FX Effects and Mixing

I know for a fact that when sending split mixer tracks to a outsourced engineer to mix the song, you need to unselect all the FX effects that each split mixer track has. My question is what will happen to those fx effects after the song is mixed? Do I have to manually reapply them or does the engineer apply his own effects based off of the sound&mix that I want from the song?

Different pitch in samples PLS HELP (FL Studio)

Ok so I’m trying to use 2 samples from the same song. The problem I encountered is that these samples dont have the same pitch so when I play them after eachother they dont really flow. Both samples are about 8 bars, its just that one sample is a bit longer than the other so when I cut the parts in edison and load them into the playlist and set both to 8 bars in time stretch, the pitch is different… Changing the pitch in time stretching in channel settings makes it sounds pretty shitty. If anyone know how to solve this and pitch the samples at the same tempo pls let me know!!

My mastering plugin is playing up

I use Maximus as a multiband compressor and I think it’s awesome. But recently it randomly decided to start boosting volume of tracks by literally 4-5dB when it’s on default settings. I put it on a mastered track on default settings and it clips like hell and I have no idea why it’s doing this… It should be doing absolutely nothing.

Need microphone pros!!!!!

Hello,

I record rap vocals… and in the future want to make a mixtape. I currently have the blue spark, but I have a very high voice with lots of sibilance… So I’m willing to invest in another microphone. I record in an untreated room and am thinking about getting the sm7b with a cloudlifter, would this be a good combo for someone of a higher, more sibilance plagued voice for rap vocals? Or would it just not fit the microphone.

Self mixed song ( DONT WORRY, I will pay to have this engineered, this is just my practice soundcloud): https://soundcloud.com/jesse-langford-2/unorthodox

I’m the first guy… I just did some homemade eq and compression, will the shure sm7b be an ok match for my voice? Or is a condenser the way to go? If so what’s a good condenser on the darker side for someone of a higher voice?

New MPC REN user. ISO mixing advice

So i bought the MPC ren a few months back. Mainly just doing sample based stuff. I know how to chop and get my drums and sequence everything out and all the basic stuff. But mixing and EQing with just the basic MPC software is still proving frusterating. Ive always just rapped. I have an ear for music but its selective. Idk what drums sound good where, where to pan shit, when to add effects, what effects to add… Dont laugh at me! Lol im new! But From only having a few months of toying around with this thing ive made some very dope boom bap sample beats. But its time to take it to the next level and start learning how to mix and make my beats hit harder. So any advice anybody could give me regarding EQing kicks snares hats and samples in general would be good..

Who's using a Control Surface

I have a Korg NanoKontrol in a box behind my desk that I don’t use but I keep thinking it’d be nice to have a bank of motorised faders (which the very basic Nano’s short ones definitely aren’t) and some knobs to twist.

Been waiting for news on the new Behringer X-Touch
But other options would be the Icon Qcon Pro, a used Mackie MCU (or a baby HUI maybe…) or the older Behringer BCF2000 (no scribbles and less features but considerably cheaper than the Mackie/IconQcon).


Any of you use a control surface?
Does it aid your workflow to a larger/lesser degree than you thought it would?

Interesting alternative to ducking

So in electronic music (and in other genres), one technique to push the bass riff out of the way of the kick drum is to add a compressor to the bass that compresses every time the kick drum hits. I thought of a neat alternative the other day and I figured I’d share it! Make a copy of the bass channel, and invert the phase. Having both these tracks playing at the same time produces no volume (because of the inverted phase). Now on your inverted channel, add a gate, such that the gate is lifted when the kick drum strikes. Now, when there’s no kick, the inverted riff will be gated and have no volume, meaning the normal bass riff is the same; when the kick hits, the gate is lifted on the inverted channel, causing some of the volume to drop on the sum of the original and the inverted bass.

I’m not sure if anyone will find this useful (I haven’t found an effective way to use it yet), but some of y’all are very creative (and if you do find a use, tell me!). It basically just literally lowers the volume of the bass track, instead of compressing it. (There also might be an easier way of achieving the same effect via other means, but I don’t know one).
