what’s up fellows,
I’ve been watching mixing/mastering tutorials for about two years now (not only watching but implementing as well) so I know a lot about EQ, compression, sound imaging, saturation and other mixing techniques
nevertheless, I still believe there’s always something missing in my final mixes
I know that the mix needs to be sounding commercial-ready before the mastering stage
as mastering is all about polishing not fixing & cleaning
if anybody can help, as tutorials are hard to request over here
(despite of the forum’s title)
so am I missing something !! or is my mixing just sucks ***
I believe I can post a couple of links for mixes I’ve done in the past months
this is my latest one, I think it’s (128 kbps)
so here’s another a (320 kbps) it’s almost half play time of my favorite track of mine
FIY this is my setup
i’m using both Ableton & FL Studio but I do the final mix & render my tracks using FL studio, no monitors just a couple of cheap *** speakers & a sub woofer, I use headphones for reference plus I test it on car speakers which always disappoints
stereo-wise I find my mixes lacking a defined space and sometimes sounds are just floating allover, sounds okay on my headphones and my speakers though
any help would be greatly appreciated
what’s up fellows,
Just listened on my AKG’s but I can’t find anything wrong with it mixing wise. Sounds really polished and well balanced. Nothing too loud. Not muddy at all. Bass sits very tight in the mix.
I agree… the other track you posted just sounds a bit more compressed overall but i think your mix is spot on.
phew what a relief
thanks a lot for the replies, guess I just really need a set of monitors
and probably a slight acoustic treatment so I can get mixes to sound exactly
like I want them to be
btw I love your work Phil thanks a lot for helping so many artists out there
Thanks! Your very welcome!
