This was hard! Mixed in Harrison Mixbus6. A new DAW for me, but I figured it was a good opportunity to try something different. -1.1 db, -18.1 LUFS :) Harrison Xt-bc, XT-ME, XT-EG, XT-GV, XT-SC, AVA Desser Dangerous BAX EQ Lindell 6X-500 Mixbus EQ, compression, a-EQ, a-Compression Voxengo Boogex, Ol...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC064 April 2020 - Mix Round 2 in evaluation

Hjchjc: that hiss and that distorting fx is (in my opinion) too much, your mix is very different in comparison to the original (your hihat is not a hihat anymore). I can hear a pump fx when the kick kicks in at the begining, is there a compressor/limiter on the stereo output? proper gain staging is...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC064 April 2020 - Mix Round 2 until 10-APR-2020 23:59 UTC+2/CEST

Didn't do that much to this mix, but I took away the panning effects on the break track and centered some other elements, as per your feedback. There's a bit more separation overall and a bit less aggression, in keeping with some of the other DNB music I listened to. I added TRANSATURE, STEQ, and Pu...

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

Not normally my genre, but once I figured it out, this was really fun to mix! Used a lot of Logic's binaural panning ability. One of my goals was giving depth and warmth to an otherwise very digital piece of music. I don’t actually have outboard gear, but I tried to recreate that kind of feeling in ...

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uU5Q9hHoN8JUo0ni-O1l0QQtkWvVeLPW/ Here's my mix! -1.09 tP, -17.3 LUFS, 2-3db of SSL compression on mixbus I grew up on this kind of pop-rock, so I thoroughly enjoyed working on the song, CeZar! My biggest struggle with this mix was how to keep the momentum of the son...

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

question: can you use triggered samples if they're not in the actual mix? for example, if I created a snare track and side-chained a gate on the real snare so I can get a cleaner sound. the sample track will be muted, it would just make for something tighter than a conventional use of a gate if I ca...

My mix is currently -1.1 dbTP but -14.9 LUFS without compression on the mix bus... back to the drawing board!

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

I wanted to try this because it's a genre I don't really listen to - I wanted to focus on finding the beauty of it instead of letting the bombast scare me away. I removed a lot of the low-mid range in most of the tracks and trying to get as much separation as I could using EQ. Not a lot of heavy com...

Here's the mix! -15.8 LUFS, 1.0 tpDB. I aimed for something very mid-2000s, inspired by A Thousand Miles-type piano pop. I'm a fan of any song that brings back that sound and those memories. Orchestral percussion was tough to include, but it's in there very quietly. WAV: https://drive.google.com/fil...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC060 November 2019 - Submissions until 21-11-2019 11:59pm GMT+1/CET

Would a mix that's -3dbTP and -16.4 LUFS be disqualified?


It normalizes to -14.4 LUFS at -1dbTP but I wanted to make sure that it was still submittable.
