Hi, I'm using Garageband for creating some demos, and am looking for some help/suggestions because I'm having a hell of a time trying to get the MP3's that I'm making (in iTunes) to sound anything like the tracks created within GB. I'm actually quite shocked at the difference between the original tracks and the final mp3. One thing that I find consistently is that the vocal track is quite a lot louder/more prominent in the finished mp3 than the guitar tracks are; whereas in GB it is hard to notice reverb on the vocals, it is very noticeable in teh mp3 version. But perhaps the most shocking difference is in the drums. The original drum tracks were quite loud, and 'full', i.e. they had a lot of depth and punch, and were quite up front in the mix. In the mp3, the drums have been reduced hugely, lacking depth, sounding puny. They almost sound like someone has taken an empty plastic margerine container, put the lid on, and is tapping on those with their hands or fingers. Now, I'm fairly new to mixing on the computer, so I'm quite prepared to admit that I have a lot to learn about tuning my monitors correctly, and getting to know the biases of the equipment I have. At the moment I'm using a Presonus Firestudio 26x26 (with software not working fully, but enough to satisfy my purposes) as a preamp, and I have a pair of KRK monitors. These are connected to my mac pro. Any advice would be gratefully received.
