Great article. Thanks for posting.

I recently posted a YouTube link of a recording made with an inexpensive, sparsely featured Tascam DP-008ex multitrack recorder and the artist utilizes many of the mixing tips featured in this article to make what I found to be an outstanding sounding recording. The equipment and effects tools were very basic. What is front stage in the recording is talent, knowledge of the equipment and tools and talent again...

Def some gems amongst that lot. There are ways of processing vocals there that I haven't come across before. Thanks for the share.

A very interesting read indeed - thanks for sharing smile Some very useful tips in here, no doubt. Point 30 is very valid - I've heard many pieces where there is much many unnecessary layers. Sometimes simplicity is the key smile

Point 62 and 116, didn't we have a similar discussion on who, or why, would you ever mix in mono "today,"

But good stuff and good find, thanks

Hey You Two,

The only mixers I know anything about have 2 beaters and end up making a pretty good cake! But, I'll take a look at the article anyway ... might learn something!
