what kind of music is it? I find in some cases tracking the body of the kit and the cymbals separate. keep the over heads low on the body of the kit and enjoy the benefits of compressing a drum kit without cymbals. ;)

i think we are basically saying the same thing. i think i just actively try and weed out information i get, taking everything on board as truth can lead to some crappy habbits, mainly people people just do things without listening and actually hearing if it works for them or not.

And in a sort of Darwinian manner, eventually the useful bits will stick around and the irrelevant bits will fall by the wayside. Basically what i mean in a nutshell. however youve described somewhat of a passive evolution, as I think it should be an active one. find out things what work for you an...

Its good, but not that much different from reading other peoples ideas and opinons on the internet/people that you talk to. the only differance can be the peoples experiance. basically i wouldnt take any book as gospel, ive read mixing with your mind and ther...

I couldnt really load all the song but from what i heard it sounds like you could cut some frequencies here and there. on the vocal it sounds like there might be some weird room reflections going on which makes it a little....glugy? maybe suss that out and try cutting a like with a really narrow Q. ...

When I first saw that I thought, "Wow I could stomach Bon Iver for $10,000", but then I changed my mind. The amount of work to be done would have to be a lot, and the likely hood of being picked is slim. Especially for something I really dislike. Good luck to those that do like him! Really? its a b...

Ive often wondered about the behringer and other low end compressors. Is it worth having these kinds of things in the signal chain? Say I was tracking a vocal, are cheap compressors going to help me? Or is it better to just keep my singal chain as "clean" or as "good" as it can be and compress in th...
