If you are just getting into EDM, or just want a fresh… View this post

    Editors Note: For more information on console maintenance, check out Zen & The Art Of Mixing Console Cleaning & Maintenance. I’ve cleaned a lot of faders over the years and suppose I’ve gotten a little bold when it comes to tearing a fader apart and giving it a good bath. And I’ve learned the hard way just how much punishment a fader can take before it breaks.  In some cases, a certain amount of brute force is required to crack… View this post
