Is there a tread somewhere that walks people through how to shape their sound? If so, it might be a good idea to stick that to the top of this forum. It seems like I've been seeing a lot of 'I roll off all my highs and my bass sounds muddy' or 'I cut all mids and now I'm lost in the mix' threads lately. I know when I was first starting out it would have been great to have someone sit down and explain the different ways to shape a sound. It also seems that a lot of newbies don't get that what sounds good on your own doesn't always sound good in the mix.
