Re: WIPs/unfinished tunes for feedback * no finished tunes *

Hey guys, Anybody have an idea how I can make the sound fatter and more tight? I'm really trying to mix everthing in all kind of directions but it's all just getting weirder. Here's how it sounds uncompressed/unmastered/untouched: http://soundcloud.com/prantare/hablaha-work-in-progress I want it to ...

Improving production while on vacation?

Helo! I am going to Croatia for 8 days in the end of this week and I can't bring my laptop => no producing. I was wondering if you know any good ways to improve my production while I'm away? I thought of books and is there any good book I can order from e.g. Amazon on production, Reason (I am curren...

Re: WIPs/unfinished tunes for feedback * no finished tunes *

4rantare: I actually really like this, you say you don't know much about mixing but the mix sounds okay so far to me. I'm actually doing alot of practising trying to get better in mixing so I'd be happy to do a mixdown of the track for you if you wanted, just hit me up if you're interested. :) That...

Re: WIPs/unfinished tunes for feedback * no finished tunes *

4rantare: That sounded really good, loved the melody you've got in the beginning and after the drop sounded great. The only thing that I would change is your kick. I can definitely tell that its there but it has no "umph" to it in the low end. It may be fine by itself but with the bass that's comin...

Re: WIPs/unfinished tunes for feedback * no finished tunes *

So after attempting to make a few house songs I went straight into making my first real song at 140bpm. I noticed I don't know shit about mixing... everything is just all over the place and I feel like abandoning the track. Should I start all over or should I keep working on it? Here it is: http://s...

dotcurrency: I really liked wip-2. The intro is very familiar to the GTA IV soundtrack in feeling. Quite nice. Would definatley suit some game or movie! Cruz: Great mixing there! When the voice came in I started laughing. :D Very enjoyable track. Very well use of the 3D soundspace. Also sounds abit ...

How good do you guys think "star artist producers" (couldn't come up with a better "name", sorry) would sound without help mastering and mixing? Would it have a huge impact on e.g. David Guettas or Skrillex (sorry for picking Skrillex guys but I love him and his sound :6:) sound? I'm fairly interest...

Cubase 5 not saving automation correctly? o.o

Sorry in advance for anyone who thinks I am flooding the forum with Cubase questions.. and if it is overwhelming please just give me a notice. :4: I lose much of my automation in Cubase 5 each time I save a project. Cubase overrides the automation I did with some strange automation for other things....

Re: My music sounds different in DAW (Cubase) and after expo

Switched the bass, added some stereo widening and remixed some stuff and now it sounds alittle bit closer to what it sounds like in Cubase. Actually the stereo widening did the most difference. :S Well, still sounds abit too much compressed.. but here is what it sounds like now: http://soundcloud.co...

Re: My music sounds different in DAW (Cubase) and after expo

Make sure VLC doesn't have an EQ turned on ;p EQ was not turned on. :( It goes into the red when it exceeds 0db. It might be best if you post up an audio clip for us to listen to mate. Will do! and thx a lot for helping btw =) Also sounds like the compressors are ducking strangley during 00:14 -> 0...

Re: My music sounds different in DAW (Cubase) and after expo

I tried Media Player Classic and it playbacks the music much better. :o could it be VLC that fails? Maybe. Ive never had an issue with VLC though... I use Cubase 5 too BTW. Did you bounce the song with the master hitting, or very nearly hitting 0db? If not then it will sound very thin and weedy whe...

Re: My music sounds different in DAW (Cubase) and after expo

When I am in Cubase (LE 5) the music I make sounds really crispy, punchy, loud and everything. Then, when I export it to a 32bit .wav (44.1kHz) and play my music it sounds less punchy, loses some of the higher ends and also sounds a smaller tad quieter and also I feel like it loses some of the "ste...

Re: Beats Audio for laptop just gimmick or actually worth a

gimmick tbh if it has a beats audio soundcard ("beats audio built in!") in the laptop.... fuck that for no other reason than it's likely not a flat frequency response (prob adjusted to boost bass, excite the top end, or whatever the hell else Beats is supposed to "do") I don't reckon its better or ...

Beats Audio for laptop just gimmick or actually worth a look

Hey guys, I am on the lookout for a laptop to use while I'm on vacation for producing music; this means I'll use it on the train, on the flight and on spot in whatever city I visit. I got a really really good deal for a nice laptop with SSD, nice CPU and a 14" anti-glare screen (€590€). :6: However,...

Yep way too much reverb and I'd also up the higher ends and up the volume overall. :z:
