Hi VP fam,
Depth in a recording is the third dimension that brings recordings back from sounding flat.
I remember early in my production career I bought multiple books on Amazon in an attempt to learn how to add depth to my flat recordings and they left me feeling lost. Nothing worked.
When producers refer to depth many can’t explain how to implement it, they just know it needs more of it.
In this article we will learn how to easily implement it. If you wish to skip the article and watch a video tutorial, scroll down to the video tutorial we created below.
Ok let’s get started…
The goal for adding depth is to add space subconsciously to a recording.
The recording should now have a new sense of space. Since we surgically added the space on a bus it should sit in the back almost subconsciously in the mix.
We use this trick all the time. Most professional producers use this trick religiously.
