Incredible

Mix sounds really crisp too, Meyers is crushing. I think I’m back on the UM train

Yea bumped that on the ride into work today, stood out to me at the time and definitely holds up.

Halfway through, first set was good. Saturation definite highlight

My thoughts on the mix are meh. Super glad I can hear Joel more clearly, but mad at how much Kris is in there. Overtakes everything.

Also there’s like less “bleed” almost? It was VERY noticeable during Alex’s House and 2x2 where the delay/sustain just wasn’t there during quiet parts. Made it feel a touch awkward and more quiet almost.

Maybe he’s using less audience mic feedback. Idk. Definitely different and will take some getting used to

I feel like the mix improved over the run and by 7/6 and 7/7’s the mix is noice.

Happy to hear. Only made it through 7/4. Drums were a bit much. We were spoiled with Mitchel mixes.

Yah even by the back half of 7/4 it’s vastly improved

Chris’s mixes had definitely declined the past couple years for me. I dunno if maybe the band downgraded their rig to reduce costs?

Listening to these shows sort of reminds me of old '04 SBD mixes with really punchy drums, less crowd, almost a more intimate sound. I really like the change of pace.

I don’t listen to UM on Nugs much but this has been needed for a long time IMO (unless the crowd noise is borters booing whistle kids).

We should start a rumor at shows that Mitchell quit because he wanted to put a gun in his mouth after the 10,000th time “hot Joel” girl went off

Onto 7/5 and huge fan of the new mix now. I can hear everyone clearly but it’s not overbearing or muddy. Real big fan
