  • 5 minutes to a better mix

    So, this is not a tutorial made by me, and it is certainly not ambient focused, BUT there are some gems and nuggets of gold in there that most certainly may be of use for anyone working within the sonic realm.

    Also, be sure to check out his YouTube channel, he has got some nice videos there on the more philosophical side of music production
    Enjoy!

    This is awesome. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Watched the first video...noticed right away that he's using the "submix" technique that I mentioned in my own mixing tutorial...nice! Some very good tips in here...bookmarked and will be going back to them in the coming days.

    Again, great post!

      Yes, I noticed that also it is a good technique, what I usually do though is to write (and mix, as I do this continuously as I write) at a peak level of about -14dB (look into Bob Katz's "K-System") and has my monitors tuned so that -14 is a pleasant listening level. this way I will have to work pretty hard if I am to get the master to clip problem with this way is that the level is always tuned for low volume audio, and not all audio out there is peaking at -14, -12 dB...

        So I tried this out. I only watched a part of all these videos but the results are amazing :listening:

        On my last track I turned the master channel to mono during the whole creation- an mixing-process of the track.
        At the end when I came to mastering I turned it back to stereo ... and wow!

        It's really worth to try it out :thumbsup:

            The video has some good advice.

            I joined the site a few months back, but unsubbed as the daily 3-4 emails about the same thing were annoying.

              Not sure if you joined the site to be able to watch the videos? Anyway, the videos are public and the good thing is: the series got expanded with two extra series so there's 90+ video's to watch now. I have to admit: not everything is applicable (or less) to ambient but there is some nice advice to be found.

                just realized this is an old thread--I think I signed up to get the pdf on mixing or something, but I was lead there by this very thread.

                    I did the same:-) ANd got a bunch of emails each day. But its great stuff though and quite simple to implement.

                      Yeah, I unsubbed from the list eventually, but the guy does know what he is talking about--he just talks an awful lot about it. :biggrin:
