First mix on my new Event TR8's

Hi,

I just got myself a pair of Event Tuned Reference 8 Active monitors and here's my first mix using them.

I'm using Apple MacBook Pro and Presonus Firepod with the TR8's (my little "homestudio" if you could say so)

The mic I used for the vocal harmony in the end was just a AKG Perception 200. The voices are quite suddle though.

The main thing in this mix is the low-end. I want it as tight as possible.

The song is ReWired from Reason to Logic Pro 8 and it's a kind of a interlude type of song.

The ONLY plugin I put on the Master track was a little compression (RCompressor)

ps. don't mind the little awkward start of the song, i'll fix that later. It was some mess up when I bounced the mix.

Please comment !

Here's another quick mix I made of another demo.

Like I said, it's just a quick mix so I am going to improve the overall sound in the next mixes.

ps. Don't mind the name "House2.mp3" .. It's NOT house music

I like them. The first is atmospheric, with very nice bassline and sense of space. Nice and relaxing. The other choon was interesting I like the use of hi hats - were you auto-panning them as they were played? Did you put reverb on the whole drum kit?

I heard these with interest as I own some tr8s also and have been wondering if they are causing me troubles with my mixes. I think people say there are issues in mid and upper range but sounded great to me in your tunes.

you couldn´t buy better monitors in the 800,- eur price range.

and there´s no big difference to much more expensive monitors. the tr8 are the ideal learning monitors in my opinion. enjoy them!

Thanks for the comment !

Here's another mix of the song "Jammm" and I dropped the low-end a little bit because I found it to be a little boomy.

In the next mix i'll do some minor changes to the low-end.

I made a few adjustments.

What I did with the drums is that I used a lot of delay. I bussed all the drum tracks and put reverb on it. I also put some warm overdrive to make it a little "tape-ish"

Tell me what you think of it..

Probably too much on the 'verb, the distorted sound was maybe too loud too but i liked the rest
