Plugin checkout #1: Wavesfactory Trackspacer.

A dynamic sidechain plugin that cuts out from the desired signal the frequencies of the source signal. A helpful mixing tool. Showing how Trackspacer can be used to make room in a mix.

Was working on this mix and needed to something about vox/guitar clash and Trackspacer helped me a bit.

Tools of the trade from a mixing + mastering project from tracks for a client tackled (drum and bass).
