    What does this knob do? Holy fuck, this sounds amazing now!!
    ~ me on width/stereo separation, before proceeding to turn every knob to full separation

    Ok let's put a limiter. So how does this work? Let me see. Oh wait, here it says there's a few dB of reduction, there should be no reduction or the track gets distorted.
    ~ everytime putting a limiter I always listened to the full track and was looking at the meter on the limiter: for some reasons I thought there had to be *no* reduction at all

    I think I want to automate the volume here. Let's automate the mixer fader.
    ~ in FL Studio this is just a mess because it initializes the control and especially when you're a noob (like I still am tbh) you get confused and don't know what's going on, you're like "why is the fader moving by itself help"

    Mmmh, X used Y plugin in this song. This means that sound can only be done with Y, let's see if it's on Az
    ~ lol, hopefully I got out of this pretty quickly

    share some if you have any (unless you were born perfect ;)

    Sitting on a Cornflake
    I remember that I used to cry a lot and I'm ashamed to say I shat myself frequently.........stangely I didn't like solid food at all, only milk, and frustratingly I was unable to get about much. Also my ability at communication and understanding was very poor.

    Thankfully some of that is sorted now.

    Yeah, one instance of Ozone per track, and an instance on the drum bus and 2 bus. There, it's mixed now...:rofl:
