As I slowly make my way back on here, I was inspired to write a lyric again. :) "Who Knows" is a song, funnily enough, that was inspired by an argument I saw on Facebook. I can't remember exactly what it was about, but it got nasty, and I was just sitting back thinking "these people are coming from the same place, the same wants and needs, and good intentions, just from different perspectives - and they're tearing each other apart" - I think that is true about a lot of things today, especially in the wake of current events where we tend to demonize each other for our beliefs, amplified by anonymity and just the overall nastiness of social media. And though I am no saint in this regard either, I decided to write a song about it. Lyric can be found here: https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/1036917/file/1036921 . . . and in the comment section. I hope I can get some takers!

Here is a fantastic breakdown of the "Mix With The Masters" series written by reddit user /u/furybuilt. Link to the original post: https://www.reddit.com/r/audioengineering/comments/hndhcw/my_observations_about_mix_with_the_masters/ FURYBUILT says: "It?s worth the cost of entry, I think. But it?s not like the Netflix of audio stuff either, it?s super specific. Here are some notes I?ve taken in no order and some are repeated if they?re super important a lot of audio engineers have crazy vocal fry when they talk - I?m looking at you Greg Wells almost everyone uses 1176s or LA2As in some capacity. I thought it would be a little more diverse but there truly are like 2-3 main compressors everyone uses honestly - the stems they work with sound better than 99% of the things the average engineer is working with, especially people recording at home everyone talks about vibe the entire time and getting things Vibe-y, this is almost exclusively tape or parallel saturation/compression generally, people like extremely gentle changes stacked and avoid dramatic compression, EQs and filters unless done for an effect. When done it?s only on 1-2 things for contrast, a visual term that no one is using during these videos almost all the songs they work with are trash mixed in with some nearly finished pop tracks. They are definitely songs and have beginnings, middle & ends, but it?s pretty draining to listen to repetitively Justin Bieber?s love yourself has a solo guitar part with like 32db of this horrible 3k sound and they just sort of go with it - truly eye opening and one of my favourite take aways. You can even hear it in the tune, with all of the processing it?s still there CLA almost certainly has Autism or something similar because he?s super odd but gives the best and most clear explanations of every single choice he?s making. It is almost as if he?s learned this sort of passive aggressive sarcasm to interact with people because I don?t think he?s really as surly as he puts out. Again, one of the more fun guys because he literally explains everything in tight detail some people DI bass, some people Amp it. Some do both - no right or wrong answer which I love because I always feel trapped on what?s right vs what works as if there?s a wrong answer API for dramatic music cuts and boosts, Neve for sounding ?good?... everyone just says they sound good and I think they mean they are warm and break up nicely with super solid, no fuss EQs in critical ranges. Pultecs are used by nearly everyone and Tube EQs are often used post compression for tone shaping apparently everyone templates like crazy and has 2-3 tricks they use constantly. CLA makes it all about snare, Tchad Blake using Sans Amp (kick/bass amp) & Devil loc (to lengthen what?s already there vs adding reverb) on every tune come to mind. No one seems to really know what stuff does, there?s a lot of shrugging and looking confused as they look at their mixes and all their own rules they?re breaking. A lot of ?I don?t normally do this but it worked? coming from people. people use fun techniques for monitoring bass like watching their speakers move a certain amount, putting a tissue over a speaker on its back, etc. Physical signs of how a mix is doing saturation generally adds fullness to a part by filling it out with new sound vs compressing and levelling what?s there. It?s critical for loud mixes, almost exclusively used in parallel to leave their original track present and clear there is no wrong way, but there is a correct way. Certain traditions are maintained while people like Sylvia Massey (the best) do really wild things like recording a guitar through a literal drill - sounds meh on the song is goofy but it?s interesting that it is technically possible. Truly love of the game stuff most sounds are 99% there - none of the tracks sound like shit coming in or have any noticeable problems, save for Beiber?s tune which is also ironically the most popular song in here people double vocals a lot with stereo widening tricks - Reel ADT from Waves, Doubler, Little Microshift, never in a verse that I?ve seen though, always a bridge or chorus guitar players get tones in the box, people mix 57s and ribbon mics everyone is using kick and snare samples, even when, say, CLA is mic?ing everything, he still gets a clean snare sample to use in the mix. The reason? Consistency. Easiest way to smooth out a rhythm section for pop style mixing I can?t stress this enough: before anyone has mixed anything everything sounds great already. It?s clear to me now that plugging into my Apollo and recording things dry is not the way. If I was going to do that in the future, I would have three sessions: tracking totally dry, finding tones and then finally mixing said tones. This is super important. SSLs are wide spread and are considered punchy and effective as the gate & compression are built in to every strip. Similarly, the EQs force you to really use your ears and are great for tidying up a dry sound with minimal Outboard/DSP usage. people listen loud, quiet, mono, in headphones - there?s no right answer. If you can get a good sound you?re good headphones don?t have crossover so you may accidentally make less aggressive panning choices and they can make things appear louder. I?m learning the ?oh shit? energy from a big section change is mostly transitions, stereo vocal effects and percussion/cymbals everyone uses like 5 mics: UXX (U47) family, 414s, Cole Ribbon mics and then individual people have like friends who make mics so they do that too. the top guys are using hybrid systems but are almost exclusively working in the box on pro tools tape emulation doesn?t sound like tape but all the guys use it and like it for different reasons. More vibe talk a lot of these tunes have lots and lots of tracks. Way more than I?m using even if the song is more minimal. Most emphasis is on vocals and vocal samples, then drums, bass, electric guitar and then all the acoustic instruments sort of in a pile that no one is using next to the shitter most engineers have 3-4 tricks they use over and over again in a way. They get pristine recordings of bad songs and then sort of play around within their constantly changing templates some engineers don?t use any stereo buss stuff, parallel, side-chaining, etc. 29.5) Lots of adding air to things, 16k+ on percussion & vocals. 30) everyone is tuning every vocal and most say it?s for vibe and the sound that people expect 31) lots of people using Waves plugins - especially the L1 & L2. CLA doesn?t seem to use a ton of his own plug-ins with MWTM, but maybe I haven?t watched enough 32) Andrew Scheps - I?m torn on Scheps. There?s something about him that makes me slightly annoyed, like he?s too square or something. He?s really all about like 3-4 hot takes about Audio and pushing his plug-ins. I don?t know why this is because he seems like a nice guy who gives out lots of free advice. Like an inverse of CLA, who seems tough but actually is a sweet obsessive who?s weird - again: I could just have a bad read on him but I?m not getting a ton from his stuff outside of: he mixes in the box, makes things really loud and has a deal with Waves Lastly 33) I?m finding it repetitive already, honestly. These videos could be boiled down to ?name your ten most commonly used plug-ins and why?. I would love to see some producers mix stuff totally out of their normal routine or be forced to mix things sort of archaically to relieve more thought process. What is has shown me is that by far the most important thing is recording it well. My dry stems sounded like absolute shit and I only realized it when I heard that everyone was mixing crystal clear tracks with no obvious issues. For example, if you aren?t in headphones or in a good room you probably won?t know what they?re doing because it?s a hundred small decisions that gently boost a few DB, unless they?re crushing overhead/room mics on a drum kit. I say this because my old mix choices were tone shaping and mixing at once, often causing huge, dramatic changes you can clearly hear A/Bing like it?s night and say. The masters don?t seem to do anything like that. Hope this helps someone!"

Good morning Kpeople! I have taken a few days sabbatical. Those of you who are close to me already know that sadly my younger brother Neil passed away last Sunday in the early hours. Age 53 - He was 7 years younger than me and had struggled with hard times for the last 15 - 20 years. He was a guy who would give you his last penny, give you a job and help out where he could because generally he could only see the good in people. Sometimes that cost him dearly , he made a lot of "fairweather friends" (which I think I will use as the title for a new song lyric!) But he had a wicked sense of humour and played many a joke on me I can tell you. So now I'm dealing with the funeral and the subject matter is music. You will not have heard of the band I'm going to memntion unless you are from the UK and are into MOR rock music. The band is Rooster, The song is "Angels Calling" from the 2005 album "Rooster" Check it out. Neil LOVED this album and in particular this song so please or offend this track WILL be played at his funeral service even if I have to set up a sound system myself. He had been ill a long time following a major stroke 2 years back but his death was unexpected - here one day and gone the next. Stay safe and hold on tight to those you love! Strange how you can always make a lyric apply to personal circumstances..... ANGELS CALLING You and I, we were one And i swore i'd stay forever But they say all good things come to an end, my friend Now its time to move on, but dont think that this is easy Cause its hard to be leaving you behind, but you'll be fine Oh, so if you believe, say a prayer for me I wont be here tomorrow, somewhere i gotta be Things you want to say, save it for another day Cause i can hear the angels calling, angels calling for me Does it help, if i say That i'm really truely sorry, and that i never meant for it to end, this way There's a place in your heart, where you know you'll always fid me And i'll be wherever you are, near or far Oh, so if you believe, say a prayer for me I wont be here tomorrow, somewhere i gotta be Things you want to say, save it for another day Cause i can hear the angels calling Angels calling for me Oh, so if you believe, say a prayer for me I wont be here tomorrow, somewhere i gotta be Things you want to say, save it for another day Cause i can hear the angels calling Angels calling for me But you and I, we were one And i swore i'd stay forever But they say all good things come to an end...

It would also be important that someone who, someone with technical knowledge superior to mine, will explain why we must respect the BPM of each collaboration.

ATLdrums (Brian) has shared this information with me and I think it is important to share it with everyone else as I was unaware until now Good to hear, sir. Yes, a lot of tracks have to be normalized upon downloading from Kompoz. I mixed down the seps from my pre-mastering Studio One workpage, so they are going to be at lower volumes (and some were intentionally very low in the mix). Everyone uses different DAWs and has different workflows, so it is best just to normalize everything that you download.
PREMIER
I know this will sound weird but if you've got a song with 120 bpm, mute this video and play your song and watch this couple dance. It is the coolest thing. This story is so inspiring.
I haven't been on here in a while because I stopped writing music for a minute but lately I've had a flood of inspiration so I thought I would share this track with my Kompoz peeps. https://soundcloud.com/user-814080712-571960052/heartbeat-no-2-someday

Hoping that a rock guitarist can help out with this 'Pull The Lever' lyric please? Rebecca (Reba1994) has said she's keen to do the vocal for it but we need a musical idea to be created first. It's a lyric about desire and sin, and I think could make for quite a fun rock song, hopefully! Pull the Lever (https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/1028707 ) (Verse 1) I'm in a den of iniquity You're here to preach to me But I think you like what you see I see the way that you look at me (Pre Chorus) As if I'm a one arm bandit machine A terrible curse or a wonderful dream (Chorus) Well, Pull the lever You're a believer And you might just make it to heaven You might just make it to heaven If there is one (Verse 2) Don't knock my den of iniquity This fog of smoke helps me to breathe There's nothing here that you can teach I see the way that you look at me (Pre Chorus) As if I'm a one arm bandit machine A terrible curse or a wonderful dream (Chorus) Well, Pull the lever You're a believer And you might just make it to heaven You might just make it to heaven If there is one (Bridge) Well, slide over here and put down your placard I know that you've got a black heart, And I see the way that you're staring Desire piercing the armor you're wearing And you might just make it to heaven Yeah, you might just make it to heaven (Verse 3) Mired in a world of antiquity A life spent on bended knee Burst your shackles and be free Cos I see the way that you look at me (Pre Chorus) As if I'm a one arm bandit machine A terrible curse or a wonderful dream (Chorus) Well, Pull the lever You're a believer And you might just make it to heaven You might just make it to heaven If there is one (Verse 4) Unused to this world of ambiguity You came here to preach to me But looks like you don?t want to leave I see the way that you look at me (Pre Chorus) As if I'm a one arm bandit machine A terrible curse or a wonderful dream (Chorus) Well, Pull the lever You're a believer And you might just make it to heaven You might just make it to heaven If there is one (Outro) (Spoken breathily) Pull three Lucky Sevens For your trip to Heaven
