For the last few weeks I’ve been mixing Projects from WLPR readers. And if you submitted your song for consideration – thank you!
After listening to 200+ submissions, I landed on 8 songs of varying genres to mix for upcoming WLPR videos. I’m pretty pumped about them 🙂
And today I want to let you in on a secret in this week’s video. One I use on every single mix I work on, regardless of the genre.
Have you ever felt your songs were missing something?
Maybe it’s warmth…
Or one of the many other ambiguous words we use to describe a great mix?
And very often we associate the thing missing from our mixes with analog gear. You know, the big heavy (and expensive!) stuff that the pros seem to use.
Analog circuitry seems to have some indescribable thing to it that makes a mix that much better. This is why plenty of plugin developers go to great pains to emulate the sound of analog equipment.
But why spend big bucks elsewhere when Logic Pro comes with awesome emulations all its own?
It’s so easy to overlook what we have. But ever since 10.4 the Vintage EQ Collection has been my secret mix weapon. Not even for EQing. But for vibe and glue.
I’ve written about the Vintage EQ Drive section before. But I’ll tell ya – I use them on every single mix.
By placing the Vintage EQs last in the chain on each instrument group, they add that indescribable thing.
So in today’s video I’d like to do a direct comparison for you on a full mix. Let’s compare the difference that the Vintage EQ Collection can give to your mixes.
