Tip 09 – Stereo Imaging – Part 2

Stereo Imaging Part 2

So, part two about Stereo Imaging. There are several ways to make sounds wide, but they all work in a similar way. What makes a sound “wide” (or stereo) is the difference of the audio signal of the left and right channel. If both output a completely similar signal, it’s mono. If not, you get a stereo effect. We won’t … Read More

Tip 08 – All About Compression!

Hey guys, Here’s my new production tip for this time. I’ve always had tons of questions on compression. Compression can seem really hard to understand, but once you understand the basics of compressors and how (and why) they work, it will make your music production / audio engineering life so much easier. So let’s just dive in! 🙂 Traditional compression … Read More

Tip 07 – Watermarking Your Tracks in FL Studio!

Audio Watermarking your tracks in FL Studio (or other DAWs) So, we all know the hassle. When sending out your tracks to labels or DJ’s or showcasing them on social media you never know what happens with your tracks. Sure, the bigger labels are all credible, but we’ve all heard of fraudulent smaller labels, DJ’s, or people ripping off tracks … Read More

Tip 06 – Referencing Your Tracks!

What’s happening in my lows? What’s happening in the lows of that commercially released and great sounding track? And what’s the difference between the two? How loud are the vocals in that track compared to the vocals in mine? Why does my track sound so shallow and narrow while the other track sounds so loud and wide? All (and more) … Read More

Tip 05 – Turn your ideas into reality

When starting out with production it can be hard to translate the ideas you have in your head into real music, especially when you have loads of inspiration. Even experienced producers sometimes spend a lot of time crafting the exact melody they have imagined. Wouldn’t it be easy if you could just sing, whistle or hum your melody, and use … Read More

Tip 04 – Freeware plugins galore!

Hey guys, This time I want to keep it simple and just make a list of some of my favourite freeware plugins. I use these plugins in most of my projects. This shows you that you don’t necessarily need expensive equipment or plugins to make good music. These plugins are free (okay, some have paid versions too) but deliver high quality results. Any … Read More

Tip 03 – EQ’ing the high frequencies

It’s not all about that bass! Everyone who has been producing for some time has read it somewhere: Get rid of the low frequencies of sounds that don’t need these frequencies, to clear up the mud and make room in your mix. And while a lot of people frantically follow this rule, they completely forget about the high frequencies. So once they … Read More

Tip 02 – Mixing Down in 3D – The Box

A mixdown can be something very abstract when you’re starting out with your productions. The pure theoretical definition is “to combine several tracks of audio into a single file”. In general practice the term “mixdown” or “mixing down” is often used as a way to describe the proces of making the most out of your mix. This means volume leveling, sound … Read More

Tip 01 – Stereo Imaging

For this first production tip we’ll focus on the stereo image. More specifically; how to get a wide lead sound which sounds good in mono as well. We won’t get into the science behind the techniques too much. If you’re interested in the scientific explanation of what’s going on; please check out this link. (SoundonSound) Instead we’ll be looking at … Read More
