The term “Brauerizing” refers to a mixing technique developed by Michael Brauer, a Grammy award-winning mixing engineer. It involves feeding audio into compressors and equalizers to add harmonics to the input signal and using group compression to blend audio together through a process called “counter pumping.” It consists of three stages of “Brauerizing”: Multi-Bus Compression, Multi-Vocal Compression, and the use of dual parallel 1176 compressors for added depth in the mix.
