    Some help on this one please

    I need a bit more space and less clonkiness. I'm not great at reverb so there isn't much on it. Any advice?

    SD3

    I'm trying to do quite a simple thing in Superior Drummer 3 which is to alter the pitch fractionally on each snare hit for realism as I don't feel the hit variation does enough. I've tried putting it in write mode in Cubase but it doesn't record the changes. Is there a way of doing this please...

    Mix help

    I've got to the point in this mix where if I do anything it sounds worse:) but it's not right yet. It sounds a bit over bright and a bit muddy in places with no depth. I've compressed and equed and put reverb on the tracks I think need it and there is a vocal but I haven't worked on that yet...

    2 Acoustic guitars

    Hi chaps, So I have 2 AC guitars doing slightly different things panned hard left and right. Is there a way to stop the constant imbalance between the 2? I've tried compression and eq etc but it's not giving me that smooth constancy. Have a listen to this clip which is untreated. Cheers, mike...

    Compression suggestions please

    I have a heavily strummed guitar which I like but I want to even the volume without attacking the peaks too much and I want to preserve the natural sound. With compression I have tried a fast attack and medium release, threshold just barely touching it but it's not doing the job. I've also...

    just moved address, need help with boomy room

    Hi Chaps, The room I've just installed my gear in is quite boomy but it's rented so I cant make any structural changes or even hammer nails into walls. What can I do to tame the room given these restrictions? I'm going to get some hefty curtains for the windows, other than that I'm stumped. Thanks

    UR44 issue -tearing me hair out.

    I'm trying to do something quite simple, play my mix while referencing a track through my computer media player. Easy right? Not since I got the UR44 it isnt. I have Cubase set up with control room, Mix L1 and R1 go to my monitors, Mix L2 and R2 to the headphones, the headphones come out of...

    Do VST compressors actually work properly?

    It could well be me but I don't hear a huge difference especially when trying to limit something to sit nicely in a track. I usually end up manually drawing the volumes in. Have a listen to these examples, I've deliberately uploaded a lively section of the bass for illustration along with the...
