Questions covered this week:

  • Do I need a direct box going from my synths to say a digimax preamp or can I just use a male XLR to 1/4 cable?
  • I heard someone describe the difference between subtractive EQing and additive EQing – subtractive is corrective whereas additive is creative. Would you agree with that description?
  • You’ve mentioned some recent changes to your studio – what are they?
  • When mastering multiple tracks, do you prefer to use different reference tracks for each song, or use a reference track on the first song and then use the first song as a reference track for the next song?
