In this video I wanted to show you a little example of a Hi-hat track that was panned too far L/R in the stereo field.

The problem is, if switched to mono, it sounded very different than it was supposed to be in the first place.

In my opinion I don't want this to happen.

I want my tracks to be heard in the outside world like they were supposed to be heard.

Like they have been produced in my studio or in this case, the client's studio.

Now, some people don’t even care about their tracks to be mono compatible.

In the end it’s up to everyone's personal taste.

The fact is, even though Club PA’s can be stereo, but also can be set up in mono, we never truly know our listeners playback system...

(Bluetooth speakers, PA System and so on.)

We never really know if the playback system is going to be in mono or stereo.

That's why I think it still matters, if not even more in 2021 to find a nice balance between stereo and mono for our ro minimal & micro house tracks.

The benefit of a nice balance between mono/stereo is also that our mix get’s more focus and impact, punch in my opinion.

I hope this helps.

The other day someone reached out to me with the problem that he had that his ro minimal arrangement wasn’t flowing nicely.


A few days later I had a similar problem but I learned a simple formula a few weeks before, which actually works quite nicely to resolve the problem of two contrasting sections letting flow into each other nicely.


So in this first video in 2021 I wanted to share my experience about that and the formula itself with some audible examples. It’s stupid simple maybe you do it already.


But still, I think it’s a great little “formula” to keep in mind as a little helper in the back of our mind so we quickly can resolve that problem if it pops up in future productions.


I hope it helps and I hope you have a great start into 2021!

I also wanted to say thank you deeply from my heart that you spend some time on my YT channel.


All my best wishes to you and happy music making!


Cheers Silvano



All the best

The other day I was looking for new ways to create some pad-like Background textures and atmosphere sounds that are often heard in ro-minimal tracks.


I stumbled across the Stand alone Software from Audiobulb which is called “Ambient”.

It’s really simple and fun to use and creates quite fast results.


In the video I was using a synth loop from a Silat Beksi sample pack and also a random nylon guitar sample.


The guitar sample created some very interesting stuff that is useful for background Textures and so on and I wasn’t even touching any keys or anything.


So, If you want to see this "jam like video", click on the link.


Hope you like it.


Please let me know how you create your textures and atmos?

What tools do you use?
