Hi guys, any tips for mixing/mastering a solo piano piece to get a wide clean sound? Thanks!!
Are you recording a real piano?
If not, use a quality VST. Focus more on the composition and dynamics. Bring up to commercial level. Minimal EQ if needed.
Hi flumen, using NI komplete. Thanks for that! I wanna keep the track as simple as possible this time. Thanks for the advice!
I’m curious guys, do you ever get any dropout of sound with those Komplete instruments? Sometimes when I use Gentlemen or similar it drops out with loading too many voices, especially if i’m playing lots of notes at once or pedalling.
I also use the gentleman a lot and never had droput notes yet! I used to have a few when using east west pianos diamond though.
Have you tried increasing the max voices setting?
Not at my DAW at the moment - but I think it’s directly under the instrument name, next to output
Tried increasing max voices, did help a little bit, though at times it went off still. Think it could be a RAM issue?
It’s according to your genre. If classical music you need hall reverb and very little compressor or no compressor at all. Pop/rock need more compressor and EQ. Jazz is half of pop and classical. Try to send 2-3 different size of reverb. Pre-delay for more clear notes.
