I’m running into an extremely frustrating issue where my mixes are not leveled no matter what I do. My kick is always too quiet or too loud, my high frequences fight for space, and can never get the mixes right.
I’ve never had this issue before, specifically when I was using FL Studio. My mixes were always more leveled and didn’t spend nearly as much time on the mix. It’s so frustrating because I’ve finished maybe 2 tracks this entire year, and I have a bunch of tracks unfinished because I’ve become so sick of trying to mix them down. The more I try to mix, the quieter my mixes become… and I get nowhere. I don’t know what the fuck is going on. I’m to the point where I am starting to hate music production because of this issue, and it’s becoming a chore to make tracks.
Also, I’m not sure if this helps but I’m also using ‘Nicky Romero Kickstart’ as my main sidechain. The only major switches I’ve made in terms of plugins is Kickstart and fabfilter. Also since switching, I am using a Scarlett 18i8 soundcard. I never had this much of an issue in FL studio for some reason. My kicks would be a little loud but I wouldn’t go back to my mixes and over mix.
Is there some kind of setting that I’m missing because I can’t figure this out
