This Week: Organizing a Session for a Mix – Unglamourous mixing

Unglamourous, Mixing, Studios

Next Week, I will be mixing at Capitol Studios, but before then, there is a lot of work to do.

Unglamourous, Mixing, Studios

I am mixing a new project for Stowtown Records that my friend Wayne Haun is producing.  It’s a “Broadway Project” as it has become known to me and my crew.  J. Mark McVey and Ernie Haase and Signature Sound are making a record that consists of “broadway” songs that have a positive and spiritual message.  I’m not exactly sure what the project will be called yet, but I know it has been a lot of fun to do.

The plan is for me to mix it all “in the box” at my studio.  I’ll get the “okay” from the producer (hopefully) before we get there so that we can just run my mix through their Neve and glorious chambers.

EVERY song on this recording has full orchestra on it.  With an exception of one song, the orchestra was recorded section by section all around Nashville. Strings in 3 different studios; Oceanway, Tracking Room, and David Davidson’s place.  The percussionist had a studio, brass recorded in another studio, Wood winds in yet another.  That’s not including the 5 different studios the rhythm section was recorded at and the 3 different studios that the vocals were recorded at.  Oh, and we are “sweetening” in yet another studio.

Needless to say, there is a LOT of organization that has to occur if you want to take it to (yes, one more) a DIFFERENT studio to mix.

So… This week is mostly the “unglamourous” part of mixing. An exercise “keeping my head down” and wishing I had been more organized. I just have to concentrate on getting things to the point where I can enjoy my short stay at Capitol next week.

What are YOU working on this week?  Anything that is Unglamourous?
