Do we need to use very good, paid, expensive VST effects in order to result a good and satisfying mixing? No, We don’t. In my opinion and many other music producers, a music producer doesn’t always force himself into utilising paid VST. In many forums, people contribute their arguments that beginners tend to search for a very good VST effects to make good mixing.
The fundamental in producing a good mixing is not on the great tool but in the right hand of sound engineers. Whatever the VST effects used, the most important factor is the knowledge on putting the right setting of the sound, that is the knowledge of sound engineering.
One may use paid a VST Effect with lots of presets in it, and he may produce a great mixing result. However, he cannot claim himself as a professional audio mixing engineer.
One with sufficient and savvy knowledge of audio mixing is able to craft ultimate mixing results with just simple and free VST Effects plugins. What he might do is to adjust the settings so as to create good sounding song and composition.
Generally, and may be all, DAW have the plugins pack for mixing. Let say FL Studio, it already equips user with lots of mixing plugin that enable him to create surprising mixing result.
