so I think I'm becoming a Kush fanboy

Post by blungo2 » Wed Nov 19, 2014 5:58 pm

For a while now I've realized that my mixes tend to come out qute dark. A less polite person might say muffled. Recently aquired the Kush Clariphonic plug, I'm loving the ability to brighten up my mixes or make the mids pop with seemingly no added harshness or tinniness. Gonna start saving for a hardware version. I'm pretty imressed by the tonal control it gives me over tracks and mixes, with seemingly no downsides.

So now i'm trialing the Kush Pusher which is a distortion/limiter combo, but unlike anything I've used before. Hard to describe, it's distortion that somewhat functions as
a transient designer too, i'm sold. Payday i'm buying it.

I sound like a schill now. Oh well. :oops:

Maybe instead of throwing money at the problem, you can identify and correct it by changing your recording and mixing methods?

Howling at the neighbors. Hoping they have more mic cables.

Don't miss out on the UBK plugin. That can do some ridiculous compression tricks. It can be subtle, too, but plenty of compressors can do subtle. I really like UBK when I want to smash something into oblivion.

I wish i had paid more attention to it when I demo'd it.
Maybe i'll write him and see if i could demo it again.

Yeah, you should if you can, and watch his videos on how to use it. It's not immediately obvious. The videos helped me out.

Yes, the vid on the pusher was very helpful.
