Our friends at Mastering The Mix, creators of the clever LEVELS plug-in, have today released a new mix and mastering reference plug-in called REFERENCE.
What Is REFERENCE?
Many music producers and mixers use reference tracks in their workflows as guides to help them achieve mixes that are similar in sonic character to music they either aspire to or want to match. Producers also reference their mixes as a means to compare and critique their work against other music while in production.
REFERENCE by Mastering The Mix is a new mix referencing plug-in packed with a number of powerful features not seen before in other referencing software that will enable users who work with reference tracks to reference music in more detail and with greater control than ever before.
Watch both the videos that explain how REFERENCE features can be used in both mixing and mastering applications.
