I upgraded my monitors from the Focal CMS65 which were also superb. The PSI's just point out the problem areas that little bit more! Analogue compression on the full mix and special elements like vocals still trump the digital versions in my opinion.
Uad plugins - many :)
Brainworx plugs various
Softube plugs various
Thank god for DAW's, complex side chaining, ducking and automation runs. Not possible in the analogue realm.
My studio advantages
1. STUDIO DESIGN
18-inch corner bass trapping. 20-inch bass trap at the rear wall. First reflection points traps and various ceiling clouds. This helps provide a flat frequency response for my mix room (So no peaks or dips in the sound spectrum). And superb stereo imaging.
2. WORLD-CLASS MONITORING
PSI Audio make some of the finest monitors. The A21-m help me choose the correct eq and compression with ease.
3. EXPERIENCED AUDIO ENGINEER
Great choices and know how comes with time and hard work. I have been mixing and mastering for over 15 years.
4. BUILDING CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS
Communication is key. Understanding you and your sound and how to get the best for your mix/master. If I can help in any way I will.
5. STUDIO SECRET - SONARWORKS
Even the best studio designs still have issues with unwanted coloration from studio speakers. Sonarworks Reference 4 fixes this with step-by-step speaker measurements and calibration.
