It’s easy to become a little bit snobbish when looking at the multiplicity of plugins available today and confuse realistic recreations of, (say), a classic compressor with “the way it should be done”. To borrow a phrase from one of my favourite bad guys, “there are no rules”, certainly in how you approach making music. In this video, I look at one of the simplest plugins around, (for the user), yet one capable of the most powerful end results if used with a little taste – EZMix2 from Toontrack. A positive case of the ends justifying the means, for once? You decide.
