headphone mix

My latest instrumental.. trying to nail the drums. How do they sound...?

Hey all,

I've been working on a new instrumental. Well, it's actually a re-work of a track I first attempted 20-odd years ago. Anyhow, what does everyone think? Have I nailed it?.. I'm trying to get the drums to sound 'decent'.. Might have over embellished in a few places..

At usual, I'm mixing on my trusty DT-990 pro headphones.

Thanks,

Ben.

Prog rock guitar instrumental -- trying to go for a larger drum sound. How did I do?

Hey All,

This is my latest composition that I recorded over the last week. As usual, I mixed it on headphones.

In contrast to some of my earlier recordings, I though I'd try out a different drum kit (courtesy of EZDrummer) and tried to sharpen my programming skills. I quite like the sounds -- seems quite 'live' but would be interested to hear what other people think.

Does it work?

Compositionally, the track is a mix of 5/4 and 4/4 time signatures.

Going for an anthemic kind of vibe with this guitar-based instrumental..

Hi everyone,

I've been recording this track over the last week or so. Used my Tele for all guitar sounds; EZ Drummer for drums, EZBass for bass (I know... my bass guitar is very scratchy) and various plugins for keys and strings..

I guess I was going for an anthemic kind of sound.

What do people thing? As always, I used my DT990 Pro headphones (I don't have the space or proper acoustics for monitors). All tracked in Logic Pro.

Thanks,

Ben.

Monitoring with Samplitude Pro X

Monitoring with Magix Samplitude Pro X

In this video I show how I do my monitoring setups with RME Totalmix FX and also using Samplitude alone for those who don't have a virtual mixer for their interface. 

One of my Youtube Viewer bought a PreSonus Q2626, it seems to not have a virtual mixer and aimed to be driven by studio one..  I hope this will work with samp as well. 

Let me know what you think. How do you manage monitoring outputs, with or without multiple signals for headphones.. 

What to put in the cue mix?

Hi! In reference to this thread ...

... I'd like to start a thread on what constitutes a good headphone/monitor mix. Let's have some discussion on the practicalities of putting things into the cans, as well as a collection of tips from practices you've tried that worked. Here are some examples:
