It's been some time since I've meaningfully contributed, but I do scroll the headlines daily.
On a (Fb suggested) whim I entered a remix contest on Skio Music. When I was a wee lad, EMF rocked my world, and when the song stems for "Unbelievable" became available I could not resist. I use Ableton Live 9 on a laptop, and mix on headphones (not ideal) but the tests in my car, on my cell phone and on an Anker Soundcore bluetooth speaker got me excited.
Would there be any interest in a write-up on what I'd learnt in my first try?
In my quest, I found two great YouTube channels:
I checked out White Sea Studio to learn more about a mastering plugin called Ozone. There is a great video here:
Jon Sine has some great insights about what makes a great mix, and you can watch it here:
In this video, Jon explains in an uncomplicated way, stripped of jargon.
There's still time to enter the remix contest for EMF's "Unbelievable", should you be interested (22 days remain). It's fun remixing your heroes!
