Mixing a Grand Piano in a Rock Mix with guitars, drums, bass, vocals. Piano's are such a midrange eater, it starts out competing with everything else in the mix, so you gotta find its spot of course. Sometimes it can be challenging to do so without taking the "classiness" and "body" out of its sound. So I thought it would be interesting to hear from everyone what frequencies they give to the piano in that scenario and any tricks they use? I'm always in a predicament to either high pass it around 125, or shelf it and let a little bit of lows seep down. Generally pianos also have a strong top end that will compete with cymbals and possibly vocals as well, so I generally Low Pass it to where it sound right and isn't competing with those.
