Hello comrades in music! In this tutorial I come to you with a recent problem that I had to solve while mastering an album for a friend. In one of the tracks the lead vocals were coming in a bit soft and we wanted to boost it without changing the balance of the rest of the mix. Since vocals usually occupy the middle of the stereo field I decided to use M/S processing, while at the same time attenuating the rest of the middle element, namely the kick drum and the upright bass (and some of the high end too). As usual, you will find a brief description of the method used below the video.
Thanks for watching!
So here are the steps for doing it yourselves:
That's all! As always, the goal of these videos is to spark your creativity so don't take them too literal. M/S processing is a great tool that can have many applications so make sure you take advantage of it!
See you on the next one!

Hey folks! In this edition of Let's Play Music I go over a very simple trick to add some extra life to an acoustic guitar performance and some wideness to your mix. I used this technique recently while mixing a track for Deadbolt and I really like the result so I wanted to share it with you. As you will see in the video, it's really easy to pull off and can be done with any stereo delay plugin. Take a look!
In short, here are the steps:
Hope you found this one useful! See you in the next one ;)
