Ghostbusters (2016)

We were bored and watched this tonight. Oof. Pretty pointless and maybe just a few good laughs in the whole thing, otherwise either not funny or really terrible. C-

Re: Live streaming live music performances

The two-computer setup with OBS makes sense but seems maybe a bit "advanced". fluffy do you have any thoughts on a more "beginner" friendly setup? Some folks may be ok with sacrificing some quality/control to have something simpler to set up.

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

Oh yeah, one thing I don't think that's been mentioned is the idea of starting all of your mixing by focusing just on the kick then bass first. Solo the kick, get it sounding how you like, solo the bass, get it sounding good, solo both of them, get them sounding good together. Then do everything else.

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

I think that plain bass sound is totally fine. The plugin sound also seems fine. You may want to work more on muting the strings that you're not actually playing. You can do this by muting them with either or both hands. I hear a fair amount of open strings vibrating/ringing when they're not being p...

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

This is for real bass so you can probably skip some of the mic'ing stuff but you could also potentially translate it into how you set up your virtual bass amp and if you simulator lets you set up virtual mics etc.

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

And you probably want to make sure to use probably some kind of "classic" virtual bass amp. Like if you have an option that's emulating an Ampeg SVT, preferably through an 8x10" cabinet, that might help you get more of the classic/punk rock bass sound you may want.

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

Oh yeah, then there are the strings! Make sure to get the right kind of strings for the sound you're going for. I don't know if you have any music stores you can go to with actually helpful people who could recommend a type of strings for the sound you want but if you do ask them about it. Or Google...

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

You should post a plain recording of your bass for us to check out. It could be fine, or it could be terrible. Or it could just be that you're not starting with the sound that you ultimately want to have and that will mean a lot more post production effort to get from your starting point to where yo...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

I like the bit after "kiss" I have to give credit where credit is due there. I sent our mix out to Ken and Grumpy Mike for very last minute feedback like an hour before the deadline. Mike suggested that some instrumental thing should happen after "kiss" so I tossed in that descending Wurlitzer line...

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

As far as bass flabbiness/fartiness, beyond the EQ, you should be running your bass through a compressor which can help "tighten" up the sound. I don't have great specific advice there about settings. I usually use presets. I like a tube compressor or "vintage" compressor, adding a bit of warmth/gri...

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

I'm lazy so I don't do a ton of complementary notching/bumping. :/ I mostly focus on the low frequencies which to me are a little simpler and easier and less time consuming to improve and get a lot more return on time spent IMO. I make sure that everything other than the kick drum and bass guitar ha...

Re: flabby, farty bass (and mix balance in general)

There are lots of references out there which can help guide you to some very rough, basic guidelines about what qualities of the sounds of what kinds of instruments/voices come from which frequency ranges. I've got this one printed out and taped up behind my computer monitor. https://www.sweetwater....
