    ...to make everything sound like it is in the same room, and I like the effect somewhat subtle...

Honestly it's so dumb I never even considered it like that, that you're trying to impart the same quality to effect that same-room feel.

I recorded five songs as two separate demos in the early 90s (poor approximations of Depeche/NIN/darkwave) and basically showed up to the studio each time with my MIDI gear and piped it through their stuff, an engineer made it sound as good as it could. I focused quite a bit on the (not very good) songs and the rest of it was something I couldn't consider... no access to a studio, etc. Even MoTU or whatever was popular back then was prohibitively expensive.

So I'm glad I got Ableton a couple of years ago when I could afford it, but it's been a loop/idea tool for me to this point. Trying to learn how to actual produce something with it and make it sound decent has been a mystery solved in "what does this button do" bites.

One of the local music instructors teaches mixing and so forth, might hit him up for a month or so when I get some basics under my feet. This really helps.

“Don’t overplay. Don’t overplay. Less is more. It will always be: less is more. Nobody is ever going to remember all those fancy solos - even the guys that play them, most of them won’t remember - so play some licks that people can walk away humming, that people can identify with." --Steve Cropper
