Another tune: Infected

Here is my second tune made with Caustic. All samples are from Big Beard Audio's Real Drums vol.1 and Strings and Keys vol.1. I found these samples so fun to play with I felt the need to showcase only these sounds as they are very well put together. A big thanks to Big Beard Audio for their efforts. I had many OCD moments on this track, re-programming the drums a few times and I re-did the first half of the track over the last few days. I really learned how powerful the PCM Synth can be as well as the effect rack. My rack consists of 4 PCM Synths, and 2 Beatbox machines. Anyway, enough talking and on to the music, enjoy-

Any constructive criticism is always welcomed :)

Sounds good what you did

Sounds good what you did there. Yes, hats of to BBA for the Guitars samples, they certainly have that character in your track especially with your filter mods.

Good job sir.

Thanks for listening. What

Thanks for listening. What can I do to make it better, it seems to be missing something? Dynamic range is limited? One of my downfalls is mixing I think, my levels, panning and spread never seem to be quite right. Maybe I just need more practice?

Good track, mixing sounds

Good track, mixing sounds more than allright to me. I'm just starting out and trying to figure things out for myself though (discovered the panning problem in the nasa thing was caused by width and managed to fix it, maybe I'll upload someday, next year or something).

The best way to learn mixing

The best way to learn mixing and such is to keep on doing what you're doing.

Each mixing console is different from another, control layout, features, EQ type and Q-spread etc..... Caustic Mixer console is unique and quirky in its own special way, just gotta learn its characteristics, and you'll figure it out. Experiement, break the rules, go crazy, you'll get your sound soon enough.
