In with Fergal Davis mastering the new album by the lads from Gorey – really interesting to watch him at work. Feedback on the mixes good so far, and the finished versions are sounding great. For what you would think is a simple process there sure are a lot of channels, outboard and plugins involved!
Very cool how he can do mid/side processing on the mix, allowing different eq and compression for the centre and the sides (L/R) of the mix; a German company called Brainworx make a plugin dedicated to this processing that he is using, and it sounds really great. Of course the gear is only as good as the person using it, and he is obviously well used to the sound of his setup
