  • Dry Solo + Wet Solo

    Hi all,

    Am I right in thinking that if I export one mix of a MIR project with the Dry Solo button pressed, and another with the Wet Solo button pressed instead, and then load the two audio files into a new project, the end result would sound identical to if I'd exported it with neither button pressed?

    If so, that would be a neat way for me to hand both dry and wet to my engineer, so that he could adjust the balance in the mix if necessary.


  • MIR Pro will indeed give you identical results in both scenarios. But keep in mind that there must not be non-linear effects or randomised changes of the audio data routed into MIR: Any active, non-synched effect plug-ins like modulations and delays etc., or "humanising" in an active MIDI instrument has to be avoided (e.g. by freezing or bouncing the input signals to audio files in a first step).

    BTW: Being a mixing engineer by profession, I would pefer to work on the actual MIR-project anyway. :-)

    Kind regards,

  • Hi Dietz,

    Just to quickly check, is the same true for wet/dry mute when using MIRacle?

    So I could export the track once with the wet MIRacle slider muted, and again with the dry one muted, and when I play them back together it will be identical to one track with neither muted?

    It's an awkward work around, but seems the best option if a mixing engineer may not have the MIRacle plugin.

    Many thanks,


  • Actually, MIRacle will use some modulation in most of it presets, but in a real-world-scenario it shouldn't make any differerence for the goal you're aiming for. So: Yes, this would work.

    Kind regards,

  • Thanks, that sounds great. The modulation would only affect the wet sound, right?

  • Yes.

    What I was trying to say that it will be different every time you play the arrangement in real-time, because the modulation is not synchronized.

    Kind regards,
