    alexgowers Says:

    you cannot mix!

    This is shocking, you are using compression all wrong mate! EQ is for cutting mainly and only boosting one freq max. Dear me.

    @Nagraath Producing is not the same as mixing. That’s why there are producers and there are mixers. I thought that was common knowledge. What he was doing there was explaining how he mixed that piece.

    SeanMandrake Says:

    Let me make a suggestion: If you boost EQ all the time then everything fights with each other for space in a mix and it will sound cluttered and messy. Consider cutting each element instead in such a way that it leaves space for the other drums and instruments.

    For example if you want the low end on a kick to stand out, cut away the LF from the other toms and the snare. This is way more effective than boosting. Peace.

    it really does sound like a linkin park

    novanine9 Says:

    Why don’t the loop designers come out with a choice of the same construction kits, that are already eq’d and comped to perfection along with the raw ones?

    THIS WOULD BE SOOOOO USEFUL FOR SONGWRITERS AND RECORDING ARTISTS WHO ARE NOT EXPERTS AT MIXING AND MASTERING…ALLOWING THEM TO CONCENTRATE ON THE CREATION AND ARTISTRY.

    TheLuotutin Says:

    @theemyogasinger Mixing is all unatural hence not good to focus on…You loose hearing when using it,and then trying to make a new song…

    TheLuotutin Says:

    ilikemyrealname Says:

    wow, you guys should re-watch your own video on studio etiquette. learn to control yourselves when the pressure is on. I can’t imagine this being a positive example for those students or anyone else watching to learn. beware of “panic management”, this is NOT how sessions should be ran. to anyone learning to be an engineer, you CAN remain calm during moments even worse than this, and you’ll have to if you wanna truly be successful.

    You dont have to act like that to get viewers…i like wiki sound because it always had great information that i could really use…how about show what there doing while they mix or show the setup so we can learn something..there is enough cheezy ass reality tv thats out there with idiots yelling at each other…stand for something..be something more…respect yourselves…as much as people love to watch crap and the end of the day they dont really respect you for stuff like that.

    eArtrash Says:

    @ChrisDenmanSmells I was only stating MY opinion…I wouldn’t appreciate being spoken to like that by anyone. So what it they are “noobs”?..they should still be given respect. And yes, I know its edited..(probably to make it seem more dramatic than it was) but thanks for stating the obvious!

    ChrisDenmanSmells Says:

    @eArtrash they deserve it for being noobs. AND he is joking around. (I know him personally and It’s called editing)
