    "Messy" - stuck on the vocal mix

    Messy (Rough Vocal Mix) by Magindara | Free Listening on SoundCloud Hey everyone! Last March I posted to ask for feedback on a mix for my band's first single and you guys were all really helpful!

    Twinflames - struggling with bass and lead vocal

    Twinflames (rough Mix) by Magindara | Free Listening on SoundCloud This is a short clip from a new track I've been working on for a while. I'm pretty happy with the mix for the most part but I've been having big issues with getting the bass and (especially) the lead vocal to sit right. I feel...

    How can I improve my rhythm section mix?

    So I did some cutting in the low mids on the bass track and I managed to clear things up a bit but I still wasn't feeling the bass tone. It was still a bit round and flabby. I actually ended up taking Nola's advice and switching the roles of the bass and the kick. I pulled the high pass on the...

    How can I improve my rhythm section mix?

    I've been producing on an amateur level for a few years but I've always struggled with mixing my rhythm section, particularly when it comes to getting my drums and bass to lock together and sound like one cohesive unit. I'm currently working on a new project and I'd like to tackle these issues...

    Recording multiple guitar tracks with the same rig

    So I'm recording some songs at the moment and the current plan is to have two guitars in each song, hard panned left and right. The problem is I've only got one decent guitar, one decent amp, one decent mic, and one pedlaboard. This is fine for one of the guitar tracks but if I use that setup...

    Naming chords

    I'm working on a couple of songs at the moment in DADGAD tuning and I've decided to keep track of the chord progressions, melodies, and arrangements by writing everything down in a book. The problem is, I'm using a lot of chords with only 2 fretted notes and then playing the rest of the strings...

    Advice on starting a record label?

    I'm currently part of a two-piece alternative rock band and we're gearing up to release our second self-produced EP (our first since our re-branding). I've been thinking about releasing it on our own independent label, mainly because there's a possibility that I'll be producing works by other...

    Which first studio monitors?

    I'm looking to buy my first set of studio monitors and I've narrowed it to M-Audio BX5, Yamaha HS 50, Alesis M1 Active 520, or Behringer Studio 50USB. I'm happy to consider other options but the reason I've picked these is because they're all widely available online for under £150 and that's...

    3 Track EP - "Portrait With Teeth"

    Update So I've remixed the three tracks. After listening on various different speakers, I decided that the bass and drums were overpowering so I've brought them back slightly. I've also adjusted the levels of the piano in Wanderlust and the mellotron in Fading Roses and I'm now reasonably...

    3 Track EP - "Portrait With Teeth"

    I'm currently mixing some songs for my second EP but I'm not quite getting there. I need some fresh ears and little bit of feedback to help me improve the rough mixes so any suggestions or criticism you guys can give would be great. I composed and recorded all the music, my girlfriend wrote...

    Acoustic guitar string recommendations

    Can anyone recommend some acoustic guitar strings that will give me a dark, mellow tone with reduced finger squeak? I'm recording a fingerstyle piece on a Fender CD140S (see my other thread in the mixing clinic) and it's far too bright and present for the track. I can't change the guitar or...

    Hi, I haven't posted here before but I'm become incredibly frustrated with a mix I'm working on so hopefully you guys can help. Basically, I'm trying to record a fingerstyle acoustic guitar part for a song but no matter how many different recording techniques I try and no matter how I process...
