When you lot do DVS performance type stuff, how do you prepare your beats and scratch samples, etc?
I've got tracks of instrumentals and tracks full of samples for scratching. I've used a bit of EQ on the samples and I'm sending all tracks and samples through the same bus with an FG-X mastering plugin. I've also tried keeping the volumes levels the same for all, so that I don't have to faff about with the gain when I'm live.
I think I've sussed it but I won't know what it sounds like over a big system until it's too late!
What kind of processing do you apply to your files? Do you use compressors, limiters, mix buss compressors, etc or do you keep the processing to a minimum? I haven't used compression anywhere before the master bus BTW.
