Hi Ott, could you describe a bit your workflow mixing wise?
You record analog synths in ableton and you mix in cubase?
Or you still mix in your console?
Also how about eqing? Any favorite eq plugin or any tips how you approach eq in general in the mixing stage?... or even before :)
Thanks a lot
That's too big a question to answer in the measly 1000 character limit that Fanbridge allow me here.
EQ is just one tool out of hundreds at my [our] disposal and while useful, it's not a huge factor in my mix process.
More importantly for me is making sure all the parts work musically together and that I know what it is I'm trying to express. if that is in place then the mix is easy.
Can you pretty please from the bottom of my heart print some onesies. Our little boy is 9 days old and he absolutely adores your music, as his parents have for years and years. All the love in the world to you, from our family!Ott responded on 03/08/2016 Next question
Hi OTT. Im 32 years old. Been playing with sound on and off for 10 years. Some terrible shit happened so I quit it and came back to it 3 years ago. I work 5 days a week in low wage job. Im going back to college to try and get a decent wage by the time im 40. Problem is that I cant stop thinking about making music and I only really get a day or 2 a week..and sometimes not. Im depressed every day. All i think about is music. I have a teacher for theory and stuff. What im trying to say is that its the only thing that makes me happy. I might stop working so much and live on the absolute minimum but Im a afraid of the future. Afraid of being a broke loser. What do you think? I feel like I should give 100% to this. Its like...a broken dream or something. It hurts. Imagine you could only write tunes 1 day a week? Dunno. Its a first world problem I suppose. But its like a dull ache in my chest. Everyday. I should be doing music stuff...Anyway I love your latest album. I hope you live long.Ott responded on 03/08/2016
