Re: Limiter on rough mixes

Only if there are crazy transients, if not then I just normalize. I am not a commercial operation though so these recordings are just for me/bandmates. Could understand how those with clients have different needs.

Re: WTB: Alesis Wedge power supply and your old cheap reverbs

I have a midiverb iv rack unit. Actually it has an intermittent issue if IIRC, works fine sometimes but not always. It's free if you pay shipping.

Re: Searching for Best Studios in Boston, MA and/or Surrounding Locations

I've been away from the scene for a bit, but if Woolly Mammoth in Waltham is still operating I highly recommend talking to Dave Minehan there. He's great.

Re: New album; ambient soundscape etc.

Thank you for listening, Scott! My video producer friend happened to ask me the other day if I had any instrumental music he might use for inspiration. I think this stuff is crying out for visuals. I hope all is well with you in Southie.

New album; ambient soundscape etc.

Hi. Just wanted to share a link to something I recently released. It is somewhat conceptual, minimalistic, dreamlike...performed solely on guitar, lots of loops, and was recorded across several different media including cassette 4 track. Fans of Bill Laswell, Fripp, Eno, and the like might be intere...

It's not really a "watch' thing, guys, it's a "listen" thing.
I prefer to look at the waveform rather than listen. Just like when I mix! :^:

Re: Mixing Tutorials and "Smart" EQ's

Any recommendations on good mixing tutorials?

I really like Dave Pensado's videos on mixing. There are tons at his website, pensadosplace.tv (I'm not affiliated).

forget meters. don't look at waveforms. use your ears. perceived loudness has more to do with mix balance/quality and eq than compression/limiting. Good advice. I realized this recently when I was listening to some stuff I recorded a while back and although the levels weren't all that hot, I found ...

Years ago, probably right after college because I was living at my parent's place, I was driving to my friend's house and passed an organ on the curb that somebody was getting rid of. I'm psyched so I go back home, borrow the station wagon, and grab the thing. It worked for the most part but there w...

I think depth of field - where elements of the mix seem to sit in terms of near and far - is a big part of what we're talking about. Left/right is one axis, and near/far would be another. If you want less separation, you might shoot for giving the tracks a unified point in the mix in terms of depth....
