Thank you. :smiley::smiley::grin:


For a moment I thought that was 3 million USD worth of UVI soundbanks. O.O


I do my sequencing in jeskola tracker so a lot of my tips are very DAW specific regarding commands (retrigger and reverse).


No … my UVI sound bank is way much lighter that this :wink:


Reversing a sample treating the reversed sample with reverb and rereversing the sample back…instant ducking fade in.


Mid side eqing=frequency band splitting filtering/or boosting certain frequencies and placing different frequency band in a different position within the stereo field…correct me if I’m wrong…

Frequency band splitting

And manual spectral morphing…using a combination of frequency band splitting, sends…vocodex…mixing dry and wet signals and resampling with various things such granular synth…vocoding the sound modding a frequency band with a sound made with sytrus that also has effects applied to it…and vocoder modding a different frequency band with a time stretched sample…etc…


got something similar to a vaetxh sound by Using maximus with a wierd envelope with random settings on the attack and release, post, pre, threshold, etc…to destroy the transients of a beat sliced glitch sequence after I turned on the looping feature modded the volume, pitch, and filter parameters with envelopes and lfos to get glitch effects and layered it with some other stuff that is granulized and timestretched…will make vid about it soon.


Good to know it’s not just me. I’m on WIP 17 on my current endeavor… here is an example of my mixing sessions:

  1. Good morning! Listen with headphones… hmmm… not bad, needs a little more work.
  2. Two hours later… listen in monitors… Oh … my… GOD! it sucks…
  3. Two more hours mixing with monitors… I think it sounds a little better.
  4. Double check with headphones… yeah… definitely better…needs a little more work
  5. One hour later… everything sucks! Nothing is helping… need a break

Next morning… rinse and repeat :persevere:


I don’t rely on studio monitors because if you can’t satisfy your ego on cheapish pc speakers your mix will sound same lame on studio monitors.


At the end of the day, if it sucks in your car…no one cares how good the rest is.


agree with you


I think I learned how to use the limiter correctly in the summer. But then for some reason I forgot about it.

My advice is to use a limiter. Learn how to use it. And Yes, I’m not talking about the limiter on the master and on the tracks. Maybe I’m using it as a compressor, I can’t explain it. But the limiter decides. Mix with a limiter.


I’m a retard…because there is a tonal algorithm for time stretching in fls sampler…basically it timestretched without altering the pitch…and with it I assume you can pitchshift easily without it automatically time stretching the sample a ridiculous amount…I assume…
