Making a mix sound big
      02/02/13 01:44 AM
Okay, whilst recording for my band, or for anyone, I always run into the problem of the instruments not sounding very big. For example, the drums sound like they're very thin and small and only in the centre in the mix, when they're spread out quite a lot. I've tried using a stereo enhancer on them but it's not really working, the same applies to each other instrument. All of the recording are of high quality but I just can't understand why it's not really working!
Could it be the quality of the compressor? I'm just using cubase 5's standard one, if so, what's a decent one you'd recommend me downloading? Or could it be another plug in? Please help!
