Any Fostex users out there? I forget my model number - 8 track recorder (4 tracks at a time) with CD burner. I'm seeking advice regarding the order in which the tracks should be recorded and how they should be mixed. I have some M Audio speakers - which tend to sound "muddy". I'll get a mix that sounds good in the headphones only to have it sound like crap through the speakers. Trackwise - I usually start (first 4 tracks) with drums (electronic pads or "key" drums) - centered; bass - also centered; vocal - centered and either a guitar or keys track - panned slightly to one side or the other. - I'll bounce these to the tracks 1-4 bus, then add other guitar, vocal etc. I always pan bass/drums/vocal to center. - Anyway, this is how I've been doing it. Does anybody have a method or system that works best? Thanks! "Rusty"
