  • I think there's an interesting balance to be had between clarity and what some people call "glue" as well. A mix that is too clean and clear can sound sterile, and I think that's why the sound of tape is still popular - it is audibly less clear than…
  • @dendy said: generally you should put sharp (at least 36dB) hipass filter on everything around 140-160hz, or even higher.. which is not kick or bass .. ideally not exactly same frequency on all tracks of course, because every filter has little "b…
  • @Trigger_the_Monkey said: Very cool! You've done well, and great to see collaboration here I'd like to hear that guitar up a little more as well. It just seems to be hiding at the moment. I'd also try EQing to have a little less ba…
  • @peanut_gallery said: Side note: Just a few weeks ago I got a LEGO kit for D.VA (that LEGO was now doing Overwatch caught me totally by surprise), and the mech now watches over me as I'm working on music. My kids are jealous!
  • @dendy said: sidechain is magic .. there are genres where it's use is more obvious (like you mentioned EDM), but it is very useable basically everywhere - sometimes you just need to make it more subtle, not so obvious on first look .. bud sidecha…
  • @dendy thanks again for your tips, I've made a new mix where I use the kick as a sidechain to duck the bass (I found that just compressing the bass rather than the whole music group was enough actually). https://www.dropbox.com/s/nrms4w7ybj3lmqa/…
  • The mech in the graphic is D.VA from Overwatch, a game that I've spent many fun hours playing with my kids You've definitely nailed the happy poppy vibe with this one, it's positively bursting with it. I think I agree that the piano could come d…
  • Funky track with a very raw and aggressive drum sound, gives the whole thing a real edge.
  • Love that bass!

  • @Cray23 said: @richardyot I am not here to comment much on mixing, I’m not good at it I think:) but this piece of yours I like probably most so far, that moogish bass is that obsidian? and that updated version sounds quite good to me. Nice work …
  • @Arpseechord said: @richardyot said: Thanks for the feedback, I've tweaked the mix by reducing and high-passing the drum reverb, and I've also dialled down the bus compression ratio to 1.4 to 1, so hopefully the drums will be crispe…
  • @dendy thanks very much for this, I will take it all back to Auria and experiment with your suggestions. I have the tracks grouped in Auria so I can do the sidechaining there without it affecting the vocals which are in their own groups.
  • @dendy said: what do you think about this ? did small master (a bit of EQ-ing and sidechain compression big kick) https://www.dropbox.com/s/6prbfjxn4wxk2hx/richardyot_master.wav?dl=0 Wow - thanks for taking the time to do this! The…

  • @dendy said: i would remove reverb from drums... or at least i would put it just very short, almost unoticeable, just adding some presence to drums. Now it is making drums too much airy, they feel like they do not belomg to rest of track... or, a…
  • @Arpseechord said: Cool song Richard! I’ve given it a thorough listen and just a few of my cents advice I’d like to hear the drums have that biting quality it has at the beginning of the song to continue throughout, I find it gets a little …
  • Not easily at this point in time. Audio tracks are coming and then it should be possible. No ETA though.
  • Already answered on the Audiobus forum, but this is due to the wonky sustain pedal support in NS2.
  • @LeeB said: Really nice easy listening track and a full sounding mix. Nice bass and drums, well mixed too. I like the vocal sound you’re getting on the choruses. Are you doubling up or using some type of vocal effect? Thanks! On the…
  • Thanks! The guitar is from Beathawk (the Nylon Guitar in the Baroque IAP pack), but I'm tempted to record a real guitar part for it, to add a couple of slides in there and give it a more guitar-like phrasing.
  • Nice tune, I like the way it doesn't sound to dancey even though it's all built with very EDM-ish apps.
  • @dendy said: @Stiksi said: This has been requested a bunch of times, also by me. I don’t know what its status is, I don’t think it’s been mentioned lately. If there’s a lot of interest, I could use that to argue the point further. 👍…
  • @Shabudua said: Also, since all the keys are identically white no matter which scale you’re using, there’s no quick way to locate your root key. Most similar iOS keyboards will shade either your root key, or the sharps/flats, to give you visual c…

  • Toneboosters Barricade is available on the phone - I would say it's almost as good as FabFilter's Pro L 2: it can provide an average LUFS reading of a whole track. The display is a smidge better in the FabFilter but in terms of functionality Barrica…
