These guys have teamed up to create an exhaustive video series illustrating the differences and similarities between mixing with Studio One‘s native plugins as compared to mixing via third-party plug-ins. Many users have asked questions about which approach is superior, including “Is it even necessary to purchase third-party plug-ins, given the quality of native plugins available?”
To answer this question, these guys took two different approaches to mixing the same exact song, (Jordy Searcy‘s “Fences”) both using Studio One. David is using third-party plug-ins, and Johnny is using Studio One’s native plugins. David’s series is a synopsis of his approach after the actual mixing was completed, while Johnny’s series shows us a step-by-step walk-through of his entire mixing process. You will see and hear their different styles, methods and approach to this song. Enjoy and share your thoughts in the comments!
