Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

lost of good thoughts here ... keep em coming! a few more details: we didn't use the Junos built in chorus as it's super hissy... we mostly tracked through my strymon Decco pedal to add modulation and we did do that on most songs so there's already chorus happening.. I think my current issue is mayb...

Re: tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

For creating space, I’m sure you’ve tried sidechaining against other stuff, and also Trackspacer is useful for this. Assume I know nothing and tell me what kinds of things you like to sidechain (compressor i assume?) to I'm coming out of a more "real instruments" kind of production style and moving...

tricks to make stereo pads more interesting in the mix?

I am mixing an album where there's a bit more pads happening then on most projects that I work on and we tried to track them with as much expression and dynamics as possible (in terms of part/volume/filter/tone) but I am still trying to make them a little less static in the mix. They are typically m...

Re: Tons of Plugin Deals Right Now. Any Suggestions?

Re: Mixing with the band there

Been thinking about this a lot lately... I think I do my best work when the artist isn't here (and generally that's how most mixing happens now). the other day the artist was here and i was so focussed on attending to his thoughts about the song that I wasn't really listening like I would if he were...

So I bought a second and have been trying them on everything... piano, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, percussion, drum OH and rooms (and snare with the pad)... even did some pretty great sounding vocals on em. The only thing they aren...
