    I´ve tried and tried to get a really huge sound (with midi&recorded audio), a sound where you can´t hear the room or the audio hitting the walls, but failed so many times.. :( Does anyone have any ideas how to do so? I´ve tried so many different reverbs and setting, tried recording it out of high quality speakers with good mic´s and so on..

    Thank you for any answers!

    You have to take the room out of the equation with acoustical treatment. You could search for RFZ (reflection free zone), first reflection points, audio control room treatment, etc.

    I wouldn't look for etc. but the other search phrases should help.

    Close micing without excesses level trim gain, little if any compression & limiting & direct outputs with DI boxes, will make the room disappear. It's your improper use of compression that brings the room into the obvious. That, along with the use of condenser microphones is your biggest problem. Stick with Shure SM57/58's. They will pick up the room slop quite as much as any condenser microphone will.

    Better dead than read.

    Sure, if you want to get all professional recording engineer, that's one way to do it!

    Does that read like I typed it because when I typed it i was lol'ing and rof'ing?
