OTT, do you arrange and compose your music and then mix or do you mix while you're arranging? I always get caught up doing both and never finish anything. I can't seem to find a method. Any advice? TY
Mixing is its own distinct process.
The way I avoid the temptation to constantly fret about the hi-hat sound when I'm supposed to be arranging vocals is to spend most of my time listening in mono on a small cheap speaker.
It is perfectly adequate for judging the quality of the vocal take but meaningless in terms of the mix - meaning that there is no point in making mix judgements.
This frees me to concentrate on everything else.
Discovering this was the breakthrough which meant I was finally able to finish tracks.

This ones been bugging me for a while: how did you make the "synthy jawharp" sound at 2:55 of Hilbert Space? Might i venture to guess that it's a ms20 sent through an autofilter and distortion?Ott responded on 04/18/2012
