    Usually a little cut at 1.5k and a HP/LP into a limiter for taming and thats about it. It sounds amazing on its own and doesnt need much work once you dial in something nice and strong

    This helps a crap load! I do the same. It gets rid of that cheap hollow sound!

    good point.
    except I tend to scoop at bit lower.
    more around the 250-400 area depending on the mix. 500 is a bit too high to scoop for my tastes

    distorsion is ze shit, the new TSE B.O.D. kicks butt on a highpassed track whilst keeping a tight clean DI low-track compressed and multibanded to shit.

    I think I found something interesting while searching around. This is an old post so I'm pretty sure this
    has changed. (But it's only a starter after all)

    Edit: I didn't realize this was already posted on another thread. But oh well! :D
