    Hey All,

    I just finished working on the ROMP tune and I thought
    I'd start a thread on the Gear/Procedures that
    each engineer used to complete the project...

    Unfortunately, since I don't use a DAW,
    I couldn't really take advantage of the 24bit mixes
    (too bad there wasn't a CD24 mix for the Masterlink users)...

    First, I played the 16bit mix through my Finalizer
    (w/no dither) to convert to Analog while boosting
    the overall level a little for the next stage...

    Then, I went thru the FATSO for just a dusting of
    Saturation, Warmth and Tranny (I used no Compression here)...

    Next, thru the Avalon 747's Valve Circuit and
    Compressor (2.5:1, long attack, quick release,
    threshold set for just a couple of dB gain reduction...
    Then thru the 747's graphic EQ to slightly dip the
    lower-mids and to add some high air...

    Finally since I'm borrowing a friend's
    Apogee Rosetta, I ran the mix thru it for
    the UV22HR and the Soft Limit...

    Resulting in a mastered mix that is powerful
    and robust, without being squished to death... ;)

    Then into the Masterlink to burn a Redbook CD...
