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 comp...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

Since this is a test-run... I could scale things back a bit and offer "wrong file formats" as "minor offense" as well (leaving only: no download possible, no username associated, re-submissions during the deadline, submissions after the deadline). I'd need to talk to the Song Provider about this - ...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

On that behalf, I appreciate the positivity in the MC075 thread, @White Punk OD and @RoadieShow. However - those entries that are not in the right format to begin with (WAV, but I also let AIFF count), are (sadly) not eligible to get a second chance. Wrong sampling rate and bitrate are often slip u...

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

A few tips for those struggling with CPU issues: - Make sure you're only running your DAW. Don't have any other apps running when you're mixing, if you can. - Check out your computer's audio management. What kind of software is running? Does your operating system have some kind of "audio enhancement...

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

Oh oh! Just realized my mistake! Sorry, I meant to copy and paste both a mp3 and wav version of my mix on the post. I usually provide both versions of the file so people can listen to it on mobile but pasted only one (and the wrong one) on my post. Well, there goes a few hours of work in the trash!...

Greetings! Thanks to the host (and of course the artists) for keeping this competition fun and interesting. I really enjoyed mixing Megalomaniac, the pacing and density of sounds made it an exciting challenge. I started by grouping the vocals, drums, keys and bass sounds into busses to get some orde...

Greetings! This was an interesting challenge, for sure! I enjoyed the track and had a lot of fun navigating through all the dense layers of sound. My approach was simple: to take you on a trip through space and time (like Doctor Who). After gain staging, group bussing and EQing to reduce the competi...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC073 February 2021 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

Hello, I'd really like to understand why I got disqualified. If I insert the wav file in my DAW (Cakewalk) it shows that it peaks at -1.00 dB, while on your sheet it says -0.70dBTP, which is out of the range. What tool do you do your measurements with? And overall what should I have done, set the p...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC073 February 2021 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

lol my track was too hot to pass??ok... probably whoever decides that is not even engeneer. According to the sheet your track was definitely too loud, both in overall integrated loudness and in true peak. The volume limits were very clearly posted in the rules. Achieving maximum volume is the job o...
