Songs for the Deaf is too compressed, but I still enjoy the album

It's definitely over-compressed, but I kind of like it that way. It gives the album an overall character that I don't see with a lot of records. Awesome ****ing songs + J.Ho, Lannegan and Grohl don't hurt, either

smoke, you get more awesome by the minute..... You have an epic beard, live near woods, listen to metal, grill stuff using makeshift bbqs out of old cans, and now we find out you have stabbed someone in the dick

Fine with me.

@Ian:
Um...somehow I've a feeling you're bullshitting...


Ian is more or less the very personification of bullshitting: concentrated essence of making stuff up and getting butthurt because people won't make an effort to "debate" him on "facts" that he pulled out from under his tail.

Or you could just stop, because you're wrong.
Because I'm sure you're just a true mixing engineer.

Here, without Google, want to tell me what frequencies typically make a good kick drum sound? What adds the "punch" and what just boosts mud? Because you're clearly am expert engineer who knows his shit and can straight up say that I'm "just plain wrong."

Bottom ranges between 60 and 125Hz. Attenuating below 80 reduces boominess. Attenuating between 300 and 600 reduces dullness, thuddiness, or floppyness(600HZ) and cardboard like sound (400Hz) Boosting between 1600 and 5000Hz adds brightness, attack and snap.

The defining sounds are its low frequency punch(50-60Hz) and higher frequency attack(1.5-2.5KHz.) Muddiness and boominess that is unwanted reside around 200Hz to 500Hz. Attenuating here helps clarify and tighten the punch. Too much makes it too thin.

I used a textbook. Is that cheating?

Ruffling your feathers is fun.

The frequency depends. Typically, it has a peak in the low end. (Find that by soloing the kick on a program such as Reaper, using a plugin like "ReaEQ".) As for sculpting it, you typically add a small amount of reverb. If you add too much reverb, it could sound like mud.


As for "expert engineer"? No, I'm not. However, I highly doubt you are either. I freely admit to be an amateur engineer. The question is, do you admit that?

Well I was kinda wanting Sam to answer but yeah that's right.

Only with the nature of the Avatar kick I personally find that topend boosts anywhere below 5000 sound like crap.

Hell, I don't even call myself an engineer. I'm just some douche who knows a bit about mixing and making shit sound good. Considered going to school for it but later decided against it when i discovered it was a field with practically no jobs available.

Read what Jako posted. What you stated is wrong on so many levels.

Ok, cool.

To be fair, Jako used a textbook.

Also, as I said, I'm an amateur. It's perfectly ok to call yourself an amateur (I'd even venture to say I'm a beginner), if you are.


That said, it's hilarious to ruffle your feathers. You always get so damn angry. Also, good job. The one time you can prove you know more than someone. Your parents must be proud.

Which textbook? It wouldn't happen to be a mixing textbook, would it? That would be something useful for me.

Audio in Media Ninth Edition by Stanley R. Alten. It's not strictly music but it does devote a good portion of the book to the subject. http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Media-9th-Edition-ebook/dp/B003Z9K6OS It's a college book so it's expensive as shit.


Quote by Ian_the_fox
Also, $20 for this: http://www.systematicproductions.com/mixing-guide.htm

One of the best you'll find for that price.


A Nolly endorsed book. I think I know where my next $20 is going.

Damn, I wish I had $155 to buy that.

It looks like a decent book. But, I'm looking at buying some more recording stuff soon. That $20 book looks great though.
