We've started creating our own at the beginning of each session. WE also have the Andy Reilly kits as well as the Supersonic and Drumwerks kits. Have bought the Slate samples yet but we're tempted... That's a great idea. I have to start doing that. I've never used any of these, should I consider pi...

Slider, which drum samples are you using? Are they your own? Tony, what direction DO you want to take the mix in? What about Slider's mix do you not like? What about Slider's mix DO you like and want to incorporate into your own stuff? I'll have my version available Sat. or Sun... Cool stuff! I hav...

Yeah I was quickly pouring on the cheese sause for fun, demonstrating how a mix can easily mutate into something else entirely. The first 45 minutes mixing a song is usually pure experimental joy.The hours that follow are where the real hard work happens.

I'm sure it's bad but here it is anyway... http://www.mediafire.com/?e5zjmip49zj Holy crap slider! How did you do that? I'd never had thought it could sound so different, it's like a whole other band. Would you mind giving me an outline of what you did? Sure. I used a fake kick and a fake snare sou...

Thanks rwc!
If I get some free time I might touch it up using real monitors at the studio.
I think it really needs automation to work though.
I also had a few stray hits on the snare that I didn't have time to clean up. lol

That's funny, I was monitoring so quiet I didn't even notice noise or buzz.
The hum from my computer fan was louder than my monitors.

This gave me some fun while my 3 yr old daughter was taking a nap. On my home office PC mixing with the volume on almost zero. I tried to make it big and 80's for a laugh, giving myself a time limit of 40 min and no automation. It sounds like the Cult now for some reason. I also kept singing "Keep y...

This is a great price too. Check what these are going for on ebay now.
I already have two of them but I could always find use for one more.

Those RATM mixes are so good. The tight arrangements don't hurt either. Every time I reference my mixes against Andy Wallace I want to cry. Aggressive and clear at the same time. Here's my Andy Wallace formula. Drum samples blended in to augment the existing drum sounds, also used for clean sends to...

I mixed a pop\rock song today. Bordering on Disney pop actually. I didn't track this thing but it had a million guitar layers that didn't make any sense. Somehow I finished it. I'm betting a couple revisions are in my future. It ended up light years ahead of the original mix they gave me which is al...

Frightening stuff. A couple of my friends made some serious money during this record hanging around the studio for months and months waiting for nothing to happen.

It's a bit sad to so easily break it down but for heavier rock stuff I almost always bus the close mics to parallel compression then treat the overs and rooms via inserts if needed. I mix with a couple blown up sounding compressors on channels that I can easily send signals to, so sometimes the rout...

Not my cup of tea, but others seem to love it.
If I want a boring but useful swiss army compressor, I'll reach for a dbx 160x every time.
Those RNC things are inexpensive and stereo though.
