    Band Mixing Tutorial
    Hullo. Are there any tutorials on mixing a basic band setting ( recording in Logic 9 ) ? Indie or rock. Or any parts of MPV where I can learn about mixing DAW drums ( mine are Addictive Drums ) in with Bass guitar , guitar and vocals ? I'm getting a bit lost in bass drum frequencies clashing with bass guitar and using the room/overheads into the overall sound.I do get tips but I'm looking for a tutorial specialising in this, a bit like the R&B and Electronica ones. Thanks ! I'll keep on practicing in the meantime

    Well... I'd suggest the mixing pop in Pro Tools tutorial - it's very good and review the R&B and Electronica ones... I'm pretty sure there's tips on subtractive mixing techniques to help the kick drum and bass sit in their own frequency ranges - in fact to get all elements of a mix sitting well. Sorry - that's probably not what you wanted to hear! oh, btw, I also really like Greg Townley's Sonic Dimensions Mixing tut: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/sonicdimensionmixing[/url] :)

    Thank you, Rounik. I was just headscratch about the way the kick is heard in all the mics rather than one distinct track. I'll look at all the tutorials you recommend. That's the great thing about subscribing too. Cheers, again !

    Hey logicluvva, Do you mean when you record a live kit with multiple mics you can hear the kick "bleed" into the different mics and therefore audio tracks? :) R

    Re: Band Mixing Tutorial
    It's ok. What I meant was , like say in Ultrabeat...I'd been using kick, snare, hat channels multiply output.Easier to keep track of the sound. In Addictive Drums , there's the close-mics, then the room and the overheads too.I multiply output them and try and balance the sound of the overall drum kit. So I was just wondering how to keep an ear out for the kick's interaction with bass guitar. It's just a case of getting more and more stuck in and seeing how people in the real drum environment record and mix ,so I can mimic it in Addictive Drum based songs.As I was a little confused about how one checks on the kick interactions.When it appears in close, room and overheads. Cheers
