Yamaha HS-5M. Often thought about moving to the 8 inch model but I know these well so why change.

Jeremy and I always used a mastering chain…....oops wrong web forum. He took ours with him.

I am fairly certain Graham has leather and metal in his mastering chain…

Graham, I warned you what would happen when you went off your meds.

There is a new kid in town… his name is ‘maximum loudness without distortion’!

Meet him FTW.

;)

I disagree. The game is maximum PERCEIVED loudness. Big difference. Max perceived loudness accounts for space as well. Subtractive EQ is your friend here. Space isn’t just about panning…it also involves making room in the frequency spectrum for each instrument in a way that maximizes its role in the mix. Once you have done this, compression is your friend.

It isn’t just about turning it up folks.

To my ear, everything seems to be at the same velocity. This might not be true but, for example, the attack of the oboe is always the same. I think this is one of the reasons they told you it needed to sound more natural. In addition, you need some automation of volume and expression. The swell in the oboe seems to be the same every time so I am guessing it is built into the sample. It needs to ebb and flow with a little less predictability.

Also, the synth sound is a bit dated and needs more expression.

The marimba sample isn’t bad but, again, more expression. More dynamic contrast.

The track is good from a compositional standpoint. Work on making it sound like a performance rather than a production.

Hope this helps.

While I don’t use it the most, the one I love the most for its sound is the Maag EQ4. The Air band is killer!
