I have been having trouble making room with my mixes. I want to know what you guys resort to doing when you run into these problems. Here are a list of ideas I came up with that sometimes helps, but maybe you have better idea's to fix each problem. Troubles: 1. My snare's low end doesn't punch through. a. I could try cutting at around 200 out of my guitars and bass? b. I could try Side-chaining my bass and snare? 2. My Cymbals don't sit on top a. Maybe add 4k to the Overheads? b. I could try to cut out some 9-10k out of guitars? 3. My bass and guitars don't mess as well as commercial Mixes. a. Maybe bass isn't limited and/or compressed enough? b. Maybe using the wrong tones? *** The main thing going for me is my kick, bass and guitar relationship. Always sounding full and thumpy without distortion of course.
