Ableton Forum's top production and mixing tips

Post by Psychoactive_Music » Sun Jun 08, 2014 2:45 pm

I'll start, maybe we can do one each?
helpful tips, daft tips, funny tips... whatever you like
No rules,it's just a bit of fun.

#1. Remember to leave headroom in the mixing process. Balance you're levels to taste , but keep peaks below -6db as a general guideline.

- never process your audio unless you hear a need for it, not because your favorite artist said they use a certain technique.

Maybe a little OT but hey, Clean up your projects! ( File Menu>Manage Project>and delete unused files you don't no longer use.)

If you use them, set Live's reverb to high quality mode, and EQ's to oversampling.
