The two latest tutorial videos in Plugin Boutique’s Two Minute Tuesday series take a look at mixing bass for small speakers and transparent de-essing.

In video tutorial below, Joshua Casper shows you how to make your sub bass be heard through laptop and cellphone speakers by using Wavesfactory Spectre to add harmonic saturation and distortion to the audio signal.

Spectre is a unique plugin that uses EQ filters to pinpoint areas of the frequency spectrum and while boosting the frequency range also colors the audio signal by adding harmonic saturation and distortion. This is very useful to a number of applications.

Spectre is 30% off at Plugin Boutique until November 6th.

In another video, Joshua demonstrates the powerful, precise and transparent de-essing capabilities of the Weiss Deess plugin by Softube. He will be using some dry vocals, however this plugin is also extremely well suited for mastering situations.

Whether you’re trying to tame sibilance in a lead vocal, rein in a sharp-sounding hi-hat, or reduce harshness while mastering, a truly great de-esser is as elusive as it is essential. Enter the Weiss Deess, available as an individual plug-in or as part of the Weiss DS1-MK3 collection.

The Weiss Deess is available for $199 USD.
