News for January 2010

january round-up … things i’ve learned today

january is almost gone and the deadline for the final mix of this years ep is coming to an end. and as i promised before, here is an update on how things develop.
i’ve been working for the last 7 hours non stop on the new tracks now and it’s funny how certain effects keep coming back ;) during the process. for example, the use of reverb to get certain instruments in a distance or to give them some space in the mix. especially if the unit offers the possibility to apply the effect on certain frequencies. i have never been a big fan of reverb but as it turns out it’s a pretty handy device once you got the hang of it. it does take some time though and some reading, if you prefer the academic type of learning or some experimenting, if you prefer learning by doing.

reverb

another thing i started doing today is preparing an info-sheet for each track and its parts. i figured this could come in handy for quickly taking notes of things that still need to be done/ changed. i used to do this before but the notes were completely random and there was no real system to it. this ended up in loads of notes scattered allover the place …
