8 errori da evitare quando produrre musica
Joe Albano on Tue, September 15th 1 comments
So you're ready to record, mix and master that song/album/soundtrack? Joe Albano is here to ensure you don't succumb to any common pitfalls during the process. These tips should help...

Durante l'intero processo di produzione di installazione, registrazione, mixaggio, mastering e, ci sono un certo numero di problemi che possono sorgere, o errori che possono essere fatti, che possono avere un impatto negativo sui risultati finali. Qui ci sono 8 suggerimenti rapidi

1. Setup: Don’t wear too many hats

Molta gente

2. Setup: Don’t skimp on the monitoring

Ogni decisione che prendete tutto il progetto si basa su quello che si sente attraverso i monitor, quindi questo è un settore che può davvero

Fig 1 Monitoring is key—appropriate studio monitors and good musicians’ headphone mixes can make a big difference

Figura 1 Il monitoraggio è fondamentale

3. Recording: Don’t ignore the performers’ monitor mix

Proprio come si dipende da quello che si sente sul monitor da studio, gli artisti dipendono da quello che sentono nei loro mix cuffie. Se la miscela di basi e l'equilibrio tra di loro e l'esecutore


4. Recording: Don’t commit to processing on the way in

Fig 2 Processing added to a recording on the way in can often turn out to be too much later on at the mix stage—a gentle hand is best

Fig 2 Processing aggiunto a una registrazione sul modo in spesso può rivelarsi troppo tardi nella fase mix

Spesso, durante il monitoraggio, si può sentire che si

5. Recording: Don’t “fix it in the mix”

Quella frase è una vecchia industria discografica barzelletta


6. Mixing: Don’t mix the same day as recording & editing 

Questo potrebbe non essere sempre un'opzione, ma ogni volta che è possibile,

7. Mixing: Don’t try to make a mix sound like a master

Fig 3 Engineers are split over whether to add stereo bus processing in the mix, or leave it until the mastering stage

Fig 3 ingegneri sono divisi su se aggiungere l'elaborazione bus stereo nel mix, o lasciare fino a quando la fase di mastering

Può essere una buona prassi


8. Mastering: Don’t master your own mixes

Fig 4 A proper mastering facility and engineer brings not only fresh ears, but experience and a reliable monitoring environment to the important final step of the production process

Fig 4 Una struttura adeguata padronanza e ingegnere porta non solo le orecchie fresche, ma l'esperienza e un ambiente di monitoraggio affidabile per l'importante fase finale del processo di produzione

E questo ci porta al mio ultimo suggerimento

E quello

    All good, but I would add one more that's even more important than "Don't Skimp on Monitoring", and that is, "Don't Skimp on a room Treatment". I would argue that this is a cheaper (maybe), yet even more critical part of the monitoring (and possibly recording) chain. What's more is that often in project studios, you are recording in the same room as mixing, so the quality of your tracking will be improved too: you'll kill two birds with one stone. The unsexy thing is it's more complicated and takes a lot more time and knowledge than deciding how much you want to spend on a pair of shiny new near fields. However, even the best monitors available are going to give unsatisfactory results in a poorly treated space. Instead of spending $800 on a pair of high-mid end monitors, for instance, I would argue that money would be vastly better spent if you took $400 and put it into room treatment, and settled for some slightly less pricy (but still adiquate) monitors. On a budget, DIY solutions can be 4-8x cheaper than pre-made treatment, using the exact same materials and achieving the same results, but it takes lots of time and effort.
