Djenty Periphery-ish Mixtest--Low End & Mastering Problems
I'm having major problems with the feel and low end of my mixes. Usually, I get a mix I'm pretty satisfied with, but once I get to the mastering stage, it becomes apparent that the low end is all over the place, and there's usually too much of it when I compare it to reference tracks in iTunes.
In this particular mix, I'm going for a PIII-esque mix. While too much low/uncontrolled low end is likely a major contributor to the problem, my weak mastering skills aren't helping. I also think my drum mixing is iffy on this track, partially because I'm new to NI Modern Drummer, and mixed the drums with only the built-in mixer.
So I'm really not sure where to start to fix these problems, but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The master chain consists of a HPF around 40 Hz, ReaComp (use subtly), ReaXComp using only the low band, and a free mastering plugin with a compressor, limiter, hf limiter, and clipper.
