With todays video we start a new chapter of the FREE masterclass Realistic Orchestral Mockups: Mixing! I will discuss my philosophy on the concept of mixing, exporting midi and importing audio and three plugins that I almost always use on my master bus: Voxengo Span, iZotope Insight and iZotope Ozone Imager. So let’s start mixing orchestral music!

Mixing Orchestral Music: use less achieve more!
This is the starting video of the mixing chapter. One thing I think is important to address. To make sure that you don’t make the same mistakes as I did. Cause when I started mixing orchestral music I was focused to hear a clear result on each single track. That resulted in enormous EQ cuts and boosts per track. Enormous reverb settings on each single track. Eventually I ended up with a messy and really bad mix result.
So I’ve learned over the years that less is more. Only grab to a plugin when you think it is really necessary. If you have any doubts, don’t use a plugin! If you have a good composition and you made the right orchestration choices, your track should mix it self by 90%!
