Today we are showing 3 different excerpts, from 3 different courses, with 3 different producers and they will talk you through their master bus processing! These excerpts tell you about essential mastering tips that can help you with any mix.
Mark Needham is the first mixer to walk us through his master bus process. With over 35 years of experience, Mark is one of the most in-demand mixers in today’s music industry: As a 11x Grammy nominee, he has a track record of mixing multi-platinum records for artists such as P!nk, Elton John, Dolly Parton, Shakira and Train. Aside from his remarkable mixing career, Mark also helped to develop bands like Neon Trees, The Killers and Imagine Dragons early in their careers.
Ariel Chobaz is the second mixer to show us his master bus processor. He is also a GRAMMY nominated, L.A. based mixing engineer who pumps out platinum selling and billboard topping records day in and day out. If you check out his resume, you’ll feel like reading the ‘Who is Who’ of HipHop and R&B. From artists like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Eminem and Rihanna, to NAS, Snoop Dogg, Boyz II Men, Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Mary J. Blige, Kanye and Christina Aguilera, he’s worked with them all!
Warren Huart is of course our third mixer to take us through his master bus process, but Warren shows us how we can do it using only Waves plugins! This Los Angeles-based British music producer has played a fundamental part in the creation of platinum winning and billboard-soaring albums; as well as the development of many of today’s successful artists’ careers. With over 20 years of experience in the ever expanding music industry (record production, engineering, mixing and songwriting), as well as his extensive knowledge of musical equipment used yesterday and today, Warren manages to create the most diverse sound around.
