Like a LOT. Often more than we do (and we're obsessed with learning). Yet their records still don’t sound great. Let’s explore the reasons for this.Because here's the thing:We don’t want you to be held back by something that could be a huge advantage. Of course knowledge is important, but for some people it can be detrimental to their success as an engineer/producer, especially when combined with a certain mindset.Here are some examples of that (we discuss those on the episode): learning all sorts of crazy drum production techniques but ignoring the much more important basics Knowing about a certain technique but not being aware that it's the wrong solution for the job Obsessing over technical flaws in a track can get in the way of choosing an emotional home runDeveloping knowledge and technical skill but not developing taste, vision and the ability to serve the songHere's how to avoid or overcome this problem:Be teachable and seek advice from people who have done it - that’s actually better than knowing a lot without having real experienceAlways be open to new ideas - there’s almost never a black/white, right/wrong. It’s mostly grey. Don’t forget that producing and even engineering/mixing is at least as much art as it is science.Keep in mind that when a problem is technically solved, it doesn’t automatically mean it sounds greatUse your knowledge as a flexible toolbox, not as a strict set of rules you always followDon’t be afraid to take risks, use new approaches, mix without meters, whatever makes you leave your comfort zonePeople don’t like know-it-alls - If you want to collaborate with others, keep that in mindProof of all that: A degree or any formal/theoretical type of education means nothing in this industry. It’s all about what comes out of the speakers and whether or not it makes people feel something. And just as important: The biggest opportunities always present themselves to the people who are willing to constantly learn and adapt and who also have the necessary people skills (being kind, open to ideas and critical feedback, etc.) - not the ones who start with the most theoretical or technical knowledgeFor full show notes go to: https://theselfrecordingband.com/116If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

Here's what you can do to compensate for a lack of low end in your recordings and add weight to otherwise thin sounding tracks.In this episode we're walking you through different methods of creating extra bottom end (or the perception of it) if the tone you have just doesn’t have enough of it.This is why you should know about these techniques: You can’t bring out with an EQ what is not there at all. If your track never had any content below a certain frequency, there's nothing you could boost, right? So you need to add new low end instead of featuring what's already there.Maybe you’ve recorded a small amp, or your playing high up on the neck all the time but still want the "weight", maybe your instrument is not a real bass, at all, but you want to make it sound like one, maybe your low end is there from time to time, but not consistently. There are all sorts of situations and reasons for why you should know how to add extra weight and low end to your bass tones.These are the methods we're discussing on the episode:- Plugins like RBass, MaxxBass or bx_subsynth- Multiband-Saturation tools like FabFilter Saturn or Steinberg Quadrafuzz- Other software/hardware tools and how to combine them to add low end- layering MIDI bass below the actual performance- Dealing with a too dynamic, inconsistent low end and how to lock it in place to make it sound bigger- How to avoid the whole issue in the first placeFor full show notes go to: https://theselfrecordingband.com/115If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

Benedikt just had this conversation on a masterclass that he did for a German Audio magazine.Our answer is almost always: Start with one amp, cab and mic, learn everything about it and make it sound as good as you can. Only then add more, if you really need to.And most importantly: Learn your cab!The speaker(s) and cabinet are one of the most (if not THE most) important parts of the guitar chain. That's why we've dedicated this entire episode to helping you get the most out of your cab or your IR/virtual cab. Here are some of the things we cover:All speakers within a cab sound different - compare them!ImpedanceVolume and cab saturation (open/closed cabs)Mic positionMic angleMic distanceThe “glue blob”The influence of the roomAnd again, this also applies to IRs/virtual mics! If you know the ins and outs of recording a cab with a mic, you can choose the right IRs quickly, pick and position your virtual mics with confidence, you'll finally know what to listen for and you'll know how to solve any tone problem.For full show notes go to: https://theselfrecordingband.com/114If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

But regardless of the strategy you choose (if any), there are just some things that you have to do no matter what, if you want the release to go well. And this episode is all about exactly that: Generating the assets you need before any music release! All the things you need to collect, create, take care of and think of when you're planning your next release.If there was ever an episode to take notes to while listening, this is it.

Hello friends and loyal listeners! As you hopefully know, this week, we've launched our first ever mixing course, Mixes Unpacked.It will be available at an absolute no-brainer of a price during our early-bird offer (goes away March 30th). We have zero doubt that this is gonna get you results, BUT since we've opened the doors, we got a couple of questions from people who want to make sure this course is a good fit for them (or not). So we'll do my best to answer them right now.Can we buy this as a band and share the costs between the band members?Yes of course! The program (and everything we do) is designed for self-recording artists and bands! Our goal is not to squeeze as much money as possible out of every single person, but to help as many bands/artists, as possible. However, if you buy as a band, you'll still get one account and only that one account can access the program. But you can consume the content together and you can bring your bandmates to the Q&A session. We won't kick anyone out for doing that and we just trust you that you will only share it with your bandmates and not anyone else. So, sure, be smart about that. If you split the costs between all the band members, each of you will pay less for this course than you've probably spent on coffee or pizza last week.---I'm busy and it's gonna be a while until I record or mix again. Should I still join now?Well that's up to you. Just know that prices will go up next week and we might even close the doors entirely for a while after that.You will need some time anyway to go trough all the material, prepare and implement everything and you have lifetime access, including future updates or additions. Also, the live Q&A session will be recorded, so you don't have to be there if you can't make it. You can leave questions in advance, so we can answer them and even if you don't, you'll get insane value out of the replay and our answers to all the other questions.So you can go through it at your own pace and there's no risk if you decide to jump on the opportunity right now.---How much time do I need to set aside for this?You can go through the video course at your own pace. The Q&A is the only scheduled thing, but there's going to be a replay. How long the Q&A takes, depends on how many questions we get. Again, if you can't participate live, don't worry. You can submit questions in advance and watch the replay of the meetup later. There's a lot that we show you in this course and it's pretty dense, so it will take you at least a few days until you've watched everything and took notes and then it's up to you to practice and implement everything. Whether you do it in real time, or binge through and then implement step-by-step is up to you. However you end up doing it - In the end you will make better records. Period. ---There is some more questions we answered, but you'll have to listen to the episode to hear them!---Hopefully these answers help you determine if Mixes Unpacked is the right fit for you.​​You can get all the details (including what sweet bonuses you get) right here. ​​And remember you can try out the program risk free for 30 days to make SURE you love it and that it's the right course for you.See you on the inside!-Benedikt & MalcomP.S. Join before March 30th and lock in a lower rate than everyone else will pay in the future.

Working on the songs? Refining the arrangements? Recording scratch tracks?All of that is fine and important, but the time you spend working on the songs and recording demos is actually still part of the writing process, while pre-production is a whole other step on the journey to a final record. The songs and arrangements should be finished (or close to finished) at this point, because there's still a lot more to do and to focus on in pre-pro than just capturing scratch tracks.  So let's chat about the real reason(s) to doing pre-production, as people tend to either treat it as a part of the writing process or just as being about laying down tracks to record to.Let's go!For full show notes go to: theselfrecordingband.com/110If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

Do you go back and forth a lot, constantly questioning your decisions? For a lot of self-recording artists the answer to those questions is "yes". Do you know when the mix is actually done? Do you know what needs to be corrected in the raw recordings you're working on? And do you know what needs to be done first, second, third, etc.? The answer to these questions is often "no". Malcom and I (Benedikt) give you a break down of our “mixing systems”, telling you exactly how we approach our mixes. Step-by-step.This is all about having a good process and knowing what you're trying to achieve in each phase. So that you can then be creative, completely focus on the task at hand and consistently make progress towards you desired end result.Understanding the whole mixing process better and coming up with a system or some kind of repeatable approach for yourself will help you stay focusedbe more creativemake better decisions fasterserve your songs betteractually finish your projectsAnd of course your mixes will sound better, too.Let's go!For full show notes go to: theselfrecordingband.com/109If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

Alone or as a band. How long does it typically take from there until you have a finished, mastered product that you can release?  The truth for most people/bands is, that the song is probably still not finished and ready to record. Even if they think it is ;-)In this episode we give you the full process and timeline. Without skipping anything. The only thing we assume here is that you have the right gear for the project, know how to operate it and that what you have is in good shape. This is meant to help you actually get things done (in case you're taking too long) or to help you realize how much time you actually need to put in if you want it to be great (in case you're rushing it). We will tell you how long we think each step could or should take you. We’ll also compare doing it all yourself vs outsourcing the mixing and/or mastering. For full show notes go to: theselfrecordingband.com/107If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

How much you can and should spend on making and promoting your music, your gear, improving your skills around music making or any external services to help you achieve your goals.Why we recorded this episode and why we think you should listen:We’re here to help you help you reach your goals. To help you succeed as artists. We're super passionate about that. That’s our why. And if you're super passionate about your music or your career as an artist, we wholeheartedly believe that your actions, including your spending habits and how you make use of your limited time, need to reflect your goals and priorities.Here's what we see over and over again:Many people can’t answer the questions: “What’s your budget?” "How much time and effort are you willing to put into this?" “What are you willing to spend?” "Are you willing to do what it takes and go the extra mile to make something really amazing?"“Here's what it takes, would that be worth it to you?” "How much time have you set aside for this?""Have you blocked those dates on your calendar?"“Can you find the time and can you find a way to come up with that amount of money?"Instead they just ask:“What does it cost?” "How long does it take?" “Do I have that kind of time and money right now?” They are looking at their current situation as if it couldn't be changed. They don't think about the potential, the return on investment and the value of something, they only see the cost and their currently limited resources, expecting some magic change to happen some day. All while they get very creative when they need to find time or money for other things they want in their life, although they claim those are less important.So you need to be very clear about the value and the ROI you’re getting in return for what you’re spending. And you need to be honest with yourself when you're defining what your true priorities are. You probably can't have or do it all.So what can you do? How do you change your mindset and behaviour if this is what's holding you back (it's exactly what's holding back most people)?Here's what we're doing in this episode:We give you questions to ask yourself that will help you define your goals, set priorities, figure out the value of a certain service or product (ROI) and calculate a budget that you can justify spending on your next music project based on all of that. In fact, you should be happily spending that if you do the exercise correctly. It’s like a mini coaching session that will help you discover your true “why” and show you a path to actually achieve what you claim is important to you.For full show notes go to: theselfrecordingband.com/106If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

So you need a way to get a great drum sound, even if the room was small and not ideal. “Great drum tone” is usually a combination of the punchy transient you get from close mics and the size, length, sustain, width, depth and character you get from overheads and room mics.On this episode we're discussing different techniques that you can use to get the most out of your close mics and overheads and then we're explaining how to create “fake room mic tracks” to make your drums sound as massive as you want, even if there are no "real" room mics in your session at all!Things we cover:Ask yourself: Do you even need huge sounding room mics? (maybe dead and dry is ok)(Parallel) Compression/saturation/transient shaping to get length and sustain out of close mics/overheadsDuplicating overheads and creating a fake “small room” mic pair from themUsing reverb and room IRs (and how to do that properly)Using room samples“Reamping” drum roomsGating room mics (sometimes parts of a “bad room” are okay - so only let that through!)Let's go!Click here to get The Room Sound drum samples we've mentioned on the episode (Affiliate Link - This means support for us at no extra cost for you, yay!)For full show notes go to: theselfrecordingband.com/105If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com

And even if they do, they are often not really sure which of those differences actually matter. We’ll break it all down into some basic, broad categories, explain the main tone and distortion characteristics of each of them and give you great starting points, as well as ways to figure out whether or not a certain amp is appropriate for what you’re trying to accomplish.We discuss:High gain / crunch / cleanTube / solid state“British” / “American”Hi/lo wattage (“big” / ”small” amps)preamp / power ampDifferent types of distortion pedalsTricks for getting the most out of an amp (i.e. using tube screamers for compression/mids/tighter low end, boosting with a pedal vs plugging directly into the amp, using attenuators, replacing/changing tubes, keeping cable chains short, ...)   Let's go!For full show notes go to: theselfrecordingband.com/103If you have any questions, feedback, topic ideas or want to suggest a guest, email us at: podcast@theselfrecordingband.com
