Latest work

say hello to this shiny new guitar I got that I never need to tune.

hello! I am shiny!

Topic lists just above each filename

This article has three main sections: MUSIC FIRST, which you can download and have fun with the music track I recorded; RHETORIC, about a specific issue that I felt needed addressed about wildlife versus domestic life; COMEDY, which you can get a laugh or observation from if that works for you; and then at the way bottom if you want to read or to skip it there is a section called TECHNICAL STUFF YOU CAN SKIP.

On with the sounds…

MUSIC FIRST

This posting will illustrate what I consider to be Demo Quality, or a rough mix demonstration, without the fine-tuning that mastering calls for. You may read more about Demo Quality at the footnotes of this page, or skip it.

Short description of these works:

Two bass guitar tracks were recorded by Jeremy M. Dinovo earlier today to a looper pedal, or a computer or machine that receives an input signal and then repeats it over and over, so that the user, usually a musician, may add more signals overtop of the already recorded signal, oftentimes called overdubbing, or laying one music or audio track overtop of another.

All of the above were performed by recording artist, mix engineer, audio recordist, Jeremy M. Dinovo

RHETORIC

Don’t let them bite. What is the expected reaction to someone that got the itches and the unexpected roommates? I don’t know, but I talk about the creatures of the night that I always seem to encounter or hear about when I watch movie Bram Stoker’s Dracula — I really should get rid of that vex of a movie:

TECHNICAL STUFF YOU CAN SKIP

If you are interested in audio mastering before and after, here is the original file. It is very un-pleasant to the ears, with no mastering done, so you see the what I had to work with:

UNEDITED_bass_guitarScribblejmd10032016_WAV44100-16bit.wav

4.88 MB, Total Run Time: 00:28 s. Format, WAV.

** ^ by the way, the original did not have that nice little fade – in, so was instantly pounding as soon as you pressed play, without the fade – in that I added.

If you are curious, I included the definition of CD Audio format at the bottom of this posting, as well as improvements that were needed on this file.

Problems not corrected in this original:

  1. RFI (radio frequency interference, or the hissing)
  2. way too dynamic bass frequencies (sounds that are too loud to the ears, that can make you feel sick to your stomach if you heard for too long)
  3. peaking high frequencies (that really crunching scratching sound when the bass guitar’s highs are picked harder)
  4. What you did not hear that was a problem, the clipping from audio that went over line level, that not only made the recording sound distorted and unintelligible, but also Un-SAFE to listen to for a. your ears, and b. to your speakers or headphones. Again I produce for a. Safety, and b. Intelligibility
  5. way too dynamic mid frequencies (around 1kHz range or the in the middle of the range of the human voice)
  6. I am sure there is another problem, but I do not have the money to fix that : – ) but I assure you, both the conflict and the resolution exist for the price.

Footnotes:

Demo Quality according to Jeremy M. Dinovo

Demo quality is not as fine-tuned as Album Quality, which can include sweetening more subtly harsh frequencies like scratchiness or quirky background sounds that can be polished down more, adding smaller nuances like reverb in areas, more detailed compilations, and an overall furthered personalization of the audio track or tracks. A Demo Quality, to me, does not include those extra ‘aesthetic’, or nice-to-have personalizations, but instead just contains the essential ‘ethical’, or need-to-have elements of 1. Safety, and 2. Intelligibility, so that the track is safe to listen to, and then with a sharpened clarity can clearly set a better expectation for accomplishments later on in an album quality recording, live performance, or other feature type of work.

I borrowed media or resources from this web site:

CD Audio format

Bit rate

The audio bit rate for a Red Book audio CD is 1,411,200 bits per second or 176,400 bytes per second; 2 channels × 44,100 samples per second per channel × 16 bits per sample. Audio data coming in from a CD is contained in sectors, each sector being 2,352 bytes, and with 75 sectors containing 1 second of audio. For comparison, the bit rate of a “1×” CD-ROM is defined as 2,048 bytes per sector × 75 sectors per second = 153,600 bytes per second. The remaining 304 bytes in a sector are used for additional data error correction.”

And if you are still wondering what it is I do among the slough of things that any one of us could possibly also do just the same as I, the answer is simple, I show up. That is exactly what I do. I show up. Did you miss that? I show up. How you choose to correspond to this is entirely your choice. Insert smiley face here : – )

Questions? Comments? Anything? I am sure that to finally hear my voice on a big long recording would have to spark up something, so Contact me:

Contact Jeremy M. Dinovo, A.K.A. the Mr. Variety

If there is anything

you think I can do to help, please let me know, OK? I am counting on you to tell me these things, while I am still not yet a mind reader.

Now accepting: ** the continuation of adequately and reasonably more ** good company, long-term, and continuing to accept beverages and things to eat in exchange for anything reasonable or useful that I can continue to offer. It’s a long story. That is the short version.

If you walk away from this post to remember anything, then just remember:

once you do, then stay for dinner. Always stay for dinner. ; – )
