Hello, this is Brandon with another Mix Minute, and today we’re going to discuss the benefits of channel strips.
When mixing was done primarily on analog consoles, EQ’s, Compression, and Gating, were all within easy reach.
Channel strip plugins bring this workflow to your DAW, placing your necessary tools within one interface so you can work more quickly.
Some channel strips emulate coveted hardware. Others are clean utility pieces. Pick one that makes sense to you and place it on every channel. Use that as your first choice before exploring other options.
