Interesting article from Electronic Musician magazine:

TECHNIQUES FOR CREATING A BIGGER SOUND

February 26, 2014

I know about panning to place sounds in a stereo field, but I’d like my mixes to have more depth and a bigger soundstage. I keep reading that analog consoles can provide a more open soundstage, and wonder if my problem is from doing in-the-box mixes. Will adding an analog console really make that much difference? If so, can you recommend a model?

Matt Soderquist Philadelphia, PA via email

Applying this string of processors in Ableton Live 9 to a percussive shaker track places it more in the soundstage background.
Many techniques can help you create a bigger soundstage, whether you are working in the box or mixing on analog console. Begin by visualizing the space you want to create. If you want a “live” sound, then the drums will probably be further back, and you’ll want to add some room ambience to them. If the drums were recorded without room mics, short delays or a reverb set to simulate a small space can help.

Trimming high frequencies ever so slightly will also place sounds more in the “back” of the mix. For example, if the mix includes background singers and a lead singer, make the lead singer a little brighter; in addition, using less reverb on a lead vocal brings it more “up front” in relation to other sounds. As another example, trimming a tiny bit of highs from rhythmguitar parts and adding some subtle ambience will place them “behind” the lead guitar part. Centered, dry parts will be the closest to the listener.

Try a combination of panning, EQ, and ambience, and you should be able to create a more convincing soundstage no matter how you’re mixing!

Sorry to hear that Jonah! Sid you contact apple about it or visit the apple store? I heard there would be no logic 10 but I am happy sticking with 9!
Comment by Jonah Lake on June 16, 2013 at 3:50pm

I've given up the wait for logic 10.. Too bad because I really liked the old logic.. But my new Imac does not read DVDs and the logic ( express 9 ) I had on my old macbook doesn't seem to work at all with the new iMac.. So I'm back to zero with garageband:(  Starting tomorrow to learn Reaper.

IT'S OFFICIAL...
Well, I just got confirmation...a British magazine called MacFormat contacted me about running an article on my home studio, Pepperland Productions, in the April issue! The article will explain how I use my iMAC and peripherals to record, edit, mix and master CD's of my original music. They did an email interview and requested several hi-rez photos for printing with the article, which is called "Me and My Mac." I will put an update here when it's out! 

For more info on the magazine, here is a link:

Pepperland gets a facelift for Facebook!  My home studio gets a new 32" monitor so I can see what I am doing!

No don't ask at the Apple store!  They will surely set you up with speakers and they will cost a bundle and not be really designed for music recording!  Recording speakers differ greatly from regular monitor or stereo speakers in that they do not color the sound, meaning sound bassy or fancy treble, they are what is called "flat" response...that way what you record is what you hear back.  Also, regular stereophile speakers are not built to handle bass transients...loud sudden frequencies from the bass end of the business!  Using your PA amp/speakers would be a good temporary remedy to monitors, but they will most likely not be "flat"...the bigger the bass woofer in your cabinets the more bass heavy the sound will be.  BUT, in the meantime that is a great solution. 

What you would do is listen to your favorite CD on your home stereo system and then stick it into your computer hooked to the MAC and play it through your PA speakers...adjust the tone controls on your amp to get it to sound as close to the great sound you got from your stereo.  Now, when you are recording and mixing your own stuff, you will shoot for the same basic "sound" tone-wise as you got with your favorite recording...again, it's not the best solution, but it is readily accessible!  At least until your poor wife gets through the latest crisis!!! Let us help you along here as you work on your set up!

I knew you would know. I keep forgetting that you can learn about everything on You Tube.

As soon as I get my wife past this latest crisis I will check all that out. One thing: By powered speakers do you mean the kind that computers use? I have a set just sitting around. It would be nicer to hook up to my PA. Maybe I should take a trip to the Apple store and ask...

Thanks - m
