1 When ap­ply­ing aux-based pro­cess­ing to a part of your mix, it pays to group the dry and wet sig­nals to­gether after­wards into one bus. A lit­tle EQ and com­pres­sion can be ap­plied to the en­tire bus after­wards, glu­ing the dry and wet sig­nals to­gether into one co­he­sive sound. We’ve done just that with some drums in our tu­to­rial video.

2 Af­ter adding two fresh aux re­turns, we’ve sent our bass to them pre-fader be­fore pulling the vol­ume down to si­lence. Now we can split the bass apart into lowand high-fre­quency bands us­ing EQ fil­ters, and then process the parts in­di­vid­u­ally. This al­lows us to dis­tort the high fre­quen­cies with­out af­fect­ing the lower har­mon­ics, for a more con­trolled sound.

3 If you’ve got a few ef­fects on auxes as part of your mix, try send­ing the out­put from one re­turn to the in­put of an­other, rather than rout­ing all of them di­rectly to the mas­ter bus. By do­ing this, you can cre­ate some in­ter­est­ing and unique sounds as the wet sig­nal from one aux drives the ef­fect on an­other.
