that hidden track is edited from 3 different songs. i mixed the last 2. the one with dave chappelle and din da da.
din da da was all done in 1 day, tracked in about 3 hours and mixed the same day. i dont remember what we used on the bass though. i know it was some sort of synth, like a moog or something. i had a lot of fun mixing that one.
all the reverbs you hear are emt plates. i used 2, one on the left and right. i think for the flanging i used a love tone flanger call "?" or one of the mxr rack mount flangers. i really tried to go for that really big drum reverb like you hear on the old records. and i was thinking eddie kramer. i panned the toms on one side and the rest of the kit on the other and had different compression, eq and fx for each. this gave much a huge stereo effect.
and the drums on the slower part for the very end was another completely different processing. i really don't recall what i did with the drums as far as compression but i can hear my mxr phaser (rack mount) on the drums.
i'll be starting a thread on mixing for ahmir and the roots. i'll give you a heads up when i do.
