Here is what I did, for SAI.

This time the NEVE Masterpiece II > into the TCMD3.

Midrange mass retract work. High range to tape blending for more cohesive high range.
A light compression, negligible limiting, if any.
Working the Vocals as a guide, led to most decisions made. Kept it broad stroked.
Gain seeking via Air Montserrat Input/ Output modules. The masterpiece, graces well at this task.

Playback Workings via Wavelab >> RME 800FW

into the FabFilter Pro-Q plug >
Low Cut: 33hz
1204hz > Gain 1.8 > Q2.0
180hz > Gain -1.4 > Q0.71
69.6hz > Gain 0.8 > Q0.80
4800hz > Gain -1.2 > Q0.40
High Shelf: 22.8Khz +0.3

into the Masterpiece II >
Input Gain 3.0db

1515 EQ module
2.2khz > Gain 0.8 > Q2.0
310hz > Gain 2.5 > Q3.5

Tape Texture
Mid + High
slopes @ 200hz & 1.2khz

1900 Compressor Module
Mid and Low band only
Threshold -5db
Attack 50 mS
Release 500 mS
Ratio 2.1
Soft knee ON

Output Gain 1.1
HPF 30hz
LPF 12hz

>> RME 800FW >> Capture 44.16
No Dither

TCMD3
Normalization
Expansion
Dither 44.16

Done..!

Thanks to all.
The Bollywood WUMP was very interesting, to say the least.

Late with my comments, but here are my overall impressions on SAI. Listening on Lipinski L505's and a tuned sub.

All entries very good. Easy on the ears and not harsh. Most entries seemed to take the track a similar direction.

Biig Niick: Sub frequencies seem a bit too much. Could be some room excitement here. At least from my perspective. I trust that the full-range monitors and larger room comes into play there.

LudwigM: Nice smooth sound overall. Good tuning of the lows and nice top.

OTRM: A bit too much when the kick drum hits. Very close but for me I would have to low-shelf it down ever so slightly.

Kayo: Very good overall. Lows sound about right to me. Good midrange loudness and top very evident but not harsh. In the clapping section I was thinking this is very nice.

Good job guys! Great work. This was a great track to work on.

Sorry for the delay in my notes for this assignment......
My dog ate my homework....(I have been pinned in the studio)

My process for YAAR is as follows.

Logic playback into Metric Halo Mio console.
Mio stereo EQ: + 0.3 at 955 HZ  Q 0.89
Mio M/S EQ: S + 0.3 at 686 HZ  Q
Mio M/S EQ  M -  3.6  at 1.8 K   Q 0.41
Mio M/S EQ  M -  2.2  at 5.04 K  Q 0.6
Mio M/S EQ  M + 0.6  at 15 K    Q 1.0

Mio console to ULN-8 D/A:

Knif Soma EQ in M/S Mode
M - 0.5 at 120hz Q 1.5 / + 0.5 at 270 HZ Q 1.0 / - 1.0 at 4.7KH Q 1.0 / + 2.0 at 27KH Q 0.5 HP 33 HZ LP 24 K
S + 0.5 at 220 HZ Shelf / - 1.0 at 470HZ Q 0.5 / - 1.0 at 680 HZ Q 1.0 / + 2.0 at 27KH Q 0.5 HP elliptical at 140 HZ LP 24 K and 0.25 gain boost over M.

Foote P3S ME
135:1 in RMS mode with HPF engaged hitting at a couple DB max...

ULN-8 A/D with Mio limit soft knee just for overs..


Flux Elixir Final Limit (which BTW I did not hit near hard enough!) I never send out stuff this soft!

As For My Brothers....

BiigNiick. I quite liked the overall level and the track in your hands has a lot of impact.
              I feel that there is something in the 8K region that gets a little strident and perhaps
              a little to much 120HZ for my taste subjectively. Really strong work!
Lowland.  A lot of energy in the upper mid and 3-5 K-ish. Perhaps a little aggressive
.

OTRM      I love how the vocal translates in this master. Very nice overall. The high end
              is present but not hard sounding.(my esthetic ) The low end is very nice in that I can
              feel both the first harmonic of the kick and a connection to the fundamental of the
              lead vocal if this makes sense. This track feel integrated a pleasing way and at
              a good level. I think my favorite!
Babaluma Feels a little shy in the 350/450HZ area and a little hot in the 1.5 to /3 K region. 
              Again good work but a little scooped and bright for my esthetic.   
Mmarra    I like the midrange treatment a lot in this version. My only comment is I feel
               something around 105 to 120 that could be slightly tighter subjectively. really
              strong work!

Thanks folks!

Thanks Michael.

Foote P3S ME
135:1 in RMS mode

My goodness me! Then I saw the '3' on the numerical part of my keyboard is right next to the '.'

I"ve been using the Foote on electronic dance material of late, first time I've really got into the attack and release controls (A/R mode) - fab! However, RMS is the choice here most of the time (often between 1.2 and 1.5:1) and works very well.

Aha! Holmes here thought it was 1.5:1, glad I mentioned it - always interesting to see what others do with equipment in common.

For the Yaar mix that I mastered I used the following in sequence and I worked all ITB:

- Nebula ATR-102 30ips tape sim
- Brainworx BX_Digital EQ in M/S: +0.2 db @ 82 Hz mid; -0.3 db @ 117 Hz mid; -0.2 @ 5.13 kHz mid; +0.3 @ 345 Hz side
- Softube Passive EQ in M/S: -1 db @ 1.5 kHz mid
- SPL PassEQ: +0.3 @ 26 Hz; +0.68 @ 20 kHz
- Magix Ammunition compressor: about 1 db of GR in the mids, 750 Hz to 4 KHz
- Brainworx Eysia Alpha compressor: about 1.5 db of GR with sidechain at 125 Hz
- Softtube Vari compressor: about 0.5 GR over the mix
- Mid Gain of -0.4 db
- Sonnox Limiter: enhance at 80%
- Fabfilter Pro-L: Output at -0.30 db, Gain = 1.88, Oversampling = 2x

My overall goal was to smooth out and push down the vocals a bit. Also I wanted to give the track a bit more low end since it had that reggae feel :)
