Imagine if there was a suite of plug-ins, held deep within Logic Pro X, which could radically transform not only the sonic effectiveness of your mixing, but also your ability to navigate the mixing process. Where previously you might have struggled to achieve punch and precision in your mixes, suddenly, your music takes on a new life – with an ability to breathe, conveying the full depth and dimension of the sounds within it. While this might seem too good to be true, there are some simple workflow solutions, alongside a set of associated plug-ins, which can improve any mix produced in Logic Pro X.

In truth, many Logic users have got used to a shoddy method of working, partly defined by the deficiencies and problems of working in the digital domain, but also because Logic Pro’s old metering really didn’t help the process of mixing. The new plug-ins, however, are clearer to use, sample-accurate, and most important, have ‘good practice’ hardwired into their DNA.
