    I'll add to this.

    2.5 When you see a thread with 0 comment but more than 25 views in the "Rate my mix" forum, be a gentleman and write at least a few words where the mix needs improvements.

    your wish is my command:

    http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/rate-my-mix-tone-threads/580249-pre-mix-test-any-help-welcome.html

    :heh:

    nah, I'm with you. It's just that I'm not always in front of the monitors to give any more advice rather than lower the snare..bla bla..

    BUT, in most cases, no replys here = better track again

    Well, there you go. Comment added.

    By the way, if you're not in front of your monitors, and you're listening to the mixes through some cheap earbuds, then I guess the advice would be even more valid since you're listening with the lowest common denominator "speakers". You already know what your favorite songs sound like on them.

    And you got to admit... A lot of the "advices" you see on the "rate my mix" forum are in the "Man... that Lady Gaga covers is teh awesome" lineage. Great for the ego, less great for mix improvements :heh:

    :lol:

    You're right, I should give more advice but I got tired of replying because I didn't get them when I posted (no, they were not that bad to re-track them again), now I'll reply in few cases :Smug::Smug:

    :lol: some complaint about the negatives, some about the positives :lol:




    back on topic, another advice would be "Don't reharse without protection"

    Learning is a process that involves FUCKING UP; if you don't fuck up, then you're not learning.

    Learn to comprimise... If you're a perfectionist then it'll never be good enough. Know when to walk away when its there.

    Good instruments are more important than good mics, compressors, eqs and converters.

    Ignoring what you think mic placement looks like, find (with your ear) where the best sound is coming from and put a mic there.

    Excessive editing is more important than good songs which are more important than good musicians, which are more important than good instruments, which are more important than good mics, compressors, eqs and converters
