Tips on Mixing

Here is a really good read I found. Thought I'd share...

Mixing and mastering
What to do and what better not to do...

I am frequently asked "how do I make loud tracks?", "how do I *master*?".
This little article might serve as a general brainstormer. It is just reflecting my personal opinion on that topic. Yours may be different ;)

Making powerful tracks begins with the writing of the song. You should check at least this:

Tip of The Day #1

Here is a tip I learned a long time ago, and a problem I still struggle with till today:


Alot of times, when I'm making a beat, I start thinking, "What can I do to make this beat better?" And most times I add extraneous elements that have no place there, and I usually end up screwing up the beat that I'm working on.

Your beat doesn't have to be jam-packed with sounds for and artist to like it. You have to remember that the beat is used to help the artist shine. Whether it's their singing or lyrical ability, the beat is just used to help support the singer/rapper.
