SSL SiX small format mixer??? a similar thing happening with "super mixer" ITB mix with his mastering engineer... it's getting pushed through a Maselec MTC-1X, that's then punching in a chain of high-end EQ and Limiters that have their own sonic enhancing characteristics and saturation colors... I should know because I have these units in my main rig...
