I had Chris run a 2 mix of an older track I had that I want to include on my solo album. The original sounded, well, for lack of a better term, "empty"... almost as if you could put your hand through "holes" in the sonics, as if there were dead spaces in the sound. I listened to what Chris did to this track and I'm absolutely amazed at the results. The low end is tight and defined, while still warm. The mids have "air", without harshness. The highs are "silky" and sweet. And, just as importantly, he totally respected the dynamic range. It's not squashed or just loud... It has actual dynamics preservation, which is what I intended it to have all along. I have no numbers, no specs, no scientific data to back up what I'm saying here... I just have my ears, which in the end, I suppose, is all that really matters. I'm now trying to figure out a way to come up with enough money for Chris to run every track on this album through his hybrid rig. LOL I'll try to post a before and after later, as right now I'm on my laptop and the two versions of the song are at home on my PC. Chris, if you read this before I get a chance to post audio, feel free to post a before and after if you'd like. fwiw -d.
