What are some techniques that can be used to put together a virtual orchestra?
By Mattias Westlund
Where are the first violins normally panned?
In orchestral setting, on stage or in the studio, the instruments of the orchestra have their specific place. For example, first violins are more to the left, while cellos are more to the right. Depending on the type of the orchestra, some things may vary, but figure 5.10 shows a general way we pan the orchestra.
Where do you pan a violin?
Panning all of the violins to the left takes the listener’s attention off of the main ingredients, such as a center-panned vocalist or solo instrument because they also often reside in the same range. Instead, pan your string bass parts to the middle to center the mix’s lower end.
How do you pan instruments in a mix?
So here are the rules of pan (so you know what to break, if you want)
- Always pan the lead vocal center.
- Always pan the bass center.
- Balance the channels equally.
- If you have two similar-sounding instruments, pan one left and the other right.
- A stereo pair of microphones should be panned hard left and hard right.
How do you do a virtual performance?
Here are my tips for creating a virtual choir performance with your own students:
- Start with a single, short performance.
- Prep your guide track.
- Plan your performance.
- Set clear recordings guidelines for your students.
- Edit and mix your audio and video separately.
- Plan your layout.
- Post the performance.
What app is used for virtual choir?
About the app ChorusClass is virtual choir app that makes it easy for chorus members to practice at home, at school, at work or anywhere, with a smartphone, tablet or computer. By practicing between rehearsals, you can spend more time singing together during rehearsal.
What is the loudest section in the orchestra?
Loudest Instrument in the Orchestra In a performance, the trumpet ranges between 80 and 110 decibels. The trombone, however, peaks at around 115 decibels. Surprisingly, the clarinet is much the same, peaking at about 114 decibels.
What is the biggest section in the orchestra?
The string section is the largest in the orchestra. It is comprised of instruments that derive their musical sound from the vibration of tuned strings. The orchestra contains two large groups of violins, plus groups of the violin’s larger, lower-pitched relatives: the viola, the cello, and the double bass.
Which string instrument is the largest and lowest in pitch?
Double Bass : Here is the big one. The double bass is the biggest and lowest pitched instrument in the string family.
How do you pan classical music?
Compared to getting the reverb right, panning is quite straightforward. You move the pan knob (or slider) left and the sound moves to the left, you move it right and the sound moves right. If you leave it sitting in the middle the sound will remain centered, equally loud in both speakers.
Should I pan drums?
Do you struggle to get your drums to sound nicely wide and open? Honestly, the difference between your drums in mono and stereo is incredible. Good panning is going to make all the difference and will make listening to your drums feel like you’re actually there in the room.
Should I pan vocals?
The best way to give your mix a solid core is to keep lower frequency sounds in the center. That means kicks, basses and anything else below the 120hz range. If your track has lead vocals pan them center as well. But as a general rule lead vocals should always be panned center.
Should you hard pan instruments?
Panning is the spread of a monaural signal in a stereo or multi-channel sound field – it is critical to the make up of the stereo image. Panning several instruments hard left and right can be tempting to create a wide stereo sound which can produce an excellent sonic sound, but generally should be avoided.
Where should vocals sit in a mix?
Tip #1 – Here’s a top notch trick to get your vocals to sit on top of the mix nicely. Send everything but the vocals to their own aux, and apply a very subtle compressor (only a few dB’s reduction). Side chain the lead vocals to this compressor. This will dip the track by a 2 or 3 dB’s every time the vocals come in.
