Tips from Inside Mix
Dave Natale on FOH mixing for Lenny Kravitz live: "[Kravitz] wanted all of the effects and balances reproduced from the records, so I had to sit down and work out how to re-create all of the reverbs, delays and other studio sounds. Every song has a program number, so if an effect is not being used on the song, I have the output gain programmed to zero; that way, I don't have to turn stuff up and down." MORE

Producer Lloyd Maines on taking the digital leap for the Dixie Chicks' Home: "It sounds like we A/B'd stuff, because the first time we came in, we laid stuff down in analog, and then we did the same stuff in digital and everyone picked digital. Before, analog was a warmer format, but now they've developed digital converters to where you don't lose the warmth. I listened to the upright bass through the board and after the fact, and it sounds the same." MORE
