TIP OF THE DAY

Gain structure

Proper gain structure is something people don’t really talk about, but at the mixdown stage it’s as important as compression, eq etc. The quickest way to set up good gain structure is to set all your track faders to either -6db or if you still clipping the 2buss -12db. Pull all aux and buss down as well, but leave your 2buss on 0db.

ONE RULE, and i’m not going to go into the reason’s why because it’s 2 long winded and technical BUT NEVER MOVE YOU MAIN OUTPUT FADER, IT SHOULD STAY ON 0db AT ALL TIMES!!!
