After some thought, I’ve identified the key areas that I feel need improvement.
My feedback threw up a lot of the same issues as before, so this is mostly from my own experience of where I feel I could improve.
1. Creative use of Reverb
-Making use of contrast in the right places
-Using Reverb in “un-realistic” ways
-How “Big” should a space be?
2. Mixing & Tracking Electric Guitars
-Working with tone during tracking and mixing
-Best use of compression
-Adding interest to Rhythm sections
-Using appropriate pianos (or samples) for material
-Use of stereo space
-What compression is appropriate?
In addition to this, I’ve been informed of an app called Quiztones which gives quizzes on spot frequencies and EQ boosts.
I feel that this ties quite nicely into what I mentioned in an earlier post about improving the resolution of my frequency recognition. So, further to this, and also in preparation for my exam, I shall spend some time this afternoon testing myself with this app
