    how do folks get air in their mixes? do they use reverb units on the final mix?
  2. Define "air". Some people define it as a sense of space which can be achieved with a good room or hall reverb. Other people (especially those bottle-fed Mackie boards) define it as a boost around 16kHz.

    plus a very good stereo placement can help to add the sense of overall "space"

    * edited by me, in sensible amounts unless you hate dogs or want to mix for whales, LOL.
