Phase switching all your auxes?

Hello,

ok, stupid question I never thought about but here it goes:


When you have loads of auxes, for exemple on your vocals, do you switch polarity on every single aux or is it useless since as each one is processed it won't phase with the original ?


Also, can you guys give me tips on your favorite lead vocals typical auxes?



Thanks a lot!

I’m not sure that I understand your question. If you are asking if I flip polarity on aux returns to determine which position sounds best to me with the rest of the mix, yes, I often (but not always) do that check. I doesn’t matter how many auxes there are, the process is the same.

The more aux returns you have from the same source, the more options you can explore in checking polarity of the various returns against each other, as well as against the original track and the mix. It can turn into a ridiculous waste of time if you chase and re-chase all the rabbits. I quickly get to the point of deciding to simplify.

Thanks a lot, exactly what I meant. I'll do that check too now.
