Hi Howie

When you receive mixes from the BIGS... on average what kind of headroom are they leaving you?
Peaks and RMS if you don't mind.

Do you have a preference even from these guys?

I'm not sure what the exact numbers are, but it varies from mixer to mixer.

Some mixers give their clients a compressed file and then they give me the uncompressed file and I like that. But I have received some crushed mixes and it takes away a lot of opportunity for me to do my job.
