    I keep everything, and more. By that I mean, I keep the original project files exactly as I bounced the audio out of my DAW (which happens to be Pro Tools). This includes all my plugins and mix...

    Indeed, anything is possible - including mixes that are complete crap. Mixing bad recordings is like trying to polish a turd. Mixing bad recordings with Waves plugins is like rolling a turd in...

    First, your speakers will couple that bass energy into the wall through the shelf. No matter what surface they sit on, it's good to isolate your speakers with something like the MoPad.

    Second,...

    NS10's are a popular monitor for that reason - there's nothing special about them, though. I was recently turned on to a mixer by the name of Ronan Chris Murphy. In a couple of his videos, you can...

    I record with a lot of headroom - peaks at -12dBFS or less. My approach to compression is to use make-up gain for just that - only make up enough volume so that you can A/B the compressor and not...

    Something like that would put the entire voiceover industry out of business. They're doing just fine, so I'd say no - nothing like that exists.

    Sorry bro, haha - I didn't mean to :-) So, the proximity effect is a little brain trick where something that has less low-frequency content sounds a like it's further away. Kinda like physically...

    The short answer is Yes - just set your MR5's to a comfortable volume for you.

    The volume control on the MR5's is the one place where unity gain doesn't make sense. Technically there's no...

    If the knob has a detente (when you turn it, a little notch where it gets stuck) that's usually the 0dB Unity Gain point. I'd set your mixer knobs there, and then start with your speaker volume...

    Except for a couple key points (input gain and power amplifier gain), I want my signal chain to have as little effect on the gain of my signal as possible. I don't want it to unnecessarily boost or...

    Sounds good, dude. Most obvious thing I noticed was that the male vocals are a bit thin, which makes them sound a bit further away. You could try turning them up, or bringing back some of the...

    I barely ever use limiters on a mix - once in awhile on a really squirrelly snare drum, maybe. To me, the principal purpose of a limiter is to reduce dynamic range, and I've not heard of *anyone*...

    Well, your computer probably already has a soundcard in it of some kind. When you plug these in, you're effectively adding another output device. You'll likely need to select the correct output...

    Ya, about the only pointer I would have is to try and minimize reflections. Don't record *in* a closet, but opening a closet door full of clothes adds a nice large absorber to the room. For a...

    It'd be easier to hear what you mean, I think, if we could hear some of what you've uploaded. Obviously, I won't be able to hear what you hear on your Mbox, but maybe hearing the final uploaded...

    Check your Hardware Buffer size in Setup -> Playback Engine. When you're tracking, this should be as low as possible (mine goes to 32 samples). However, you'll have problems if you have...

    Less Is More

    I just wanted to encourage you all who are building out your studios - bigger and more expensive is not always better. Yes, there are things that any engineer will tell you that you shouldn't skimp...

    If you're looking to get into this heavy and budget is not an issue, I'd recommend Pro Tools over Garage Band. Much better workflow. Highly recommend Mac over PC - and I'm not an Apple fanboy, I...

    It's a pretty big space to treat just for vocals, but I guess it could work. Now if you wanted to do a drum set or something, and you've got a budget to treat that big a space, go for it!

    Vocal Editing

    Hey guys,

    I know a lot of you on FP are working with mostly electronic or sampled music, and vocals may be one of the only tracks you're actually recording and editing from scratch. It can be...
