CLEAN UP YOUR RECORDINGS – MAIN FEATURE
Make rough and ready tracks sound rich, powerful and professional with our techniques and advice! If you've ever spent hours recording only to later discover problems like harshness, boxiness, non-existant bass, poor timing, rumble, noise, hiss, and so on, then this is the feature for you.
You'll learn how to:
- Fix boxy, dull or harsh guitars
- Remove annoying ringing from drums
- Bring back the bottom end of bass-less recordings
- Trigger shoddy drums – replace them with powerful samples!
- Fake double-tracking from a single recorded part
- Control "jumpy" frequencies in vocals
- Patch up dropouts, mains hum and other artifacts
