    To low cut or not to low cut ?

    Thanks for that. So far, the majority over here seems to be more cautious with low cuts. Quite interesting how this differs from some other forums where I’ve asked the same question. I guess we all have our own way to achieve what we want in a mix. Many ways to Rome .... 😉.

    Reverb for blend and size

    Sounds like you've found a way that works for you as well. I've never heard of Echobode, must check out that one, in particular if it sounds a bit different.

    Reverb for blend and size

    It is nice to find a way that at least works for yourself. Thanks for sharing as it might also work for others :). For my other reverb types I do tend to gravitate towards the same kind of reverbs on certain instruments because I know it worked for me before. It probably also makes a difference...

    Mix automation techniques ?

    What a great tale of your way of automating a mix and how you got to it. Seems very unique to me these days, although I guess it is really based on editing by cutting tape in the analog days indeed. I started on a portastudio too, albeit a 4-track cassette deck, but never really dared to cut...

    Reverb for blend and size

    Yes I get where you're coming from, especially if you are talking about how you set the pre-delay for those early reflections. The larger the pre-delay, the longer it takes for the early reflections to bounce back from the walls, so the larger the room. And equally so, the tail definitely gets...

    Reverb for blend and size

    In this video I show a reverb technique I typically use in every mix. Do you guys have any such technique that I could learn from ? :) How to use reverb for blend and size Regards, Maarten

    Vocal comping

    Yes we usually don't record/redo individual words or sentences with this singer either but we do full takes of the entire song or sections of it. But we then combine these full takes by comping and choosing the best parts of all takes. So it happens quite often that we just use a few words from...

    Heritage Audio HA-73 EQ versus plugins

    I do have some treatment in my control room which you can see a bit better in another video about my home studio: Home Studio tour and design in 2020 It sounds fairly ok now for mixing now and I've improved it a bit more by using Sonarworks speaker/room correction software. But you do still...

    Vocal comping

    Yes that’s more part of vocal mixing to me. I usually have a multi-band on just the high frequencies as an additional de-essing step. It’s in another one of my videos :). Vocal mixing

    Mix automation techniques ?

    In this video I demonstrate how I use automation to build a dynamic mix. Do you guys have any specific tips or pointers on using automation, since my approach is quite basic ? How to use Cubase 11 automation for making a dynamic mix in Home Studio (S1E17) Regards, Maarten

    Heritage Audio HA-73 EQ versus plugins

    Thanks for watching the video! This was indeed more an EQ test than a pre-amp test, but at some point I may also do some comparions of that aspect of the hardware. My SM7B is a mic I ended up with after testing several others (which I also have a video about on my channel). I like the SM7B the...

    Heritage Audio HA-73 EQ versus plugins

    Exactly my conclusion in the video. Of all the hardware versus plug-in comparisons I’ve done this one was the closest. Thanks for watching!

    Heritage Audio HA-73 EQ versus plugins

    Thanks. Yes I also felt that the hardware and UAD plugins were very close with almost the same settings.

    Heritage Audio HA-73 EQ versus plugins

    So I've owned a Heritage Audio HA-73 EQ for a few years now and recently compared its EQ against a number of plugins. Perhaps of interest: Heritage Audio HA-73 EQ versus plugins Can you guys hear the difference ? Or anybody in here that has any experience with this unit ? Regards, Maarten

    Vocal comping

    The singer I work with a lot prefers singing through the whole song several times and not work on sections individually and do punch ins. So what we usually do is that he records around 3 to 4 tracks from start to finish. Comp from that during the recording session already and then we do punch...

    Vocal comping

    Hi, I just released a video today on Vocal Comping on my YouTube channel, and was wondering if you guys (and girls) over here perhaps have some additional tips, tricks or techniques that you use when comping a vocal. I know the exact tools are dependant on which DAW you are using but still...
