Hi guys I’m new here and getting used to the layout so forgive any newb questions. I’ve been playing music for years, but just started to want to record and produce my own music. I currently play a fender strat into a Boss me-80 that goes to a Steinburg UR 12 interface that is connected to my laptop via USB 2.0. My problem is that when I record anything it always seems like all the sounds just muddle together and there is no real distinction. It sounds very raw and unpolished despite playing the things as best I can and very cleanly. This goes for clean tones as well as distorted. Changing the volume of the individual tracks doesn’t seem to help. I’ve also tried turning up and down the volume from my guitar and the me-80 as well as the interface and a combination of those and nothing seems to help. I’m getting a very scratchy, raw, unfiltered sound.
So my question is: Is this a problem of mixing? How do I fix it?
