Charles Dye - King of the 2Bus
I just bought the learning-dvd from Charles Dye called "Mix it like a record". I watched it twice now and i have to say its very usefull.
One of Charles Dye basic ideas of mixing itb (in the box/daw) is in short words to add some analog distortion to the channels and stereo bus. this and his idea of mixing through a compressor pointed me into a new direction.
Beside of the rather ugly style of the video, this learning-dvd is really nice. But beware: it's definitly not cheap (130$).
So ... if you read the next links carefully, you can get most of it for free ;-)
