I've always taken your opinions in the highest regard on this board. Your very much into the Flux brand of products for compression and EQ in general for software???
I like the Flux plug-ins because they offer flexibility and they sound great. While I mostly use hardware, I use it in combination with digital processing such as the Flux plug-ins.
The Solera offers unparalleled flexible (some would say advanced) dynamic processing, which enables me to do things I can't do in other compressors. The Epure is simply a standard minimum phase equalizer but it has M/S functionality and other interface features which I find suits my workflow well. The Limiter has the ability to control a sidechain filter for the release (envelope), has a good interface, and sounds great.
Honestly my respect started a couple of years ago when you where the only other one on the board that heard the 'broken glass' effect of the L3. You spoke highly of the Sonalksis and I was sold on them after I grabbed the demo and the SSL presets you made..
So now its FLUX eh?
Since digital technology is constantly evolving I use whatever I find is best at the moment (for me).
I generally stay clear of emulation type plug-ins for mastering since I find the real deal almost always sound better. I use digital for the things that digital does best.
I own plug-ins from almost all brands, such as Waves, Sonalksis, Sonnox Oxford, and Flux. I still use Waves plug-ins when mixing, but they don't see a lot of use in my mastering workflow anymore.
Any personal recommendations for your mastering work flow with the FLUX stuff for mastering? What about mix down?
I'm not sure what you would like to know about the mixdown? I have a lot of tips on using the Flux plug-ins but that's another story. Flux has asked if I would like to do some video tips for their plug-ins, which I probably will do in the next couple of months or so. Just for the record, I'm not affiliated with Flux or Sonalksis or any other developer (no money is involved) but I like to get involved in the tools I use daily, and we ping-pong ideas and tests.
