Mike Hillier is THE Pro Tools guy for MusicTech magazine so I was thrilled when he agreed to show us how he approaches mixing down a real drum kit. While he is using Pro Tools most of the mixing techniques can be used in any DAW. Part 2 next week.

    Another way to deal with additive EQ gain issues is to drop ALL your faders between 5 and 10db, before you start mixing,  so that you have lots of room to work without have to keep bringing them down over time.
