    Seeking Critique for Film Trailer Music

    This is for a school project. Students are being challenged to write music for a film trailer given no video, but just an outline of the trailer with all of the hit points labeled. I'd really just like some feedback on the overall sound of this. I'm not looking for feedback on the substance/how...

    How to mix muddy / too wet strings and make them shine?

    I just can't get Spitfire Chamber Strings to work - pizzicato, especially. Maybe I'm just very picky, but I'm not comfortable with what they sound like - don't mind the size - but there's lots of overlapping frequencies in there (not solvable with Reaper's EQ, or maybe I don't do it properly?)...

    Folk music + mixing attempt

    Hi, here is a new composition of mine. I used the flute, the accordion and the maracas from NotePerformer, the guitar from Acoustic Guitar, the e. bass from HSSE, and some drums from Realidrums. I tried to mix these heterogeneous sources of VIs. I always struggle with mixing, even for basic...

    Why doesn't it sound as good on phone speakers? Feedback on mix?

    Hello, I put out a track on youtube, however it sounds different on phone speakers, as if it's almost too bright. I spent a whole day trying to level the volumes as I wanted. I'm still a beginner, so I'll take any type of feedback as constructive. Here's the track:

    Best mixes you've heard

    Just curious for some examples of music you heared that you consider as very well mixed. Mainly interested in orchestral tracks, but could be literally anything, samples or live recorded.

    Feedback on my mix

    Hi, I'm mixing one of my pieces and I need to get some fresh thoughts about it. My ears are kind of tired after days and days of work on my project (7 tracks EP). I've the feeling that 2/3 of my brass are too close and too punchy. Maybe minus a db or two on them would do the trick? I've also...

    Mixing process with librairies (noise floor)

    Hello there! I've been struggling a lot lately while mixing my tracks because of some libraries. I acquired CSS/CSB last Black Friday and it's amazing, really. But when it comes to mixing them, I cannot freely manipulate high frequencies with Passive EQ, Multiband compressor, Saturator -...

    How to mix a demo song for a sample library

    Hello everyone The question is in the title: how should I mix a song demo for a sample library ? Should I : - do a mere level balance, with no eq, reverb or compression - do a simple mix that sounds good enough, and brings out the samples a bit - do the absolute best master I can ? What is...

    Logic Panning

    In Logic when your are mixing your orchestral instruments, what panning option do you use on Logic's track panners? Stereo Pan, Balance or Binaural Pan. I see by default its using balance. But doesn't it work better to use Stereo Pan?

    Audio FX Best Practise

    Hey guys, Currently I'm using folder stacks to organise groups of instruments (winds, synths, percussion e.t.c.) and using sends for reverb before routing to the final mix. Aiming to achieve the 'big trailer sound' as a project but I guess these questions could apply to anything really ... Is...

    How do you treat your Reverb?

    If you do... HP? LP? Bell/shelf boost/cut? Mid/Side EQ or Stereo EQ? Compression? Saturation? Stereo Widening? Transient Shaping? I've been EQing a bit but would love to hear your approach.

    Unable to complete a mix

    So, there's a piece I finished writing a few months ago. All of the midi is 'recorded', samples chosen etc... and I've just been unable to make it sound the way I want. Reverb / balance / EQ etc. It's driving me insane. I compress too much, it sounds dead, not enough, jarring... Could the...
