#5020081 Any tips on track "Loudness"?

Posted by TimMena on 10 January 2013 - 06:08 PM

Thanks for the replies guys, I'll try to focus a bit more on giving each instrument it's own place in the mix and mess around with compression. 


If it isn't too much of a bother, would you guys mind checking out a track I did today? Maybe you'll hear what I'm working with. 




Oh, and don't mind the mixing itself, I've yet to get better monitors than my av40's, and they don't translate well at all o.O

Hey guys, new around here and I have a problem that you guys might be able to help me with. 


When I compare my music to almost all other composers/producers, their's is just much louder than mine, professional or not. I lower my instrument tracks so that the master bus doesn't clip, but then it all sounds too low. When I put a limiter on the master bus to boost the volume, it has a crackling sound going on. I'm not really that good with mixing yet, but this has been bothering me lately, just looking for a little help, so thanks in advance.
