Default Re: Free Mixing & Mastering Templates

Like Viktor Borge used to say - It's your lingo, I'm only using it! (...don't even drink the stuff myself, so I don't have to know how to spell it.) Hope it didn't make the suggestion less valid?

IME, the best templates or presets to start from are the ones that are titled "Flat"

As a general rule, every track should be routed to a bus that will group different frequency areas:

kicks
drumloops (as well as parallel comp drumloop bus)
guitars (divided into more buses if using acoustic + electric, both then router to a master guitars bus)
piano
synths
bass

reverb1
reverb2
delay (really short that acts like reverb)
delay (FX, usually triplets with low feedback)
delay (FX, quarter note with longer feedback)

master fader



Every bus should have:
HPF on it, where you put that filter depends on the instrument being processed.
EQ should be applied with "niche EQ" techniques.
transient designer (only on some buses though)
Compressor
brightening EQ
Tape saturation


Master should have:
EQ
Comp
Harmonic enhancer
Brightening EQ
tape saturation
Limiter








But then again, this is only a guideline and may not work in every situation. But at least it'll give you a good starting point...

Good Luck!
Are you a mastering, mixing engineer, musician..or just a music student?

If you have to apply all that during a mastering session somebody would be in real problems. Is not need to use so many processing during mastering, it's ridiculous. Not even everything that you mentioned during mixing either. Way too much processing.

Mixing and mastering engineer.

As these were just quidelines for someone who wasn't too sure where to start, I put everything usually needed on there, but obviously, each project needs different things. The processing on the master would not normally be applied in mixing but in mastering (along with other processing on the MS channels...)
As far as what I mention on the mixing channels, these are required for mediocre recordings (which I assumer the original person asking the question would have since if he/she had good recordings, they'd probably know what to do anyway...)
