Ojo en mi
Ojo en mi it’s a long EP, if you have been up with my blog like with a Netflix series, you would know what I’m going to talk about.
As referred in the song’s page, this EP is an other important step in my producing career because it’s filled with strong lyrics, touching sensitive topics and hard beats produced for it.
You can associate all this with mixing and mastering it. So great inspiration give great work.
Today this post will talk about on the strategy I choose to achieve the quality you can listen, you can find details about the lyrics on the dedicated page.
I won’t get too specific about mixing, this is just an over view to explain what changed on the process that is so important.
Maybe you know the difference between mixing in the box and out, if you don’t, let’s just say that in the box is with a DAW with no analog gear and out the box is using only analog gears. The 2 big opposite.
Listen the single and find out other details the song
You can imagine that today is hard to find a record of today made only with analog or only with a DAW.
Mostly is hybrid because analog give the definition of the sound, and a DAW with plugins is comfortable, fast and has recall.
What I did was set a channel strip for the vocal that could clean up them, and set a stable dynamic before I sent the channel out put to 2 mono mixer channels working separately.
The first with a moderate compression and the second on a lower dB but with a heavier compression as a reinforcements.
Cool, isn’t it? There are lot of way to process the signal to get really good results.
This is just a trick that changed my approach at mixing, I started with this one and now I know enough to know where and when to use them.
Follow the blog and soon I will do post of only productions, mixing and mastering.
