Anyone use a Fatso EL7 on mix bus

Hey guys.

I recently got a Fatso into my rack. MY gosh, it is so amazing! Taming those peaks and adding some warmth is so key however, I was wondering if anyone uses it on mix bus or mastering? My concern is that it affects my kick quite a bit, if I had too much warmth. Just wondering if anyone has any tips or techniques one could recommend?

Specifically for electronic music

Re: Anyone use a Fatso EL7 on mix bus

I keep my master bus clean.. I don't like caking my mix. I use saturation early and often, giving me that warmth and more control over it. Precisely because I want to avoid compromises like: okay this tube is cool on the snare, but don't like what it does to the kick.

By the time I reach my groups (busses) heavy peaks will be tamed as well so any heavy processing from there would be a deliberate creative choice, not a mix requirement.

PS.. your track isn't available in my territory (NL)

Which track? New Horizons on Spotify ? (link below) strange, its signed to a Dutch Label and its available worldwide.

Thanks for the feedback. Agree with you. Just was curious where some people place there saturations. I need to use in the early stages I think.

The player in your signature is telling me the same thing, "This track is not available in your country". Works in desktop app however.
