Mixing for 2 specs?


I'm sure this is a common issue... in fact I've been wondering when it would raise its head... well here it is.

UK delivery spec is Mix Minus VO on 3+4 of the Digi... undipped for VO

International spec calls for DA88's with each stream undipped for anything: VO interviews fx etc

What are most people doing? I can see how you can satisfy both of these in one pass if you set your mixer up a certain way, but I feel it would be a bit annoying and would slow me down doing the UK version... is it worth the hassle?

Just how strict do you have to be about the dips?

Anything else I need to know?

Many thanks,

Use pre fade sends. That way you can keep your stems going out (including M&E) flat, but your final mix can have all the automation dips that you like
