  2. I am from the old school of engineers when everything was tape, etc. During this era, there was a problem called 'crosstalk' that would invade your mix if the heads were not aligned correctly... it is when one track bleeds over into the track beside it. This is not supposed to happen in the digital realm, but.... I was doing a setup for a mixdown, setting up a kick>bass gtr 'duck' compressor to make the drums a bit more aggressive beside the bass. I set up my sends on the kick, snare, and HiHat tracks going to the sidechain on the bass compressor at the appropriate levels and noticed that during a part where I had enveloped the drums out at a certain point for the bass to ride with a keyboard part, that the drums were still peaking through onto the bass track. This confused me as digital should have no crosstalk. I began sorting out the 'equal likelihood division' troubleshooting and realized that it was coming from the drum sends that were set on 'pre' to the sidechain bass duck compressor. Then I realized that it must be the attack time as it was set to less than 0.4 msec, so I raised the attack time to 0.7 and this stopped the crosstalk of the drum peaks through the bass track. No matter how many years you have produced material, there is no end to the learning... AIN'T IT GREAT!! Hope this helps someone else in our little world of sound. If you have a similar experience that might help us, please don't be ashamed to let the rest of us in on it. I'm sure many of us could use your knowledge. Have a great day!!!

  7. Hi I use fl studio to create some Synth lines and then export them as waves to Cakewalk. We use Cakewalk with these backing tracks on my band rehearsals. MY PROBLEM: Track levels are very different from song to song and we need to adjust LEVELS everytime we start a song. I realised that the exported waves are not consistent regarding to LEVELS. MY QUESTION: What are the optimal (or maximum) LEVEL a wave should be exported for Cakewalk mixing? ALSO: What are the maximum LEVEL the Master Output should be? Thank you.

  9. Hi I'm looking for some advice.. I'm working on a collaboration doing vocals. We have 20 - 30 songs nearly completed. My collaborator has been using cakewalk for 15 years but he has not created an master bus for any of the songs but the mixes sound amazing. I created a master bus and suddenly the mix sounds horrible and very different. (There are no plugins on the master bus I created) Question: Is this normal for cakewalk users? Is it absolutely necessary to create a master bus? Do you know what's going on here? Peace Bob

  13. Hey there. I'm a new producer trying to make some music on Cakewalk for the first time. I've been enjoying it so far but I have one issue I don't understand. I am using Komplete Control for some drum plug-ins and it has been pretty simple so far, aside from one issue. When I make multiple tracks for each piece of my drum loop, the playback will overlay each plugin effect even though only 1 effect is selected in that track. I don't know if this is an issue only I have or if I have messed up using my plug-in correctly. I'd love some help on this issue. Thanks!

  19. I'm an amateur MIDI musician who started composing in the 90's. Using Voyetra Digital Orchestrator, I created General MIDI tracks strictly within the confines of my PC: simply drawing notes into the Piano Roll, no live instruments or external hardware. I knew nothing about mixing; I just created the tracks, effects/controllers, set volume levels and called it done. Needless to say, when I listen to these tracks now, I could've done much better. Twenty+ years later, I work in Sonar/Cakewalk in the very same manner as above. Synths used: TTS-1, Studio Instruments, Session Drummer, Cakewalk Sound Center, and Addictive Drums 2. I'm not a professional musician...I just simply wish to create the melodies I hear in my head. Target audience is the casual listener. I live in a small apartment environment which isn't suitable for acoustically-treated walls or a large assortment of equipment. However, once I get further along, I may purchase an audio interface and studio speakers/headphones. Otherwise, I have to work with what I have and be happy with it. That being said, I will explain my experiences the best way I can. I've recently begun the process of remixing my old MIDI songs in today's DAW. Having started in Sonar but also experienced in Studio One, I feel my place is in Sonar/Cakewalk. However, the drastic evolution and advancement in digital music software has left me consistently overwhelmed and questioning my processes. I've sat on this project for over six years, because I constantly get frustrated, annoyed, second guessing, overthinking -- and repeatedly abandoning the project to start up again. But now I feel determined and motivated to keep pushing, do it right and finish some day. To the point: I've watched countless videos on mixing, volume levels, gain staging, and the like. I've taken notes of everything I learned, especially things that I can't find in the Manuals, documenting it in my personal reference guide. But I'm still confused, unprepared, and unsure of what I'm doing, worried about doing everything wrong. I seek guidance and education to help get my projects off the ground without fear of messing up. To begin, here's my understanding of the gain staging process: Set every channel's fader volume at 0db. Begin setting track volume using the console's Gain knob, staying below -12db to -18db. Implement each track's plug-ins/effects. (I don't use EQ or compression, as these techniques are beyond my comprehension.) At some point, I intend to bounce these tracks to audio to preserve them. (Before/after step #2? And how do I convert the audio back to MIDI?) When the mixing is complete, set fader levels accordingly, preventing clipping. I'll have to export and store my finished projects in both raw and final formats without losing any plug-ins...I have no idea how. All my TTS-1 instrument tracks are gradually upgraded to SI Instruments, Sound Center, etc. Problem is, these other "synthtruments" are about 15-25% louder than TTS-1 instruments. But when I lower that track's Gain knob, the instrument becomes muddy, muffled, and distorted, and the Gain knob has reached a horrendously ridiculous level (< 50/60%). I've also heard that I can raise that synth's volume level to compensate lowering the Gain knob too much. (But by how much?) The entire gain staging process has gotten me so conflicted and rattled that I don't know how do it right. On the other hand, I've seen articles that suggest simply ignoring the gain staging hype (don't worry about that Gain knob) and focus solely on preventing clipping throughout the entire process. So, my biggest pain point is to gain stage/not gain stage...and that darn Gain knob. Properly balancing the volume levels without misusing the Gain knob. I don't think I even want to use that anymore. Can I create a balanced mix without even using the console's Gain knobs, and just use the faders in the end of the process? I know every musician's routine is a subjective personal preference, but I'm having a great deal of trouble establishing a process that works for me...after all, still an amateur. Because of the complexity, this project is literally taking me forever because I can't make a decision. CONCLUSION I apologize for the rambling, as I have to lay out all the details. It could be said that, after so many years, I clearly have no business making music and perhaps should be pursuing other hobbies. But I truly feel I can do this. It's been complicated, but I'm thankful for several users here on the Forums who've answered so many of my questions in the past as I work on these projects. Therefore, I hope for some insight to get me going with confidence and hopefully more education. I could really use some help here, and dumb it down if you have to. Please provide your thoughts and guidance to above? Thanks in advance!

  23. Mixing vocals can be easy if you just know the right approach. Today, we are going to use EQ, Compression, and even some nice extras to get a vocal to set on top of a mix. What is EQ? It stands for Equalization. This is a term that describes what an EQ is doing, it is literally making things equal. In other words, if you have an offending frequency that is built up in the vocal, you can grab an EQ to make that frequency more pleasent to hear by turning it down.
