When I was using vinyl I noticed that when I placed an Echo effect on the efx 500 or no then 1000 I got terrible feedback.

kicks seem to get lost in the middle

I have a nice chunky kick which sounds fine in the intro and outro but gets lost in the middle when combined with the synths, I want to make it punch through, is sidechaining compression the answer? does anyone recommend a good one for Ableton? I was looking at Quantum FX Sidedyn

thanks

cheers for your reply roach 808, sorry to be a pain but could you expand on how you use Liquid mix within Live?

do you use it on each channel or just the master and do you use it alongside any other devices(eg. eq8)?

thanks

Isotope Ozone 3 or Liquid Mix?

I've been trying out the demo fo Isotope Ozone 3 over the last few days and I am pretty pleased with the results. Just using the some of the presets seems to give a nice punchy limited sound.

I can't comment which is better but one thing I'm sure of is that before I got my G4 powerbook I wasn't really into computers(I just used e mail, excel, shopped a bit on line and that's it) BUT now I have G5 desktop with 4GB of ram and a 500 gig hd and it works so well with ABleton and Reason, I can...
