84 - CHEAP AUTOMATION FOR YOUR MIXER        

From: Elmo

Here are a couple of tips to use in conjunction with the above tip on using Polaroid photos of your mixer to duplicate settings. Your local Radio Shack or hobby shop stocks small, rectangular magnets that are only about 1/4" long (they usually have a hole in the center). These are great for sticking across the fader slot in a channel strip, one to mark the low level and one to mark the highest level; now, during mixdown, you can simply and quickly move the fader up or down until it stops instead of having to hit a mark. The other cool and CHEAP item that works extremely well is available in hardware/carpentry tool stores. It's usually called a "profiler" and is a collection of sliding needles held together in the middle by a flat bar. They are used by carpenters to lay out odd shapes, corners, etc. by pressing the needles against the surface to be copied. You can press them against the top or bottom of all your faders, note the setting of ONE fader, trace the line of the profiler on a sheet of paper with appropriate remarks about which song, which section of the song, which faders, etc. and you have a recall-able documentation of all the levels. If you change the level of one fader, you can use the profiler setting to raise or lower all the other faders an equal amount, so the relative level between tracks stays constant
