    Well done. People interested in this concept should listen to Pink Floyd's album Animals.

    Hi Rob, Your video channel is really great. We have already made some recordings with my daughter's band, two vocals and one guitar with one ukulele. Can you listen here?

    This is the first time I've heard the close/far explanation. I think it's more comprehensive than what I've heard before.
    On a side note, who's the artist, and is there a link to listen to more of this? It sounds like somebody's in trouble...!

    quick question ive always been confused about. so the reverbs on a send, wouldn't you just have it zeroed out at unity gain. why send things differently, then change the fader the reverb is on? been wondering this for a long time?

    Do you have videos that explain analog signal flow and then how that applies to the digital workspace? That would be really helpful in helping me understand what's going on in the digital environment. Thanks.

    good stuff! as referenced in the cheat sheet, can you describe what is meant by "Pre-emptive​​ reverb"? I'm not familiar with that term, and Google wasn't much help. cheers!

    Rob, awesome video! Just one doubt: How do you only heard the Aux channel? I use Logic too, but this just doesn't work for me. Every time i solo an aux, i get no sound at all.


      You can Tell your Daw at what Point the Signal is taken from the Channel Strip. Pre or post fader! That means, if you Put the pre fader listening, the Signal for the aux will taken from before the Fader. So you can change the loudness of the Single Track without effecting the send Signal.

      Yes!! But i can only hear the send "in solo" if i solo the "main" channel as well. Thanks for the answer, anyway!
