These tracks are killin! 🙌 #Repost @randykohrs ・・・ Tonight’s quick minute vid is all about some @elysia.audio gear, namely their X-filter and X-pressor models, featuring @joshshilling’s great piano work on this hard driving @tonybailey64 halftime shuffle song. The Elysia gear really makes the piano pounce and cut through this very dense mix of electric guitar, steel guitar, fiddle, fretted resonator, B3 organ, bass and drums, all played quite aggressively by some of my favorite players. My adversity to hyper overcompressed music these days is no secret, but the X-pressor keeps that from happening here with their GRL, or “gain reduction limiter”, set to grab no more than 6db’s of compression at the most on this piano track. That function alone makes it a staple in my tracking and mixing rig, but there’s plenty more to these two pieces of gear than that. The X-filter boost of 4 dB at 90 makes the bottom very full while a slight 3 dB dip at 250 gets the piano out of the way of the lead vocal. I opened the top end 2db at 4K and 7db at 16k to give the piano lots of upper end atmosphere and breath along with exciting the reverb’s I have on it. I can’t imagine not using their gear now that I own them and am so thankful for forward thinking companies like them in our day and age of pro audio. #elysiaxfilter #elysiaxpressor #tone #500seriesmodules #mixing #audio #recording #recordingstudio #analog #slackkeystudio # tonybaileymusic #joshshilling #compression #equalization
