Re: next 2 hrs only: post your tracks and I will opinionate

Pah. Too late also :( I've one posted in Link Your Music of course, gathering preverbial dust I just went with your reverbnation page. If you assassinated Trent Reznor you'd be a solid shoe in for scoring the next David Fincher movie. Some really solid production and I'd like to invite you to join ...

Re: getting the reverb on a vocal just right

Another thing you can add, again in a subtle manner, is some panned delay, just a few ms panned either side will give it some presence :)

Re: new downtempo track - Petrichor

Not a bad effort. For me the vinyl crackle was a bit too much, sounded a little more like a log fire burning in the background. Vocals are different - I'd be inclined to EQ out some of the lower frequencies of them as it's a little muddy and either turn down the reverb on them a bit or reduce the vo...

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so they say.

Re: Mixmag - Greatest dance act of all time

I'm a fan of the Mau5, but as with everything there's chaff with the wheat. For me though, lists like this always have a flaw in them that more recent/current stuff gets rated more highly simply because it's on the mind. Pretty much any list you want to put together of greatest this or best ever tha...

Re: kinda miss the days when...

Interesting read. After I'd started producing I recall the day I first picked something up in another 'pro' track that I'd not heard before, and knew how it was created. I quite enjoy picking at things sometimes but can equally switch off and just listen passively. As mentioned above, I can listen t...

Re: Do you feel burned.....

My chum at work has a collection of vintage synths, samplers, FX units and so on, all hardware and kept in his accomplices purpose built home studio. Over the years, about 20 odd, it's cost them in the region of £25k to build this collection. Today, with Live (and it's counterparts) you can build th...

Re: Deleting Ableton/plug-in pictures

Images are probably the smallest individual items you have on your hard drive. I'd be more inclined to remove larger files such as mp3, wav and video files for a more marked result. Are you able to plug in an external USB drive or similar? Given the relatively cheap price of storage devices these da...

Re: question re club mixing /sound quality

I would imagine sorting a few little bits on your master channel, such as compressor and limiter will help. If you do sound check before then you can tweak your compressor to get similar loudness to the other guys. Good luck!

Re: How to control violin vibrato?

It's possibly not the same thing, but I find that tweaking everything a bit here and there always helps make it sounds more realistic :)
