If you’ve been mixing for any length of time, you probably know how useful (and cool) subgroups can be.
But recently, Joe Gilder has come up with a different take on doing subgroups—a small change, but something that’s definitely had a positive impact in his workflow and has helped speed his mix process.
Previously, he only subgrouped things he felt should go together—guitars, or vocals, or drums—but that approach has changed. In this video, Joe explains his new strategy on subgroups, offers additional specifics, and explains the reasons why it’s making things more efficient.
Joe Gilder is a Nashville-based engineer, musician, and producer who also provides training and advice at the Home Studio Corner. Note that Joe also offers highly effective training courses, including Understanding Compression and Understanding EQ.
