If you mix on Yamaha consoles, here is tip number I’ve lost count…Delay LCR. It will be your friend. I promise.
A few weeks ago I spent an evening mixing on a Meyer rig with a Yamaha PM5D at FOH. After having spent 2 years on a PM1D at Kensington, it was like coming home to an old friend. No plug-ins, parallel compression, or other tricks – just focusing on the fundamentals that make a mix great. It’s a great reminder that the engineer and musicians are what make a mix. The tools are only that – tools.
