Your regular activity and contributions to this forum are mucho appreciated! So glad you found us. For clarity's sake.... from your SOP thread: Am I to understand that you will take groups of performance data and make sub-mixes, ie.: 1) drums all mixed to a stereo pair - and add mastering effects - and then send that back to an open stereo pair 2) perhaps multiple guitar parts (harmonies or whatever) mixed to a stereo pair - add mastering effects - and then send those back to an open stereo pair of their own 3) perhaps piano and bass mixed together to a stereo pair - add mastering effects - and then push those back to another stereo pair.... ...and then make your final mix of these different groupings with the mastering effects already done? Is that right? Or close?
