you are right Kcirr3d
i am certainly not a GQ wit the EQ, an i do have Alot of filters all over the place! the thing about compression, i can never ever find one that i like, so instead i try to give everything a very light distorsion, i understand the concept of what compression does an why its needed but, i have found that some breakbeat editing techniques need different settings with compression, or the edits jsut sound awful, you can blatantly hear this in liquidswords, im trying to use the distorsion to get the hiss of the amen a bit more prevailent, tho it sounds messy at parts, Especially when i turn on the flanger at one point.
i realized my biggest problem with these tunes, was my best habit!
all 3 of those tunes were in the same rns file, so instead of making new tracks i would reuse them, since renoise does not keep a record of where the dsp settings are at unless ‘Individually’ set in the automation area or pattern editor, i would end up changing settings dealing with other elements, an then it turns into a mess,
so no matter how helpful it was to have all of them in the same file, it is also my biggest problem.
developing song template formulas, and preference rule sets are such a dismal place. tho i feel i need them, i really like having everything setup!
i like having all my breaks & rns instruments, all already setup.
tho, music making for me has been and very much so ismuch much more about troubleshooting & frustration, than actual music making.
i find myself never finishing anything because ive gotten to a point where, when i cant get an idea the way i want it i move on to another idea, so my creative time is spent running in circles on a path of least resistance bouncing from 1 sidetracked idea to another! if i could disconnect the right side of my brain when i feel creative, i would have a few catalogs worth of finished music!
thanks for your input man, i have seperated the tunes from each other, so fixing them will not be as hard as they would have been before, at the current stages of them i think they might be getting ready to really need proper mixing, i dread these times the most, listening to it so much that i dont want to hear for another year!
