Normalizing Is Bad?
sweepstakes posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionGenuine question! The way I see it, gain is a budget, and normalizing just makes you start the game with lots of money in the bank. I get it, you also raise the noise floor and the resolution is diminished a bit, but is that REALLY that big of a deal? Does that signal loss really matter that much? I thought that was the whole point of having much higher bit-rate effects processing was that you just had an order of magnitude less things to give a shit as long as the levels sounded right (and of course your monitoring situation was reasonably well-calibrated). Is this just a pristine audio from soup-to-nuts kind of thing? Is that what everyone is shooting for these days unless you're doing some intentionally, over-the-plate lo-fi witch-house-ecco-vape-goth-rave-seinfeld thing or whatever the kids are calling it these days? P.S. Not trying to pick on anyone here if we might have happened to have a germane discussion. This is one of those nagging "Am I just really stupid(*) or, is this that thing where everyone is afraid of asking the same thing" questions. P.P.S. Mods, feel free to merge... this was the most relevant thread I could find: https://forum.watmm.com/topic/70902-normalising-tracks * Also if I am just being stupid please explain. I will not get butthurt about being stupid, I promise.
Garage Band Drums - How Not To Suck ?
Stock posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionHi there fellas ! So, for the past year I've been making generic theme music for a video game I'm working on with some friends, and now that we've almost finished its development I'm trying to make it sound a bit better. Of course, I still have to work on the mix etc. but the main problem with all those tunes are the drums. The point is, I've been making almost every track within Garage Band. No fancy VSTs nor awesome instruments, just the regular Garage Band you get out of the box (I was trying to have a "MIDI" sound and thought that it was a good way to achieve that). However, the drums just aren't right. They sound weak and cheap (well, that's partly what I wanted but it went beyond my expectations and not in a good way). Hence those two questions : - Do you know a free/cheap drum VSTi that would natively work in Garage Band and sound a bit better than the generic drum kits ? I'm looking for "pop" drum kits - the soundtrack could be classified somewhere between cheesy funk and FM rock. - Do you have tips on how to improve Garage Band base drums ? I played with EQ presets, reverbs and tried to manually adjust pattern velocities but it never seems to get better. Our small dev team would be really grateful for any answer :) Cheers !
