In this video I compare applying harmonic enhancement to a mix in the master channel versus applying harmonic enhancement to the individual tracks.
As you will hear, harmonic enhancement can add sparkle and excitement to a mix, and also help to glue the instruments together.
You can add a harmonic enhancement plug-in to the master channel (here I use the Slate Digital Virtual Mix Rack), or you can add a similar plug-in (I used the same one, with the same settings) to each of the individual tracks of the multitrack session.
The results sound different. But how different? If you watch and listen to the video you can hear for yourself how harmonic enhancement sounds, and how the different methods of applying it sound subtly, but intriguingly, different.
