Today we covered Trash and Devil Loc Delux after a short overview of the Plug-ins we did a group mixing exercise. Working on one of my classmates tracks, we began adding plugins to the drums, percussion and synth leads. The lesson today was that you can get great results just using one or two plugins yet the thing that really got the mix going was loading up (5 plug-ins )on one small synth part. This made the whole track pop!
We did this by experimenting with a number of plugins and reverb types on that part. The experience of and ll of us working together on the mix is a great way to really learn and about work flow.
Next class is more plugins and then onto mastering!
