneck in terms of recording and sound quality when distributing as a musical piece by subscription.

Electric musicians who use up their DAWs can expect a cool enough sound just by using the standard software sound source. However, recording acoustic instruments such as live guitars is very difficult. The simpler the performance, the more delicate recording is required, and in order to deliver with cool sound, a certain environment and some recording experience are required.

Not easy condenser microphone + DAW recording

As PCs and tablets have become cheaper, DAWs have become more widespread, and the number of condenser microphones that were once difficult to reach has increased.

However, it is not easy to learn how to operate the DAW itself and record at home where it is difficult to take measures against noise, and many people find it troublesome.

LINE6 Sonic Port VX + Acoustic Guitar

SONIC PORT VX (Sonic Port VX) is mainly recorded for the interface that has been developed for iPAD. With a built-in condenser microphone, it occupies half of the main body, and high-quality recording is possible even for acoustic guitars and songs that cannot be line-input.

The other day, I improved the sound quality of my work using this equipment. It is a cover song by acoustic guitar + vocals. The vocal level setting seemed to be unsatisfactory, and there was a slight clip (sound cracking) at the peaks of various places.

As for the guitar, it was recorded with almost perfect sound quality, no negative elements were found, and I was able to immediately start making sounds according to the music. Vocals have some problems, and I couldn't identify the cause such as noise in the whole volume besides the clip.

However, it was surprising that there was always an electrical noise called hum noise mixed in with this kind of casual style recording.

Don't you think it's quite difficult to make vocals professional?

Since SONIC PORT VX is mainly aimed at acoustic guitars, you can easily create cool sounds with the included plug-ins. However, if you record a song with it, it is difficult to finish it like a professional.

Especially for multi-track songs that are well-crafted on a DAW, if you want to create a professional-level sound source with songs and guitar, the reality is that if the sound quality of each is not very good, it will not be a good idea.

This "Hybrid Sound Reform" carefully cleans such recording materials. Polish the "sound" that you want to be a little cooler. From simple noise removal to full-scale mixing and mastering, we also offer affordable prices. It is a very kind service that you can actually work with the sound source, listen to the sound quality improvement effect, and then make a payment.

For this cover work recorded by SONIC PORT VX, we asked for MIX & mastering as a result of improving the sound quality of the original material.

Customer Feedback & Improvement Examples

I am very satisfied. It was as if we had the illusion that our playing skills had improved. I felt good. (singer)

First of all, I'm really glad I asked. Until now, it was a sound source that was not powerful no matter how loud you listened to it, but it feels good to listen to. Thank you for doing this much work at a reasonable price.
(Active copy band)

Has received a very polite of your corresponding time of this, we are very thank. I learned a lot, and I think it is very significant that not only ourselves but also specialists take care of us. For us amateurs, a service like yours that can pursue even a little good sound is very encouraging. Also, I would be happy if there is an opportunity to ask again (while paying attention to the MAX recording volume).

(Guitar & Vo Duo)

I listened carefully to the file I received. Thank you very much for your polite response to your selfish request. I'm still overwhelmed by the surprisingly low price and the difference from the quality of my work. ( mivjm )

Sound cracking trouble recorded in a three-point hanging microphone for brass band

There was a request to improve a sound source with "sound cracking trouble". "Sound cracking" that was almost impossible to repair 10 years ago. Since the digital recording era, there have been many problems during recording.


An example of repairing an unnatural limiter (breathing phenomenon) that occurs in audio when recording a video

The digital limiter operates without being able to suppress the peak volume. An unnatural breathing phenomenon occurs and the voice becomes very unpleasant.


We provided "Sound Reform" to underground idol Chiroru Hoshino. This site was originally started as a service to improve the cheapness of sound quality when recording live house performances.


Removes mobile phone radio noise mixed in band performance (with improvement sample)

When recording a performance with a linear PCM recorder, there seems to be a case where the recorded data gets quite terrible noise if the iPhone is nearby. It is not the noise of the environmental sound of the audience seats picked up by the so-called microphone, but the very strong noise that destroys the audio data itself.

We have worked to reduce unpleasant noise that interferes with the recorded performance.
