Hey all - I don\'t usually post \"reviews\"...or really...much of anything!
But I wanted to let everyone know that I just got my copy of DIVA in the mail (i haven\'t installed the updates, because I\'m lazy) and I\'m really digging it so far.
I haven\'t had a chance to really dive into it, but I like how \"textural\" it seems to be...I think that it is going to fit into my style of music very nicely. It has a nice blend.
Couple of questions for Francis:
How far away are the singers from the mic in the far mic\'ed samples? What space did you record in?
I\'m sure these questions have probably been answered before, so forgive me.
I\'ll try to get a demo up and running soon, so people can hear what I dinker around with.
The far mics are set 6 feet back. Some may say that is not far enough away but this is not a blasting horn section... it\'s two women singing no louder than mezzo forte in most cases.
The space is Saint Anthony\'s Church in Wilmington DE. Built 1847
There is an impulse file provided.
Tip of the day ... if you track Diva to audio ... add a stereo spread plug in ... make your spread more and more narrow ... you will hear the Mide-Side take effect even more ... what this means is.... more of the church.
I did not make Diva too ambient out of the box ... I want the user to have the control.
The far mics are an M-S mix.
This tip was apart of update 2.
