Remixers - how do I find them?

I have released 2 singles and DJs like them but as they are both around 3 mins, they want the extended versions for their DJ sets & radio shows. I did a remix for my 1st single Naughty Boys (https://luckykat.bandcamp.com/track/naughty-boys-extended-mix ) but would rather let remixers play with it an...

Re: Ableton is the worst music software ever

Recommend posting this on the FL Studio forum lol. I have had moments like yours mate. CPU getting crushed, desperately trying to keep it under 100%, crashes, plugins not working well with it etc. But then I look back to when I was using ProTools as a sound engineer a few years back & am grateful fo...

2nd Single Made on Ableton (& big challenges)

Hey Ableton family, I released my 2nd single 'Musical Chairs' which I made using Ableton. Check it out: https://luckykat.bandcamp.com/track/musical-chairs-feat-chris-coxen The biggest challenge I encountered was getting the vocal narration to sit in the mix as the synths & crescendo made the track m...

Ableton Plugins Disappearing

Scenario: I launch the Drum Rack and open Macros menu. I then drag the Channel EQ into the "Drop Devices Here" section. When I go back to another section on the Drum Rack, the Channel EQ plugin disappears & I can't see it in the rack. Same thing has happened when using Surround Panner. Anyone know w...

You need to change the "solo in place" setting, which is on the Options menu, or right-click on any solo button.
Thanks mate. Super helpful.

Re: What is your recommended Mixing/Mastering setup?

Ozone is really good too, just remember that because they give you so many tools to use doesn't mean you NEED to use them on every song. Less is more when it comes to mastering, so only use what you need and don't throw everything at it. 2 questions: - How do you reduce the CPU usage by iZotope plu...

Tracks still play when another track is on solo

I routed a few tracks to a Return track to use the surround panner. But when I solo a separate track, instead of it only playing that track, it also plays the tracks routed to the Return track. Super frustrating because I only need to be able to hear the one track.

Re: What is your recommended Mixing/Mastering setup?

DMG Equilibrium for all EQing Voxengo MSED for imaging adjustments DMG Limitless for all dynamics control Those are my go to tools (in that order) for 95% of the stuff people send me for mastering. Usually when people are having issues with overall brightness and volume, I find they are overdoing t...

What is your recommended Mixing/Mastering setup?

Keen to learn from producers what master racks you use to get the best sound for your releases. I use the OTT plugin on the Master when mixing. Then when mastering I use Ozone 9 with Waves L1 & L2 alternatives (George Yohng W1 Limiter + LoudMax 64) as the limiters. I am achieving pretty solid mixes ...

Re: Latency from master track effect plugins

Bounce everything down to Audio BEFORE you do anything with Ozone. That way you can then just solely use Ozone to finish your track How do you bounce everything down to audio? Record all the tracks to Audio, either as a stereo Master or individual audio tracks. Generally a Much lighter load on CPU ...

Graphic Designers For Single/Album Artwork

I read on a forum recently that there are graphic designers who offer their services for free by collaborating with producers to gain exposure. Does anyone have any sites/contacts that could help? Looking for graphics for my upcoming single and album. Thanks!

Increased space for clips

When i/o and the other right sidebar icons are selected & the audio effects window is open at the bottom, there is often very little space to see the clips. Instead of having to drag the screen down to replace the audio effects, or deselect i/o etc, it would be good to be able to simply click and dr...

Re: Latency from master track effect plugins

@jestermgee - Is there a risk with rendering tracks where you can't go back and easily make changes? Or when it is rendered, is it dynamic? Same question for freezing. These options seem like good suggestions. Thanks! Not if done correct. Freeze can be useful when you are producing and a heavy trac...
