Hey guys and gals,
The last discussion I started regarding guitar-tones was really helpful for me (and hopefully to others as well) so here’s another thing that I would love to hear your thoughts on:
How to get better at mixing and make tracks that sound mind-blowingly-awesome? I’m really motivated to improve and would love some advice (@sunchannelmusic, @StudioMonkey,@KingLeo,@RedLionProduction,@soundroll,@BlueFoxMusic,@Stockwaves,@benjijackson ). By the way, if any of you guys don’t like me tagging you then please tell me and i’ll stop. .
Here are my two cents on the matter from my personal experience:
Listen carefully to music that sounds great and actively try and be aware of everything that’s going on in the mix- from the general balance between the instruments and the basic arrangement to the fine details.
Try to make tracks that have a similar arrangement and ‘feel’ as some of the best tracks out there. From my short experience, this step helps so so much.
Give a great emphasis to the musical composition. I’ve noticed that every song that I find great has a nice base (some great harmony/melody/groove…). Every time I spent a lot of time on the basics, the end result was miles and miles better.
