René Aquarius’ album Blight is a drum record, but not like anything you ever heard before.
Rene used his drums to get a multitude of sound and moods without actually making the drums sound as your regular drums for the most part. He composed, arranged and mixed the album by himself. To get the sounds he wanted he used for example editing, eq and pitch shifting. And most important, his taste and his ears.
The final tweaks were done by him and me in the White Noise Studio.


It really were just tweaks. René exported all tracks seperately as he had mixed them. A lot of things remained unchanged. Most of the things we did were done in the low end. During mastering we sometimes felt the bass was too much and resulted in clipping. So we then went back into the mix and used eq or automation to change the bass to something which translated better.
In mastering we focused on getting a good volume without squashing or distorting anything.
The overall sound was shifted more to the higher part of the frequency spectrum than the low end.
There was plenty of that.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][socialWarfare][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][templatera id=”5871″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
