I think Reveal+ is great. When mixing a song or a record, it’s all about trying to ensure that it sounds good everywhere. With Reveal+, to not only have access to a studio that I’m familiar with but access to other mixing studios to test and see how it sounds there. Reveal+ is an invaluable tool to help ensure the mix is as good as it can be.”
