Nice way to persuade inexperienced drummer we need to turn him down in the mix
Erm... thread title says it all really.
We're doing a five track EP on a budget, not much time to mix. Have got a nice balanced, drum-heavy sound for four of the five tracks. But one of them's much quieter - at least at the start - and I think we need to turn him down a reasonable amount for it to have the right dynamic. He's adamant that he likes how it sounds but I think he's just not great at stepping back and hearing the whole song rather than focussing on his contribution.
What's a nice, persuasive way to talk him round?
