I’m Having Problems With My Recording Equipment And Software. What Do I Do?
Recording gear is much more reliable than it was just a few years ago. That’s a great thing, but there’s one downside to it. People now seem to have a harder time when things do go wrong. The old timers here at RecordingReview.com have been doing this long enough that we know most tricks in the book. Just post a thread in Fixing Gear or Recording Software and we’ll fix you right up….hopefully. SMILIE
I Need Help With My Mixing
The bottom line is there is generally quite a deviation between the raw tracks and the final mix. That’s called “mixing”. The bad news is you have to directly compete with A-list ultra robo mixers when your song follows a big boy production. You local state champion dude is a stud, but he’d be embarrassed if he went up against the pros.
The good news is you can get direct feedback on your song/mix in Bash This Recording. I’ve seen mixes improve by absolutely incredible amounts. Especially for people doing their first mix, it’s unbelieveable how much can change in one forum thread. Use it!
