Modern Mixing Elegantly Explains M/S Processing

Modern Mixing Elegantly Explains M/S Processing

M/S processing is also referred to as Mid/Side processing. In order to not confuse people and also to not embarrass myself, I’ll be giving a pretty basic explanation. Another reason is because I don’t like to complicate my mixing with too many complicated terms and jargon. It makes the process of mixing less enjoyable, at least from my experience. M/S Processing gives us the ability to manipulate the side information (Left and Right) and the middle information (Center) separately, within a stereo track. Now before I continue I must admit that I don’t use this technique a lot, but I’d say it maybe pops up once every mix and I use it more as an effect than anything else. Get the Rescue M/S Audio Plugin from Variety of Sound Here What are the benefits? Let’s say you have a stereo track where the middle information sounds perfect the way it is, but maybe you wish that you could turn up the sides, compress the sides, or even EQ the sides. Well good news because you can. But I must repeat, I would rather do all this in the mix and not leave it to a point of needing this type of technique. It works great when you’re given stems or loops inside the mix and you don’t have access to the individual parts. It might not be ideal but at least its better than not having it at all. Another benefit to this, leaning more towards the side of effects, is that it gives you better control over the stereo spectrum of a particular sound in your mix.  In...

Music Producer Matthew Jonson On Synthesizer Music Production

Music Producer Matthew Jonson On Synthesizer Music Production

Here’s a great pair of music production videos by producer Matthew Jonson from his synthesizer lair in Berlin, Germany. He’s got an amazing collection of vintage analog synths as well as some digital outboard effects. It’s interesting to see how he composes and puts tracks together with gear ranging from from Ableton Live on his Macbook Pro to Jupiter synths, a Prophet 5, and old-school drum machines and rack effects. Whether solo, with Cobblestone Jazz, Modern Deep Left Quartet or his label Wagon Repair, quality is always priority number one for Mathew Jonson. The restless Canadian producer is constantly striving to develop both his composition and studio chops. His sound has earned him deep respect internationally, among his production peers as well as the DJ community. So, we thought it was high time we paid Mathew a visit in his well-equipped Berlin studio for a Slices Tech Talk on Electronic Beats TV. In this next video hear Mathew talk in intricate detail about how he uses outboard gear in creating a bass line with ambient effects. Thanks and a shout out to Electronic Beats TV for the interviews!
