Handle your low-mids with 💛. They are what most producers struggle to get right. Not enough and your track will sound weak. Too much and it'll be muddy. A gentle boost might add weight, a gentle dip might make it light.
If you use saturation, it's a good idea to filter it out of the low-mids if you want presence AND definition.
From 01/17 to 01/24 #Fedilab will be fully free on the Playstore.
The idea is to attract some people to the Fediverse. During this time, don't forget that you can invite people by using the app. There is an easy step by step to create an account with it.
Musician > Song > instrument > mix > mastering
Mastering is the last step in your music. Technically it's the least important, as it will not make a bad song good, are an out of pitch voice sound good.
But it can bring you this *magic* that you were looking for.
So here I am crafting happiness for musicians. 🎚️🎧

A question I often get is: is my mix balanced? Here my tips:
- check at low level.
- check when you're not in front of your monitors. Walk in your room.
- Your own instrument is too loud.
- back 2dB what's driving your track. Is it still good? That's how you avoid overmixing it.
Initially, I had been planning to make @RedactedLife's support page link to my fosspay instance. After a conversation with a friend about the state of things, I've decided to make a list of some lesser-known developers and projects that are vital to the open source ecosystem and encourage listeners to support them. I don't really *need* the money and am happy to pay for everything out of pocket but these people often depend on donations for their livelihood.
If anyone has some recommendations, please send me a link!
For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”
We need more media platforms like that.
There's no overnight success. Even the fast and famous musicians (think YouTube stars/reality show) worked years and years honing their skills, crafting music, rehearsing and having bad days.
So keep doing music, make great art, build yourself as a great person and if you want to succeed, learn music, business and not being an asshole.
I currently working on a classical music library on the open.audio Funkwhale instance. Since I want the library to be public I'm searching for classical music in the public domain or with a Creative Commons license. So any tip is much appreciated.
