Produce Like A Pro – Panning, Mastering and Balancing Harmonies | FAQ Friday

How do you balance harmonies? I think the answer to that is “What are you going for?” If the music is relatively sparse, I like the harmonies to sit around it. If there are 4 other voices going on, I might go relatively far left and right and then a little narrower around the vocal. It sort of encompasses the vocal. Questions answered in this weeks FAQ Friday: • What db level do you normally bounce out of protools for a master? • How do you balance harmonies? A third…

Produce Like A Pro – Song Transitions, High Passing & Drum Samples | FAQ Friday

In music you might have two very different tracks. Maybe one’s a huge rock track (or a massive EDM song) and then it goes into a really beautiful, kind of open acoustic ballad. An interstitial can be that dissolve. Something that helps it go from one to another. Most of the time the clever clever stuff is not done in the mix stage- yes, it’s created in the mix stage, but the mastering engineer is the person that does that. The great thing about leaving it with a mastering engineer…

Produce Like A Pro – Mix and Master for the listener – Loudness Normalization with Carlo Libertini

Mix and Master for the listener – Loudness Normalization: Thanks to digital technology in audio production today, the “volume” of something became more of a choice over the years, and that choice was always more. More low end, more high end, more tracks, more loudness etc. A choice that was all a little to tempting (and easy) to make for kind mix engineers everywhere.
