When mixing rock and heavy metal, the question immediately arises: what actually defines rock music? Rock is above all loud, heavy and close to the sound, she differentiates herself from other genres of music through her harshness and aggressiveness from - and that's exactly what im mixing process are the main focus. Below we go into different ways to emphasize these aspects in skirt.
Also in the rock is of course again Quality of recordings determines how good the basis for the mixdown is: Even the best mixing engineer ultimately has to work with what was made available to him from the recording process will. So it is not only much easier to make a high-quality mixdown from a good recording in terms of effort, the finished mixed song can also pick up on aspects which are not available in a worse recording.
VOLUME IN ROCK MIXING
As far as the volume is concerned, the finished song must not actually be louder than other songs - the LUFS on radio and online platforms such as Spotify or YouTube are fixed and would ultimately always reduce the volume of the mixdown through volume normalization. The real challenge in mixing is much more that rock and heavy metal often heard very loudly by the listeners and therefore must be designed to also focus on to listen to well with the music systems and headphones turned up. In this respect, it's less about the fact that the song itself is always loud, and much more about the fact that it is too then sounds perfect IF heard loud. At the same time, songs are now also listened to and judged on smartphones, which means a lot different demands on the mix in terms of the sound quality of the end devices. We therefore test the sound when mixing rock and metal State-of-the-art studio equipment, in order to do justice to as many device types as possible.
LOW-END MANAGEMENT IN ROCK MIXING
The "heavy sound" in rock and metal, it occurs mainly in the low frequencies up to about 100hz. Therefore, the low-end management is usually the most important and time-consuming task: A specific frequency range should not be played repeatedly by different instruments, because otherwise they work against each other and blur into each other - ie in the worst case they are hardly audible. Due to the preference for low frequencies, however, in rock there are usually several tracks in direct competition with each other - kick drum and bass guitar in particular are problematic in almost all rock mixes. The solution is obvious: set the bass a little higher or lower than the kick drum so that they complement each other and give the song more power. Filters and equalizers can also be used here to ensure that all instruments are clearly audible and that the "heavy sound" is retained.
DELAY AND DOUBLE TRACKING: DENSITY IN ROCK MIXING
Now for the last point: the density (density). In addition to the focus on the lower frequencies, the "heavy sound" lives from a high density: by playing several notes at short intervals, the mix gets the necessary power. One of the most well-known tricks for more density is the so-called "Double tracking" of tracks, especially (but not exclusively) from the guitar: the guitar part is already recorded twice during the recording, so that it can be included twice in the final song with a broad left-right distribution in the stereo field. Logically, it is not enough to simply copy the same track and thus double it - that would not have increased the density. A doubling only leads to the addition of the amplitudes, ie a higher volume with the same sound. Delaying one of the tracks is also not a sensible solution, since shifting identical tracks leads to phase problems. An additional recording in the recording process is therefore absolutely necessary, which shows how much the mixing depends on professional preparatory work in the recording. We are happy to support you with our Recording studio in Würzburg or ours mobile recording solutions is available for storage, management and analysis.
One of the guitar tracks must therefore deviate minimally from the other, which on the one hand must be given due to the natural differences between the various recordings, and on the other hand can be amplified by the mixing engineer with an additional delay.
It's not just the guitar tracks that add to the density of the song: the rest of the instruments should too preserve or even amplify the natural delay from the recording be used to add density to the mix.
Ultimately, however, it depends on each song individually whether and to what extent these or other techniques should be used - here we can only give an overview of common techniques. We would be happy to support you personally with the mixing of rock and metal music - just take it with us without obligation Contact on!
