I just started using FL again after awhile and I'm trying to do mainly soundtrack type music. I know this is probably an exhausted question here but it's about mixing and mastering. I don't really have the slightest clue how mix tracks or master it. I'm pretty content with the songs I'm doing melody wise and still have a lot to learn but I really need to start learning this if I want to make it sound good.
The main problem is that on youtube most of the tutorials are on hip hop beats and trance music. I wanted to ask if anyone knows where I can read about mixing for the type of music I'm making, maybe after that I can move to mastering. Any links to reading material regarding this would be really helpful, because I don't really know the terms and what not either. The main vsts I'm using are Stormdrum and Miroslav Philharmonik. These are the instruments I need mastering.
One last question, is there any way around mixing a midi out channel. Since Miroslav Philharmonik has many channels within the software, I just use midi out because I don't think my computer can handle opening 9 seperate Philharmoniks. Unfortunately, now I can't master those other channels and it would be really tidious to open a new FL, copy/paste the patterns, etc.
Anything you can offer will be appreciated. Thanks.
