  2. Noise Gates and Expanders

    Having reasonable knowledge on Noise Gates and Expanders goes a long way in making your recordings sound cleaner and more professional, especially when you are recording out of your home studio. While recording, noise may arise due to a various number of factors such as the surrounding environment, electronic equipment used etc. Noise can become very problematic if it is cumalated from a number of tracks in your project. Noise gates and expanders are tools using which the noise can be isolated and removed to a significant extent if used correctly. Though it may vary, some of the basic controls/knobs you would find within noise gates are Release, Attack, Hold and Ratio. The following article takes you through a basic understanding of these various controls to help you on your way in making your recordings sound the way they should sound - awesome. http://www.songstuff.com/recording/article/noise_gates_and_expanders/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful.

  3. An equalizer is an invaluable tool in the process of music production. It can be used to remove or boost certain frequencies in the mix to improve the sonic quality of the track. It can also be used creatively to introduce new sounds that provide a desired character to the track. Like all tools available during music production, an equalizer needs to be used only where needed. The following article provides you with a very informative list of frequency ranges that can be referred to during the process of mixing in order to enhance your track. The frequencies mentioned only provide you with a direction in which you need to look. Use your ears and tweak as needed to get the desired results . Good luck and happy mixing! http://www.songstuff.com/recording/article/eq_frequencies/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful.

  4. Compression - An Overview

    One of the most important tools available to a music producer while working on a song inside a studio is compression. Compression is used to control the level of dynamics within a song. A compressor engages itself and brings down the volume/level of the audio signal when it exceeds a set threshold value. There are various controls to a compressor such as threshold, ratio, attack, hold, release, gain and bypass using which one can control how the compressor behaves. In many cases, dynamics within the song is generally considered to be a good thing but taming and controlling the difference between the loudest and the quietest parts in a song may lead to increased presence and more clarity. This article gives you an introduction to compression and its various controls. http://www.songstuff.com/recording/article/compression/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful.

  6. Hi everyone, Last year I posted some lyrics on this website and a kind person did a demo for these lyrics. I do not know if you ever heard of Eurovision. This is a competition where almost all countries in Europe takes part with a song. I live in Malta and we have a local contest where the winner will then take part in this European contest. This local contest is televised and there is prize money for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd. You will be given full credit of the song with the one who wrote the demo. Attached please find the demo. Although it sounds a bit country I wish that this song would be a bit rock/dance (similar to Kelly Clarkson - My Life would suck without you) If anyone interested do not hesitate to write in this forum. Thanks Kyle James Anderson-When I Met You (1).MP3 James Anderson-When I Met You-track (no vocals).MP3

I run Crowd Audio as a serious startup looking to revolutionize the way musicians approach their mixes and productions.

  9. I only very recently started using buses as effect sends and having been reaping the benefits in my mixes. I love panning an instrument a bit to the right and then sending about -20db of the signal to a bus with a short delay and reverb and panning that hard left to really expand the stereo field. So many options with so many different effects. I've been experimenting a lot with it lately and I was wondering if any music producers amongst you have any favourites that you go to for certain instruments and styles. It's great for unloading the pressure on CPU if you want a lot instruments to have the same reverb or something but do any of you guys use it stylistically or for purposes other than giving your computer a break?
  10. Grime

    Grime fusion into the pop industry in USA has been the big trend over the last 6 years (yeah I know Grime has been around under one name or another for a decade at least) and lately it seems just about everyone who is anyone in the mainstream pop market is using Grime beats, a Grime based sound. Some of you must be experimenting with Grime, so 'fess up, who's Grimey?
