💥🎶LVL UP Your Production Chops🎶💥 INSTANTLY
From your pre amp, to your DAW It's super important to have the right amount of gain. 💯
You want the signal to be in the high green, or at a level of -18dBFS (0 on a VU), if you're freaky. 😆
Drag all faders btw -5 or 6 db after for safety.
📀Chill wit The EQ
Software EQs are super fun🔥🔥 but there's a catch. Linear phase EQs allow changes with 0 latency, but in return introduces Phase Shift (more on that later) which will make your song elements sound trash due to destructive interference. 🤮
So, chill with the EQs, don't be like me and find out the hard way. 😅
Make your 🥁 tracks more realistic by shifting drum hits a few samples earlier, or later than the beat. This will give you more groove in your rhythms (i.e. The J. Dilla effect).
📀Stereo Bus Compression
This is the art of adding compression your track in stages. 🎛 Treat your individual tracks as needed, and create groups: all drums, instruments, fx, vocals, etc in their own respective aux. Then introduce suddle (DECREASING) instances of compression at this stage --> group all tracks, and use some more compression. Group the groups --> add a last stage of comp to glue it all together. Like this, it's easier to control the mix, and to make your mixes super loud, yet dynamic.
Don't be the guy/gal who says, "New Music Coming," for three damn years. 😕 The whole fun of being an artist is finding the audience that vibes with you, just cause some don't doesn't mean you're trash. So stop overthinking ur 🎶. Just do it.
📀Less is More
Digital recording gives us an infinite amount of tracks to work with, but less is more. Don't destroy your song with too many melodic ideas at once -- Yea, it'll be a wall of sound, but elaborated simplicity is infinitely more complex.
