Re: Lowering ALL mixer faders?

Rounik, you've helped me out a ton this past week. I really appreciate all the solid tips! I've reinvented my mixing methodology this week and I'm feeling really good about it thanks to this forum! I agree about using sends pre-fader, that's how I prefer to do it. Based on our discussions of late here are my new philosophies for mixing (chime in if you think they are bad :) 1)NEVER clip the outs! Mix on a dry output strip 2)When I pull down ALL my faders I always need to be aware of which tracks are associated with aux strips (this will be something I constantly need to be aware of and should just find a system that best works for me). 3)Instead of writing volume automation on a track(when I'm early in process of building and mixing a new project) I'm going to insert a gain plug in on the LAST insert slot (and always keep it as the last insert) on the strip and automate that instead. Doing this will allow me to pull the channel fader down if I ever need to later on in the mix while keeping the relative volume changes I've made with the gain plugin. I hope this sounds good. I'm feeling like this is a good work flow for me right now. Thanks again!Reply
