Sharing Time: Your favorite tips and tricks

It's been a while since we've had a Meetup (my fault) and we've had a lot of new members join us. Let's get together and have more of a roundtable event (rather than a presentation) and each share a favorite tip or trick. These could be during the tracking/recording stage, mixing stage, mastering stage, etc.

If you don't have a favorite tip or trick, now would be a great time to do some reading on or, or a chance to watch some tutorial videos on YouTube.

You bring the tips/tricks, we'll bring the drinks/beer.

    Some of the tips from last night:

    • AES - $90 for full membership, convention in October
    • Getting breathy vocals - create two aux tracks send all your vox tracks to the aux tracks, on one aux track take everything out but the highs, turn the highs down and then inch it up until you start to get some of the airiness
    • Put the track on write or latch and give it little bumps, just randomly to give a little bumps in gain. Not enough to perceive it...if you can hear it, you're doing it wrong
    • Watch out for frequency clashes
    • EQ before or after compression? After makes sure you don't compress the EQ changes
    • BFD and Addicting Drums have real drum samples recorded in high end studios that you can trigger with MIDI, Native Instruments has the same for other instruments
    • Be careful about gear lust. It's much more about the artist/arrangement. Also, know your gear. You can produce decent sounding music if you know your gear.

    Feel free to add others

      Also, I generally try to avoid monster products, especially beats audio products. If you just do a little bit of research you'll discover that they are all marketing and close to zero product development.
