Too much harmonic content


Lets say in mix or mastering You have too much harmonic distortion content - its from digital vst distortions (or something else). Whats Your strategy and tools to make this less harsh and still with good drive ?

first, i ask the people to mix again with less...

if this is not possible....

then i really need to cut the hi-end a lot..... sometimes even with a curve starting around 11khz...

a other nice way to smooth the hi-end is record thru tape.

and always cut out the resonances with a sharp eq.
