    I'm thinking about recording simple videos for my freestyles/remixes/one verse tracks etc. I want to make these look cool, not only black and white or something.

    Any tips how to put effects, like glitch, or vhs etc?

    Like something starting from 0:23 in here

    @CreativeSXN I've been wanting to get back into f---ing around with music/audio editing for fun. Does anyone have any recs for an affordable midi keyboard that doesn't s--- complete s---? I don't need anything fancy just something reliable I can f--- around with and there's so many options it's hard to know where to start. Thanks!

    @CreativeSXN do you guys have any tips for mixing vocals (specifically an already recorded speech) into an already mastered instrumental? If that makes sense...it sounds decent just placed over the instrumental but I know it could be better lol

    Dynamic Eq is your best tool. You're going to want to put one on your beat and "carve" out space for your vocal. But a dynamic Eq is is gonna help more because you need to side chain it to your vocal. So when your vocal is playing the most prominent frequencies in the vocal are dipping out of your beat.

    Or if you want to just cut some space in the beat with a normal eq, you can do that as well. But side chaining is your best friend. Theres also a plug in called trackspacer from wavesfactory made for this. If you need help I can do it also. But if you're going to eq it manually definitely side chain it.

    Here's an example of side chaining with a dynamic eq

    Triple post....but also try to not just duck in the 800 to 2.5khz range just bc. It's true that's where "presence" is in a vocal but you just gotta know what in the beat is colliding with the vocal. Alot of times when you want a warmer vocal, it's the lower frequency range from the beat colliding with the warmth. The 100- 350 range is where your warmth it. Your 400- 600 is body.
