Analog Passive Multi 2-4-BUS Mix Sub Group Summing Mixer
For the Best Analog Mix mixing and mastering for Pro and Home Studio. The multi-bus compression sub-group passive summing technique is a game-changer for mixing engineers.
The ability to process different elements of a mix separately – Analog Passive Multi 2-4-BUS Mix Sub Group Summing Mixer – and then sum them back together allows for greater control over the final sound.
Basic Example: Arrange the tracks logically and group them into 4 buses:
- SUB Group 1: Drums, percussion, and bass
- SUB Group 2: Synthesizers and guitars
- SUB Group 3: Lead vocals
- SUB Group 4: Background vocals
This allows you to give each bus its unique space in the mix, where you can apply character EQing, compression for cohesion, and other processing
The fixed sub mixers with dedicated inputs and individual send/return for external processing make it easy to integrate this technique into any mixing setup. Overall, this is a highly effective and efficient way to achieve a tighter, more professional-sounding mix.
