  1. Another way to jazz it up is to hit on the end of two and four. For example 1 2 3 4 1 2 and(crash) 3 4 and so forth, if that makes sense. Listen to jazz standards and get an idea of the patterns the drummers do.
  2. Thanks Dr. Rod, that's exactly what I was looking for.
  3. Ah, I think the real question that I just want answered is: When it is obvious that two instruments sound like they are clashing, how do I know what frequency to cut off and what not on the two clashing instruments. Like on your little model, how did you know to filter below 1K on the piano? The same for other instruments. Ultimately I think these are the questions I want answered. Sorry if before I was clear.
  4. Thank you Dr. Rod, you are the first to answer some of my questions. I just want to know how things work. Instead everyone says cut this and use that, but what does it do and how does it work. Like I said, I want to know the terminology to better understand the subject and to know what I'm dealing with. I'm not saying that the other stuff is not what I want or not usefull, I will need it when I figure this stuff out first. I Thank you and everyone who has helped me.
  5. All I need to do is understand different frequencies of instruments and how to manipulate them with EQ's and know what it sounds like.
  6. I understand most of this, it is just the terminology is not clicking in my head. I need more pinpoint answers to all of these. I apolagize if I seem like I don't know anything. But I am new to sound processing. I can't seem to find the answers I am looking for anywhere. They are all too broad, I think. Maybe they aren't and it is just me.
  7. What does it mean to EQ the high ends and low ends of an instrument like what Zircon said a little back? How do you boost or take out frequencies using the EQ?
  8. Right I understand, but how do you EQ an instrument without interfering with another and how do you know if it is interfering. How do you interpret the vocoder and use that to know what frequencies are overlapping.
  9. How does one EQ frequencies to a certain frequency range to allow them to not interfere with other instruments in that same frequency range. OR am I totally wrong on this question.
  10. Thank you for your time and patience on answering my questions. It is greatly appreciated.
  11. That's just the thing, everyone talks about watching the frequency ranges and not to let them overlap. How does one know what frequencies are overlapping and how to find that and so forth. I realize that it is great to listen, but how does one know what to listen to.
  12. How do you tell where the frequency of the instruments are at.
  13. Typically, what are the frequencies of the instruments if I may ask.
  14. Hello, How does one use effects effectively to make the mix sound authentic, natural and not muddy. What of the effects are to be applied and what in the effects should be done to make the instruments sound "independent", if you may, and clear of other instruments. Thanks for the help
  15. That is one of the best games. That game made my childhood. Ya know, wouldn't it be great if someone would remix the soundtrack to that game? No one is likely to do it but hey, its all good.
