As part of their Master the Mix month, our friends at iZotope are releasing a set of 4 tutorials. In this first episode, they explore how to correct sibilance issues in the mixing stage with Neutron's de-esser tool.
Ever think you’re ready to start mastering your project only to discover that lingering issues in the mix like resonant frequencies, harshness, or low-end frequencies make it impossible to be creative? We know the feeling.
Instead of troubleshooting and problem solving during the mastering stage, you want to focus on making creative choices. That means you should correct issues like sibilance, muddiness, and conflicting mid-range frequencies when you’re mixing—not mastering.
