Open Mic: How Do You Make Your Tracks More Interesting?


When I'm cooking, I love adding spice and other unusual ingredients to a meal to make it a whole lot less boring? Do you do the same with your tracks? How?

Each week we open our mic to readers and lurkers alike to come out of the woodwork and tell us your thoughts and opinion, your experiences and mistakes, what you love and what you hate. We want to hear from you, and here’s your chance.

Imagine you've finished most of the tracking and arranging on your latest project. All the big pieces are in place, and it sounds OK. But you have a vague feeling there's something missing. You want to inject more life into the track.

What first comes to mind? What tricks or techniques would you try? Have you ever been in that situation? What was your solution? What are your favorite audio spices?
