Volume advice? 2007-02-02 20:28:32 Reply

So right now I've got an awesome .flp on my computer which I've been working on for nearly a week, which is probably the longest I've worked on a song. =P It's pretty much finished, except for one thing - the volume levels are all over the place, disorganized, and chaotic. =( Can anyone help me clear these chaotic volumes up so I can submit it? =) Any hints, ideas, tips, etc.? =P Anything will do. Much appreciated.

There might be reviews at stake... and if this (dark text =P) doesn't work, go ahead and sue me. =P

Best suggestion I can think of, is for you to level them all off, I don't know how you've done it exactly, so I can't offer the best advice, specific to your needs.

But level everything off, for all channels, then master it to the volumes you desire

Ok... go here. Know that the main part where it's bad is from 1:41 to the ending. ;)

Try looping parts of it that are giving your trouble. Set all the volume levels to zero and then set their volume levels one by one so they match everything else. It might take a while, but its guaranteed to work.

Eq, compress, limit etc
Definetly EQ midlow ends because thats where your main problem is (The chaotic areas). First get rid of all interferences and THEN you can actually hear what needs to be changed volume wise.

And i'd really advise that you do it in the mix and not on the wave file because that wont give you the flexibility to fix each sound, opposed to fixing the entire spectrum range.

I dont hear anything more than that tho.

On my own note, id rather like all strings to be abit lower volume and the kick more dominant.

shit i spell good even after 12 beers, im strongly doubting my ears tho :P

Gah, I wasn't there to see all my replies - thanks for all the advice, I'll keep it in mind. =)

EQ? Equalizing? Are they the same thing? And what are they? XD (Go ahead, sue me for my lack of vocabulary/whatever. =P)

Bullshit, son. I'm sure after 12 your computer would be covered in beer-flavored harf juice.
