Music Production Tips, News, and more!
Stereo is a huge part of every modern song/mixdown. We all use it and listen to it every day.
However, not many people know that using the wrong kind of stereo widening techniques can severely damage your song.
Techniques such as HAAS, Mid Side, Frequency Shifter, and even chorus (if used incorrectly) can cause huge problems in your mixdown. There are even some expensive 3rd party plugins that cause problems right out of the box.
The problem is that these stereo widening techniques don't fold back down to mono properly. This can make your song sound soft, mushy, distant, lose punch and lose bass.
This could be happening right now and if so, it's not your fault. You've just been taught the wrong techniques.
That's why I made this free video lesson, and why I made the plugin i demonstrate in the video.
I've just uploaded a collection of 14 of my favorite and most useful custom Ableton Live Macro plugins that make my life so much easier! They make common tasks faster, and some previously impossible tasks, now possible! There are video demos in there too. Check them out!
Make buildups in 5 seconds! This Ableton macro plugin will do all your build up automation with one simple knob.
WHAT IS IT?
This is a plugin to simplify buildups in music production. It has one knob. You turn it, and it does many things at once. Mainly, it washes things out. It gradually applies a high pass filter, reverb, grain delay, filter delay, compression, and a few other things. On top of this, when you have the knob on zero, it bypasses all these effects to keep your signal path clean and CPU light. As soon as you start to turn it, it engages the plugins. This thing is an Ableton macro plugin, made from standard built-in, Ableton Live plugins. It only works in Ableton Live. Anyone could have made this. I am not a coder. It's just a very handy FX preset, but......very handy.
WHY DID I MAKE THIS?
I found I was often doing these same things over and over again each time I was programming a build up. So to save time, I built a macro...
