VHS Video Drums WAV
Here we have a painstakingly emulated version of a four-track tape recorder from Aberrant DSP for Mac/PC, which will be a familiar concept for anyone with experience of recording guitars, drums and vocals back in the day. The hand-drawn GUI also helps take us back to a time when hours could be spent filling in song names and creating artwork to go with the listening experience.
VHS Video Drums WAV
Description : I imagine this being like a title sequence for an 80s VHS type logo or something. Not sure if you can use this in music, but maybe you can use it for a video or something. Let me know! :D
Any digital file, be it a video file, an image file, a sound file, or an executable, exists as a mathematical construct; a collection of numbers. I'll be the first to admit that the mathematics underpinning these files...
Like DTRS recorders, ADAT tape recorders use a video tape transport but running at a much faster speed (95.3 mm/sec which is circa 4 times the speed of VHS SP (PAL) format). Unfortunately most ADAT machines used a consumer tape transport that was not particularly rugged, often causing tape lacing problems which will damage tape. The later M20 machines used a much higher-quality transport.
The Alesis ADAT was the first affordable 8-track digital audio recorder which were in production from 1992 to 2003. They recorded on the same type of tape that VCRs did for video except they were a higher grade of VHS tapes called S-VHS. Some notable records were recorded on ADAT in the early 90s including Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill, Primus's Pork Soda, and Queensryche's, Promised Land. Each machine could record up to 8 tracks, and multiple machines could be synched together, with the typical system consisting of 3 machines for 24 tracks. The original ADAT "blackface" and ADAT XT were capable of recording at 16-bit. Recordings made using an ADAT XT20 or LX20 are capable of recording at 20-bit.
You will always see the ADAT logo on tapes designed specifically for ADAT machines. S-VHS video tapes could also be formatted and used in ADAT machines, so if you see any hand written notes on the label like "Master 16 bit / 48 KHz" or "Master 1 of 3" etc., you are likely looking at a tape recorded with an ADAT machine.
But now that anyone can record high-quality sounds, it's not such a big deal anymore. Sure, there's a place for clean, accurate recordings. But in many of today's records, you'll hear instances of lo-fi sound: fuzzy vocals, tinny drums, and hissy guitars.
Distortion is the addition of harmonics that did not exist in the original sound. Here's an obvious way to create distortion: drive a piece of recording gear at very high levels -- beyond what it can handle. For example, record drums on a cassette recorder with the meters pinning. Or yell into a "bullet" type harmonica mic so that the mic distorts. Some DAWs let you play samples at low bits rates (8 bits or fewer) to create some nasty digital grunge.
If your mixes are too sterile or studio-clean, you might want to record some leakage. Leakage (or bleed or spill) is the pickup of an instrument by another instrument's microphone. For example, if a guitar mic picks up the drums from across the room, that pickup of the drums is called leakage. Since the guitar mic picks up the drums at a distance, the leakage changes the recorded sound of the drums from tight to muddy.
The first consumer-oriented PCM format used consumer video tape formats (Beta and VHS) as the storage medium. These systems used the EIAJ digital format, which sampled at 44.056 kHz at 14 bits. The Sony PCM-F1 system debuted in 1981, and Sony from the start offered the option of 16-bit wordlength. Other systems were marketed by Akai, JVC, Nakamichi and others. Panasonic, via its Technics division, briefly sold a digital recorder that combined an EIAJ digital adapter with a VHS video transport, the SV-P100. These machines were marketed by consumer electronics companies to consumers, but they were very pricey compared to cassette or even reel-to-reel decks of the time. They did catch on with the more budget conscious professional recordists, and some boutique-label professional releases were recorded using these machines.

Occasionally, these imperfections add to the overall character of our music, but there are many scenarios where they also make producing a frustrating process. Unusual noises, clicks, and tones in samples restrict our creative options and often require some kind of sonic sacrifice to use. A drum loop with wondrous groove but lots of ambience might be too distracting at the forefront of a mix. If we tuck the drums further back to hide the noise, however, we lose their rhythmic power.
I took a stab at mashups myself, ripping acapellas from Youtube and mixing them with beats. But most of the vocals I really wanted were not available as acapellas, and if I did find an isolated version, it was marred with artifacts from shoddy editing. So when I first saw the promotional video for Music Rebalance, which allows you to easily extract individual stems from a song, as well as adjust their levels in the mix, I was overcome with excitement.
It pains me when I come across current blogs and videos that suggest removing mouth noises with a combination of volume automation and granular editing. These are very time-intensive and exhausting manual processes of yesteryear. Though they might work, for anyone spending their days editing vocals, you need tools with more firepower and finesse. This holds particularly true for vocals that are recorded in noisy home environments.
Usually, all the separate parts of the drum kit will have different amounts of compression added to each of them.Kick drums and snare drums will usually (not always) have compression added in some form, whereas you would rarely see cymbals compressed.
On the 'World Violation' backing tapes, one can hear drums on 'Clean' and a guitar on 'Personal Jesus' mixed very low. Were they there for back-up or to flesh out the live sound or have I been imagining things?
Excellent sounding snippets have previously been shared online, but these have been created using the available partial multi-tracks of the songs (from the Rock Band or Guitar Hero video games) and are not genuine backing tracks. These snippets are available to listen to at the bottom of this page for comparison purposes.
This page discusses how to capture analogue video for offline consumption (especially digitising old VHS tapes). For information about streaming live video (e.g. webcams), see the streaming page. For information about digital video (DVB), see TV-related software.
Analogue video technology was largely designed before the advent of computers, so accurately digitising a video is a difficult problem. For example, software often assumes a constant frame rate throughout a video, but analogue technologies can deliver different numbers of frames from second to second. This page will present a framework for recording video, which you can alter for your specific requirements.
Converting analogue input to a digital format is hard - VCRs overheat and damage tapes, computers use too much CPU and drop frames, disk drives fill up, etc. Creating a good digital video is also hard - not all software supports all formats, overscan and background hiss distract the viewer, videos need to be split into useful chunks, and so on. It's much easier to learn the process and produce a quality result if you tackle encoding in one step and transcoding in another.
When you create a video, you need to choose your video format (e.g. XviD or MPEG-2), audio format (e.g. WAV or MP3) and container format (e.g. AVI or MP4). There's constant work to improve the codecs that create audio/video and the muxers that create containers, and whole new formats are invented fairly regularly, so this page can't recommend any specific formats. For example, as of late 2015 MPEG-2 is the most widely supported by older DVD players, H.624 is becoming a de facto standard in modern web browsers, and people are waiting to see whether HEVC will be blocked by patent trolls. That's probably enough to decide which video codec is right for you in late 2015, but the facts will have changed even by early 2016.
You'll need to do some research to find the currently-recommended formats. Wikipedia's comparisons of audio, video and container formats are a good place to start. Here are some important things to look for:
Remember that you can use different formats in the encode and transcode stages. Speed and accuracy are most important when encoding, so you should use a modern, fast, low-loss format to create your initial accurate copy of the source video. But size and compatibility are most important for playback, so you should transcode to a format that produces a smaller or more compatible file. For example, as of late 2015 you might encode FLAC audio and x264 video into a Matroska file, then transcode MP3 audio and MPEG-2 video into an AVI file. You can examine the result and transcode again from the original if the file is too large or your grandmother's DVD player won't play it.
