First mix with SSL Sigma and Nucleus 2

Hi,

For the past few weeks, I’ve been learning the SSL Sigma and Nucleus 2.

I have an instrumental work in progress mix but as I play, record and mix everything myself, I have kind of mixed myself into a circle. I need another pair of ears.

My mix is going from the Sigma out to a stereo pair of Warm Audio Pultecs and then into an SSL 500 series G Bus compressor.

I’m only lightly touching it with the bus compressor, around 2db gain reduction.

I have a way to go to feel fully comfortable with this new hybrid summing setup and before I start on the vocals, I just need some constructive criticism of this mix.

By the way, there is no automation yet between parts and sections. I just need to know if there are any serious problems with it before I move to the next step.

Learning the Sigma and Nucleus has been one hell of a steep learning curve but I’m hopefully getting better with them every day.

Thank you in advance.

Lives for gear
Over compressed. Drums are thin and get lost in the mix. Guitars are LLOOUDD. To many things in the mix competing and masking each other.
I would worry about the mix, not the mixdown.

Thanks for taking the time to listen to it.

It’s a bitter pill to swallow but I need to go back to square one and look at the eq, compression and make a lot of changes.

This is my first time out of the box and I’m learning ten things at once. I have few outboard that I’m trying to get used to too. I was never a good mixer in the first place (I’ve always had others record me) so I’m trying to learn it all at once.

I’ve clearly a lot to learn and will work very hard to get better.
