Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC067 July 2020 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

I would appreciate to handle the mixes like a "thesis", that will get challenged in many ways, and has to be defended, for the sake of education and finding one's own position in a fair but intense way. Interesting conversation White Punk Overdive, I cant imagine being responsible for sel...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC067 July 2020 - Submissions until 21-07-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

Hello, here is my submission for MC067. I really liked this song, and thought the vocal performance was great. Had fun working on it too, hope you like my mix. I applied some EQ (ProQ2) and minimal compression (Waves, Massey, Izotope) where needed on specific tracks. I performed some additional EQ o...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC064 April 2020 - Submissions until 21-04-2019 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

Here is my submission for MC064. DAW ProTools 12.x. Bounced @ 44kHz, 24bit. The thing I learned most from the reference tracks, was balance and subtlety in the presence range. Not in your face, yet dynamic and impactful. Non offensive even at LOUD volumes, despite featuring the bass so prominently. ...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC063 March 2020 - Submissions until 21-03-2019 11:59pm GMT+1/CET

Here is my submission for MC0063, using PT12.xx formatted to 44kHz, 24bit. According to my TC Clarity we have a program loudness of -22.4 LUFS and a loudness range of 13.9 LU. I didn’t have time to download the files till this morning… So it was a good days work. This is a very passionate performanc...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC062 February 2020 - MC062 February 2020 - Mix Round 2 until 28-02-2020 11:59pm GMT+1/CET

I'm scratching my head here, my metering indicates a level of -1.1 dBTP. What could be the cause? I can read that the EBU calibration standard allows for a 0.6 dB (+0.2/-0.4) tolerance. This is just very strange. Any idea why this could be? dB Full Scale (dBFS) is not the same as dB True Peak (dBTP...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC062 February 2020 - Submissions until 21-02-2019 11:59pm GMT+1/CET

Here is my submission for MC062. I use Pro Tools 12.7.1, bounced at 24Bit 48kHz. My biggest challenge here was the soundstage. With every track being stereo, and some panning and spatial effects printed in, it was tough figuring out how to situate it all on the canvas. I used a lot of gates to clip ...

Hello Franz, thank you for the contribution for MC061. I enjoy working with jazz, love this tune and have mixed performances of it before, both live and in studio. My DAW is Pro Tools, and I use a TC Clarity for loudness monitoring during mix. The loudest peaks dance right around -16 LUFS, while the...
