I just accepted a quick mix job for a dude who’s probably the least picky client I’ve ever met. Everything I’ve ever handed this guy, he’s been like…
“duh!! Wow. That’s amazing.”
…you want anything fixed or tweaked?
His answer is always : “uhh…nope. Sounds good.”
Monday I’m gonna try and do a real mix for him only using 1176 compressors just to see if I can. I did one last week using only Distressors. I had them on about 40 channels, and forced myself to use them. Just to get out of the comfort zone little.
So in this theoretical challenge (which I’m gonna actually attempt), all plugins are fair game, except any channel dynamics or bus group dynamics processors MUST be an 1176, (but you’re allowed to use a multi-band compressors). Would you be able to do it?
