Just wondering if many people layer there kicks. Ive been told it is a no no. Also got a question about limiting ive got my kick and snare on seperate channels then sent to a bus. Should i be limiting my kick and snare on the seperate channels and on the bus or just limit the kick and snare on the bus as a collective. Im working on my mixing at the moment. I used to just get everything as close to 0db as possible but ive been told to have my drums peaking at - 7db sub bass -13db and midbass at -14db. And just mix with my speakers cranked up. I was never told about the headroom needed for mastering.
