This video that might have slipped under the radar for most producers.
It’s a slightly different take on achieving loudness and Dave highlights a number of processes that help him achieve really good mix results. The use of the Pumper and RVox plugins are not necessarily part of the overall mixing strategy. Those that are as follows:
- Using a De-esser to remove reduce some high frequencies to allow for a bit more limiting to take place. You can achieve similar results with any de-esser and there are a lot of good ones around including FabFilter Pro-DS and DMG Audio Essence.
- MV2 to manage low and high level compression.
- L3 – Ultramaximizer
Anyway, watch the video and get some insight into managing your top end to improve headroom.
