Hi Ive got a session of about 18 tracks where individual tracks are all close to zero db- Hot!!!
To Mix for proper gain structure and to have some headroom should I:
1. turn down the actual events and keep the faders at zero-
2. Turn down the individual faders
3. Use groups to adjust stems or individual tracks.
If I turn down the actual events then i will obviously have to consider if ai have a compressor as an insert if it will hit the compressor at a lower signal and then just make it work harder, etc etc. perhaps bussing to groups and having any dynamic processing at that end would be more efficient.
I will of course track at reasonable level so to leave for adiquate headroom!!!
Thanks for any help and I will do my research and search this forum- i would love to see what others do in this situatuon!!! Thanks my friends!
