    Hi all,

    I'm doing s similar thing to you guys, applying the Slate virtual tape via audiosuite to save cpu and clip gain to gain stage at around -18 (I use s lot of analogue emulations so -18 makes a lot of sense to me). I also use Slate VCC on every channel, it just sounds great.

    I actually love mix prep, it's that calm before the storm moment that gets me into the right mindset. I always colour code, order and edit before starting a mix too, it just allows me to focus on the mix rather than break my concentration every 5 minutes during the mix to perform some mundane task.

    To my mind there's a few things that an amateur can't replicate from the pro world due to financial restrictions, but there's tons of stuff that the pro's do that cost nothing, good mix prep is one of those.
