That's why people compress vocals and drums to tape--they're very dynamic, transient-prone instruments. Originally posted by Juicy J how do u master a song when its done? If it's your stuff, you should be able to fix in the mix tracking, etc. I have the same Dynamics Processing in Audition 2. It's the exact same playing, only in a different track. If you didn't adjust frequencies before the limiting stage, do so lightly for final adjustments to the mix.Next
After you have mixed both parts, mix them all down together without tha beat. However, 32 bit does extend dynamic range somewhat and may be worth the conversion if you have ample hard disk space and you are familiar with noise shaping curves and dithering selections. But either way, start lowering it and again pay attention to what is happening. Next go to effects and pick amplitude and amplify. As a starting point, add the following plug-ins to the Mastering Rack in this order: 1.Next
I will show you how to remove noise out your vocals, so they can sound clean, and studio produced. What you should do is send me the songs and I'll masterize them for you tho right on and hell ya to both of those offers Very appreciated man To get a professional finalized sound you have to do three things in this order: 1. There are only about 3 gazillion home engineers out there. Click it, and highlight very fast attack, and click ok. Because one setting greatly effects every other setting, etc.Next
Always have your bass guitar centered. But putting that aside, you have any advice to certain things I should be doing to these finalized tracks, certain effects or eq things or anything for that matter, to help get them sounding better and closer to industry standards? Click the get profile from selection button, and then click close. Mentally establish the energy and feel of the finished product without actually hearing it. When playing all tracks at once, it sounds like a decent full song. Thanks for taking the time out to explain all this stuff to a newb at this recording stuff Very appreciated D said: Oh boy, mastering is such a complex issue.
This software was designed to provide an easy way of mixing different tracks with easy functions and an intuitive interface. What gives songs that nice professional feel is compressors. You may want to do some Internet searches and find out more about mastering. I hope you take the time to read through this and hope it's somewhat understandable. You are talking about a whole other world of audio. Double click the vocals to highlight it all.Next
If you boost your signal too much, you will hear audible artifacts; though, depending on your tastes, you may decide to include these artifacts. It's very clean and easy to use. By all means use a brick wall limiter to make your mix louder, but listen to see if it's starting to make your mix a mushy mess; loudness can be initially impressive. Next go to effects and pick amplitude and amplify. If you begin at 24 bit or higher, do not convert your material until the final stage of production.Next
Record one rhythm track, and then record a second new rhythm track and try to play as exact as possible. Once you get to learn Cubase you'll love it, everyone I know that uses it does. In the past I've eq'd all so each track have similar balance, sometimes it sounded good, sometimes I took the life out of it. Another thing--no one judges an artist's sketch pad--so don't be hard on yourself when trying out new ideas and don't listen to closely to criticism. So you say it adds only volume when doing it that way, but doesn't it essentially do the same thing when you do it the way I used to do it? I've read about some filters I have to apply but I'm not sure the proper values or presets. In fact, the better you do step 1, the easier step 2 is, likewise your proficiency at recording and mixing determines how good your master can be. Another option would be , the updated version of this application with an improved performance and more features added such as a better use of software plugins.Next
Step 5 - Now that your settings are right in the ballpark, it's a simple matter of tweaking it a bit. Quote: adamj said: hmm I use adobe audition 2. This is pretty much the Cool Edit Version of Adobe Audition's but takes the professionality out of the the way you do it. Posted on Mar 10, 2010 12:10 am Member Since: Jan 09, 2010 Hey Everyone, I just recently got Cool Edit Pro 2. I mixed them all when it sounded done, opened it up in another session, used the remove his option again and adjusted volume.
