Thank you...it’s more then a song for us, it’s a summation of 2018 for each one of us as a band. You guys brought us back up and welcomed us with open arms. So, thank you, the next chapter starts now... #longislandbands #iignite #theselessonslearned #spotify #
Instead of led lighting I’ll just get 6 more of these to get the control room #vibes
Kick and bass fighting each other Try this technique great for any genre with a lot of low end information. Let’s say this is a rock song. Make an insert for a compressor that has a sidechain function on your bass guitar. Then make an aux send that only the kick drum is on and select that as the key input. You want a high threshold And fast attack and decently short release so the bass guitar ducks down a db or 2 when the kick drum hits. This lets the kick drum cut through your mix without losing the balance you have. If you’ve never used a sidechain the signal doesn’t go in that track. A sidechain is a function that lets you effect a track based off the signal of a aux/bus signal of your choice. You can even play with attack and release times for effects in other styles of music.
We had a great time at The RailRoad Inn on Saturday!
Spend your Saturday night with us at The Rail in Valley Stream!
Very short sneak peak clip of last night’s mix session for @mikecampi . He’s a very talented new singer songwriter I’ve had the pleasure of working and making an ep with. can’t wait until this is completed and everyone can hear more
#tiptuesday vocal processing trick! If you have a dull vocal part duplicate the track then distort and heavily compress the new track while pushing the area you think needs more. Example if it’s flabby lows, filter out highs and push the lows, if it’s a presence issue push the mids, etc. you want an exaggerated overloaded sound. Then, tastefully blend this distorted, mangled track with the original vocal to taste and you should have a much better sound. Great for adding definition, depth, or presence to a track while adding a layer of control of having fader levels to blend and automate.
Book December or January with insane specials for the next week. DM me for more info and let’s make some great tunes!
#tiptuesday time. Have you tried to group similar sounds into a pre master bus I find that it increases my speed and control over parts. For example, if someone says the drums aren’t loud enough in a mix if they’re right there on a single fader to change and automate. I also like to process backup vocals on a busbso they feel more cohesive as well. This is also beneficial if you recorded a string quartet with 6+ mics and created a bus where they all came together so you could easily have general control and processing power on the strings without committing to bouncing them onto a 2 track and losing the ability for finer adjustments.
