Ive been reading this thread from the beginning so I can learn as much as I can without asking the same o' shit (im around page 30 or so).

Anways I havent read anything about this, nor have did I find much with the search. Here is my question: has anyone tried or heard much about Native Instrument's Komplete VST package thing? It looks really nice and high quality, just not sure how much you can do towards electro though.

Any thoughts are helpful.

Can someone that has Rob Papen's Predator installed on a PC or a MAC upload the Predator Blank Blank Preset to the forum so I can get it? It's missing on my hacked version...

[u]My knowledge of mixing stuff down/u]

ok so far here's how i'm trying to get my tracks mixed down, I've got a en EQ 8 an EQ 3, spectrum monitor and a compressor on each track, for mixing down. I've been soloing each track then with the cut buttons on the EQ 3 are listening to which EQ shelf of each track is most prominent and which parts can be turned down or compressed to make sonic room for other tracks in the mix, then I go to the EQ 8 tweaking it accordingly then listening to the whole sound of the track solo'd and then again with the rest of the music. Then going back and tweaking it some more with the EQ or compressing it to varying degrees.

Is this a good approach/ what am I doing wrong what should I be doing differently?

Depends on the person. I like to have one copy of the artist mix down so I can get a feel of where he is trying to go with it.

He'll prob. charge you more if he is going to mix it for you as well... but you can just speak with them and find out.

Leave plenty of head room so that he's got room to work.

If you need a guy let me know a friend of mine masters audio for warner brothers he's amazing. Best resource in the world.


So, the main problem i'm having is the playing our tracks live. In a computer, stereo, or ipod they sound decent, but once i mix them in with other tracks in my set you can deffinitely hear the difference in the mixes (our tracks are always extremely low heavy and loose crisp through big systems). I want to be able to maintain the punch and crisp that the other songs we play have.
Well i guess what I'm getting at is how much would your friend charge for mastering? and how would i go about getting him all the necessary stuff to master 4 tracks?

so i'm gonna dj at metropark this saturday and i need to edit my music so it wont have any cuss words in em. What would be better for editing the cuss words Audacity or Ableton? I've never used Ableton. But i always hear you guys make edits with that program. And jfk makes his edits with it too. Just wanted your guys' opinions.

btw what i usually do 2 edit the cuss word in question is just reverse it.

if you're just going to be reversing the audio then audacity is a lot easier and a lot quicker. if you want to rearrange parts of the song and make a legit edit, use the ableton sequencer.

If you don't know Ableton much already then use Audacity... things will get much more complicated in Ableton but when you have more time learn to use Ableton cause it's great for making DJ edits of songs...

In audacity just highlight the are and go to effects and reverse... it's that simple...

Dude me too...

I finally figured out how to expand Impulse passed 8 channels and route each sample to it's own bus... I am trying to figure out what program to use to record a video of how to do it. Does anyone have a program that does this well and in good quality?

I'll post instructions about it here later. I'll also include my efx chains etc etc.
