Waves has captured EDM duo Infected Mushroom’s lightning in a plug-in Pusher, and in this video tutorial series, EDM producer Timothy Allan shows you how to use it to add secret sauce to your own productions!

After laying out what you can expect from this series, Timothy starts by showing you how to set the Input control for maximum pushing.

Then Timothy teaches you the differences between the clip and limit options of the Push knob, so you can get your mix loud and punchy.

Next, Timothy dives into the Magic knob, explaining what it’s doing under the surface. From there, it’s on to the High knob and how it affects your mix.

The Body knob is then explored and explained, including which frequencies it acts upon, as well as how to use the Low knob to enhance the bottom end of your mix.

Finally, Timothy reveals the mid/side processing technique used by the Stereo Image knob.

If you want to get the download on this amazing new sonic enhancement plug-in from Waves and Infected Mushroom, look no further… Watch “Infected Mushroom Pusher In-Action” today!

Useless video...

What an absolutely useless video. This one should be free, always. Glad I watched this one during a free, 7-day pass. Overall, this video was as much of a marketing ploy as the plugin itself! Timothy Allan fumbles his way through the plugin, twisting knobs and not really understanding what happens. Instead of thoroughly explaining what each knob does, he doesn't do it. Why? Because it's all a big mystery anyway, i.e. "magic!" Maybe it's an EQ? Some sort of "dynamics" going on in there? How about this knob? Raises/lowers volume? He suspects things, but cannot confirm them, even his "lab" metering. There really was no point to this video series.

Response from Customer Service:

Hi and thank you for your review.
It is true that this tutorial could certainly use a follow up with more advanced insight into all it's capabilities. It was meant as a basics how to when the plug-in first came out and most of the response has been good. It will certainly get people up and running. I have added a request for a more in-depth tutorial covering the software a little deeper.
I believe if you take a second look, you will understand your plug-in better and start adding it into your projects in no time.

Good content

Good content, to the point. Nice voice to listen to. 30 mins of content is good, but I would probably like to hear a few more different applications of the plugin demonstrated to help give me ideas. Annoying point: The next video in the series didn't autoplay so I had to wash KFC off my hands to go to the next video =(

Excellent first 1/2 of a needs-to-be-longer series

The series as is gives a very good introduction to the IM Pusher module, and breaks down and explains its functions clearly. As others have noted, special mention to the Magic explanation and the engineering detail view. However...the usefulness of the module is in its application. I wanted to see/hear examples of its use on a range of source material, both tracks and mixes. That brings together the distinct functions beyond their simple separate functions into a whole approach, and, is the only way I can determine whether or not the module would potentially be useful to me in my actual work.

Incomplete

Even though the author did a fantastic job explaining individual controls, he didn't demonstrate or use the plugin as intended by infected mushroom and waves audio. Showing how individual parts of the plugin work without using them entirely in a real mix totally defeats the purpose of a video lesson

watch it !!

Altough it' s a simple ( but very effective ) tool _ watch the tutorial, because lots of information about the background of the plug in ( wich you have to consider ) and maybe a few things revealed you didn't recognize without ;)

Good introduction

Each knobs is analyzed and described, but I would have like a more deeper look where we can know more than watching a video presenting what is written in the manual. However, the analysis on the Magic button worth it. I learn good things, but thought I could learn more.

Is a good review overall

It has great exaplems, but only based in one track, adding more genres to the tutorial wouldn't be that had and will give the viewer a better view of the examples, there is one little mistake with the magic knob example and it's that in the specturm analysis, the low was one (didn't happen on the other examples)

Good basic QUICK overview 3.5 stars actually......

Used this to help determine if I wanted to purchase the plugin while on sale. For me, not so much. The review was a little quick for my taste, a slight spoonful of cynical humor, and a very 1-2-3 there ya go style..... With that said, he was honest, complete with analyzer, explanations of possible background signal chain, etc. I must be thankful because he helped me to realize that it wasn't for my style. So Thanks guy! :) Do appreciate the upbeat humor though, a nice touch to keep from being boring......

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

As a very young kid my parents signed me up for piano lessons. My mom said if I quit that I would regret it later on in life, but I thought piano lessons were boring! Electronic music was a natural progression for me from those early days, it let me combine my love of technology and all things nerdy with a love of loud and strange noises.

2. What training have you had?

I've had years and years of training from a good friend of mine named "The Internet", and before him my other good pal "Trial and Error". 

3. When did you get into recording?

The wonder of synthesis and certain electronic music is that you never really have to record anything if you don't want to! Although I do remember way back in the day recording found sounds on an old garage sale cassette recorder I bought, and using those samples in old school Trackers on the Apple II.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with, and for, a whole bunch of fantastic people so far. Some of the more popular ones include Empire of the Sun, Dirty South, Ash, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Kennedy, Hong Kong Blondes, Loverush UK, Molly Bancroft, Made by Monkeys, Tiff Lacey, Marcie, Offer Nissim and Kirsty Hawkshaw. Madonna chose a track I made for a compilation she released, although she never called or took me for lunch! That really doesn't count as 'working with' does it!?

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I'm good at training people because I remember what it was like to be the newbie, and I try and go over things that I would have found interesting and cool, back when I was starting out. I take the time to learn the techniques inside and out, and then break that down quickly for people.
