Re: Monitors or treatment?

I've got good monitors but suffer from a weirdly shaped and cluttered room that has recently made it impossible to tell whats going on in my mixdowns without referencing on headphones every 10 minutes - i'd do the treatment!

Re: WIP Thread - GIVE FEEDBACK TO OTHERS BEFORE POSTING!!!

dial_back nice beat, love the intro actually, the main bass on the drop sounds way too out of tune and muddy though, would recommend trying something else imo. sjscar love this tune man, intro is perfect imo. can't think of any criticism apart from maybe clean up that rolling hi-hat, doesn't sound ...

I've known some engineers to ask for -7db of headroom, it just depends on the way they work.

Headroom on a pre master.

Hi guys, so i've done a real thorough mix on this tune of mine, and it turned out great so i've decided i want to get it mastered. Unfortunately there is like 0 headroom in the chorus, and i know this is less than ideal for mastering. I'm assuming I can't just turn down the mixer fader haha, so what...

Free Massive pack from myself. 28 patches included.

My very best 14 basses, 4 FX, 9 Leads and one pad that I've made. I mostly use these patches for dnb and dubstep. A few patches only sound right at one or two notes and should be resampled, such as the posij bass (my personal favourite). And two patches came from patches other people gave away but I...

How do you know if someone started working on the track days earlier?

Its mostly a trust thing, there are no prizes for winning the comp so what'd be the point? I'll try my best to find some time to enter :)
