Many of you have been asking for a tutorial on how to mix with / use Universal Audio plugins in your mix down process after my review of the Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Quad DSP unit.

In the following series of tutorial videos, I will walk you through how I use them to mix my percussion in Ableton Live’s Drum Racks.  You will learn how to add attack and sustain to your beats using the SPL transient designer, how to fatten things up with the 1176 compressor, how to add room sound and ambience with the EMT250 digital reverb, and how to dial in some tape saturation and harmonics with the Empirical Labs EL7 Fatso Jr.
