We talkin’ bout, “LoFi Hip Hop Mixing Templates?”
Picture this: you’ve spent weeks, maybe even months antagonizing over the perfect instruments to record your track with. You’ve played with the EQ, compression and effects endlessly until you were able to finally find the right sound for the genre you’re playing in. Next comes the mixing and mastering, which has taken you double time due to all the extra adjustments you’ve made in the previous stages of the song’s composition! Fear not, because all this extra work in the future can be avoided by using a mixing template, which is a guiding outline preloaded into a DAW, already including the tracks, buses and instruments you will need in order to begin recording.
Most DAWs, such as Ableton, Logic and FL Studio come with mixing templates as standard for vocal takes, guitars, and drums, which will come preloaded with audio effects routed to buses. In this article, we will be discussing the top 5 reasons why you should be using a mixing template to mix your work. Additionally, we will be introducing you to some of Lofi Weekly’s very own mixing templates, which are free to use for any musician and were created in 5 different DAWS to ensure we enable as many producers / artists to use it as possible! These templates are compatible with FL Studio, Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, and Studio One!
