Today we are expanding on what we learned from making templates in Pro Tools for large orchestral mock-ups. This time, we will make a template geared towards live orchestral mixing and mock-up mixing simultaneously. As most film & game scores today use hybrid techniques, because they incorporate electronic elements, or replace some live instruments with VI’s to save production costs, it is important to accommodate for this in your workflow.
This template should serve you for a purist approach in mixing live orchestra, as well as accommodate for those instances in which you need hybrid elements in your music, whatever the reason may be.
Remember to adapt this template scheme to your needs! Tell us what you think! What would you like to see?
