Bear with me hear...... On my last session I used the Brick on kick drum, acoustic guitar, bass, and vocals, and everything other than those tracks sound almost irritating, thin, and hollow! I went back to my older sessions with the Brick and noticed the same thing.....everything that didn't go through the Brick sounds hollow. Mixing has been a nightmare because everything that goes through the Brick sounds nice and makes the rest of the mix sound whacked out of balance because there is such a difference! My mixes are left with some elements sounding awesome, and the others really thin and lack luster. I've been making the good tracks sound bad so the mix sounds a little more together...even though its crap...if that makes sense. I've been pulling my hair out until I finally came to this conclusion. So.....has anyone experienced a hollow or scooped sound of low-mid pres compared to higher end pres? My tascam pres are lifeless compared to the Brick and now that I think I pin-pointed the problem...it's going to bug the hell out of me until I fix it! Also....I've noticed that when using the Brick...a vocalist can be more dynamic and get louder before clipping and quieter without getting lost in the mix. I'm using a lot less compression on vocals!
