Remote Recording
3 Biggest Tasks to Make Your Mix Better Before Mastering:

1) Send the music and drums (anything non vocal) to it's own buss and do a (narrow Q) supernotch cut out of the 1Khz frequency
(SUPERTIP - Automate a bypass of the supernotch when a singer is not singing for full bandwidth music!)

2) Insert Low AND High band brick wall linear phase EQ cut on ALL tracks - right up to the lowest/highest note of that track - (Where it sounds good - For Example a Bass sound can be mostly safely cut at 8khz) (NO LOW BAND BRICK WALL ON BASS or BASS DRUM TRACKS) This completely open ups the low frequency JUST for the bass and bass drum (you can even sculpt separate frequencies for the Bass and Bass drum so that they do not compete with each other) and the high band brick wall leaves space for the voice in the high frequencies

3) Try Less Reverb - When a two track master is Compressed and Limited (made louder) the soft parts become louder - (reverb can be added add the mastering level) - A good rule of thumb - dial in the reverb - when you start to hear the actual effect - back it off and leave it! When Mastered - this gives each instrument it’s own ‘space’ and 3D sound without being washed out in reverb.


We are passing these on to you to make your recordings better!

An area of Mastering to consider:

Build an audio story! Micro Dynamics. Map out the form of the song, push and pull the eq AND dynamics from the verse, chorus, solo sections, and bridge to create contrast and make the important parts of the song pop out to the listener. Changes in the dynamics and eq from one section to another can and help to create emotional responses to your music and make your song stand out.
