Toontrack Music Tosses Off EZmix – Mixing Plug-In For Morons
Toontrack Music has released EZmix, a channel-strip Happy Meal for Mac and PC. Toontrack, in collaboration with DSP developers Overloud, has developed a simplified plug-in that gives the noob an array of presets for several basic mixing scenarios.
Simply call up EXmix on a specific track in your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), select an appropriate preset and Wha-La! You can now call yourself a bonafide Mixing Engineer. (Kinda like calling yourself a doctor because you watch ER. —Ed.) The problem with this product is that it doesn’t do anything to teach an enthusiast about the art of mixing, using compression, effects, panning, etc. Nothing.
Toontime’s EZmix costs €49 and is available now for Mac and PC in the AU, RTAS and VST plug-in flavas. More information on the
