1. Gain Staging - I've read a lot of stuff about gain staging and -18dbfs rms mixing recently and I decided to try it out. So what I did is use sonimus satson (console emulation plug) and trim the level of every track til it peaks at around -12 making sure that every track doesn't clip, and leaving the faders at unity. Then after trimming only then that I adjust the faders and panning. Is this the right way to do gain staging? I'm still kinda confused haha but it sounds awesome nonetheless. 2. Reverbs and Delays - What I do before is make a lot of reverb and delay sends. One plate reverb for drums. And then another plate, a room verb, a stereo delay, and a slapback delay for vocals. Should I just use the same plate verb for the vocals and drums? 3. Mixbuss Compression - I've never tried mixing with a compressor on my 2 buss, only plugin I leave there is the Satson bus plugin. What are the benefits of using them? 4. Drum Bus Compression - I also don't add any plugins on my Drum Bus, but I've read that some people use compression on their busses. What other plugin do you usually insert on your drum bus? Thanks in advance!
