Our FREE plug-ins section on Pro Tools Expert is hugely popular, so my friends at Groove 3 asked me to create a video series showing how to create an entire mix using just FREE plug-ins. In their words…
Mixing music with plug-ins has become the norm these days, but is it possible to create a great sounding mix with plug-ins that offered for free? Well, DAW expert Russ Hughes says “YES” and shows you some great plug-ins that are available for free and how to use them on a mix. Russ even includes the audio file stems from the tutorials so you can practice mixing along!
Russ starts of with an introduction video explaining the series and what it will accomplish, as well as playing the song you’ll be mixing together. Next, he tackles the drums and percussion, showing you how to get super lows on the kicks and a nice top end using a collection of free EQ plug-ins. Bass guitar and piano are then looked at, and Russ explains how to get them to sit in the mix just right.
Acoustic guitar and synths are focused on and Russ demonstrates how to use a free delay plug-in to enhance the parts. Electric guitars and vocals are next up and Russ introduces amp simulations and reverbs to do the job. Lastly, Russ concentrates on the final mix, revealing how to “glue” the whole thing together.
If you’re mixing on a budget, or just want some more insight on mixing in general, this series is a must see! Join Russ and watch how to get the best bang without spending any money on plug-ins… Watch “Mixing with FREE Plug-Ins” today.
