Here’s yet another one of those Roland MX5 mixes that I used to do. Even though I tried to fix the mix live, it was still heavy on drums and vocals so I rebalanced it in Izotope. Sounds pretty good!
Here is background on the MX5 (nerd alert):
So back in the late 1990s/early 2000’s, I had the nerdiest audio setup ever. I had some custom patch cables made that would tap into the insert signals of the soundboard without affecting the sound in the club. I would then use a battery powered mixer (Roland MX5) to mix the show- boost guitars/snare, pan guitars in stereo and the like. I would string a headphone cable outside the club and listen to the mix, then go back in the club and adjust, then repeat. Patrons on the sidewalk of the club would look at me like “who’s the nerd?”. Well, here’s the output of some of that work.
