Hi, I'm Dave Darlington. Welcome to Mixing Techniques with Waves Plugins. In this course, I will share with you my go to techniques for tone shaping with Renaissance EQ, Q series and several of the awesome hardware EQ emulations. Then I'll cover some of my approaches to compression and dynamics processing using the CLA series emulations of the classic LA-2A, LA-3A, the 1176, and others. And some advanced techniques like multiband and sidechain compression.
Next I'll show you how to create sonic ambiance and a sense of space with a few of Waves' killer reverb plugins. We'll also look at some time-based effects, including HDelay and Super Tap. And some really fun tools for creating modulation effects and movement in your tracks using mondo mod, meta flanger, and meta filter. Then there's my desert island survival kit. Plugins I use every day for sculpting character into a variety of tracks, and fine-tuning the stereo imaging. Finally, we'll finish up with some mastering techniques, to help you bring your mixes up to world-class, competitive standards.
So, let's dive in to some of my favorite mixing techniques using Waves plugins.
