I never buy excuses like “I don’t have the right gear” or “I can’t afford good enough plugins.” I’m a firm believer that it’s about your skills and your taste, not the gear itself.
So I decided to do a little challenge for myself. In this video, I take a vocal track loaded with expensive plugins and try to duplicate the final result using only stock plugins included with Pro Tools.
I think the results are pretty close. See for yourself!
