Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Get in the Mix project files, part of Get In the Mix with Pro Tools.
As I mentioned in the welcome movie, this course takes advantage of Get In The Mix exercise files, which allow you to play back the tutorial video and experiment with the audio examples directly inside your Pro Tools rig. All lynda.com subscribers have access to the Get In The Mix files. Once downloaded from the course page, you will find the Exercise folder organized by chapter number as well as movie number and title. To use the Exercise files with your own Pro Tool system, simply open the corresponding session file to launch the session, and hit Play to watch the embedded video content guide you through the material.
Feel free to open the exercises in their chapter order, or skip through to topics that interest you specifically. If you don't have access to your ProTools system, you can simply watch the video in the lynda.com player. So, download those exercises, and let's Get In The Mix.
This course covers 26 techniques for improving your mixes with compressors, processors, EQ and filters, reverb, delay, and modulation. The first chapter covers compression and dynamics processing, including how to even out vocal performances and how to add punch to drum tracks. The second chapter goes into EQ and filtering techniques, such as creating complimentary EQ curves and EQ-ing FX returns. Next, the authors explore delay and modulation techniques, including using long delay on key lyrics and creating flanger and phaser effects. The last chapter explores reverb techniques including using gated reverb and supporting a track with regenerative reverb. .
