    So often these days we are writing and producing tracks as we go.

    There’s nothing wrong with that at all and in many ways it mirrors what a lot of great bands did to create some of the most amazing albums of all time!

    Today I’d like to examine one song I wrote (with the Artist), produced, played most of the instruments and mixed at my own studio.

    The song is ‘Shoot You Down’ by Little Empire.

    To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the Recording Revolution, I’d like to share with you the top 5 mixing tutorials I’ve done over the years.

    1. Mixing in Mono -

    This is an old tip from audio school that I thought never made sense, but when I started using it years later - I realised how much it could help a mix!

    2. The Low-End Mix Trick -

    This is a trick I learned in France in an in-depth workshop with Jacquire King, and it’ll show you how to get the low end of your mix in its perfect sweet spot

    3. Vocal Air Trick In Mixing -

    If you want your vocals to have that polished “air” found in modern pop, rock, and country records, this trick is for you

    4. 5 Minutes To A Better Mix: LCR Panning -

    Just following this tip alone will give you the wide, clear mixes that you’ve always wanted. It’s not exactly the panning tip that people want to hear, but trust me - it’s a great hack to get your mixes sounding right.

    5. How To Master A Song In 10 Minutes -

    Mastering might seem like a dark art to most people, but it’s quite simple to do inside your DAW, and you don’t need an entire mastering suite of plugins to do it.

    In this video, I show you how to do it in just a few minutes!

    ???? Get better mixes by this weekend. Plug this FREE 5-Step Mix process into your system and get ready for great results ????


    Home Studio Corner:

    #Mixing #HomeStudioCorner



    Producers make beats WAY too loud and leave no room for head room and dynamics. This is why your 808 isn't hitting hard and the reason you can't feel your beats. You can have your 808 and kick hit without everything into the red. If you try not to clip the individual mixer channels and only aim to distort/clip the master, you'll change the way your beats sound.

    Leaving headroom is important if you want people to FEEL the beat and hear the nuance!

  • 11 Mistakes To Avoid In Music Production - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro


    ➡️➡️Learn more about avoiding music production mistakes here:

    Over the years the producer's role has changed dramatically. There was a time when a music producer was essentially the person that oversaw everything and put the whole production together.

    That's not the production we have now, these days the job of a music producer is so vast that it covers pretty much everything. As a producer, you can be expected to also be the engineer, mixer, songwriter, therapist, the record label, co-promoter, social media manager and all kinds of fun and less than fun things.

    However, that does create a lot of grey areas and it’s in this grey area that things can fall apart horribly. So let’s talk about the top mistakes made by music producers and how to avoid them.

  • Top 5 Mixing Mistakes No One Talks About


    ➡️➡️Click here to learn more about the mixing mistakes no one talks about & download the cheat sheet:

    1.EQ with your Ears NOT your Eyes!

    Always make EQ moves based on what you hear first, not what you see! Using EQs with Frequency Analysers can be such a rewarding thing when you’re looking for a frequency that’s bothering you, but relying on visual cues alone to make EQ adjustments will not give you great results. Just because there’s a peak doesn’t mean it has to be removed, that might the inherent characteristic of the instrument. When you hear something that bothers you and you need a visual cue to find it then a frequency analyzer is an amazing tool!

    2.You Don’t Need to Compress Everything

    Not everything needs to be compressed! So many virtual sounds, fat synth sounds and of course very heavy guitars will not benefit from compression and often sound much smaller with added compression. Live drums give you a wealth of not only different dynamics and uneven EQ based on how they are performed and so they require more compression than programmed drums that have been recorded in perfect conditions with very evenly sampled drum hits. Compression (especially vintage units or emulations) can be used for certain colours, adding saturation and even an EQ characteristic, however, as a dynamic controller you should focus using it on overly dynamic sounds like Vocals and other acoustic instruments, while using it sparingly on instruments that have a very limited dynamics range but may require some added colouration that compression may bring.

    3.Not Everything Has To Be Stereo

    When everything is in stereo, overheads, pianos, room mics, reverbs, delays, stereo recorded guitars, you name it, then nothing starts to feel wide! If you want width then be selective what you put in the sides! Hard panned guitars Left and Right feel great when the ambience is only opposite, as soon as it’s smeared in the stereo field then the guitar sound doesn’t feel focussed! If you make the overheads full 100% left and right then you set the limits of the width of your mix, try 70% or 80% panning of your overheads and room mics and then the hard panned guitars will start to feel like they are spilling out of the left and right speakers!

    4.Don’t Start Processing The Tracks Until You’ve Got Basic Levels and Panning

    Create what you think is a good sounding rough mix getting basic balances and panning on every track first. This will tell you so much more than just starting to mix using EQ and compression. Hearing the tracks back relatively balanced and panned, allows you to choose which tracks need extra EQ or high passing and/or compression. Ultimately the lesson is to always listen as a whole! We all solo, however making sure the changes you are making works in the whole song is of paramount importance!

    5.Do Less!!

    Professional mixers always say that when they get sessions to mix and the first thing they do is remove an enormous amount of plug ins on each track and suddenly the song starts to come to life! We can tie ourselves in so many knots by continually adding EQ and compression until everything instrument feels flat and lifeless! Soon the more you do the more you have to do! Take frequent ear breaks to gain perspective and always remember to listen to the song as a whole.

    About this Video:
    In this video Miguel Ogas show his 5th part to the home recording studio setup for beginners series. With a home recording studio home recording studio setup is essential. This is the secret that I use in my home recording studio and is one of the best music production secrets. Mixing in mono is the secret. Mixing in mono in Ableton or any other DAW is amazing. The classic mono mixing speaker is the Auratone 5C super sound cube. Auratone speakers are valuable and also rare so you need to look for Auratone alternatives. The avantone pro active mixcube is my choice. The auratone 5c vs avantone sound similar and are both effective. This is why they have been essential in building my home recording studio.

    Part 7 of 7 - Mixing with compression is critical to getting a good sounding mix, and yet there are so many ways to screw it up!

    Today I want to share with you the 3 biggest mistakes I see home studio owners making (and I've made all three) when it comes to compression and how you can avoid them.

  • Headroom 101: How to use Gain Staging for a Better Mix | LANDR Mix Tips #7


    What is headroom? Headroom is how much room your audio signal has before it starts to get compressed and distorted.

    Every recording medium has a finite amount of headroom. If you try to record a signal that’s louder than what the medium is capable of handling, it will clip the tops of the waveform and you’ll hear that as distortion.

    Good headroom in recording means that your levels are in the “sweet spot” range for the recording medium.

    That sweet spot is the perfect balance between a system’s noise floor and clipping point.

    Today’s digital recording software has an extremely low noise floor, but headroom still matters.

    You need good Headroom for your mixes to sound the best they can.

    Your DAW has an impressive dynamic range, but you still have to convert your signal to analog to hear it.

    Bad headroom affects the way your AD/DA converters handle what comes in and out.

    Record too low and you’re fighting the noise floor. Record too high and you push things into distortion and clipping.

    The key to getting the right headroom is gain staging. A good rule of thumb is to equate -18dBFS with the analog standard of 0dBVU.

    If you keep your peaks hitting not much above -10 dBFS, and keep the average level around -18 dBFS you should have a signal that’s right in the sweet spot.

    Just keep in mind that more dynamic instruments like drums or percussion might need more space as their signals can have very large peaks.

    Example: For this tutorial I’ll be tracking DI electric guitar. To get a precise overview of our levels, I’ll start by adding a meter plugin to the track.

    Right away I can see that my interface’s input is set too high. The guitarist’s loudest notes are peaking at -3 dBFS—not quite in the sweet spot.

    Before I record the part again, I’ll decrease the gain of the preamp until the signal falls into the range I want.

    Now the loudest notes are just touching -10 dBFS and the body of the signal is hovering around -18. That will give me great headroom for tracking.

    The need for proper gain staging doesn’t end when your tracks are recorded…

    As you process your audio with plugins during the mix, you’ll be affecting their levels.

    Compressor make-up gain, EQ boosts and cuts and other mixing processes are level-based operations.

    This means that they’re subject to proper gain staging as well.

    Maintaining the same practices of good gain staging that you use during recording is your best bet so -18dBFS is a good average level to aim for.

    Example: Now that we’ve recorded our guitar track with good headroom, we’ll add some compression.

    As I was adjusting the settings, I added makeup gain to account for the compressor’s gain reduction. To double check that I’ve maintained the right headroom I’ll add another instance of my meter plugin directly after the compressor.

    By comparing the two meters, we can see that I’ve gone a little bit overboard with the makeup gain. I’ll decrease the compressor’s output slightly to get back to the sweet spot.

    Good headroom is important for your sound. It’s also a great way to start thinking about your dynamics before mixing even starts.

    Use these tips to get headroom right on everything you record.

  • 5 Quick Reverb Mixing Tricks - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro


    ➡️ ➡️ Before you start using reverb, make sure you download this FREE Reverb Tricks cheatsheet right now:

    Trick 1: EQ your reverb: 4:09
    Trick 2: Pan Your reverbs: 6:54
    Trick 3: Trigger your Snare reverb from the sample: 8:54
    Trick 4: Use multiple reverbs on Vocals: 11:19
    Trick 5: Compress your reverb: 15:14

    Learning how to use reverb is essential in mixing. It can add width and distance between you instruments. Reverb can also make your tracks sound like they were recorded in a completely different space. This is particularly helpful if you are recording in a bedroom or small home studio environment and you want your tracks to have that big studio sound! The biggest mistake that you can make with reverb is going overboard and making a washy muddy sound mix where everything is smeared together in reverb.
