Re: Preparing a mix (for mastering) - Let's all help each other.

I've read the tarekith mastering, very helpful. Thanks for the feedback, my general question is that it doesn't really matter what your master bus is, as long as it's not clipping? I understand raising volume levels on monitors, my issue I'm using two Yamaha 5's (on pads) in a small room with only a...

Preparing a mix (for mastering) - Let's all help each other.

Hello, I know this has been posted on many occasions. I've read countless things, produced for 7+ years and always done my own mastering. My problem arises that I've always (in my mind) blended the mixing and mastering phases, while I kept them separate, I always seemed to be doing things in the mix...

Please Help *Ableton Keeps Crashing on Startup* VST Scan

I accidentally installed a PC version of a VST and now every time I load up Live it crashes and won't get past the scan screen. It is attempted to load the VST's on the VST scan when Live starts, however due to the programs now being proper format they are not allowing live to open. I am unable to o...

Re: sidechain compressor

i have started using a new method of sidechaining that may be useful.. create and audio channel, set it as 'in' with the in/out and then with the audio 'from' channel set your kick channel (or whatever you want your sound sidechained too..). Next, place a compressor on the 'audio' channel and then w...

Re: A quick question on ducking

Your description pretty much nailed it. Although if you are using the compressor that comes with Live it is more flexible to add a new side chain compressor to each track you wish to duck. If using a 3rd party side chain compressor it can be set up by doing the following: Set up one audio track as ...

Using 'Groups'

I am using Full Live version 8 and recently discovered 'groups' and am curious how some of you use this feature. Is it wise to group up your drums? Also, if you do any pointers as to how I should run my sidechain channel? Should I double the Kick channel and mute the one channel and use that as my S...
