Back to work after a holiday…20 songs in the queue and more coming! To be honest, I was already spending the weekend mixing and mastering some hip hop from Washington, DC.
To kick off the year, I wanted to drop a piece of some good basic info on “How loud should my mix be peaking before submitting it to mastering?” as that gets asked a lot, and there’s a lot of misinformation around.
Can you make your music sound perfect with a laptop? Yes, absolutely.
Is outboard and/or analog gear necessary to make your music sound good? Absolutely not at all. We can put that myth to a grave.
Is one better than the other? No.
I’m showing how degrading the sample rate of a sound can be used to boost the clarity of a sound in the mix and have it cut through the mix better.
This can be done using any DAW: you only need a sample rate reducer.
I decided that I’d do more videos this year on audio stuff – mixing, mastering, production, engineering – because that’s my thing and that’s what I do every single day anyways, so why not share the knowledge as much as I can whenever I have the time.
