I saw a video on "gain staging" where b4 starting to mix a finished track one would solo ea. channel and zero out the fader then use the trim to adjust the output to -6db. Is this good practise? thx
When you say "-6dB" do you mean peak or RMS? There is a big difference between the two.
It is good practice to bring each track up [or down] to a useful operating level - that is what the 'gain' knob is for - but where that level is differs from console to console and from person to person.
Some mixers benefit from being run a bit hot and some definitely sound better when run at a more conservative level.
also have you tried out magix samplitude? :) love queen of all everything!Ott responded on 01/09/2013 Next question
I believe it's the default peak meter in Sonar. The mix is in the box. I never did this so I thought I'd ask you. Here's the link if you've the time. thx²
