    Do you guys have an opinion on what is easier to mix. A 3 piece power trio on about 12 to 18 tracks, or a 48trk+ mega production. Just curious.

    The one that's arranged the best.

    Hey, what can I say?

    The best played, most musical recording.

    The less elements, the better they have to be, but I also find that you really can't hide anything bad, no matter how full the mix is.
     
  5. trick question eh?

    one would like to think the 3-piece would be a cinch - yet those examples are too vague

    it could be a power trio with two massive guitars and you need to do something interesting - and the big production may just have alot of little rythm fillers here and there.

    I am always happy when I'm able to leave some air in a mix
