Greetings to All,
I've been tweaking two pieces and have been...shall we say frustrated during the mixing process. Getting instrument balance correct is not easy! I had a few questions regarding how you folks get instrument balance in hopes of improving.
1) Do you balance instruments before or after you add reverb?
2) If the answer to number 1 is before, do you find you have to tweak balances once reverb is added?
3) Are there any instruments that you start with and build from? Is there a method to what order sections should be balanced? (For instance in pop music many people start with drums, then bass and move on from there.)
Thanks for any help!
