the entire mix is adjusted continuously as more and more elements
You'll begin to see how professional mixers
"see" and "hear" a mix as a whole rather than
as disparate techniques.
The techniques in this tutorial can be applied to any software
or hardware-based effects units. You'll be able to examine
the final settings for each and every plugin in the mix and
finally understand how those settings are attained. - Not as
one-off uses of presets, but as continual adjustments to the
