Arrggh! Nobody told me that I could learn making music like this. My life is wasted!
I find both brands sound unnatural. Electronic music guys love the KRK monitors more ( I think the low end sounds artificial ). I tried the previous version of the Mackie HR824 monitors years ago… I remember that I didn’t like the colored sound but I didn’t try the new upgraded ones. I use Adam monitors and I really like them. Monitor choice may differ from person to person… room treatment is more impoortant.
Very nice track! Congrats Jamie!
Congrats Leon! Cheers to many more successful years.
I like to see Graham’s posts about him and his male servant Jeremy.
There is no way to define strict lines in mixing. It depends on your goal and your ears. Some engineers like Bruce Sweiden hate compressors. Personally, I like to use compression a lot on percussive instruments, vocals and bass guitar. I set the compressor for the effect I need. Additionally I always mix the compressed channel with the non-compressed channel to get a powerful but alive sound.
You can use an EQ before the compressor to cut low frequencies. This way, you will prevent unnecessary triggering of the compressor. Then add an EQ after compressor to boost.
Try different approaches, do extreme settings to train your ears. It will take some time to get used to hearing compressing effect but you will get it
(This is my post from another thread ) I am not using AdRev but it’s necessary for us to protect our music. Envato should do something about this! It would be great if Envato had their own tracking system like AdRev. Maybe they can do something with Soundizer. If not… Envato should promote usage of AdRev and inform buyers well about how to adapt. If I register my existing tracks to AdRev now, it will be a bad surprise to buyers who bought my items a year ago. But we need to do it and we need help!
