Lately I’ve been adopting a more minimalistic approach to plugin usage in my mixes. Part of it is I want to be very intentional about every single thing I do to a mix so that nothing is arbitrary. I also believe there’s something to what Michael Fitzpatrick is saying about tweaking less and less with EQ and effects to achieve a more organic and natural sound. Today I want to demonstrate one example of what I call the minimal plugins mindset. Enjoy!
