I’m a huge fan of top down mixing – where you put plugins on your mix buss (master fader) and mix through them.

And over the years I’ve used a bunch of different plugins to help sculpt my mix in that way, but over the past year or so I’ve found myself consistently reaching for 3 plugins.

One is new, one is old, and one is somewhere in between.

Today let me show you what I’m using on my mix buss, why I’m using them, and what settings, in particular, I’m leveraging to get my mixes to a happy place.
