Hi Elliot, thanks for the question.
Wondered if you had any tips for making a minimal mix sound ‘full’ whilst still keeping a minimal vibe, very easy to slip into the habit of adding too much and killing the feel of it, but also obviously difficult to fill out a mix with very little going on
It’s always tough making a minimal mix sound full, something I struggle with myself. I think the main thing is really picking quality sounds to start with, and good mixing, which perhaps is sometimes down to experience or preference. And also it’s important that the sounds that you do use are very vibrant and defined, which is something you can do with EQing, and well used reverb. Think of it as a painting. If you’re not using many colours, you really need the ones you do use to jump off the canvas.
