I’m looking for some feedback, if you would, on an older track of mine that I just remixed/remastered with some newer VSTs and mixing/mastering techniques I learned. It’s still not quite right, but I don’t think it’s too bad. One major problem is too much low end rumble that seems to be coming from the epic drum kit, or contra bass, or both. I’ve EQ’d it with a low cut of about 35Hz both within each individual track and on the master track, as well as dropped the low-mids gain, ~200-250Hz, by about 1Db, but still too much noise.
Also, I used Cinematic Studio Strings for this one, and am finding a lot of digital white noise on the contra bass that I can’t seen to get rid of. Any suggestions?
The style of this piece is epic dark fantasy action.
As I said, I used CSS and CS brass on this as well as Audio Imperia’s Nucleus for the low woodwinds. NI Action strikes for the epic percussion, ProjectSAM True Strike for the timpani and Rhapsody Orchestral Colors for the whispering voices.
Tempo is ~140bpm in 2/4 time in the key of B minor which modulates to F# minor.
