MID / SIDE Processing with Stock FL Studio Plugins (+ Free FLP Template)

Many of you already use this technique as part of your everyday mixing routine, but I’m always surprised at the number of FL Studio user who don’t. I will listen to their mixes, which are often very good, but they lack separation, width, and depth. If you aren’t using MID / SIDE processing in your mixes, then now is a good time to give it a try. I’m sure you will be pleased (just as I was) the first time you hear it.

What is MID / SIDE processing?

Probably the simplest and best explanation that I’ve read was written by by  on his site Subaqueous Music. He writes: READ MORE

ethereal existence (ep)

before i get too deep into this, let me preface this by saying that the ethereal existence (ep) is a very short two-song ep and is something I wanted to release as a way to dip my toes back into the musical waters. i’ve not really written anything new in about 18 months, mostly because of hectic work schedules (full time programmer) and the general bs that life can throw at you.

anyway, i finally started sitting down again and making music… bought a few new vst synths and other plugins, and really started feeling inspired again. however, one thing was very evident when I started writing and producing again; i simply had lost all of my will to produce anything remotely EDM related. i’m certainly not judging anyone else for making it or anything of the sort… but i knew… i just wasn’t feeling it anymore.
