[Review] Soundways Core Production Bundle

While many producers first focus on purchasing EQ’s, Compressors, and other effect plugins to expand the basic capabilities of their DAW, many of these investments will be for nought if room correction and monitoring issues aren’t dealt with first; after all, the best EQ plugin on the market isn’t all that useful in a room with problematic resonances or with monitors that are hyping one part of the frequency spectrum.  Accurate monitoring is the most important factor to address in any studio, and over the past several years, we’ve seen a handful of new plugin companies aim to tackle the issues encountered in many non-professional mixing environments.

Soundways, a new plugin company, aims to do exactly this with their Reveal plugin, which seeks to clarify the most critical areas of a mix for the human ear and help producers and engineers make better mixing decisions, regardless of their monitoring setup.  In this review, we’ll put the Reveal plug-in (as well as their Core Production Bundle) through its paces to see if it can deliver on its promise of faster, more reliable, and more accurate mixing.
