    Improvements for my mix

    Hey guys, I'm planning on finally releasing my first EP. Currently I am busy tracking and I mixed one song that displays the style of the EP pretty well. So far, I think the mix is decent but could get better.. however I can not put my finger on where to improve. If you have any suggestions -...

    Tutorial on how to record with a Two Notes Captor

    I did a little tutorial on how to record with a Two Notes Captor, where I also explain how to get some decent sounds with the Wall of Sound plugin: As stated in the video it is meant for beginners, but quite in debt. I hope the guys on here that are fairly new to recording get something out...

    Best Digital Audio Interface (Focusrite vs Behringer vs Audient)

    Yes, I know. I'm going to get blasted since there are a million of these posts but I genuinely am just overwhelmed with all these options and I'm unaware of where to go. The reason I've posted this is because I believe all of these options depend on what each person is looking for, so here we...

    Looking mixing critiques before I send off for mastering! (instrumental prog)

    I recently recorded a 3 song EP and one of the songs is to be used as a reference for all 3 songs to have a consistent mix across the board. I was hoping I could get some advice on my current mix. As of right now, I think the kick needs to be adjusted and some volume levels need to be made to...

    Can NOT dial a good tone with TF Menace. Any suggestions?

    Hey guys, I bought Toneforge Menace several months back so I could simplify my recording set up. Just guitar to interface to laptop. Simple as that. From all reviews I read about Menace, it seemed like it was able to dial a tone in damn near instantly. But from my experience over the last few...

    Let's see more hollowbody/semi-hollowbody guitars in modern progressive metal!

    They would be more of a recording tool than something for a live performance. At least, this is how I use them. As a guitarist, I find that their tones, especially Gretsch's, are just too ecstatic to pass up. However, given the style of progressive metal that I write, I wouldn't ever find...

    Mastering Songs -6.6db LUFS & LUFS but 0.2db TP after Dither?

    I've been mixing and mastering songs for over 15yrs now and I've never ran into this. My limiter ceiling is set to -0.7db and my song is rms & lufs at -6.6db which is usually the target range I like for progressive deathcore. But when the Dither is engaged before I mix down it causes the...

    Latency Issues

    So, probably a really easy fix but I can't seem to figure it out. I've had latency issues previously which I've been able to resolve however after a blue screen of death incident I can't seem to fix some latency issues when recording. I'm currently on an old copy of Cubase 5 (5.1 I think if it...

    Can't import vocal stems, need help!

    Obviously a rookie here, but in desperate need of help. I've recorded three songs and mixed them myself. I sent wav files of these songs to a friend via Dropbox so he could record his vocals over top of my music. He has sent back wav files of his vocals stems and his vocal chain, again via...

    Caecus - "A Parting Current" (2019)

    Hey everybody! Really excited about the new Caecus album that we just released today. This album (and all the video work) was done completely in-house by myself and the band. Sevenstring.org has been fundamental in my progress as an engineer and artist. The DIY nature of this community has...

    Capturing tones with Helix: USB or SM57 + Cab?

    Hi. Just like the title says. I play through my cab loaded with V30's and seek all the tones with that setup. When I want to record something, I simply do it directly via USB and then add some 3rd party IR to the guitar track (it records RAW input since there's no cab in chain because I'm...

    Recording Drums - My Work in Progress

    Okay, here goes: I'm on a quest to learn everything I can about creating and recording music myself, without having to rely or wait on others to get things done. Most of what I'm doing for myself is on the PC (amp sims, programmed drums), but the band I'm in isn't really interested in a totally...

    First mix/recording in a LONG time, thoughts? (Intervals)

    As title says, I've been out of it for a while now due to school and getting a little invested in beat production so I decided to record a short cover of my favorite Intervals track, Epiphany Two different versions with different lead tones and some other slight changes, not sure which I prefer...

    Looking for a Desktop, ~$1,200 Budget

    Hey, I am having the damnedest time finding a desktop for recording without going the gaming route, in which it has been difficult to find a good deal as GPU power doesn't much matter to me, and the prices and specs are skewed specifically towards gaming performance. I would prefer a Windows...

    Good choice for my 1st recording computer?

    Looking into getting something to record with and run smoothly. I just have a bunch of guitars, pedals and a combo amp. I really wanna start recording my own tracks and start with covers and stuff like that, just with something like reaper for now. All I know is I need a computer with decent RAM...
