Since you are probably going to use this advice on a future mix (I hope you aren'y waiting to "do" this "now"), I'd say this:Originally posted by jeronimo:
How do you guys proceed when the stereo buss is "clipping"?
Lower each fader by the same amount?
Lower each fader by individual amounts?
Lower the master fader?
When you mix, try using -5db on your channel faders as your new "0db". Specifically,when you start your initial balance, anyyhing you might first throw up that you would put at 0db...put at -5db. After all, don't you usually run out of room (after getting your whole mix up and pumping). So, give your self some extra headroom from the start.
