What made the mix process easy when you were here?

 

The mixing process here was great because our mixing engineer Paul Garcia, he wasn't limited to what plugins he could use, I would say that was one major benefit because Little Fish Audio has every plugin you can think of fully authorized, he could just pull up whatever UA compressor you want to throw on there or EQ and not only that he could pick whichever one he wanted, but he could put as many as he wanted. Some sessions we had like 90, 100 UA plugins running all at the same time and that's because we have the quad and the Apollo and then we have the OCTO card down below.

 

Aside from that, the room, the control room is very well treated and the listening position has the clouds over it and the bass traps in the corners. It just gives you a very true perspective of your mix. Aside from that, the monitoring was very helpful. The atoms, the S2X's were what Paul used most to simulate that wall sound and to give him what his mix was going to sound like. Then when we wanted to hear what the bass was going to sound like in the car, in another kind of stereo, we would switch to the general x which were not paired with the sub, but give you a more well rounded mix, including the bass, so we're able to hear that.

 

If we wanted a more clear perspective of our mid range, we switch to the NS10's, which give you that and also provide a very vintage sounding mix, so it was nice to hear different kinds. My personal favorite are the atoms because they give you some very modern clean sound.
