And I wonder why these shouldn't be done when mixing instead.
In the 'old days' EQ and compression was required to adapt a
mix to the limits of the distribution medium (vinyl in most
cases). No such problem exists today. Why on earth should you
re-EQ a mix ? If the mixing engineer did a good job (by carefully
EQ-ing individual tracks), what chance do you have to improve this
by acting on the mixed signal ? If he didn't, the way to correct
for this is to redo the mix. Same for compression, it's much more
effective and less intrusive when done on single tracks.
There are three of them, and Alleline.
