Mixing and Processing Plugins

Knowing how to mix is a vital skill to have. Not only does it allow you to fully take control over your sound, but it can save you time, money and or help you make money. That is if you’re willing to put in the time to learn.

Even if you aren’t going to handle the final mix and master, being able to get close to the sound you’re after will make the mixing engineer’s job a lot easier, and they will thank you for it.

Also, we’re not in the days where mixes have to be done via hardware anymore, a lot can be done in the box, and we have plenty of great sounding plugins to help you achieve your sound.

Tone Empire: Opto Red Compressor

I’m an Opto Styled Compressor fanatic, especially if it’s emulating analog. What I love about the Opto Red is its ridiculously slow release. It’s a little too long, which annoys some, but also makes it unique and extremely ideal for gluing tracks together as it’s consistently hugging (gently) the audio signal!

Tone Empire OptoRED Compressor

I like using OptoRed on drums, synths, basslines, and, of course, on buses or folder tracks that contain anything that needs to sound cohesive.

I don’t know of another compressor like this.

A Few OptoRed Features

Super Long Release: Great for smooth sounding compression

Low Cut Filter: Ideal for removing unwanted frequencies during tracking sessions

Automatic Gain: ←- I wish more plugin manufacturers would employ this setting

Wet/Dry Mix: Adjust your mix/level between the processed and unprocessed signal(s).

Tape Mello-Fi

Tape MELLO-FI is a tape emulation/saturation plugin inspired by Arturia’s Mellotron V. an emulation of the classic Mellotron. Tape plugins are ideal for introducing warmth, gel, glue, and all overall roundness to your music.

Free Tape Plugin Arturia-Tape-Mellow-fi

There’s also a nice LO-FI like character to the plugin, making it ideal for LO-Fi music, hence the name.

With its versatile features and ability to add gooey lo-fi goodness to any track, Tape MELLO-FI is a valuable addition to any music creator’s toolkit.

Two main sections you need to focus on when using Tape MELLO-FI, Tape and Preamp

Preamp: This action controls the characteristics of vintage tape, which allows you to push your audio signals through variances of warmth by controlling the Noise, Tone, and Drive of the preamp section.

Tape: This section deals with effects respective to the tape itself. Here you control; wow/flutter, mechanics, wear, and everyday artifacts that you would run into with tape, which can be used to add more flavor and authenticity to the sound.

Overall, this is great Tape Emulation to add to your sound palette.

You have control over the basic ADSR controls, EQ, Compression, Delay and Reverb, and sounding mapping. Drum Fury 1 is the main feature, and version 2 builds onto 1. That said, you can purchase them separately, but I’d go for both!

Some of the not so obvious features

Random Velocity: Helps your playing sound more humanized and realistic.

Energizer: Combination of saturation, compression, and distortion. This helps add aggression as well as edge to the sounds.

Polisher: This is a macro that controls width, transient shaping, and eq. This is much more subtle than the energizer macro.

Various Mic Positions: For added flexibility with programming and drum mixing

Production Tools: Samplers, Experimental Plugins, etc

Good production tools are essential to have for a music producer to work quickly and efficiently. Now depending on which DAW you have, you may have everything you need in this department, but if not, then you may want to pay attention to a few of these tools. They do make a huge difference, especially when it comes to workflow.

Chop Monster: Here’s An Interesting Way To Approach Sampling

If you’re a sample based music producer, you’ll want to check out ChopMonster. This plugin makes it easy to take a sample and chop it up into 4, 8, and 16 slice segments.

8 Slices ChopMonster

From here, you can replay the chops in any order or have ChopMonster auto chop/reorder the samples for you and drag the segments into your DAW.

One thing I like doing is having ChopMonster generate a few different chop variations and then drag the segments into the DAW, using each as different sections of the song/production.

This Plugin Is Simple But Very Effective

 

LoopMix: AudioModern’s Creative Loop Mixer

LoopMix is another great plugin that allows you to mix and mangle sample packs (loops/samples), allowing you to experiment and create new and innovative music.

Audiomodern Loopmix

This goes far beyond simple slicing/chopping. With LoopMix, you have 6 different sequencing windows that allow you to control; the main sequence, reverse, density, level, re-arrange, and pitch across 6 separate channels.

Those are simple parameters, but the way AudioModern implements them is amazing.

Some Standout Features In Additional Those Listed Above

Drag/Drop: This works for importing and exporting loops from LoopMix

GUI: Lots of options, but easily managed and organized

Stock Samples: Comes with stock of 2000+ samples covering multiple genres to get you started

Load Samples: Load your own samples if you don’t want to work with the stock

I’m a huge fan of stock sounds, especially when you’re learning/getting familiar with a plugin, but the real power is manipulating your own. That’s where you’ll push LoopMix to its limits!

CHORDJAM by Audiomodern

Efx Fragments by Arturia: Not Your Average Grain Sampler

Grain sampling is one of those things that you either love or hate. It’s unique and can inspire some creative ideas, but depending on how the company employs technology can make the plugin a pain in the butt.

Granular Processing Synthesis efx Fragments Audio Plugin Deals

That’s not the case with Efx Fragments. Arturia has outdone itself with this one. They took the idea of grain sampling and turned it into a processing fx unit.
