Transformers in Mixing

Hello, I’ve been watching your videos and using songs you’ve mixed as reference. There’s something I’ve been wondering about and it’s the “Transformer” and there was two other tracks that I don’t remember the name right now and will be watching the videos again. What are those? And what are they used for?

They’re used to add back in certain things that may be lost when I process my drums. For example, if I’m losing some of the transients on my kick because of the compression on my mix bus, and I want to add them back in post-Shadow hills, I’ll send the kick to the Transformer or Transformer 2 buss to get some of that high “tick” back. Same for the Subwoofer aux, except for low end instead.
