Re: Limiter on rough mixes

I never saw the point of normalizing, have never really done it. All it does is raise the highest peak to zero, and you might well have one peak that's 3db higher than anything else....if you wanted to be fussy about it you'd go through and manually turn down just the highest peak bits and THEN norm...

Re: Limiter on rough mixes

I researched this years ago, and many of my peers agreed that making CDs and mp3s required that NO maximum volume should be allowed in the print file, to help avoid problems with the encoding processes of both compact discs and mp3 files. This is true, but there's overs on loads and loads of CDs an...

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...
