In our last post, we did some mixing using only Eurorack modules in our system. This time we’re going to do the opposite of that: all mixing will be done inside of our DAW with no hardware. Let’s get started!
We’ve already talked about mastering in a previous blog post. There’s a lot that can be done (and needs to be done) at the mastering stage, but starting the mastering process with a good mix makes things come together much better. You wouldn’t put a bunch of fruit in a glass and call it a smoothie without blending it all together, right? The same goes for mixing a track. Who knew audio engineering could be so delicious? In this post, we’ll talk about useful concepts, gear, and techniques for mixing your patches in the rack and making them sound fantastic. In the next post in this series, we’ll do it all again in our computer.
NAMM, as we all know, stands for Newly Announced aMazing Modules, so of course we’ll be there showing off some soon-to-be-released toys! But of course, before we offer a preview there, we figured we’d give you a preview of the preview. Meta preview! Get ready.
A question we are often asked is, “how do I go about building a techno-oriented Eurorack system?” Fear not, young padawan! In this post we’ll go over some important concepts for improvising, make sure we have all the staples of techno in our rack, and build a few example systems. By the end, you’ll hopefully be well on your way to making some four-on-the-floor Eurorack badassery.
