    I didn't say that your question was stupid because it wasn't. Unfortunately the question is too broad to give an indefinite helpful answer.

    My rant on the lazy guys was towards LLR, which stated my frustration of the constant reanswering of elementary issues.

    The sound source is the culprit of a lack of depth almost every time. Get the mixes sounding as best as you can before you ever hit the record button, don't expect the engineer to fix the shortcomings after you have recorded, and don't expect that to be good practice.

    and as for the acoustics, diffuser on the back wall, skyline diffusers on ceiling, mid-high frequency absorbers (or skyline diffusers, maybe even a blend of both) on the side walls and front wall, and bass traps in the corners.

    @Winter ahh I see, my bad.. sorry for that then :)

    @Titface.. "if your pro get decent monitors"... you really cant read can you?

    lets look at what I posted before you..

    All it took was "boost around here, mic from around here and buy a bass speaker / monitor to mix better"

    Holy shit.. what was that? A mention of getting good speakers?

    I'm all for advice and beatings if or when I'm wrong.. but telling me to do something I've already posted on the same page and litterally one post before you?

    Either learn to read or don't reply.. either way I'm far from taking your advice Line.

    But anyway this is getting silly hahahaha I ask one thing and it turns into a fuckin bitch fest over nothing..

    still waiting for this mess to be deleted :p

    @venemorte IMHO there is one link that maybe you have been missing. There is 2 very different things about mixing and mastering. The Professional albums make this 2 things separately in different studios and different engineers and there are tons of techniques and people who is specialized in each topic. To be honest with a decent pair of monitors you might hear what you are trying to mix but there is a lot of tricks that make the professional productions to have that "label" sound. In it in this case the depth of the sound or whatever. The point is that to get that sound, industry invest in a lot of expensive toys that individually doesn't make much the difference but all of this little expensive stuff summed makes the fucking difference.
    Maybe you might be able to create a very balanced good mix but as Semi or non professional it's very hard to get that sound you want because you have invest in a recording like... 5k in all your equipment? while industry had invest hundreds also had years of experience. And this is not to disappoint you is just to get you tuned. I'm sure that if most of the people here that are trying to improve their mixes and making this questions could mix in a pro studio, they could learn faster and make their mixes sound as the pro albums they want to sound. Let's face it and keep learning all you can if your objective is to run your own studio business, but if it's just for fun just be aware the limitations you will have not being Pro. Also I have to remark that not because you have a pro studio you'll be able to handle it and create good stuff. It's just through experience, practice, ear skills and a good work environment (i.e. studio, hardware, equipment, etc) how you can take advantage of what you like to do and become good on it.


    I hope it will clear things. I'm glad that there is people with the same questions here and people who take the time to answer.
    PS. keep sharing tips!!!
    Cheers!
    sorry for my english!
