Let me first start off by saying in no way, shape, or form am I a professional music producer. As a matter of fact, I’m a long way from it. I say this to let you know that nothing I say here is concrete information that you must follow if you want to be successful. On the contrary, it is simply advice for you to use and then decide whether or not it was helpful for you. In music, there are no rules. Remember that one guy that said you should only cut on EQs and never boost? Yeah, he’s wrong. You are the creator, you determine how you want things to sound and how you want to go about getting it to sound that way. At the end of the day, if it sounds good, it sounds good.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
