I found these really cool tracks to mix over at The Cambridge Music Technology website, “Shore” by Motor Tapes is an upbeat and slightly addictive song. That’s a good thing when you have to mix a lot of tracks for hours on end! I downloaded the tracks, 43 in total and got to work on the mix. After getting the session laid out, tracks in my preferred order, color coded and labeled it was time to set up busses, get all tracks routed and start a good static mix. As soon as the faders started going up I knew it was going to be fun mixing these tracks. The Hook is great.
It took a good while getting everything aligned and Phase coherent. When all the tracks played in properly aligned phase the mix just started to fall together.
We just added the Dangerous D-Box to our Studio! The imaging is incredible, my first mix through the D-Box proved to be nothing shy of amazing. Immediately I noticed a “sense of space”, very definable and clean while mixing through the D-Box’s circuitry. Reverb and Delay suddenly clearer, more articulate and less cluttered. The “center” of the mix is now Punchy, Tight and Rock Solid. When pushing faders in the DAW it has been customary for tracks to suddenly get too hot and start to show clipping, the D-Box absorbs a good bit of the fader while adding clean cool signal to the mix.
The monitoring section is so sweet and clean, it’s Mastering quality and it really sounds great. Two headphone pre-amps and a talk back all on top of 8 channels of Summing makes the D-Box a “no brainer”. Instead of the fancy plug in bundle check out the Dangerous D-Box, it will change the way you mix. And your sound! ;)
