    hi guys,

    got a problem with mastering mixed material (usually rock stuff) and making it super hot. it's superhot, but it doesnt feel superhot. there must be a problem with the midrange.

    what is your "tip" of the day?

  3. Pretty spammy response, Laurend.

    To the OP: Why do you feel it necessary to make it super hot? What exactly are you defining as "high RMS"?

    If you're exceeding -12dB, you're really going overboard, and it's no surprise that it doesn't "feel" energetic - you've crushed the energy right out of it.

    Laurend; meaningless and very spammy post. Watch yourself here, we value real content that people can learn from and bounce off. Prove me wrong.

    Scott, good post as ever.

    OP - what are you using? Don't expect advice without telling us what equipment you are using, you make it very difficult for us to assist you.
