Make Any Session Feel Like Home

Starting every mix from scratch wastes hours of precious mixing time and keeps you from creating consistent sounding mixes. The key to efficient and creative mixing is to create a mixing template system that sets you up for success on every mix.

If you’re an engineer looking for a helpful starting point to use on all of your mixing session Grammy winner Fab Dupont’s mixing template is a great place to start.

Learn how Fab created a flexible and powerful mixing system that is optimized for modern music productions. The routing and effects that Fab uses as his starting point for mixes gives him the flexibility to work both in the box as well as with analog summing with no added hassle.

See how a professional mixing engineer utilizes advanced routing, effects sends, stem aux tracks, VCA groups, and master faders along with default plugin settings that save time and make getting a great sounding mix easy.

Fab shows you his entire mixing template setup using both 3rd party plugins and also the built in plugins. His mixing template is filled with clever tricks and effects presets that give you simple methods to accomplish complex mixing tasks in seconds.

After watching Fab explain his template in detail, you can then download his template for Pro Tools, Logic, Studio One, Cubase and Ableton.

Use or adapt Fab’s mixing system for yourself and get better sounding mixes every time.

    Local Government and Federal Government is such a hilarious yet accurate way to explain Fab's routing, lol. Thanks Fab! Great tutorial, looking forward to implementing some of your template ideas into my own mixes.

    Hey Fab! I love the gate side chain trick, will definitely incorporate this one into my template. I wouldn't have needed the whole template as I think every mixer should build his own, but just getting a walkthrough like this from you and Andrew gave me some ideas to implement in my template, like the discrete reverb paths for example. Thanks a lot for the insight!

    Thank you Fab! One request... is it possible to get the Logic Template with third party plugins?

    This is great Fab, thank you! Just two questions regarding the Logic version you have included.. 1 - The two busses at the end of the chain (50 and 51) that the bass drum and snare triggers are sending to, they are set to send to 'Stereo Out'. Should they be set to No Output? 2 - The backing vox send busses are in place (busses 28 to 34) but not on any send channels. Should they be on the Backing Sub 1 (bus 27) channel as sends, or from individual backing vox inputs? Hope it is ok me asking. Thank you for the video, I enjoyed it very much! Alex.

    @lutman: Studio One does not offer the master track type. The gain stage has to happen at the bus input level.

    Thanks very much for this Fab! I have a question - on your template, you have 11 "MASTER" faders each set to -6 for mixing. I'm using Studio One and my template didn't come with these tracks. How do these 11 master tracks differ from the 11 stems tracks?
