Hey everybody. Here is my contribution from a guy in Paris, France ;-)
Mixed In MAGIX SEQUOIA
Monitors BEHRINGER TRUTH B2031
Active Subwoofer YAMAHA
Waves SSL 4000, native EQ from Sequoia, NATIVE INSTRUMENTS (comp VC, reverbs RC24 and 48), Brainworx and SPL
So, I tried to keep the natural and the "live spirit" of the recording.
There is NO LOUDNESS WAR in this track ! Only just the wish to get a good dynamic and something smooth and balanced. The recording was in live conditions, and I thing that we had to stay in this way.
That's the reason why I prefered a live mixing than a pure studio mixing. That's my point ;-)
I wanted the voice with some "air" and precision with EQ (5khz and 16 kHz). It is driven by a CL-1B compressor very slowly, with just a little bit of gain.
For the space and depht, I used a room reverb, a little plate and a Hall reverbs. Also a short stéreo delay...
The kick is also compressed slowly, not too mutch, with the free plugin DSP NightShine that I love. And cleaned up with an EQ around 50 Hz...just a little.
A VC-76 (1176 emulation) on the snare/hithats. and the room reverb
All drums go into a stereo Bus track with a parallel compression and designed by the plugin SPL Transient, which give me a smooth attack on the drums and not an aggressive sound.
I also made a volume automation on the drums on the intro and 1st verse. Then they give their maximum amplitude and strenght in the rest of the track.
I applied a BX-SOLO to open the stereo space of the Over Heads. Always an EQ and light comp on it. With a room reverb and a plate reverb too.
On the Guitar, I still used a VC-76, EQ, room and hall reverb too. I also used the short stereo delay to create more space again.
All the tracks finaly go in the master track with a 2-BUS processing to glue the song (SSL COMP Stereo and a OVERTONE DSP PTC-2A, a PULTEC EQ emulation).
And at last, a limiter for secure.
Levels: -17.3 dB LUFS
PPMax: -1.2 dBFS
Dynamic Range average: 9-10 dB
Thank you very much PUREMIX
