Dubstep Growl Production - Part 2 - Patch Edits, Levels, Basic EQ
In this weeks member tutorial, Jonny shows us how he applies effects, equalizes and mixes his tracks that use NI Massive.
Welcome back to MassiveSynth.com’s member tutorial of the week. Last week Jonny focused in on how he creates his tracks using NI Massive. In this weeks tutorial, Jonny starts continues where he left off, this time showing how he edits and mixes his composition.
All tracks start off rough. They have that demo quality, which isn’t the typical sound that gets played in the clubs or on the air. It’s important to polish up your track so that it gets maximum exposure, and that’s exactly what editing, mixing, and EQing can do!
Jonny does a great job of demonstrating his process of adding effects and equalizing the sound scape. Learning to EQ properly is invaluable. Especially if you wish to have any sort of polished music sound. Equalizing improperly can muddy mixes, and allow for sounds to get covered up even when the levels are pushed up.
Pay close attention to your own sounds, and see what works best for you. Adding effects and EQ is all personal. Each track is unique and adjusting specific frequencies for each track will only hurt your mix. Take the time to learn your track and the specific frequencies in them, and you will find that you’re able to mix and EQ a lot faster, and a lot better.
