Mixing Talk / Re: Depth of field in mixing
« on: March 20, 2011, 06:59:22 PM »
Depth is definitely a mystical thing to me. What I have tried (with limited success) is using the same reverb on everything (steinberg roomworks), and adjusting the predelay to put the instrument nearer or farther from the imaginary back wall. It usually does sound better (to me) with the kick and snare quite dry and up front though. Delays I usually reserve for thickening a sound without giving it the subconscious distance that reverb does.

Forum Suggestions / mixing advice area
« on: March 04, 2011, 02:32:04 PM »
Is it just me, or does it seem funny that there's no area for general mixing advice? This forum seems to be gathering a community of people from all levels of mixing skill, and a place to discuss techniques/tips would probably be really useful. I don't know if some of the more professional/skilled people want to hold on to their "trade secrets", but others (like myself) could really benefit from the interaction with mixers better than them. Correct me if I'm wrong, or if this just isn't the site for beginners to learn.

MixOff News and Updates / Re: MixOff.org Launches!

This site looks like a great idea, John! Thanks for getting it started. Most of my music is done for SongFight.org, but there's quite a bit of it, and more all the time, so I'll try to get some wavs up next time I record. I've been doing a fair bit of reading to try & improve my mixing, so I look forward to getting/giving some criticism.
