Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC080 September 2021 - Submissions until 21-09-2021 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

Quick Question: Are we "tied" to the instrument placement in the stereo field from the demo mixed version? Or are we free to completely change the instrument placement in the stereo field? For instance if I wanted the violins on the left instead, would that be allowed per contest rules Mister Fox? ...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC075 April 2021 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

@RoadieShow Ya that is quite helpful, ive set mine up similarily in cubase, its another good system to keep you right and not pushing mixes too hard.

@White Punk OD Aye thats a good clean way of doing it. Plus after its done once, you just save the template and setting up mixes is a breeze

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC075 April 2021 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

damn that sucks, also, the advantage to using a gain plug first and not the faders is that the reduction will be pre fader at the beginning of the signal chain and will be the level that leads into your compressor etc this helps keep everything in check and within optimal ranges for your gear and pl...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC075 April 2021 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

RodA Also one of the best tips for loudness i was ever given, that i use on every project, is to drop all of my tracks -10dB (using a gain plug) before even doing any gain staging to give me tons of dynamic space to work with and this can knock out many of the overs right away, after that, if compr...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC075 April 2021 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

RodA thanks for the listen and feedback, if I were to take some of the low mids i have on the vox and trade them down to my lows of the bass guitar a tad bit and if the added range contrast doesnt pull the top end out of the vox enough, i could add a .5dB (ish) high shelf on them. This would (proba...

@d8bflup hey, question, what is that effect at 1:06-1:08? It sounds a bit like a rainstick in the back (it obviously isnt, but whatever causes it sounds sonically similar), it only lasts for 2 seconds, but ive heard this sound a few times lately in other productions, and cant for the life of me fig...

Hi kirurg Had a listen through, dont have time for a very long review right now, so just briefly, you vocal tone is increadible, i love it and some of the dynamics and volume automation is just spot on! Very enjoyable. I did notice that there are times where the harmonies just seem to be missing or ...
