How many of you remember my track called Night Orchestra? It seems to be not one of the most popular ones, but it is definitely one of the most difficult tracks I have ever made and especially mixed. I thought I would share you a screenshot of part of the project. In many parts there are 4 or even up to 6 busy synth layers mixed together.
EQing, reducing reverb/delay or reducing oscillators was not enough to create adequate space for all layers so I had to start removing notes. If you remove correct notes your brain (or my brain at least) kind of thinks they are still there, even that they are not. And you get more mixing space available for other layers 😉
