I thought I’d give it a try. This is going to be background music in a Christmas commercial. Pulled out all the Slate stuff and thought I’d give it a go.
The sax needed grit, I juiced it with a decapitator then had to figure something else out. Tried the Slate Tape machine and ramped it into distortion, it did the trick.
I had to fore-go an LA-2A. What does a Slate user do when they need an LA2A limiter?
The one plugin I had to use that Slate did not have was the Waves MV2. Does Slate have one that can do something similar?
I used the Slate virtual channel and virtual bus section on the drums bass and piano. I was relatively pleased. I didn’t do any EQ on the drums, upright bass or piano. Not worth the time. I used 3 Slate Reverbs. A short room, a plate and a chamber. From the Lx480 and the BM7 which is Slates version of the Bricasti. I had hard time getting the Bricasti to match the Phoenix verb which is my go-to for room, but I made it work.
This thing is done, I’m not spending anymore time on this. This dude gets what he pays for. But any thoughts on the mix are welcome. I know its not perfect, I could sit and tweak it all day but this dude is out of cash.
