I do that very often
and there are days where I pull all the faders all the way down again
often I turn also off all the eq's / comp / gate and effect units in the SSL mixer.. except there are important style effects. but they are mostly involved directly in the rack and not the mixer.
and then i save it as version XY (Date)
which also plays a major:
is the brightness in the room!
when it is light, you feel the heights yet to be pleasant ..
the same mix can be perceived in a dark room as too sharp!
with light green / orange / red I made the best experience
