When we’re mixing a song, sometimes choruses just need a little extra something.
Something to differentiate them from the verses.
Something to add excitement.
A way to draw the listener in.
These are three of the factors that you focus on when mixing if you want to know how to make your chorus stand out. Let’s look at one of the ways that we can do this. I use this technique often. And I’m not simply going to be reaching for a plugin here, it’s something that may not always come to mind as a producer.
The technique is quite straightforward but it really makes a difference. It adds width and texture to the mix, without getting in the way or muddying the sound that’s been created so far. If you want to know how to make your chorus stand out, then this is for you.
Do you use this technique when producing music? Or is this something you think you might use in your choruses in the future? Let me know in the comments!
