Gain Staging: Mix Safety Warning

Guys, I’m worried. Gain staging has caused an epidemic of confusion and stress in the modern mixing world. 

It’s dangerous out there. And it’s too late to stop it… 

But we can all take steps to keep ourselves safe in the studio. So, if you’re experiencing symptoms of clipping in your mix, such as audible distortion or red lights on your DAW meters and plugins, follow these guidelines to stop clipping in its tracks.

Stay safe, friends – save mixing.
