Lives for gear

I own a Massive Passive and I use it with electronic music. Contrary to popular belief, tubes are fairly transparent and linear electronics UNLESS pushed. I don't know to what extend you can push your mix buss and it's quite possible that the produced coloration will be unevenly distributed across the spectrum. Maybe you will like the sound of the highs and mids more than the lows, so there's some food for thought.

I think it's a better idea to hit hard individual channels prior to your stereo mix buss in order to get a better mix balance. Unless of course, you're aiming for a specific sound. Not that I wouldn't use tube gear at the mix buss, of course, but I'd be a bit more careful with levels/mix balance.
