    The Rough Mix & Plug-In Overview

    Before diving into the mix, we go thru the rough mix that was already created without any processing and what we?re working from. We continue on to a complete and thorough overview of everything this plug-in does and can do.

    Now we move on to our ?Snare" tracks as we continue to work with the drums as a group, or bucket, getting the right gate, compression and EQ for each.

  • Drums - Rooms & Crush Buss 6:29

    Drums - Rooms & Crush Buss

    Finally, we wrap up the drum section by working on and compressing the multiple drum rooms along with the Crush Buss, which is a parallel blend of all the original drum tracks compressed as much as possible. Or crushed.

  • Bass - Bass DI, Amp, & Fuzz 10:10

    Bass - Bass DI, Amp, & Fuzz

    In this video, we get busy on the Bass tracks, including the direct Bass DI, the amped up Bass Amp track and the Bass Fuzz track that adds just that tiny bit of grit. All of these tracks get their own dedicated bucket making it easier and more useful to work with.

  • Guitars Pt. 1 10:04

    Guitars Pt. 1

    Now we move on to our Guitar tracks, including the ?Main Gut?, which runs thru the entire song and the extra guitars, slide and solo things that appear in just certain sections.

  • Guitars Pt. 2 9:09

    Guitars Pt. 2

    In Part II of the Guitars, we start to address a separate bucket dedicated to the Power Guitars (all 6 of them) that beef up the second half of the song.

  • Vocals 8:09


    In this video, we dig in and get the Vocals going. From the main Lead Vocal to all of the basic harmony vocals that all share the same bucket and similar treatment copied from module to module.

  • Gospel Vocals 10:52

    Gospel Vocals

    We now move on to the Background Vocals or the Gospel Vocals which are a group of 3 part harmonies that go throughout the whole song. While they can be treated and copied and pasted to get started, each one gets their very own personal treatment. And finally we have the final or ?static? mix that comprises of a complete blend of every track we created in this series. While it doesn?t create automation moves, we can very easily hear how the tracks work together and how quickly you can jump from section to section and tweaking the Waves CLA MixHub.
