Re: My latest mixing problem - peak at -6db.

Like Tarekith I hate maths and unlike him my understanding of all this is pretty basic.. but from what I can gather from the thread linked below it's better to track and mix at lower levels. http://www.gearslutz.com/board/so-much-gear-so-little-time/463010-reason-most-itb-mixes-don-t-sound-good-anal...

Re: My latest mixing problem - peak at -6db.

Okay guys, so when I set up my tracks and master peak is under 0db, but for example -1db, I simply must lower the volume on master about 5db(to achieve the goal: i.e. -6db)? This is how it works? No. If after you've balanced all the tracks with each other the Master is peaking too high then select ...

if anyone talking sauce has a track (your own) with nearly the energy, production quality or originality, lets hear it link em up vvvvvvvvvv Where did this idea originate that if you want to critique something you have to be able to do better yourself? If I go to a restaurant and the food sucks do ...

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

Seriously, Mozart is at times extremely boring, there IMO seems to be a "look what I can do!" element to his stuff. Too many notes? :wink: I would add that most amazing players out there are more concerned with getting better than being thought of as a great player. Total devotion to improving thei...

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

You've stated this entire thread that there is a top tier that is to you obviously a result of a genetic predisposition, and as we all know nothing has been proven in this field. You're convinced already. Eugenics isn't in itself evil, that wasn't the point. It has a massively positive impact on an...

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

the 2 systems obviously have an bidirectional relation... it's been proven that a mental state affects a persons' physical state... and vice-versa (after all ..all your physical "tools" are hooked up to your brain) I talk about dualism because it's out there... almost everywhere you look..

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

I knew. Classical music still stands out even though there is full of snobbery rubbish in its world. Not to mention, I can't find any rubbish in its pure artistic side. It's pretty funny seeing you post about snobbery given your rants here and on other forums about the use of sample packs etc and v...

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

Not what I said. I said Eugenics is the "science" of trying to determine a genetic component to intelligence, and we all know where that went last time mankind went there, sterilizations, and genocide. So yes I am saying you're proposing a viewpoint that the fascists held, that simply cannot be den...

That's dualism which really doesn't have any evidence to support it and leads on to religion, not gonna go there.
funny thing about humans is... they can work against their own nature if they WANT!
That's an area of some debate :wink: .

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

Nothing crass about it, the idea that you could isolate a gene for intelligence or creativity, that it's a genetic thing, that's pretty much the sum of Eugenics, it's essentially what Eugenics is about. Fascism simply took it to it's unfortunate logical extreme. So far there hasn't been any way to ...

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

Personally I think it will be great when we can isolate the creative, intelligent, genes and just make it really easy for all of society in the future to tell who the superior people are. Hopefully it will line up with the accumulated wealth of the richest families so we can all be happy with this ...

Re: How to get really good at Music/Art

While it's true that physically based technical skills do not relate directly to creative ability I think the point is that people are not equal and it's somewhat naive or blinkered to simply say 'we can all be awesome if we try hard enough'. That doesn't in any way mean people shouldn't try if they...
