When mixing, Humphreys combines IK Multimedia’s T-RackS with physical SSL channels and some Urei 1176 compression to get valve-like warmth (or a little positive “filth for color and feel” adds McCluskey). “First, I do like to ride things intricately, even down to the syllables, to get almost like a hand-drawn compression, then I’ll put something like an 1176 on it so that’s not moving so much as holding it right there,” says Humphreys. A Waves G-Channel on the mix bus complements the SSL hardware EQ, and the Waves Renaissance bundle adds parametric options for more forensic carving.more
