I found something that really helped me with the EQ games today, and I thought I'd share.

I usually really struggle with these challenges, but today I listened to the audio, came up with some words to describe the EQ'd sound (e.g. 'too harsh' or 'too boxy') then I looked at this graphic to try and identify the problem area. As a result I cleared level 5, and when the game ended I still had 3 or 4 lives left. Dramatic improvement. Hoepfully over time these ranges wi...

Hello to everyone! Maybe, there is a way to drop all of ur progeress in the games till lvl 1? I used to study hear mb, 3 or 4 years ago, and now this games are pretty hard for me. For example, i can't play DB King lower then 12lvl, cuz I was 22 for the last time i've played. So I basically locked in 12lvl and can't move any further.

And what about some useful tips to overcome some challenges in games? Are there any articles or something like that from the SoundGym? How can I...

Hello everyone!
I really need help from the SG community. I have a feeling that I'm marking time in my mixing learning process. It just drives me crazy and depresses me.

Friends, advise a book or a course that will tell about the concept of mixing, the sequence of tasks in this process. Not just tips and tricks, but something like Mike Senior's book "Mixing Secrets for the small studio".

I also have big problems with reverberation. If without it, then I can ma...

Hello mates!
The pick for this week comes from “Produce Like A Pro” site. It’s a free multitrack of a smooth, relaxing song. There are 30 tracks more or less, but many of them are takes of the same instruments, so don’t worry, the project i...

Hello! I recently joined SoundGym and have discovered that I really struggle with hearing compression!

In cases where the attack / release settings are heavily exaggerated, compression seems very noticeable to me.
However, in cases where "normal" settings are applied, I can't really perceive the effect compression is having.
I have found the "Compressionist" game fairly challenging at times.

I'm reaching out to see if you all can share some tip on...

Is anyone else experiencing soundgym crashes?
It happens maybe once in 20-30 games or so where the game just crashes and the site reloads. This is extremely frustrating, especially when you're about to beat your own highscore after ages of EQ mirror (or any other game) and the site just reloads without saving your score.
This happens in every game. On some days it happens a lot (like today) and sometimes it doesn't happen at all. I have opened multiple technical support tickets b...

Hey guys, here’s my version of “El Marinero”
this is an interesting challenge for me! I did only technical mixing and a little automation, I didn't have a lot of time to work on this project. now I would fix a lot, I spent no more than 6 hours on it and am not pleased with the result. I tried monolithic and punchy low end, but it didn't work out very well, and it also didn't work out to create an interesting space for the vocal. and it looks like i did a lot of saturation f...

Hey guys,
here’s my version of “El Marinero”
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ll3zjLKmsezjsS0SqR7XhDqd8pOrNNWs/view?usp=sharing

I decided to cut the intro and start the song from the first kick shot because it’s a more straight beginning, for me, then focused mainly on the reggaeton sound, so the relation between kick and bass and the pumping/energy effect, then I processed all the other instruments trying to get consistency and coherence.. ;p

Plan Caliente – “El Marinero”

Hi all!
lately it turns out that I make mixes in a very short time, on this mix I spent no more than 3 hours in total, this has its advantages - you have to be more efficient, but the quality may suffer. But still, the mix turned out to be quite good to me.
the main work was done in the bass guitar, and then I set the volume levels, panning and a little space. Out of the ordinary - put the de-esser on the master))

My first reggaeton, is not my favorite style but I had a great time. I have given priority to rhythm and voice, which from what I have seen is what is done in this genre. The voice was poorly recorded, with a lot of room sound and clipping in the loud parts, I applied de-reverb and de-clipping to fix it. I entertained myself with backing voices with phone and delay effects to differentiate them from the lead voice. I intentionally left the guitars in the background. There are a lot of percussion...

He is my mix of "El Marinero"

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rn3uorbmf7iynj4/Plan%20Caliente%20JM%20MIX%204424.wav?dl=0

A quirky song so gave it a quirky fun mix . the percussion upfront with vocal effects back in the mix

Made some of the SFX stereo along with the acoustic guitar to add width
i could have played around alot more! :-)

Hope you enjoy

Hello Guys,
here’s my version of “El Marinero”
https://mixup.audio/playlist/Woos2kBh3c

This is the first time I mixed this genre, but it was quiet fun to mix.
Started with gain staging, HP, LP as required, EQ, compression etc. as required, aux sends for FX (reverbs and delays)
and automation on some elements.
I didn't master it in any authentic way, just a limiter to bring it up to -14 LUFS

As always, any and all comments are welcomed and appreciated.
Th...

Helllo everyone

My approach to Plan Caliente - El Marinero - is just here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xaAYlKDS9Vtq5nL_Et17LKV3ZVnDK2bP/view?usp=sharing

I used the SSL E-channen-strip - with some EQ and compression around 2-.3db.
I put reverbs and FX on the tracks and I did some automation.

Thanks for listening

Hello people of Earth! Here is my mix of Plan Caliente – “El Marinero”

I'm semi happy but I need more experience mixing vocals. This past year I really concentrated on music. It's now time to learn how to get great vocal sounds. An awesome song pick. Super fun. Let me know what it sounds like on your system. Thanks

Warning! This statement is biased, inaccurate and self-serving.

Pre-SoundGym:


After two years of SoundGym:


Same source tracks (session).
Disclaimer: This post is in no way endorsed by SoundGym and is totally a self-promotion stunt. But still, it’s true!

Hi guys any idea where to get free multi-tracks for practising mixing. I know the well-known websites but maybe any suggestions where I could get genres like nu-jazz or any modern genres mixed with jazz? Thanks in advance.
