4. Fitting in place
Let’s keep moving further. The main balance has been defined on the basis of the specified by us function of the available tracks, their position on panning has been built, and now finally, it’s high time the online professional music mixing and mastering audio services engineer would get equipped himself with an equalizer and add a lot more character and coloration to stems keeping the context in mind.
To avoid looking blind as many of mixing services specialists advise for a desired spectrum for work, let’s sort out guitar frequencies as it’ll be far more simply to make further decisions on its processing optimization.
The basic frequency area of a guitar sound lies between 160 and 1300 Hz. It’s in general, but in fact in most cases the rhythm of country and rock songs lies in the range of 160–700 Hz accounting for “fullness” and “warmth” of guitars. However, the same frequencies if they’re in excess add “muddiness” to sounding so be careful with them. By cutting the sound in this range you can make guitars a lot finer. To add common brightness, online mixing service engineer can boost a pretty wide peak by nearly two octaves higher than the basic sound – this range is responsible for brightness of instruments with metal strings.
Everything that is below 80 Hz (but it may be higher in reality, it depends on the particular project sent to the studio) is subject to cutting – musical value of this content is equal to zero and presents unintelligible low sound mumbling. Moreover, it beats out of reason during level balancing and affects the work of a compressor. If you're interested with what have read please check our professional audio mixing prices.
