A few years ago I was in a unfulfilling relationship, I’m sure we’ve all experienced those kinds of relationships at various times in our lives! The girl I was breaking up with had a Rock Star suitor chasing after her, he would call my home line and have meaningless and unsolicited conversations with me about his car which was, as he put it:- ‘A special Cadillac with a Ferrari designed engine in it’. Haha. This resulted in a song, the song was ‘Love Me I’m Rich’! It seems an apt title given my experience!
I originally mixed the song in a hybrid fashion through my SSL. The other day I was thinking about this song, it had been mixed twice before, once through an API console and the second time in a hybrid fashion through an SSL, both results I enjoyed. But both Andrew Scheps and Neal Avron get great results in-the-box, so I wanted to challenge myself and do this third mix without any summing or external hardware whatsoever!
The result was a 6-hour mix, which we filmed! It was an interesting experience for me, I went to bed the first night second guessing the mix decisions I made, it was like learning to mix from scratch again! I thought of all of the people I’ve spoken to who said that their transition from console mixing to mixing in-the-box took quite some time to readjust their way of mixing completely! So I’m happy I got to document my experience! In the end, I was happy with the results!
We decided to incorporate the video into the Pro Mix Academy, if you have already purchased the Elite Bundle to the Pro Mix Academy it’s there for you to download! All PLAP Academy members get a 25% Discount on all of the videos and the Elite Bundle.
