I'm finally biting the bullet to try to get this right. I need a reference track and for some reason am coming up entirely blank.
I'm currently demoing Sonarworks reference 4 calibration software. It's pretty cool. Massive difference between "Calibrated" and off. Anyone else have experience with it?
Is this something you do often at your own studio, or only when you are mixing at another facility, where it helps you adjust to an unfamiliar environment? Or, do you use this method when using new speakers?
Do you choose specific pro releases, and if so, do you use the same songs every time, or do you adjust the reference based on what you are mixing style-wise at the time? Just curious...
I have a fairly simple question, though am having trouble finding the answer. So, I thought I'd ask on a forum.
I hear this snare a lot in Trap. What Drum Machine creates this snare?
Here is a song that has it. (mind not the song, if its your vibe or if it aint is not relative to the question.) It appears first in the initial snare roll and can be heard throughout.
Sennheiser 380 HD pro
Audio-Technica ATH m50
KRK KNS 8400
internet has mixed review for all, though i was planning to get Sennheiser 380 HD pro, but still need the expertise advice to pick the right one.
I'm looking to upgrade my drum overheads from AKG C 1000 S' to either Shure SM81's or AKG C 214's. Price and versatility are factors, but the main use will be as drum overheads. Opinionsor advice is very much appreciated. Thanks!
I'm trying to make a short list of songs to reference my mixes to.
1 or 2 songs for each styles of music.
I'm not searching for the most catchy or popular songs, I'm looking for the most sonicly accurate and/or those who sound good as a reference.
Please add your favorite reference songs
