I have decided this year to stop buying more equipment thinking the more I buy the better sound I will get and focus on the real reason why I am not happy with any of my recording… Me , my lack of understanding of Recording and Mixing to be precise.
I dont really understand Dynamic, I have read many books and although I know what the knobs do I dont how to hear what they do or know when to use them, on what tracks or what setting to make.
I play Keyboard / Synths / VSTi and am wondering how do people record the sounds, baring in mind they are usually ful of processed effects by default.
Myself I typically take the output from the Keyboard or Module directly into the input of my Steinberg Mr816x and record what I hear. The problem is, when I use certain combination sounds that all contain Reverbs, Delays etc etc and after a couple of tracks or so the sound quickly becomes one big audio soup… I can never seem to get track separation.
Am I doing this correct or should I be disabling the preset effect, record the sound clean and then add effects later? I know this will make the preset sound pants
I would appreciate any tips
