A music tip I stumbled on recently

Post by Skunk on Tue Apr 16, 2013 3:31 am

So i'm not sure if windows has this setting as a default.. but it's recently been a bit of a game changer when it comes to adding the right amount of compression to my tracks + mixes.

-firstly, go into control panel in start menu.
-open up hardware and sound.
-then open the actual sound options themselves, and double click whichever playback device you use.
-click the enhancements tab, and look to see if any of them are enabled...

loudness equalization has a dramatic effect on compression and overall loudness.
bass management changes the fuck out of your lower end frequencies.

these are FANTASTIC if you ever find a movie which has music thats 10x louder than the dialogue. It really helps even out all those volumes. but not so great if you're trying to mix and EQ a project!

so hope this helps anyone out there Smile

should also mention, there's these two enhancements aswell:

- virtual surround (i really dont like this effect... but if you're on acid or something... then have at er)
- room correction (bit of a subtle effect... I dont really see how its useful)
