Studio wizard Thomas Cochran presents comprehensive oeksound spiff video tutorials! A tool designed for surgical control of transients, spiff can help take your mix that extra step toward polished and professional-sounding, and these tutorials will teach you all you need to know about the plugin. Thomas takes you through the basics to get you up and running quickly and then demonstrates some more advanced techniques to show off what this plugin is truly capable of. These videos are new spiff users.
Thomas welcomes you and starts by explaining the interface and preset browser, so you can get started auditioning the plug right away. You’ll learn what each section of the plugin does and where all the controls, such as Depth, Sensitivity, and Decay, are located as well as their function. Thomas then covers the frequency graph, which displays the EQ curves and allows you to select various ranges for processing.
Next, explore the Stereo and Mid-side sections of the plugin, both of which can be useful for lending balance to a mix and/or repairing problematic audio. Then learn about the Output and Advanced sections and how they allow you to determine the quality of the audio processing.
Throughout the rest of the course, you’ll see several specific uses of the plugin, including how to emulate a tape machine or preamp, how to EQ a sound with transient shaping, and how to process vocals with an additive compression effect!
