    Awakening My Soul

    Cheers B, im getting into my pushing drum beats and bass at the moment, working on another one, they great for me to review when im out on mountain bike, if they keep me going up the hills i know they ok haha
  2. I worked as a sound engineer for ITV and been in quite a few film and music studios. They all have different gear and were told by "them" to get this or that. Many studios etc bought gear the shop basically wanted to get rid off because they get stuck with old stock etc Speakers will last forever if your not pumping them over 70% all the time. People now go crazy over old gear, especially valve or and pre amps. Here is my ten bobs worth. We train our ears to what ever we are using and only notice a difference when we compare. We can only hear 20 Hz to 20 kHz when we was probably under 30. Everyone listens to music we produce on different headphones and speakers (*Audio equipment) so how does our system effect that, it doesn't its our ears. I know people with great gear that can't mix, produce and ear for sh*t. Get what works for you, what your ears like and can separate ranges to mix and master the way you want. Its like musicians some prefer a fender over a Gibson. Some of the best will only mix and master with headphones and not separate amps and speakers or monitors. Whatever system you change to will take time to train your ears to the end product, so get something your happy with and then you'll be happy.

    Awakening My Soul

    I always spend quite a bit of time on programming beats, updating with improvements when I'm mixing and getting the right sound design. I normally separate my drums with, tops (hi hat, crash & ride etc) so i can EQ, then mids (snare toms etc) track for fills and kick the same with EQ compression etc but i will have 2 or 3 separate drum fx tracks running parallel for ambience, noise, impacts etc and any other samples as might run a sub with kick or industrial thud.

    Weapons of War

    Yes, i follow you on them all. So many people on this forum you think would do each other a favour and follow on Youtube etc which obviously to help ranking exposure. I think many are old school and don't understand how it works though to be fair. I don't push any of my platforms yet and i should have but been busy with everything else. Unfortunately lets face it, YouTube, Facebook and Spotify want money is the reality for adds. You can manually push with social media groups etc but like you say hard work. I think the best way is doing a live video everyday and talking bollox about something, people seem to like that haha
  12. half price on black friday then lol

    Weapons of War

    i get carried away sometimes with production so it could be me was expecting a few more things on fire ahah. You have some great triggers, it stands out to me something like the lyric "war drums" which welcomes in a fuller drum beat to kick in on that bit, which is clever production sometimes but works. The great lead guitar at the ends when you hang off the notes, i would try automation with delay or maybe more reverb only on theose notes noit through all the lead guitar, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

    Weapons of War

    When you say "war drums" i was expecting some war drum beat to come in a push instead of the same 4/4, just an idea, not a criticism. I think on some of the cymbals clashes i would try and hit the kick at same time has clash to give it more thud, maybe. The breaks with the rhythm riff, i probably give it a bit more crunch saturation because its the weapons of war that need some destruction i think. On the lead solo at end all the backing instruments stay the same level and panning, i would swish or wave them about, maybe give some width (EQ) so lead comes down the middle to give more dynamics, again maybe bit more destruction sound on lead guitar and maybe its begging for tad of delay, which you could automate when you hang off those notes because that's a great led work and some great lyrics. So maybe worth bit more experimental on production.

    Awakening My Soul

    haha Cheers, my YouTube get very little views but oddly a couple of songs had a few, the songs i don't like haha I spend much more time doing music than video and i don't do lives etc. I think you need to do live videos and chats like Mike at Creative Sauce to build a following. Maybe i should do some general music videos on production tips on my soapbox but id end up doing less music... Iv'e got to sort a email list out for when i release a song on Youtube but the mail list platforms charge silly money these days. i did a real old song called "silence is deafening" or it was the chorus i cant remember.

    Thanx a lot Larry for the comment. Iv'e pretty much got mixing and mastering to a good level. I did work for ITV master control room doing pre-post sound production, so i have a good understanding. Yes, music is a personal preference, i try to do my own thing, sometimes I'm in a bombast mood and sometimes emotional feel, its all a learning experience. P

    Nice fat bassline... with a few surprises
  23. Yes Objeq delay and VX64 strip are the only two plugins i have audio dropouts and glitch's with. I know lots of people do so i just work round it. I don't use Objeq delay much and VX64 strip is ok if you don't have it on to many tracks
  24. Youtube wouldn't let you comment ?
  25. Yes i don't think there is anything going to be any better, seems i found a little gem there, it is just not sold at pluginboutique which is my account i use so probably a direct buy
