Sometimes you have the luck to discover a hidden gem. This year around Black Friday I spotted Precedence. An amazing plugin from 2CAudio. This one I’ll be using from now on to create depth and width in my orchestral mixes.

Positioning instruments to get depth and width: Precedence 2CAudio
I already did a couple of posts about panning on the blog. I strongly advise you to read these posts and watch the related videos first before continuing. These are the posts I’m talking about:
Now you’re familiar with the concept of panning, you can utilise the hidden gem Precedence from 2CAudio even more! You can visually position the instruments on stage. This plugin automatically adds pre-delay to the sound based on algorithms.
You have to play around with it a bit. You need to learn how to use this plugin to get the results you want. After spending some hours I had a couple of presets that worked out quite well for me. I use the plugin in a gentle way, cause I want to achieve a realistic orchestral sound.
Don’t forget to put a reverb plugin in your mixing chain after the use of Precedence. The combination of these two can give you mind-blowing results!
