    Usually we hear that spcae is added to a mix by taking things out or away. Yet i hear of people actually creating space by adding or modifying elements of a mix, how can this be, are there frequencies that, when added, create space?

    A space is not defined by its emptiness, but by its boundaries. And stuff bounces off the boundaries. (Light, sound)

    Likewise, a sound stage can be defined by very subtle elements which fill up "holes" in the boundaries.

    And now ladies & gentlemen... Mixerman!
