In the May 2015 Mix Rescue article, Mike Senior talks about how he bounced out a mix any number of times to compare it to his references. I understand the purpose of referencing, but what I don’t understand is why he bounced out the mix.
I recently came across an Eric Valentine video, in which he mentions how he keeps his preamps in the live room. My question is this: is there really a valid reason for doing this on runs which I imagine to be less than 100 feet?
I get the impression that manufacturing tolerances for mid-range and cheaper microphones are not always as tight as one would desire. If I found a mic I liked, and were then to go out and buy that model of mic, might the one I tested and the one I bought sound significantly different?
I have a friend who has a problem. He uses two different amps on stage, one a Marshall and the other a Hughes & Kettner, with a 2x12 and 4x12 cab, respectively. Is there any way he can just use one cab for both amps?
I’m using the MeldaProduction Mixing Bundle plug-ins and I noticed that certain instrument patches sound very appealing and wide, but when I check them on Melda’s MStereoScope they appear fairly heavily out of phase. Should I worry about this?
