Tips For Better Home Recording

DSC Nov 02

Get Brilliant Output While Recording At Home

People want to know how to obtain optimum level of recording at home. Many of the artists record in studios, even though numerous of them carry out recording at home. However, they face many problems when recording at home.

We will give you some basic ideas to polish your recordings system and auditory at home. In addition, you will get tips how to obtain betterment in auditory atmosphere and recording equipment.

1. Recording surroundings:

headphones

  • Keep away from solid surface: wooden floors, walls made of concrete create reflection, and sound will bounce with these things and consequently an echo will produce in recording. Problem of echoing can be removed the use of Fabricated furniture, carpets and curtains.
  • Reflecting Shields: The Sound reflects through the back and sides of the mic. Overcome this problem by using reflecting shields.
  • ?Do it yourself? auditory action: Envelop the surface area as much as it is possible. You can use a chunky blanket or sheet hung right behind the singer.
  • Frequency concentration: Maximum concentration of the frequencies exists at Center of the room.
  • No echo place: Stay near the wall where the blanket is hanging and get distance from the opposite wall. Do not poke yourself in the center of the room. Clothes, curtains, and blanket soak up sounds, so you can get echo less recording.
  • No background noise: More the silence in the background betters the recording results. Therefore, do not switch on AC, TV or other electric appliances.

2. Headphones and Monitors:

Desktop Audio Upgrade

  • You can get the best playback while using monitors, and headphone are used to have good recording as well as they are used to monitoring directly.
  • Back headphones: If back headphones are not closed down the sound will bounce into the headphones, so make it sure, when recording at home shut the back headphones
  • Set your monitors: Place the best studio monitors in front of you in a shape that make a triangle having all its sides of the same length. (You can get more information about best studio monitors at here. )
  • Check the volume levels: Adjust volume levels of headphones properly so that you can get the best output when you are directly monitoring with the headphones.

3. Microphones Technique

Home Studio

  • Burst of air: Use pop filters to reduce the explosive pops of air so the recording does not corrupt and get smooth output. Put the vocals parallel to the microphone to eliminate explosion of air, as the microphone is very subtle part of recording.
  • Away from microphones: Do not stay close to the microphone; otherwise, short distance will produce the propinquity effect in recorded sound. Singer should take position not less than 6 inches from the microphone to get better results.
  • Selection of Pattern: Make a suitable choice of pattern or blueprint. Some patterns fit for solo singer recording his sound; some are good for a group or chorus of artists.
  • Side address: Some microphones are side address mic; their capsules face side ward instead of up. Use proper microphone for a better home recording.

To QAM or not to QAM

How to cope with the remaining noise after all possible precautions have been taken is today’s hot topic among telephony-over-cable vendors. In developing an upstream solution, vendors need to decide on a digital modulation technique and a multiplexing protocol.

Choosing a modulation scheme entails striking a balance between the most efficient delivery of the signal and immunity to noise. One of the most common modulation schemes is quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK), a version of phase shift keying that uses four phase states.

Another modulation technique is quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), which exploits the ability of different quadrature components of a single-frequency carrier wave to carry two input signals. QAM is available in several different versions, the most basic of which is 4-QAM.

QPSK and 4-QAM are comparable in terms of efficiency and noise tolerance. Both can operate well in systems with a fairly low carrier-to-noise ratio – which refers to the carrier’s strength in relation to the network’s noise – meaning each technique is well-suited for noisier environments.

QPSK and 4-QAM are also similar in terms of efficiency, measured in bits per hertz, or the amount of telephony traffic that a frequency can handle. Both schemes feature bits-per-hertz rates in the 1.5 to 2 range.

Raising the number of phase states in QAM modulation increases the bits-per-hertz rate, allowing a given frequency to carry more traffic. For example, ADC Telecommunications’ Homeworx system with 32-QAM has an efficiency level of 5 b/Hz.

The tradeoff is that a higher bits-per-hertz rate results in a higher carrier-to-noise ratio, meaning that the system is less able to tolerate noise.

“To run a higher-order modulation scheme, you have to address the quality of your plant,” says Hall. “The plant needs to be cleaned up a good bit more than it would need to be with QPSK [or lower-level QAM] because you’re talking about a much higher sensitivity to noise.”

While most of the industry agrees that the modulation scheme of the future will be a higher level of QAM, many have opted to begin offering QPSK or low-level QAM and migrate up as they proceed along the learning curve and as cable operators clean up their plant.

“Everyone started with a low-density scheme because no one knew what to expect,” Hall says. “Once manufacturers get a better understanding of the upstream path, modulation schemes will go up higher.”

One vendor is already putting that migration path into effect. Tellabs’ Cablespan 2300 product currently uses QPSK as its modulation scheme, although the company is also developing a version that uses 16-QAM. It will be available in the first quarter of 1998.

“Cable operators that have a plant that is conducive to supporting higher modulation schemes can use [the 16-QAM solution],” says Wayne Partington, group manager of product marketing for network access systems at Tellabs. “If the plant is not optimized to support the carrier-to-noise performance required for higher modulation schemes, they can get into the business using QPSK and then can migrate to a higher-order modulation capability.”

Cable operators can use other ways to increase the amount of traffic that the return path can carry. Dynamic bandwidth allocation, otherwise known as RF concentration, allows network operators to accept more subscribers than it has bandwidth to support. The key is to provide each subscriber with only the bandwidth that he or she needs at that minute, as opposed to assigning a certain amount of bandwidth to each subscriber whether or not it is being used.

A key enabler of dynamic bandwidth allocation is a new switch interface standard, GR303, which allows network operators to set up and tear down connections to the end user, says James Crowley, director of advanced planning in the access products division of DSC.

GR303 provides the ability to signal all the way to the network interface unit at the side of the house. This ensures that the subscriber gets a connection when he picks up the phone, and it allows network operators to put bandwidth in a “pool” to be used when needed.

The traditional TR-008 switch interface, on the other hand, is not well-suited for dynamic bandwidth allocation because it typically does not signal all the way down the network. This means that the switch could set up a call but fail to allocate the bandwidth all the way to the home.

While TR-008 is suitable for limited deployments, cable operators will run into problems with the interface when they begin to increase their penetration and capacity because bandwidth capacity must be dedicated to each customer, says Crowley. Cable telephony vendors are currently working with major switch manufacturers to incorporate the GR303 standard into their products, he says.

WEBWATCH

As an art form and a science, photography is changing rapidly in the computer age. Photography web sites encompass traditional photography and digital versions, fine art photos and vacation shots. Sites also offer tips on techniques and let you visit museums and exhibits. While image quality on the web might not rival the coffee-table book or the glossy photo magazine, the sites offer currency and interactivity, as online resources provide both the amateur or professional photographer with a place to share ideas.

PHOTO.NET

Street Photography

http://photo.net/photo/ index.html

Date Visited: 4/1/99

Developer/Provider: Philip Greenspun

For both web and photography novices, photo.net is a great place to start. The easily navigable site opens up a world of resources ranging from exhibit links to equipment reviews to a “how to” section. The techniques cover both traditional photographic styles and emerging digital technologies.

The Technique and How To (Traditional) section, halfway down the homepage, provides advice on travel, nature, sports, and portrait photography. The general-purpose Light link (under the subsection Taking Pictures) is a good place to start. The section below that on digital techniques provides less comprehensive advice.

Under Equipment Reviews, check What Camera Should I Buy? for Greenspun‘s conversational advice. Elsewhere in the section, each brand of camera gets extensive treatment, including varied comments from camera users. The site also reviews digital cameras as well as color printers and slide scanners.

The classified advertising section allows users to browse recent ads or view ads by category. A unique section, Neighbor to Neighbor, provides a searchable, browsable database of candid reports on merchants, web merchants, products, workshops, and more.

Photo.net stands out thanks to its streamlined design, which allows for fast downloading, and its content rich links. Greenspun (an MIT-trained computer scientist and avid photographer) scatters images about instead of loading them all on the first page. The site does lack some internal navigation, so users must rely heavily on the browser’s Back button.

Unlike many rival sites, photo.net is accessible to older Internet browsers (pre-3.0 versions) and is blissfully free of banner ads and other blinking distractions.

Bottom Line: With its clean, simple design, photo.net is a valuable resource for photo buffs looking for just about anything. Especially check advice on technique, equipment reviews, and buying strategies.

Date Visited: 4/2/99

Developer/Provider: George Eastman House

The prestigious Eastman House photography collection, based in Rochester, NY, contains over 400,000 images, a worthy fraction of which are on the web. Check the right side navigation bar or text links at page bottom for access to collections.

The Photography Collections includes daguerreotypes, 19th-century British and French photography on paper, American 19th-century photographs of the West, and important late-19th-and early-20th-century work. Click on the text link to each of the online collections for thumbnail images.

The site includes a Timeline of Photography from 1700 to the present. Occasional thumbnail images can be clicked to launch a pop-up window that takes a confusing pause before it loads.

The Motion Picture Collections at the museum include clips from the Lumiere Brothers, Eadweard Muybridge motion studies, and some of the toy precursors to motion pictures. These take a while to download.

While the Eastman House boasts one of the world’s largest collections of photographic equipment, the site only describes that collection. The Education & Research link provides telnet access to Eastman’s database of holdings, including biographies and bibliographies.

The quantity of images slows down-loading, but Eastman House also takes advantage of the web’s multimedia capacity by including audio and video clips.

Bottom Line: While only part of the collection is on the web, Eastman House also offers good information on photographic history and telnet access to a hoard of research.

Developer/Provider: Eastman Kodak Company

Most notable on the Kodak site is the vast amount of information that helps amateurs take better pictures. Under Taking Great Pictures, the Guide to Better Pictures provides a complete introduction to 35mm photography.

Included in the Guide are well-illustrated hints for selecting film and lenses, guides to lighting and using flash, taking close-ups, and composition tips. Naturally, the products mentioned come from Kodak, but the concepts can be easily applied to other products.

The Top 10 Techniques is a condensed list for amateur photographers on getting better results using simple techniques. Another link from Taking Great Pictures, Problem Picture Remedies, provides reasons for and solutions to common problems.

Further down the Taking Great Pictures page are three basic online tutorials: Language of Light, Beginning Composition, and Teaching Basic Darkroom Techniques. The latter link, while meant for a person teaching a class, could easily be followed by a novice. The tutorial does an excellent job addressing chemical safety issues.

The Digital Cameras and Technology link takes users to the Digital Learning Center, which includes pages on all aspects of digital photography: online “courses” complete with review questions, competency tests, and immediate feedback.

With background in black and text in Kodak Gold, the site may be a nightmare to print. Remedy this by setting browser preferences to black text and a white background.

Though the company logo is always close at hand and further information on products just a click away, the site is not obnoxiously promotional.

Bottom Line: Kodak is a good first stop for anyone seeking solid picture-taking tips and tutorials, no matter what brand of film they use. Photo.net provides broader scope, however.

GUIDE TO BUY YOUR OWN DOWN COMFORTER

Any luxurious bedroom design needs a good down comforter to compliment its look. In addition, you will get the all-over warmth and comfortable feeling that down comforter provides form any other cover or common quilts. Therefore, many people have opted to down comforter as an irreplaceable addition for their beds. But how can you choose the best down comforter from a wide range of down comforter sets available on the market? That is exactly why we have written this article, to make the job of choosing your own comforter not a daunting and overwhelming task like it used to. Follow the guide below, and we are sure you will have all the knowledge needed to make your own decision in no time.

There are five steps in total:

  • Look for information online about the percentage of down in a comforter

It is of utmost important for you to know the percentage of down in the comforter listed in your to-buy list because it has a direct effect on the warmth, the comfortable feeling and especially the durability of the product you will receive in the future. As you look online, there are some terms and phrases that you need to know in order to understand what type of products available to you. First of all, if a comforter is labeled as “all down” or “100 percent down”, you can understand that it is made of pure down. Second, if the product you like do not have this label, it is possible that there is something else in the comforter other than down (like plain feather for example). Moreover, when the product is labeled as “goose down”, there are at least 90 percent of real feathers because it is legally required to be so. Finally, when you see the comforter has the label of only one word “down”, then the amount of down in comforter can be very small and not up to your expectation. In general, it is advisable to research online first before making purchase in order to buy the right comforter that is suitable for your purpose and preference.

  • Make a decision about the weight of the comforter that you want to buy

As many as the number of labels available for down comforter, the weight of it can be varied as well, adding more confusion to the first time consumer. To understand what type of weight you should choose for your comforter, you must understand how comforters tend to be compared with each other. Different comforters are compared by using their fill power. To put it in a nutshell, fill power can be understood simply as how much space one ounce of down taking up in a comforter. Therefore, the higher the fill power is, the warmer the comforter will be. In other word, the higher rating products are warmer and more comfortable than ones that have lower rating. By using this fill power rating; comforter can easily be put into different categories. The most common and used categories are: light, medium and heavy. In most parts of the word, medium down comforter is the most suitable choice. However, if you live in a place that is colder than other places over the world, you should consider choosing a heavy down comforter. On the other hand, for people who lived in warmer places, light down comforter might just be what you are looking for.

  • The thread count for your comforter should be chosen

Another term you need to know when buy your own down comforter is “thread count”. To put it as simple as possible, thread count is the density of threads sewn into the comforter per square inch. In order to achieve the luxurious look for the comforter, a high thread count is needed. In addition, with a high thread count, the breathability of the comforter will also increase, making the surface smoother in turn. However, the thread count might not be the most important factor for users who intend to use cover because the cover will hide the surface of the comforter while providing more choices in term of themes and styles.

  • Information of baffle should be checked

There are many ways of separating the pockets of down in a comforter, baffle is one of them. To allow the down to expand and loft, people use baffle to separate the pockets of down. Moreover, by using baffles, people can prevent the down form clutching in a certain place and divide the down equally throughout the comforter. As a result, the warmth and comfort cover all part of the comforter and enhance the experience of the user. You can see many sewn separations in less expensive down comforter in order to keep the down in place.

  • If you suffer from allergies, you can opt to using alternative comforter

It is very difficult to distinguish real, authentic down comforter from the alternative one. Therefore, if you suffer from allergies with down, it is advisable to consider using alternative comforters because they are all hypo-allergenic. In addition, like authentic down comforter, they can provide you with the same feeling of warmth and comfort while charging you for a lower price. To select an alternative comforter, you can apply the same steps as mentioned above: thread count, fill power…Then you can cover the comforter with a duvet cover to make it looks more stylish and luxurious.

How to choose the best sleeper sofa for your house?

In the modern life, requirement for a sofa in the living room is essential. However for some small room owner can equip his/herself with some kinds of sleeper sofa which can share the function of the mobile bed for the owner in the house. Now, the sleeper sofa can have a wide range of types and colors for the customers to choose, however, how to identify the quality of the sofa is really a big trouble.

The following will introduce in comprehensive way information about the structure, process of manufacturing as well as the quality of each material to make a sleeper sofa.

The most important thing you should know about the sleeper sofa during the process of manufacturing is the frame of the sleeper sofa. Normally, cheap sleeper sofa is produced with low quality wood and of course the time for using can not be long. If you pay attention to these kinds of products, you can find that they often have only 1 year of using and there will be several troubles with the frame such as the frame will be shrink, the whole performance will be distort and even in the worst case the frame can be broken.

Normally low, medium or high quality products having the pressure part made from different kinds of wood so the weight will be different. The back of the sleeper sofa can be made of plywood or carton. Because this part is not the important one so they can be used from 3 to 5 years and there will be no problem of breaking the frame, shrinking or being distorted.

After manufacturing and forming the frame, the sleeper sofa will be inserted with the spring which can create the soft feeling when people sit or lie in. For other cheap ones, manufacturers can not insert any spring to reduce the cost.

Suck and spring of the sleeper sofa: Modern sofa is covered with suck and under the seat there will be the spring. The suck which is commonly used is the D40 which have high quality and can become the buffer for seating and for lying against for the sleeper sofa. Almost all the sleeper sofa which is inserted the spring can help to prevent the shrink of the sleeper sofa for long time of using and at the same time can make the people feel more comfortable. So when you buy a sleeper sofa you have to ask about the inside structure of the sleeper sofa. If the sleeper sofa does not insert with the spring you can buy some one which can have thin suck.

The covering material of the sleeper sofa: this is the most important thing to decide the performance and beauty of the sleeper sofa. Depending on the price of the sleeper sofa, the surface can be covered by real leather, fake leather or fabric. Normally, the cheap sleeper sofa can be mixed between real and fake leather and the problem is that during time the fake leather can be broken through time of using so you have to take this problem into consideration.

Besides, you can choose the sleeper sofa which can be covered by a thicker fabric such as denim so it can provide you some advantages such as open, airy, having a lot of vignette and color to choose and easy to match the color with different furniture in the house.

To identify the durability and quality of the sleeper sofa, they can rely on the sewing line in the sofa. If the sewing line is straight, equally and has few mistakes so the sleeper sofa is considered as careful manufacturing and by good workers. The nice sewing lines can make the sleeper sofa more beautiful and luxurious.

In general, in order to identify the high quality sleeper sofa you have to consider all the mentioned above factors. There are good advices for you when you have to choose the sleeper sofa for your living room. You can ask someone who has already used the sleeper sofa so you can know about some other caution things for using the sleeper sofa.

For more information and in order to have the best sleeper sofa, you can visit sleeprsofacenter.com.

Ways to choose the microwave for the kitchen

When you prepare to buy for your family a micro wave you may have in mind some questions for example How is the price of the ordinary micro wave? Which brand will provide the best micro wave? Which kinds of micro wave will save the electricity the most? How are the functions of a micro wave? Which capacity of the micro wave is suitable for your family? And so on. The following paragraph will help to answer your above questions as well as making you clearer about the function and feature of the ordinary micro wave.

Functions of the micro wave

The main function of the micro wave is to make the food warm again and defrost the frozen food. It can not burn and cook the surface of the food to make it turn to the yellow color. In order to make food cooked, you have to use the oven or other special cooking devices.

However, nowadays, there are some micro waves which can be able to grill the food, meaning the grilling function has been added to the feature and capacity of the micro wave. Actually, the grill mode is just additional function so it can not compared with the real oven. It is just help you in case you need to grill some normal food. If you are professional cook and you cook in the restaurant you have to choose typical cooking devices for each types of cooking but for home cooking you can use the multifunctional micro wave like this because it will provide you the convenience but you have to read the instruction carefully before using.

When choosing the micro wave, people often pay attention to the supplementary features but quite important such as remote control (button, control mode, …) or safe locking (which is very important for family with children). The biggest disadvantage of the micro wave is to use the device to make food warm, so you are not allowed to use any kinds of metal devices to warm the food.

If you use the glass devices to put into the micro wave you have to use the typical and special glass device for the micro wave. You should not use the crystal devices for the micro wave, especially crystal with high level of lead. When you use the plastic and porcelain devices for the micro wave you have to use the heat-resistant devices because some porcelain holder containing lead will cause harm to the health. In general, it is the best if you use the devices made of heat-resistant glass.

To maximize the function of the micro wave, you should use it properly and clean it after using. The food when put into the micro wave must be sure that they will not be spilt over. Because of the feature of the micro wave is that the heat will not be equally circulated in the micro wave so all the viruses can not be killed.

How to choose the micro wave to save electricity

– You have to choose the right capacity micro wave for your requirement. You use less or over the capacity of the micro wave in both cases it will waste the electricity. If you use the right cooking mode you can save the electricity also.

– You should not turn on the micro wave in the air conditioner room, you should not put the micro wave near other electric devices to avoid the case that the heat of the micro wave can affect to them.

– You have to use the allowed material of devices to put in the micro wave. You are not allowed to use the metal devices because it absorbs the heat very quickly which lengthen the time to make the food warm and at the same time can cause some kinds of electricity explosion.

– Always have water or wet food to make sure that the magnetron tube in the micro wave can be kept safely. When you want to warm the dry food, you can put a cut of water together.

Which kind of micro wave is suitable for the family from 4 to 5 people?

In the market, there any many popular micro waves such as one with 17 liter, 20 liter, 23 liter and 28 liter with the capacity of 600-1.200W. If your family has from 4 to 5 people, you have to choose the micro wave from 20 to 23 liter, with the capacity of around 800 to 1.000 W. It is suitable for your family. If you have to do professional cooking or your family has more than 5 people you should buy the bigger one and in contrast if you have few people, the small one of 17 liter is the best choice.

The cover of the micro wave is often made of inox (stainless steel) or steel with the cover of heating paint with color. These micro waves have 2 types of operation control: electric and mechanic. Electronic micro wave normally has the surface of the watch showing the number and will automatically control the cooking programs. While the mechanic micro wave uses the button to press or rolling button to adjust the capacity and time. The electronic micro wave is more complicated to use but more functional than the mechanic one. Therefore, electronic micro wave has been more preferred by household currently.

Ways to use the oven effectively

If your kitchen is having an oven, you should know how to use this device effectively to make sure that you can have wonderful grilled food. Besides, you can preserve this cooking device for a long time and save electricity also.

  1. You have to put the oven firmly in the flat and heat-resistant ground. When you are not use, you have to unplug.
  2. You have to prepare the food you would like to grill in a separating holder. Then you adjust the temperature, time and capacity for the food. Plug the oven to make it hotter. Use the chopstick to put the food into the oven under the set temperature.
  3. Pour into the holder inside the oven a little oil to make sure that the food will not closely stick to the holder.
  4. Each time you only need to grill one holder to make sure that the food will have enough space to spread out.
  5. During the grill, you can see the food through the glass door. If you put much food in the holder, you have to turn the side of the food several time during the grill. You have to open the oven door leaf when doing this, but after that you have to close it tightly.
  6. Press all buttons off, unplug and carefully take the food holder out.
  7. When you put food into the oven, you should not use the food near the heat tube so food can not be burnt.
  8. When finishing the grilling, make sure that all the button is off and you unplug the oven.

Cautions:

  1. Before plugging the oven, you have to make sure that the capacity is in line with the instruction to use the oven and the electricity line is well connected to the socket. All other parts and things around the oven must be dry to avoid the power shock.
  2. During the grilling, there will be heat around the oven, you are not allowed to touch your hand in the cover or open the door leaf of the oven so often. Use right device to take the food out of the oven.
  3. Do not let water to be inside the oven which can break the oven or cause power explosion.
  4. During the time the oven is working, there will be sound inside. It is natural electricity heating circumstance.
  5. You are allowed to move the oven after it is turn off and leave to cool after several hours.

Ways to clean the micro wave

If the micro wave is frequently used so it will be stick with the smell of the food and oily dirt. Therefore, a micro wave needs to be cleaned so often to ensure the safety for cooking and at the same time can increase the time of using for the micro wave. Following the below steps for best cleaning of the micro wave.

Step 1: Unplug the micro wave, take out the holding plate

If the micro wave have the rolling plate you can take it out, clean it with warm water and soap. With the food stick inside the micro wave you can scrub them with the warm water and baking powder. You have to clean the rolling plate very carefully and softly because it will be very slippery in soap.

Step 2: Create the detergent liquid for the micro wave

Use a bowl of water, the squeeze in half of a lemon or orange. If you do not have a lemon you can use half cup of vinegar instead. This liquid is very helpful in removing food dirt sticking inside the micro wave as well as providing the fresh lemon flavor.

Step 3: Boil detergent liquid in the micro wave

Put a bowl of above liquid into the micro wave, close the door leaf and turn the micro wave on when the liquid boils. Boil it for 1 – 2 minutes until you see the water steam inside then you turn the micro wave off. Leave it for 15 minutes to let the water steam to deodorize the smell and dirt.
