Music Production Tips, News, and more!
Stereo is a huge part of every modern song/mixdown. We all use it and listen to it every day.
However, not many people know that using the wrong kind of stereo widening techniques can severely damage your song.
Techniques such as HAAS, Mid Side, Frequency Shifter, and even chorus (if used incorrectly) can cause huge problems in your mixdown. There are even some expensive 3rd party plugins that cause problems right out of the box.
The problem is that these stereo widening techniques don't fold back down to mono properly. This can make your song sound soft, mushy, distant, lose punch and lose bass.
This could be happening right now and if so, it's not your fault. You've just been taught the wrong techniques.
That's why I made this free video lesson, and why I made the plugin i demonstrate in the video.
A little while back I did a live Maschine demo and Q&A at Icon Collective Production School in Los Angeles. In case you missed it, here's the video that shows the Maschine Performances and Q&A session with the ICON production students. Topics covered included Maschine, live performance, how I do my thing, genres today, studio tips, and music production in general. Hope you enjoy!
