How to tweak your trap track using the pure:bundle

First off, I want to compress my 808s for that punchy and full trap sound. I’ll load pure:comp, choose the bass profile and let the plug-in learn. To get an even more aggressive sound, I’ll increase the Compression parameter and switch the Style to ‘dirty’.

I have also noticed that the vocals sound a bit inconsistent, even though they are already slightly processed. So, I’ll load pure:comp to balance out their dynamics. I’ll tweak the Style – the ‘clean’ setting delivers a very transparent compression, perfectly suited for vocals or acoustic tracks.

Now, I want to work on the acoustic guitar, which sounds a bit lifeless and dull. I’ll load up pure:EQ and set the Style to ‘warm’. With the intelligent filter applied, the guitar sounds fuller and less phasy.

Next I want to work on these vocal chops. Right now, they stick out too much – I want to blend them into my mix by adding pure:reverb. After learning, I’ll further increase the Size and play around with the Mix parameter.
