Shadow Hills MC or Red 3 or Alan Smart C2 for the comp duties. Pultecs or Avalon 2055 for EQ & the T.C Electronics Finalizer to catch any overs and pump up the volume a bit for client refs. Have to say, the SHMC is the most amazing 2buss comp I have EVER heard. This thing is unbelievable!!!

Running the SSL G comp or API 2500... think i would love the SHMC. Heard it in a mastering studio. Fantastic.

Is the minimassive stereo? I thought it was a mono unit

Flute player, HCL! I've been checking their gear for quite some time now and really considered a couple of units, how do you like it?

As you can see they're just optional inserts in the backbone.. Never used more than three together!

Default is phoenix + vt5

Yes it's stereo with two bands and the transformer option is great. For mellow stuff I go transformerless and with rock I nail it in vintage. I don't know why this eq doesn't get talked about more. It's far from anemic.

Depends on the track, But my default as of late would be

Hardy M1 for passive makeup gain ---> SPL EQ (rarely needed) --->160SL ---> Lynx
Really like the program dependent auto (best auto i've heard for "mix" program) & built in peak limiter to catch stray transients. Plus no need to 2nd guess quality or signal loss passing thru the SL.

For a softer track
Hardy M1 ---> SPL EQ ---> HCL Varis VariMu ---> Lynx

If I want some drive
Hardy M1 ---> SPL EQ ---> 1968me ---> Lynx

I've also had surprisingly great results with
Hardy M1 ---> SPL EQ ---> 720 Dominator II---> Lynx

Really depends on the music at the end of the day

Mixing with gear on the 2 Bus has nothing to do with skill, its a technique.

Same here. good chain. I find myself messing less and less with the EQ as I keep mixing but I still love having it there. I've always loved the 2500. easy to make it sound good. but I'm friggin minimal on the 2 buss
