LCR Mixing

Post by dante » Fri Aug 07, 2015 3:10 pm

Being a Graham Cochrane fan, this technique I something I kinda stumbled upon from my own mixing evolution, and mixing a lot of high track counts it has become almost a sonic necessity in order to maintain the clarity of centre solo / melodic elements such as lead vocals.

The idea is to only use mainly hard left, dead centre and hard right, rather than half way positions.

Not saying its appropriate for all mixes, but its definitely worth exploring.

I second that.
But the same guy also propagates the principle of mixing in mono, for better eq-ing.
Which is also true.
Both don't bite each other necessarily, as you could start mixing in mono and finish with panning.
At least I check a growing mix in mono especially when I'm eq-ing tracks :)

Once I started adding vocals direct bass Mic amps it became good practice that paid off when mixing live.
If you can't mix in Mono the extra channel ain't going to help.
