In this video tutorial series, mixer pro Fabio Lendrum shows you how to mix an electronic music production using UAD Plug-Ins! See it come together from scratch using a few stock DAW plug-ins and a collection of amazing UAD plug-ins to create a killer mix. The session files for the track are also included so you can follow along and make your own mix. Fabio starts by welcoming you and goes over some groundwork before you start to mix the track, followed by important preparation based tasks to get your mix ready to be mixed. Then it’s off to perhaps the most important instrument in electronic music, the kick drum, where you’ll see how to sculpt it just right for the mix. Next, drum processing is shown using a combination of a stock EQ and the UAD SSL Channel Strip, and Fabio explains the difference between the Black and Brown setting for the Low Frequency section of the SSL Channel strip ,so you know which to use and why.
Parallel compression is then set up using the UAD Rev A 1176 to add more harmonics and sustain to the sound, and then the Bass is crafted into a big bottom using the UAD Neve 88RS channel strip, Fairchild 670, Oxide Tape and a stock DAW compression plug-in for sidechain duties.
Throughout the rest of the series you’ll see and hear how to mix the other elements including synths, vocals and effects to perfection, using numerous UAD plug-ins like the API 560, EMT 140 Reverb, Copper Time Cube Delay, Tape Saturation and more.
Wrapping it up, Fabio gives you videos on mastering the mix using stock DAW plug-ins and UAD plug-ins like the SSL G Bus Comp, Pulteq EQ and Dangerous EQ, as well as how to use a limiter to get the mix up to level standards.
