I was wondering how you manage your producing workflow with your mixing workflow ? Do you mix all the way during your production process, or do you do only a few % of mixing, for the sound design ?
I just finished the mixing courses, until now I didn’t know what I was doing in terms of mixing into my productions. Now I am again in the producing process, I see it’s not evident to produce and mix at the same time, here are the reasons :
The plugins for the mixing part (which contributes a lot to the sound design of the production) are too heavy, so I have to keep my channel strip with essential plugins like a reductive EQ Pro-Q2, a multi-band saturation Trash2 and maybe a ATR 102 Tape machine. Only this is already heavy…
If it takes too much time to mix it can lose my creativity for the production process
Mainly it’s all about the weight of the plugins on the CPU, even I have a DSP Octo, the fact to add some UAD plugins don’t change anything for my CPU… I have to look deeper into that.
