Hey russ im new to this whole thing and since you have tips on a page i thought maybe i could ask u something i have nothing to loose. Iam an artist not a producer so i often purchase online beats. my question is how do u mix vocals to a beat like i know u record.add eq, then compression on the vocals then effects and what not right? i mix it to where i think sounds good but then when i mute the vocals i notice some of the vocals peak, then i adjust so they dont peak but still with the beat it hits red it peaks. what do i do after that or if u have any tips i would greatly apriciate it. Iam at the point where i dont know what to do after i have bounced my vocals and beat together on one track, do i then just use correction eq then mulitband then limiter? to do a poors man mastering job? if u dont reply thats ok, if you have taken the time to read this then i apriciate your time thanks.
Hi Russ, I know its 11 years late already but, i'd like to congratulate you on playing a vital role in making one of the best and my personal fav. album of all times (Voodoo by D Angelo). I'm a big fan of your work, I collect as much as possible, not just D. Can't wait for D's upcoming album, I just know its gonna sound great. Please let us know about any developments. - Mdu
First of all, thanx so much for being that patient and answering to all that (interresting or less) questions last year.
Mine would be about 436c's behaviour; Do your's kind of "pop" each time it starts to reduce? i'm found of this little baby but when i use it i have to care not to go down under threshold or developped techniques to hit it with the track muted before the part starts. (not really orthodox!!!)
I gave it for fixing to a few tech in Paris (including Olivier at Plus XXX when i was "stagiaire" there) but nobody manage to fix this.
Do yours oversaturate, even when you don't hit it hard?
I also own a Gates dual peak limiter , i've you ever eard about it? would you introduce me to someone havin' one, i feel so lonely!!!
Peace to your and all yours, Jonathan aka Jonn9000
