Pro Tools 302: Mixing EDM In Pro Tools

Alex begins by selecting SoundToys' PanMan plug-in on a stereo vocal track. He dials in an auto-pan setting that makes the signal ping pong between the left and right channels. Next up is iZotope's Alloy, which he uses to add multiband compression and EQ as well as exciting, plus a limiter to make sure the vocal doesn't clip. Then a send channel is used not for reverb as is common, but for adding distortion. Alex also explains how to use automation in Pro Tools' mixer to creatively vary the amount of send effect over time for a more dynamic result.
