Anyone who has mixed on an Allen & Heath knows the filters can transform a set, by combining the High Pass Filter & Band Pass Filter together you get the effect of using the EQ's, shelving the low end, but keeping the mids & highs still dominant in the mix. This is done to perfection by Andy C, many times at the End on the '62 and @ Matter on the '92.

So from this, Ive set myself the challenge of doing a mix ONLY using the VCF - HPF/BPF combo, not touching the EQs at all. There is a bit of crossfader/channel fader work involved, and the mix is a little bit 'loose' at times due to both hands fixed to the VCFs, but im really happy with how it turned out.

Have you heard the flip to Phone Tap, Cop Killa? Its absolutely disgusting.

On the download now. I myself have a Xone 92 and this is a very handy way of switching tunes up quickly.
Yeah man I gots the EP, BIG. 'Take That' is my favourite off it.

Yeah its a massive EP. It took about 2 and a half years to come out though. I first heard Phone Tap in Early 2006.
Yeah same here, I wondered what the fuck was going on with it.
Just out of curiousity, I don't suppose you know if 'Gein - The Sermon' has had a release already or is coming? Cos I heard that years ago but cant find it anywhere.

yeah, what rock said basically ^^^
been trying to get a nice compromise between the filters and the eqs. think the trick is in how 'mild or wild' you have the effect on. and being precise on the actual filters themselves. can really transform a mix. also quite handy to correcting little mistakes by wacking the filter on for a mo :clown:

looking forward to hearing this man!!

i really want an allen and heath for home as well :(

Its definitely not been released yet. Not heard anything about a release either. Habit has been a bit quiet recently.

I know its gonna be on a new EP of their's, with a couple or remixed tracks too. Just aint got a clue on release. Don't like it when this happens, you hear a tune and it gets released years later.
