I purchased the Thinkspace Jake Jackson Orchestral Mixing Course and have learned a lot so far. For someone like myself who has no mixing chops at all, it has been a real eye opener. I recommend the course. I would appreciate hearing some others ideas on a few things. Do analog emulation plugins really make a big difference? Jake does not discuss this or explain why he uses the plugins he uses, he simply says he "knows they will work". He uses the following: Oxford EQ on individual tacks Neve 33609 Compressor Manley EQ on final mix Thoughts? Also for reverb Jake uses two instances of Atliverb, which I find interesting. Two convolution reverbs? I know that some on VI-Control would say that his mix "sound" is very wet, perhaps some would say too wet, but it is hard to argue with his success. Thoughts?
