Beautiful inspiration for a nice control room
Very really super welcome
Thanx! Let’s produce something
This thread is getting more and more interesting; nice mixes.
Here’s mine. It’s been a long time since I used logic plugs but I decided to do everything within logic, even a little bit of mastering, so if you like the mix you can download the session filehttp://www.edcmusic.it/tacotemp/test.mp3 http://www.edcmusic.it/tacotemp/mix.zip
Hey Gareth, we posted quite at the same time Very useful tips there!
Yep, I like the idea
Some quick tip: the room is better treated than not, especially if is small but positioning speaker in the right place can help a lot; without becoming too technical absolutely avoid median lines (tweeters must not be located on any of the tree imaginary planes cutting your room in half). But what is most important regarding monitoring is to consider your room as an acoustic instrument; it has its particular sound and you should become acquainted to it listening as much music as you can helping to understand it’s characteristics. Than try to emulate good mixes and use different sources and different location to listen to them (walk around and even go in another room).
In mix or better in the arrangement avoid frequency conflicts as johnny said; for instance a nice trick to glue bass and kick besides compression is to cut a freq on one of the two and boost the same freq on the other one; i.e. if you kick needs some 120Hz boost, add it a little and cut it from the bass.
Learn what basic EQ’s and compression’s parameters do; I mean Q for EQ and ratio, attack/release for compressor. To avoid phase problems is generally better to cut then boost to obtain the same result; if a sound is dull cut some mid instead of boosting bass and high. If you are novice compressors can be a little intimidating but initially use very low threshold and ratios from 4:1 to 10:1 to better understand the effect than raise threshold and/or ratio until the effect is subtle (this in normal use but you can be creative if needed). Generally speaking fast attacks flatten the sound while slow ones give more punch letting transients to pass untouched; faster releases are usually better but can create distortion especially in the low freq range so watch out If you like the compressor pumping (generally avoided) do it musically, I mean in time with the song; on drum busses is often used. Also if you need big sounding drums squash the bus a lot and add a little of it to the stereo channel to add room and presence.
Give to any instrument the right stereo position/ambient but always check phase issues in mono.
Hope it helps as a starting point bur it’s not an exact science thus feel free to experiment and leave the final judgement to your ears
The license agreement seems quite clear to me: supposing that an extended license has been acquired he can include the music in a bigger work (the video in this case) and sell as many copies he wants respecting these conditions:
-the music must always be part of the bigger work and cannot be extracted by anyone (seller or buyer)
-he can’t reuse it on a different video without acquiring another license
-moreover the buyers of his video can’t resell it in any way
This is what I understand reading the agreement..
coobek saidReally well done! I don’t understand lyrics as well but I like music very much.
@DamianN there are ukrainian lyrics, hah! Our vocalist, Marysia, has ukrainian roots. The project is a connection between modern jazzy stuff and traditional slavian songs based on old melodies and language.
