Because that’s what the dub producers did with 4 track tape (drums and bass bounced down to 2 tracks then effects added with 'verb on top) and I just stuck with it. I said ‘preferred’ work flow though, I don:t do it all the time. It does let me get an idea of where I could place something in the mix though, \like I think front-to-back as well as left-to-right and I like whipping crash echoes etc around the sound stage and so on. I’m very dub influenced with minimal parts made really wet.
Where do you put it then?
