Any tips on getting that high quality sound when exporting??

Hey guys, I'm gonna be sharing my lastest Caustic track soon, but I've always wondered on how to get that high quality sound to make my beats sound clean and crisp when exporting. Does anyone have any tips for me that I can use?

I usually try to have a clean and sharp sound using the effects (such as reverbs pretty dry (unless I want a very bright sound) .It sometimes use sounds that are already clear on the start. Definitely use an eq of mastering can to help.

Obvious as it sounds, but you

Obvious as it sounds, but you need to start with clean sounds. If your sounds aren't crisp to start with no amount of tweaking will suddenly magically make it sound good.

Usually the issue is having too many frequencies in the same bands interfering with each other and muddying the sound. The "trick" of the mix is to try to minimize this, so for example, if you have a bass sound, try cutting out some of the top end, if it doesn't kill it then you're limiting it's range, you might dull some sounds a bit but it will stop it from muddying the other sounds, it's all about balance. Likewise with higher pitch sounds, kill the bass. Pretty much all sounds will leak into the other frequencies so minimising this leakage yields a crisper sound overall.

Now you've got a good overall frequency balance, make sure you're not doing too much clipping on individual channels, the odd clip here and there isn't back but don't have everything overpowered. In the master section you want absolutely no clipping.

Now play with the master EQ to balance the overall sound, usually boosting the top end to give a crispy edge on drums, hats and crashes.

Something like that anyway, I still make it up as I go along! It's more art than science.
