MIX TEMPLATE is an easy to use ProTools session file, which has been pre-engineered by sound experts, to provide the end user with a ready-made template to deliver the aspired sound, by simply adding the relevant recorded tracks to the relevant channels in the template.
By choosing our MIX TEMPLATES solution, You get a full ProTools session file ready with a variety of channels, all pre-arranged and prepared with the appropriate plug-ins, EQs, compressors, limiters, effects, groups and more. These have been engineered by professionals for different genres, all offered here by us.
You recorded your song and now have all your files and channels ready for mix, now the question is, how to mix? what comes first? which plug-ins to use? how to use them? in what order? Learning how to mix requires knowledge, expertise and experience. Access to this knowledge and experience means spending money and investing a lot of time and effort, you will need guidance and lots of experience and you may get frustrated along the way. MIX TEMPLATE is a great solution to getting immediate access to how sound professionals manage their mix, you will get instant visibility to how each channel is engineered, how each compressor, EQ, EFX and more, are tailored in order to get to the professional sound that you are so eagerly seeking.
After adding your recorded tracks to the template, you will instantly hear a professional sound for your mix, it will immediately sound amazing with that magic touch to your music. While MIX TEMPLATE is a generic template per each genre and style as chosen, it provides you with the flexibility to adjust every single parameter in the template to both bring your own touch to your mix, and address specific changes that you feel are required to get your perfect personalized mix. Instead of trying to go through the mixing process from scratch, and getting amateur results, with MIX TEMPLATES your starting point will be from a whole different level, you will go directly to focusing on fine-tuning, and enjoy best practices and methodologies in sound engineering already embedded to your song.
Have no mistake, each song is different and each recorded sound used in your mix needs to be treated differently. As part of MIX TEMPLATES, we have prepared in advance for each channel in the template, the relevant sound preset that best copes with that recorded track and to get as close as possible to the perfect end result for that channel. It will most likely sound completely amazing already when using the MIX TEMPLATE as it is, but obviously it all depends on the quality of the original recorded track, which may require your own fine-tuning. We strongly recommend not to 'over' fine-tune, you may find yourself overdoing it. For any special tracks that you feel are not addressed within the template you purchased, contact us and we will be happy to assist you and provide a more custom solution for your specific needs.
Our MIX TEMPLATE are currently available for Protools, Cubase (available at cubase.studiomixpro.com), and Logic Pro X (available at logic.studiomixpro.com). For simplicity, as many plug-ins are available to be added on Protools, we prepared our generic templates using only the plug-ins that are provided with original Protool versions, this is so you will not find yourself unable to enjoy the MIX TEMPLATE solution due to not owning a specific plug-in.

How to use MIX TEMPLATES
Here are detailed explanations for an easy and intuitive 3 steps process:
Choose the relevant style of your song and download the relevant MIX TEMPLATE file designed for that style. You can find specific
details for each type of MIX TEMPLATE in our offering, including specific product/plug-ins requirements, template specs, list of
channels provided as part of the template and more. Save the file in the relevant location in your hard drive and open the file.
Once file is opened in Protools, it will first ask to locate the audio folder where your recorded files are located. Your template is ready.
You will now see a long list of pre-mixed channels, properly named and ready to be set up on your recorded audio files.
DRAG & DROP
Drag your recorded files (or use the 'import audio files' function) to the relevant channels on the MIX TEMPLATE. Some channels may
not be relevant for your song, you can simply ignore those or delete, other channels you may want to duplicate, simply adjust as needed
for your specific project.
After all files have been dragged (or imported) to the relevant channels, simply listen to your MIX TEMPLATE result.. Now you have
an amazing and professional sound to your mix! MIX TEMPLATES provides the best platform for a great mix, but your song may require
certain modifications, as the pre-mixed channels cannot perfectly fit every recorded guitar, drum, keys or other instruments.
All that is left for you to do from this point, is to simply fine-tune as needed in order to get your perfect personalized mix. You're DONE!
Please verify sufficient wave size (input volume) of drum channels (BassDrum, SnareDrum and Toms), to make sure these are aligned to the gate level applied to these channels. If you do not hear a specific drum, adjust the wave/clip size until solved (you can do that by simply raising the gain of the selected channel/clip in your session layout).
Wave/clip gain adjustment may also be required for vocal tracks to align with compression levels, and other channels as well. simply adjust until reaching your optimal level as required.
In addition, make sure you align the project/session tempo to the actual tempo of your track, this will affect also certain plugins which are configured to align to the project tempo
