A little longer than a week now, MIX Magazine offered a free webinar (sponsored by Universal Audio) with some of the top engineers/ mixers/ producers in the world: Joe Chiccarelli (U2, The White Stripes, The Killers), Michael Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayer, The Rolling Stones) and Ryan West (Eminem, Kanye West) etc.
These gentlemen discussed topics related to their work flows and mixing philosophies in general. From their set ups to their procedures when they first open up a project and how they approach different stages of the mixing process; its a very nice experience to hear these engineers share their insights. I personally learned quite a bit ,like for example, how most of them use parallel compression to enhance dynamics in different instruments (not just Drums/bass as is most commonly known!) instead of squashing things out. Michael Brauer gets a little bit into his ‘Brauerize’ technique also. There are so many inspiring subjects…
I have already tried some of the things these guys talk about and let me tell you, it has refueled me to keep going and try new things!!! So, if you are serious about your mixing skills and trying to learn more about it, I encourage you to listen to it. Mix Magazine was kind enough to send out an email to those of us who attended so we can share the archived version link with you.
I think you’ll need to fill out a basic registration form in order to get access to it, once you do that you’ll be able to watch as many times as you want (I’ve watched it 3 times already lol!) Go check it out and share your findings with us down here in the comments box!!!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did 🙂
