MULAB multi-track software

I've downloaded this free software to check it out. It seems quite extensive for FREE SOFTWARE. I mean it's not going to beat out SONAR, or CUBASE, but it's not too shabby. The free version is limited to 8 tracks, but you can do a lot with 8 tracks. I have been considering creating some video tutorials to put up for this, to help get beginners going. There is something to be said for having a common software too. I don't intend to stop using sonar, but I could see using this as a secondary software that we all have in common. One cool thing about it is that it has a Mac version. So we'd be directly interfaced with Mac people? I mean for free you can't really go wrong. Since I've downloaded it, and poked around with the docs, I've figured out how to do pretty much everything we'd need it for here. Any thoughts?

Does it take up a lot of space ?

I've begun creating flash tutorials for those of you who need it for using MULAB. This particulat tutorial shows you how to import a wav file, and cut dead air off of it. It also shows you how to asign the audio to a different slider, and meter. Have your sound turned low when you open this.

Ok I've posted the 2nd installment of my MULAB flash tutorials. This one teaches you how to setup and record audio with your microphone.

You're more than welcome. Anything I can do to help. We're looking forward to hearing your great singing on some F-Jam productions. Once people realize you are available you'll have to fight them off for offering up their music to have you sing on.

Wonder if these tutorials are helping Jill? She can use MULAB on a Mac. It's a cool idea that the different platforms have the same software... So does it work like I said it should Jill?


More tutorials on the way. and now you are subscribed and will know about them here on this topic...

Let us know how it works for both of yous (Jill, and Angel). I did see something about some Mac snafus, so I'd be interested to know how it goes Jill.

Keeper Im up to par with the tutorials, but I am still having an issue with audio. When I push play I cannot hear the music through MULAB. The settings are where you showed me to put them. Any other ides?

Keeper said...

Well yes I have ideas Angel. Might be easier to speak on the phone. I do indeed have ideas. Got my number?

Keeper said...

See if you have sound on your Line 6 interface. Does it have a headphone jack on it? Try plugging your headphones into the Line 6 and see if you hear anything. The Line 6 probably has a headphone volume knob on it. Make sure that is turned u.

On MULAB look under the "Edit" menu on the upper left. Under Edit, find Audio setup, and make sure the audio output is set right. if you are not sure which to use, trial and error could do it. There are probably only a few choices, so when you have the right one, it'll play.

Keeper I dont have your number. Do you still have mine? You can call if you like.

Angel said...

BINGO!!! Keeper your a genius!

I haven't downloaded it yet as I'm very short of space, will have to move some files around, maybe at weekend.

Keeper said...

I know how much you are guarded about the files that Nic left you. This program doesn't take up much room itself Jill, but it works in wav format, which is going to require a good amount of hard drive space. A systematic backup onto DVD is probably a good idea...

Maybe once you have installed it and see it operate it'll be incentive to do that.
