|Question: WHICH COMES FIRST ON THE MIX DOWN: REVERB, COMPRESSION, EQ, DELAY?
|Rod Clemmons's response:|
Always start mixes with EQ. Take the time to EQ each sound and get it the way you want it to be. Once that is done, and depending on the numbers of tracks you have this could take a while, then you start to think in terms of affects such as reverb and such. Listen to some of your favorite artist's CDs and study how individual instruments sound to get an idea of how to EQ and balance sounds together.
