Core Production Workflow

Use the Core Production Workflow to achieve professional quality and excellent translation.  Hear the audio core with clarity, and make better decisions, faster.

What is the Core?

The core is the portion of audio most sensitive to the human ear. 

Improving the Core

In the past, audio engineers used small speakers and NS10s to hear the core, although they were not designed for it.

Today, Reveal allows you to hear the core in the greatest detail using the full quality of your studio monitors.  Then, Low Leveler helps balance bass instruments within the core during mixing.  

Let's explore each step of Core Production.

Step #1:  Discover The Core

 

 

Place Reveal on your master bus so that all audio is routed through it.  Use Reveal's Critical Listening feature to listen to the audio core.

Step #2:  Make Adjustments While Listening to the Core
 


Select Sounds

Select sounds on synthesizers and samplers while listening to the core to achieve superior quality and avoid problems down the road.  

Select & Place Mics

Craft outstanding quality and improved tonalities by selecting and placing mics while evaluating the audio core with Reveal's Critical Listening feature.

Set Compressors

Hear how your compressor is working in higher detail and find unsurpassed attack, release and threshold settings by listening to the audio core.

Set Equalizers

Listening to the audio core allows you to find the most perfect EQ settings and with higher precision than ever.

Balance and Set Levels

It is extremely easy to hear loudness balance problems in a mix when listening to the core.  For example, if a vocal is too low, or a guitar is too loud, it will be extremely easy to hear and adjustments will be more precise than ever.

Perform De-Essing

Set up your de-esser with new precision by listening through Reveal's Harshness Listening while finding settings.

Address Harshness

While listening to the core, adjust the harshness of sources with your preferred EQ or processor.  You might try a wide shaped bell EQ around the 3kHz range.  Vocals too harsh?  Cymbals sound brash?  You will be able to adjust them with more precision than ever.  To add additional warmth, switch from Critical Listening to Harshness Listening in Reveal while adjusting harshness.

Set the Soundstage

Set reverbs, delay and panning while listening to the audio core and achieve a greater sense of depth.

Preview Translation

The audio core reveals translation issues before they are heard outside of the studio.

Mastering Decisions

For mastering, adjustments can be done better and faster by listening to the core, especially matching levels between songs and setting tonality.

Step #3:  Add Low Leveler To Bass Instruments

Low Leveler should be placed on each individual bass instrument including bass lines, bass drums and low toms.

Note:  If you are using multiple tracks to create a single bassline or bassdrum, we recommend to route the tracks into a single bus and place Low Leveler on that bus.

Step #4:  Set Upper Bass in the Core

 

 

While listening through Critical Listening in Reveal, adjust the upper bass of Low Leveler on each bass source.  Your bass will now translate to the car, headphones and other listening systems in an accurate way.

Step #5:  Set Low Bass Outside the Core

 

 

Turn off Critical Listening, and any other feature in Reveal, and adjust the low bass of Low Leveler on each bass source.  With this, you are setting the low bass frequencies of the bass instruments.
