Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

The Loudness trend while "mastering" (pushing loudness) is currently going down. Check out one of the previous posts (see above) - the loudest streaming service for the time being (SPOTIFY Loud) uses -11 LUFS ILk (which feels about -8,5dB RMS avg/Dorrough specs) - and that is "on the fly" (as in, b...

Here comes my update with a refined vocal/guitar tone and balance, a little parallel devil loc on snare and if those toms aren't underwater I don't know what is :) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MB3kxYMXNslguf2TJqwxWk6Z27BSJJ-5/view?usp=sharing Sorry, no video, I don't have any skills/tools for th...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

I don't know which hardware meter you're using. But I assume it's based around traditional "PPM". "True Peak" is an "over sampled" and then "estimated" value - and this is where one of the big issues reside, indeed. True Peak is the only "meter" from modern standards, that has the biggest drift dur...

great one again, everything clear and balanced, dry and punchy
(as a pure matter of taste, I preferred more midrange in the vocals)
it rocks

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

First and foremost: Let’s keep this a happy place and have a conversation instead of bashing others! And don’t take a place like this for granted, insulting the person who „runs this shit“. The same person could simply say „screw you ladies and gents“ and flip the off switch. There is no „right for ...

Hi, this was interesting and more challeging than I initially thought. I did so much I could write till dawn, but then I'd miss the deadlime :) Mission was simple: let's put some energy into this place, as H.P. Baxxter would say. I tried my best to do exactly that. There is a lot going on in the arr...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

First and foremost it is not my intention to discredit any of the educational background. I think we both are doing this long enough to know how important proper gain staging is. -18 dbFS as 0 VU is a good recommendation being the agreed upon standard here in Europe (I think you mentioned that). How...

Hi, thanks for the Song! When I listended to the rough I thought 70s, when I checked out Rosanna I thought 80s. I think the recordings have some kind of 70s vibe in it, so I tried to bring that out, but give it a more modern and spacious appearance. Drums got quantized but not to perfection, because...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

Ok, I also got disqualified, but because of too many LUFSs. I will obey next time, but I have to say that I don’t think this is helping anyone. What does that have to do with anything other than housekeeping? Why -16? At least make it -14 which is the most relevant level nowadays (Spotify). YouTube,...
