Thanks for all the offerings everyone! I really appreciate it! Today I had great fun with Cityscape’s rhythm track. I loved the fact that I got to work with the actual stems. This is much more preferable for me as I like to get as surgical as possible.
His production was an experiment with the Op-1 to see what he could get out of it. It was great to work with these stems from the Op-1. Having one myself I know it’s capabilities.
Also, after going through this process today I’ve found a more preferable way to work.
I wouldn’t mind practicing the mastering process but I feel I can yield more results by putting the stems under the knife first so please consider that. I also need the volume of each stem to be pretty low (-12ish) so I have enough headroom for the mix down and then the master.
Cityscape made all of that easy and made me realise the potential headaches. If any of you guys feel like you’d like me to take a look at your stems first then please inbox me and we shall take it from there.
I finished the mix down in three hours and gave it a rest for the day. I will check the mix again tomorrow on my Adam A8X’s, and various different speakers and if it is good I will let Cityscape decide if there are any changes before I go ahead with the mastering process.
Thanks for reading the update everyone! I have a full time job but I will try and do as many things as possible!
