Re: Master Mix Down. Computer or external 2 track mastering unit.

It seems the Qu-32 is a mixing console.. Are you mixing through it, or mastering through it? 99.7% of people mix back to a DAW. A very small percent use DSD or Analog reel to reel to mix down to...

Re: Mixing hiphop vocals to a 2 track instrumental

Re: Quality Issue

Granted your recording chain is not great, but it doesn't make sense that just by turning them up or bouncing your vocals once they're recorded, that they are boomy and distorted.

Re: Gain Structure/Stock compression question

You usually don't want to brickwall limit more than a couple/few dB on any bw limiter or the sound can go south quickly. As mentioned, it might be best to feather it in with a compressor or 2 before...

Re: How do I prepare levels for mastering?
