Mission - Cakewalk Vibe!

Recommended Posts

First time DAW user, second song on Cakewalk -  Vibe Pt1 Mission - I have been bitten with the cakewalk vibe well and truly, i even bought addictive drums 2 , can't wait to start my next song. I've fished 5 now  in less than 6 months learning the software which is totally awesome. I'm developing a style for sound tracks i think. Mixing and mastering improving so thanks for help guys. happy new year!

I have bits of experience with music, just never used a DAW only a old 8 track since 2014 to learn on, then i got the bug and cakewalk got me vibing !

Last couple of tracks,  I've started using more of the cakewalk EQ on each track and on some tracks i am using more compression, with the limiter No6. i put the odd bit of reverb on with some tracks, ive not felt the need to use much saturate if any but ive got a couple of more plugins since this song. 

I've now got better of understanding the levels, headroom and still experimenting is the reality.  I started using TDR Nova EQ to find tune any track for certain wanted or unwanted frequency.  I've got a nice little fundamental bass plugin for bass and sub to play with for the thud! I use the odd bit of style dial FX now to get the sound i want. To sets of headphones for testing with my monitor speakers to.

I was doing Mastering using Cakewalk on the master channel and not exporting the bounce to do mastering in a separate master project!  Having loads of tracks open was to busy and less user friendly, so i recently change the way i do things, its been a massive learning curve with everything,  just getting the interface stable and ive never used midi programming drums etc so mastering learning as go along! 

I now change since this second song. Iv'e setup a mastering template, so i now export the bonce mix i am happy with, then open in my mastering  template so i can see the dynamic range, also its better than  having loads of tracks open, did a quick screen grab to show difference of bounce mix and master dynamics.  My template i've built up now with diffrent style settings etc again using  cakewalk  EQ , comp, sat and the limiter No6, ive used the LoudMax 64bit too. So i am still learning mastering but its got loads better but much room for improvement but i prefer being creative with my music and the tech stuff bogs me down!

Well done on your  DAW work.
This has a Frankie Goes To Hollywood vibe to it.

"take off some highs on guitar."  Yes - UNLESS that is the sound they were after. Personally I like it, and the whole track is killer!  GJ!

Ok, so far Casting Spells is my favorite, but that doesn't take anything away from this, just Spells is more in my "wheelhouse".

Again, very interesting sonically and visually.

👍
