    Question Mixing advice

    Hi guys, I'm wondering if I can manage to get more dept into my renditions. My normal way has been to do it just as an orchestral score (fr.horn paired per stave etc.), but can I get more dept if I would "explode" the parts and let for example 1st fr.horn get its own channel, and the 2nd fr.horn also its own channel etc.
    Also, do you work on mix per section? To get the right balance. - And then combine it to final mix.
    Sincerely,
    Falcon1

    Heheheh... I know my friend, I was just kidding as you know.

    So giving each "player" his own channel is the way to go for more realism.

    Prior to getting GPO the only thing I had mixed was white sauce for my superb lasangne al forno. My progress has been slow but I'm maybe now getting the hang of it. I'm usaing Sonar and my approach so far is to give each instrument its own channel, set the volumes for each and then I'll put some reverb and EQ on a per channel basis - in the piece I'm currently working on the French horns only come in for about four measures near the start, I'm using 2 horns and the f overlay. I find the mixing and adding fx the most difficult part - writing sublime melody lines is child's play by comparison!

    Cheers CD
