"A lot of mix engineers work at developing their own 'unique' sound and that's cool, but I choose to act as a 'chameleon' of sorts by bringing the collective ideas of the producer, label, and artist to life for each individual project... Hopefully, the finished product results in a mix that best represents their vision."
Manny Marroquin's technical savvy and creative ability have made him one of the most in-demand mixing engineers in the industry, working with internationally renowned artists including Kanye West, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Maroon 5, Santana, Usher, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, 2Pac, and Biggie, and hit producers like Babyface, Soulshock & Karlin, Warryn Campbell, Kanye West, Brian Michael Cox and Tim & Bob, and many others.
Here's what Manny had to say about Waves processors: "Waves is one of those companies that really pushes the limits. It's wow after wow after wow."

I don't know what this has to do with WAVES. He never showed any plugins and how they worked. I kept watching hoping I would learn something about waves.. Oh well time wasted that I can't get back..

Not a tutorial as i expected, more of a mix engineers praising of waves plug ins and how he like to use them. Dissapointing.

For some reason these four "Waves Hot Products" courses are all plagued with terrible editing, mislabeled chapters, and very bad spelling (it's Rihanna, not Riahnna, dude). That said, this course was still awesome because the content was so good. It was short and sweet, but its invaluable seeing a mixing pro like Manny talk about how he uses his tools. Pure gold!

I liked the idea of adding a doubler to the fx return. I could have used demonstrative instruction on some of the plugins in relation to the songs he was working on.

Manny shares real-world experience and TNT that helped him mix some of Pop Music's biggest albums recorded by Rihanna, Jon Mayer, and Kanye West. This video isn't gonna teach you how to use Waves Plug-ins like the pros, but you will hear a lot of examples bypassed (before & after), along with some informative explanations and choices that he made during the mixing process.
