On Wednesday, we continued with group mixing, this time in Ableton. It went really well, once again by using just a handful of plugins ( Alloy2, Decapitator) we were able to enhance the drums, leads, and vocals to really bring out the elements of the track.
Its become really clear, that it's important to finish your production completely prior to working on the final mix. The technique of bouncing all your elements to separate WAV files and then mixing them is a useful way to separate your production work from your final mix. Seeing this in action over the last two classes really underscores the usefulness of this approach.
Next week, we are moving on to some new plugins. Looking forward to it.
