[Lofi Beats] AsylumSeaker - Lofi jam 110318

So, this is a straight recording of a jam.. skip through if you like, its a bit slow.



Drums are from the Drumbrute, through some analogue filters. The other sound is a few seconds of the Apocalypse Now soundtrack loaded into the Make Noise Morphagene, which is a sampler module designed to mimic in approach a mid 20th century tape studio. I've got a CDJ running into it and I've been having a lot of fun sampling my old cd collection.

I really like the story behind what you're making. Like the instrument and samples used to create the project, is interesting but that's where it is faulted in my opinion. I also wouldn't say "lofi" in this case. There are some issues.

This mix sounds like it suffers more from over-gaining in whatever fashion you've done it. It sounds mix-wide rather than one single sample or track within the project. Which, I think I've experienced this quite a bit in the past, myself.

So basically you're working on this project. You have no basis for what the loudness of the project if because you're getting started in your endeavors(or whatever really). So you want to make sure it's louder for someone else to hear. You comp/gain/utility/gain....etc etc. But you're mixing at a very low level but it's hidden by the ability to over crank your monitors. I've done this plenty.

So when I go to turn the mix back up, I can't get it loud wihtout a bunch of background noise. Because I'm basically raising the "floor" for noise.

Additionally, sometimes a single track can be made louder and then to help with the floor of the one "track" it can be hi passed, tucked behind something else. But when it is mix-wide, it's diffcult, degrading to the overall mix and even impossible to alleviate.

If I'm wrong, I'm sorry but from my experience it's something above and it feels mix-wide. But it could literally be related to one sample or live recording taken at such a low level, it's burning the whole mix.

If you have any questions, definitely shoot me a PM. I'm just a hobbyist but I'll see what I can help you with. There are also a lot of better people than me, with much more technical info than I have.

Yeah nah.. the way I mixed it was by leaning my tablet up against my left monitor and recording from the mic. Then I uploaded the result without any post-processing. That's what I mean by lofi, I mean low fidelity But thanks for the considerate reply. I just didnt have my zoom recorder with me which is what I'd usually record onto when my laptop is not at my studio.. so tablet it was. Examples of jams recorded more properly:

Yeah, tbh only thing wrong here is that room noise/ volume variation. I actually thought the idea for the volume variation was cool, just a little overdone. My guess is record closer to the speaker and this would've been money, unless that was just totally overloading the mic.
