As an EDM producer trying to get better at mixing... I have a question about plugins and when to use them. As I am crafting an arrange should I be looking to compress my kick... buss it out and paralell process it while working through the creative process and arrangement? Ditto for other tracks as I build up the arrange?
I've learned a lot of channel and paralell processing techniques but I'm confused when to apply them. I know there is no rules but should I just put my sounds into an arrange "unprocessed". Finish the arrange and then look to start all the "fun"?I enjoy throwing a delay on a synth while I'm creating... but should I leave the synth clean and do that during the mixdown so I complete the arrange quicker?
I have a 100 other questions I could ask here but I hope my simple examples kind of get to the heart of the matter.
