it would sound great at 60 Hz


do you ever have issues with phrase cancellation when you post the exact opposite of someone else or does the forum's thread engine give mixed results?

let's discuss the 60 Hz banger you and funken are working on instead.

who is your target audience?

did you come up with this idea together?

now that high frequencies do not matter, do you find you save time by not having to look for hi-hats and all those additional sounds that (in the past) have taken up so much of an artist's time during production?

do you pitch down bass and baritone vocalists that will be working with you or just record them and see what happens during this revolutionary frequency taming process?

no.

rephrase the question...

are you being cynical ? (or sarcastic?)

mixing tip#4...
take a break... you deserve it....
your eardrums are probably slightly fractured...
and will never hear certain frequencies again...
in the future... you'll have to pretend you understand what good audio sounds like...
just so you can still make a living.. (being really half-deaf already)
thank god for those presets you made when you could still hear....

but nevermind all that now... we're jumping ahead again...
drink a cup of coffee ... smoke a blunt.. .and get back to work...
