Re: OT: Space

What does the music sound like, when you recorded it? 
Use an analyzer to find out which frequencies (likely between 150Hz and 
600 Hz) are overdosing in your recording and try taking them out mildly 
already during recording using analog gear, such as an MXR 108 EQ or so. 
Avoid strong compression. 
Make sure to record in 24bit / 88.2 and using lower recording levels 
Avoid clipping your hopefully decent converters (RME, Apogee and alike). 
Have a sound example?
