Hey everyone! I have a mix I'm trying to bring some life back into. I recorded it about 2 years ago and it's been one of my favorite songs to work on. I've learned a lot about mixing since then and want to fix the glaring issues I'm finding with it now. One mess I'm facing is that I didn't do a good job of keeping noise down when I tracked all the instruments. I have limited gear and this is one of the only mixes I have to date where I haven't used any samples or vst's except for some accordian parts. I actually like some of the noise I have, I wanted the mix to sound very "homey" and warm, not super duper polished but not a wreck either. In one section I have a lot of noise on the kick and snare. The tracks I have from two years ago I used a gate to cut out the noise inbetween beats, but when the kick or snare hits each time in this section of the song the noise is very audible and not very pretty. The noise removal stuff I've tried has made my kick sound dull. It takes out all the top end and really messes with the way I'd like it sound. Does anyone have a ny tips on removing noise without making an instrument sound dull. Any tips/tricks are appreciated. Thanks!
