In listening to some of the really good tracks posted here on Made with Cubase, on Soundcloud – everywhere. I’m seeking to understand what it is about them that makes them as good as they are? A lot of people who post here and elsewhere are doing excellent, every bit as good, in some cases, as the work of the A-list, name artists, and so many different styles. But, common to many is really solid sound engineering and production technique.
In the good tracks it seems like the whole song or piece is setting in a wonderful kind of “sonic bubble.” What is that “sonic bubble”? It’s not just overall level, it seems more about how the track’s frequency distribution is being handled, but I’m sure it’s much more? I feel like I’m almost about to hit a new plateau with my work, but, I’m not quite there.
So, the question is, what is it that brings a mix to that wonderful sonic space, that “sonic bubble?” Do I need some critical plug-ins for Mastering that I don’t have? Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks.
