    Production tricks

    Mic mechanical noise of playing synth to make it sound live

    Do a pitch envelope on a copy of a sound to give volume******

    Use gated reverb on a synth patch

    Use desser on drums

    Use vocoder with the carrier and modulator signal the same

    Use short delay with feedback

    Duplicate, phase shift, detune

    Pan a different waveform left and right and mix in with original.

    Use a compressor buss for kick and bass together
    A dark room with few early reflections provide acoustic depth

    For stereo, EQ on a graphic EQ the left with every odd band down and the other every even band down
    Pitch shift down a duplicate of a snare and add 100 perfect wet drum room reverb





    I've got moar if you'd like ;)

    Duplicate, highpass at 4k or so so just sizzle, color it a bit, put chorus, put back in

    adding a bit of a predelay to a reverb brings it "closer to the wall", diffusion makes the high and low frequencies decay differently. try compressing the early reflections

    have the effects added be added for emotions

    to set limiter's release put the threshhold really down and mess with the timing

    put predelay to quarternote

    Well done for trying to help people but some of these tips are rather misleading & will only be effective if you're going for THAT sound.
    A brief explanation of why the technique may be useful would benefit people better.

    I wrote these down for myself to remember them and I just felt like sharing so that would explain it but thanks you for pointing that out! Certain things in here are simply production techniques that can be used, who cares if your pre delay is set to a quarter note, it has to sound good in the end
