Become A Ten Times Better Musician


Using Psychoacoustics To Improve Your Music __________________ 1. Spacial Location Placing sounds at various spatial locations to achieve a sense of width and depth can prove to be the difference in the quality of your music. Suggestions: To achieve width effects that are useful are chorus, delay, and stereo imaging. When focusing on this, usually there is a contrast between elements that are more centered and others that are wider. Use your own judgment and preference as to which elements go where and reference how your favorite song sounds. Reverb is also useful in relation to the distance of the sound and how far and or close it appears to be. __________________ 2. Volume Vs. Presence A lot of times we confuse presence with volume and having an understanding of the two can be massively beneficial and save you a lot of time and frustration. Look at a song like a live band on stage. We’ll say you have a singer, a guitarist, a bass player, and a drummer. If you put all of these people in a straight line right in front of you all the sounds would sound cluttered and none distinctive. Now take the guitar player and move him to the left and the bass player to the right. You immediately would pick up on these two instruments because they now appear to stand out from the linear playing even though they still are playing at the same volume. This can be accomplished by panning elements left and right to give space and presence. __________________ An understanding of psychoacoustics when mixing can be immensely helpful and we suggest researching a little bit about the subject! 🌎🎵#MariNation #Music #BecomeABetterMusician
