Re: Mastering To Or For Different Players Yikes Earbuds?

One ME chastized me harshly for dithering the final mixes once. That is just plain goofy. What was their problem with the dithered mixes? Were they at 24 or 16 bit? If they were 24 then the ME was just being crazy. If they were 16 and you'd used noise-shaped dither, maaaaaaybe that might present so...

Re: Mastering To Or For Different Players Yikes Earbuds?

Dithering is from the days of "not loud masters" going from an analog transfer to a digital one (think 1980s to 2000s), and with shit sounding converters, at least as compared to what we enjoy today. And even back then it was only used when necessary, not all the time. I'm sorry, but no. To avoid t...

Re: mastering tricks for gaining level

If it's crackling the release time is too fast and/or there's just too much low mid in the vocals at those spots. So either automate an eq move at those spots or automate the limiter for a slower release.

Or convince your client to spend $35 and you can make it my problem. :D

Re: mastering tricks for gaining level

Well, tough to say without hearing it, but if your issue is vocal peaks causing distortion, Standard CLIP (or any clipper) isn't what you want unless you have it set really soft...which if you can do it on just the vocal stem I suppose is worth trying, but soft clipping is just distortion....so you'...

Re: What music stuffs are ya's doin' today?

What about "More Than a Feeling"? :twisted: Heh. That first Boston record is pretty unfuckwithable IMO. You gotta love a record where the guitar player did almost all of it in his basement, AND the producer wisely realized this was absolutely the right way to go and lied to the record company to ke...

i love mark sandman and morphine. that slide bass thing was so innovative at the time.
They were a great band, got to see them a bunch back in the day. Can still vividly remember what I was doing when I found out he'd died.

"Cure for Pain" is one of the best records ever to come out of Boston.

Finishing up the mastering on a 17-song record of really, really nice acoustic guitar pieces. When I'm done with that I'm gonna practice guitar, because inspiration.

Re: pan your drums out of the center

Mildly amusing story about audience perspective.....years ago, recording a friend's band at my old loft, we were fortunate to have the estimable Zach Barocas on the drums. One of my favorite drummers, an old friend and a big influence. So we record some takes, they all come into the control room to ...
