Cool

Quote:then followed up by another filter section which is a passive filter desgined for the low range, and two active bands for the higher mid range and the high range.

Sound familiar anyone...? Grin

The bit about looking at the screen instead of closing your eyes and turning knobs... SO TRUE. I am so far that way these days, but it is hard! Once the Gyratec gets here though... Grin

Quote:I think this development is owing to the fact that somehow some stages have been skipped from the audio production process. In the classic structure of building up musical pieces, there would be composition, in one way or another, and then afterwards recording, and at that point you might already have a producer by your side which is some outer world influence, then you would give it to trusted hands for mixing, and finally the mastering would just be paying specific attention to each piece and then try to round it all up, so that the individual pieces work together.

Nowadays, many times the music comes direct out of the stage of composing, which is often strongly related to the mixing process already, or composition and mixing has been merged into one thing, and then the first outerworld process is the mastering.

I'm writing my album with this in mind, so I'm literally writing all the tracks now, with midi/VST's/guitar/whatever, then I'm gonna record EVERYTHING to Audio, then attempt to mix it, then send it to Macc and Scope for mastering.
I'm a firm believer in keeping those processes seperate from each other.
It insures I get through it bit by bit, and once I get to the mixing stage, I shouldn't be adding any more "composition" to it.
I do the odd eq tweak to fit things in at the composition stage, but that's about it.
I get a good sense of achievement doing things this way, and it forces you to hone in and develop the specific skills for each step.
Otherwise I'd be going in circles (lake the past 5 or so years! Roll )

no one else agrees then?

You all prefer to mix as you go along?

I generally mix as I go, but there's a lot to be said for writing something that fits naturally, rather than shoehorning it...

I'd say it depends on the music. With some types of music (and the stuff I make is in that category) the mix is part of the composition.

i used to think that way, and i do still make the odd tweak as i'm composing, but i find it to be far more benificial to seperate the processes.
i think it's because i can see a finish line for each process.

i threw out my shoehorn a while back :d i've a much more zen approach these days.

we'll see when i'm finished though!

so far i've got the guts of 5 tracks done (haven't mixed any of the m yet), i'm making good progress. Yes

Also composing with the mix in mind seems to minimize the amount of actual 'mixing' that you need to do... I mean, if I'm adding a new sound into a tune I try to come up with something (sound-designwise and noteswise) that'll sit nicely with the rest of the tune without needing a lot of work later.

of course!

but that's part of composition imo, not mixing.
