Re: Limiter on rough mixes

'I'll throw a little L2 Maximizer on there so they can really hear it rip' ... If it's just a limiter and it's only doing a couple few db reduction it's likely fine, that's not going to change the perception/perspective of the mix too much. It's the 'mastering preset' stuff that makes shit get all ...

Re: Limiter on rough mixes

Speaking as a masterer.....I understand why people do this and it's fine, just a couple things: 1. When you're cranking the mix up with the limiter, just make sure you're cranking it up to something reasonable. Sometimes people send me the 'quick master for clients' versions along with the unmastere...

Re: Bass Plugins

For di bass guitar shaping you might prefer something more like an amp and/or speaker cab modeler plug-in. +1. I record DI bass and usually what I'm wanting from it in the mix is more mid/high definition. Drastic eq can sort of work but I find just putting it through an "amp" works a lot better. I ...

Re: When to use Mono or Stereo FX and Panning

And as for panning, I never fo past 90, to leave room for the Stereo FX. Is this a good idea, or does it not matter? Besides the usual dead center stuff, like Lead Vox, Kick, Snare, Bass, should I be giving each instrument it's own value? Like if I pan something L80, should I not put anything else ...

Re: Mastering to LUFS standards

If it was me I wouldn't change the mixes. If they're doing what you want leave them as is. I'd compare to other commercial mixes. Are they actually hitting -16 LUFS or is Spotify just turning them down before streaming? Maybe compare a song where you own a hard copy or hi-rez download. What do the ...

Re: Tons of Plugin Deals Right Now. Any Suggestions?

I haven't tried springs, but y'know it's probably great. I had pretty low expectations for valves, but it surprised me....sounds really good, very usable, well thought out features. I messed with the demo for maybe 2 minutes before deciding to buy. Their space echo sounds worlds better than the GS-2...

Re: Would Dumping from an 8 track repeatedly cause sync issues?

As kslight said, you'll have serious timing drift and it'll be a real PITA to cut everything up on the computer to get it back in sync. One thing you could do is track THROUGH the tape machine to DAW. Have the Otari on 'repro' and just send everything right to the computer. All the tracks will be be...

Re: Is my situation condusive to a Monitor puchase?

Well, there's no point in treating the room if you have no speakers at all, but if you have any speakers at all, then improving your acoustics is job #1. To me, the quality of the gear is way less important than room acoustics. +1000. Room treatment is far and away the smartest money you can spend....

Re: Monitor dilemma

If you'd consider used, I'd look for a pair of old b+w 805s, you can definitely find them for your budget and I think they'd make you (or anyone) happier than ns10s would.
