Between 29th July and 28th October 2021 (4pm GMT), all Plug-in Collective members can grab a free PUNCH module from Mastering the Mix, as well as the hands-on course Balancing the Channels with Tom Frampton, from Ultimate Producer.PUNCH
is a musical and sophisticated transient enhancer that puts you in the driving seat, and is part of ANIMATE, software designed to be your secret weapon in a wide range of mixing and mastering scenarios.
Beef up your snare and accentuate the transients of your audio with mid/side precision; ensure your kick pokes through the mix in a musical way; get synths and bass to bite through; and use character and grit bus processing to quickly liven up a mix on the fly. PUNCH is a powerful tool in your arsenal and will let you take control of your mix and dial in the punch only where you want it. Balancing channels with Tom Frampton
offers a smart, fast and fun way to improve your ability to balance a mix. In this course you'll be looking at 12 songs, covering a range of four genres: Pop, Rock, Hip Hop and House. The starting balance is randomly set each time you load a challenge and it's your task to adjust the faders to get a well-balanced mix. You'll get hands on experience and learn to think like a pro.
