Flex, a r&b single mixed with Nebula 3

Post by 5tarme » Sun Apr 22, 2018 10:31 am

I did my first ever r&b single mainly with Nebula 3 libraries and a mix of nebula compressors and slate/softube ones. Not a professional just a artist. Was recorded with a Rode NT1 into a scarlet F*******e. Nebula libraries were on every track, the master, and the buses. It really helped me get that graininess in the vocal and overall glue that i hear in other r&b recordings. Some stand out libraries I used were Alex B's 73EQ, Modern White EQ, Pooltec EQ, and S*L 4k. I also used Henry Olonga's 73 preamp and U87 mic sample for the vocals. I would say I used around 15-20 libraries and at least 120 nebula 3's across the session. This session damn near brought my mac book to it's knees :lol: This is actually my first released mix/song as a artist and my 3rd completed mix in general. Started learning how to mix last april and released this song my first single this april. Been a year long process. The song is modern r&b with mainstream appeal in my humble opinion.

Not my genre of choice, but very well done! Great use of texture in the mix. Only one critique, if you have TimP's Shape Modifier (or some other transient modifier), it would take the drums to another level! They already sound great though, so that's just a nitpick/personal preference. Good stuff 5tarme!

Thankyou for the feedback guys! I've been getting a pretty warm reception I'm pretty happy and hoping to continue it with other songs I'm working on with nebula :lol: As just a artist learning to mix from scratch is rough so I had to put a lot of time in learning how to properly use nebula with gainstaging and all that. I'm using a 2012 macbook pro right now but when i upgrade my PC I'm looking into purchasing Nebula4 and the aqua plugins next 8-)
