HOW TO: Add depth without 'drowning in reverb' and draw a quick picture to work out the space needed for vocals and synths
These are the little things that help create a little bit more depth and little bit more harmonic richness to your sound... It's this little game of inches that, a lot of times, accumulates to a really great sounding mix.
And if that wasn't enough for you, Justin of Modern Mixing (http://modernmixing.com) shows you how to make synth pads wide, haunting and with enough space for the lead vocal.
Says Justin about the video:
'The original sound gave me a haunting, mysterious vibe, I wanted to accentuate it...I wanted to create something that takes up a wider spectrum, but wraps around the vocal, whilst carving out space for the vocal too.'
This video gets extra props for showing just how much actually drawing how you want you track to sound can help. With the simplest of paint applications and a couple of colours, Justin literally illustrates just what type of sound and effect he is after.
