    So tell me Dave why would you want it to sound like a Yamaha or is that where I am going wrong all these years.
    Greetings from a rainy field in Kent [:D]

    there are plenty of young engineers in switzerland and they (mostly) come from yamaha land (digitally spoken)
    they are basically good engineers BUT a bunch of screamers their mixes sound like the yamaha desks (crying cristals aargh)
    they use so much compression,their mixes sound like loudnesswar mp3s (in switzerland we call these wav files fondue turds),
    the front sound is always at the edge no space left, they do not understand how to create “volume/power sensation” with the subs,
    they do not understand how, through a show, one can have relaxing moments…if a tribute to ac/dc band plays ROCKER but the next song on the list is THE JACK i usually bring down the front approx 10 percent (down to 102db), to be able being back “up” full power for THE JACK (108db harhar) wich makes it huge and so on….what can i say i am getting old……
    ps: and they havent ever heard of a thing called “midfrequencies” and use gates on floortoms…

    cheers

    I am grateful for your knowledge it will help me steer clear of that kind of thing,Love the phrase “Fondue Turd” I will remember that for sure.
    I shall just count myself lucky I deal with mostly Classical (it has Dynamics) and a couple of veteran Prog artists that just throw curved balls all the time.
    Ah well greetings still raining but no longer in Kent.

    Hi mumu,

    The RTA follows PAFL – you may know this..
    so if you have to PAFL the mix that you have GEQ fader flipped.

    or you havent got the GEQ peak meter mode selected and your mix is not hot in level. Check mixer surface setup preferences ‘show RTA peak band’.

    hope this helps.

    So you have to PAFL the mix that you have GEQ fader flipped in order to see the RTA data on the meters.

    Or you havent got the GEQ peak meter mode selected and your mix is not hot in level and the RTA meters are too cool. Check mixer surface setup preferences ‘show RTA peak band’.

    hope this helps.
