Sat on mix buss

Hi Tchad!

I’ve watch on your videos you use great amount of sat on your master buss. That works great on slow/mid tempos. What about fast tempos, do you keep your master buss sat amount (masterderk, phoenix, studer, satin)? How do you dial on that situations?

Thanks for your time!



Studer, Phoenix, Satin and Inflator settings very rarely change. I use levels into them to control the colour. I’m coming into the mix buss at very low level so each one of those plugins are adding just a little of their colour. The SSL is limiting 3-4db at the most…usually… and the ML4000 shows no gain reduction on the meter but I can hear it. It’s also bringing the level up as is the Inflator. t


Hello, Tchad. That is, you choose the color of the devices on the master bus before the mix and correcting them during the mix?
Regards, Vlad.

They’re usually all there and on from the beginning. How hard I hit each one level-wise changes the saturation. I may take one out if I don’t like what it’s doing but thats rare.


Thank you for answer
