Polish your EDM mix using the pure:bundle

pure:comp's clarity parameter by sonible

The first thing I notice is that the kick has too much energy in the lows and sounds a little muddy for my taste. To solve this, I use pure:comp and push the clarity parameter to the max. The muddy sound in the lows is gone and the kick still sounds punchy despite the compression.

My bass sounds a bit undefined, but pure:EQ will sort that out for me. I’ll increase the Balance parameter and select the warm Style to emphasize the low frequencies.

I also want to balance the vocals, as they sound a bit harsh. After learning, I increase the Dynamic parameter. This way, pure:EQ constantly adjusts the filter curve according to my input signal and brings consistency to the vocals.

pure:verb's parameter: reverse, infinite and bounce

Next, I would like to make the gap between buildup and drop a little more exciting – with pure:verb on the vocals. Pure:verb comes with these special modes – there’s reverse, infinite and bounce. In this case, I set the mode to reverse, which will lead to a reversed reverb effect. I’ll also increase the Size for an atmospheric sound

stylized sound with a more synthetic style with sonible's pure:verb

Also, I would like to give this piano in the chorus more density. After learning I increase the reverb size and adjust the type of reverb – in this case I go for a stylized sound with a more Synthetic style.

pure:limit's learning profiles

To give my song the final polish I place pure:limit on the master bus.
The limiter increases the perceived loudness of the track and generates the polished “in your face” sound I was looking for.
