I am relatively new to producing, mixing and generally to sound engineering but after finding this video in the facebook group I took on myself to learn about how do my sound-coloring rack extensions work and what possibilities I have at my disposal.
In the last sale I bought the Mix & Master bundle #3 and with it came six rack extensions from McDSP: three compressors and three EQs as if they were pairs, with similar colors and layouts. I went through them in my Ask video tutorials that I got with the bundle, but could not get the hang of them in a reasonable amount of dedicated time, so I do not use them in my work. The important thing is some of them claim to add "warmth" or "color the sound nicely".
Well tonight I took time to test them and by any means I cannot get any sound coloration out of any of them, no matter how hard I drive the input into them or how hard I drive the output stage.
The E670, like the C670 compressor, is ideal for master buss tracks and instrument groups. Gentle equalization curves impart just the right amount of tone tweak. Vintage output staging colors tracks nicely, without muddying up your mix.
A gentle compression response, styled after popular modern tube-based equipment, the Moo Tube imparts a subtle warm tone change while its compression action rides the input signal levels to perfection.
Could someone please enlight me?
