    my friend has the outboard eq, compression, and a mackie onyx 800 and I hooked my pod xt pro into his rack. And while playing around with it. I got better luck or I should say tones with outboard gear. I guess I have the curse of playing with vst's

    DUAL tracked in PodFarm.

    I recently discovered how to use the thing fairly well, just research around the message board, it taught me a LOTTTT.

    First time I hear this from any good producer. Normally I´ve heard "mix by yourself, don´t pay attention to annoying asshole making stupid requests like the bass player asking the bass to be louder until it muds up the whole mix" or "Have the least number of band members or other people possible around while tracking, avoids them making annoying """tips""" during the process". I´ve also gotten some nice techniques for annoying band members like when they start "could you turn the XXX a tiny bit higher?" you just move the fader up until they say "no, too loud" then put it back down to where it was initally and they go "there, that´s cool". or even worst, move a fader of an empty channel veery slightly fooling him into thinking your boosting his instrument, then he´ll go "there, that´s ok" so he won´t look like a tonedeaf bastard.

    Maybe I´ve only read tutorials and tips from asshole producers really hahaha

    well there's definitely a point where you need time alone with it

    but my basic point is, if the sonic quality / mix was perfect, they wouldn't have much to argue other than personal taste, and if you can't detect personal taste vs. whats right / wrong for the song... then you're still learning

    so hearing people out is definitely a good thing. it only benefits the project that much more.

    EDIT:
    for instance, when i was mixing the OCEANO stuff, the label owner kept crying about the bass needing to be loud. looking back on the mix i can definitely say im glad i gave in to his argument, the bass sits a little under just right. if i had the oppurtunity i'd tweak it up a bit more.

    in that case i was wrong in my bass level in my first couple of mixes

    yeah makes sense, as a producer you need to open your ears and listen to the thoughts of the rest of the band, it´s pretty much more "their" album than your´s given the fact it´s their songs and they´re supposed to have an idea on how it should sound. I guess it boils down to annoying gimmicks of musicians who have worst musical ear than a 70 year'old grandma. But most of the time, band should be listened constantly (opinions I mean)

    And yet again Joey delivers absolutely fucking solid ass advice. I'm seriously going to just go through your posts and copy the information you give haha. Great ass tips (the 200Hz boost on snare is golden) :headbang:

    Well, it depends on the snare, really, so you still have to listen to it and decide if it needs the boost or on the contrary. That said, I fullheartedly agree that Joey has given us some really great advice.

    "Double Ds"
