Today we have the wonderful Sara Carter joining us to share her Most-Used Mix Bus Plugins!
Sara is an audio engineer and audiophile totalling 18 years experience recording and mixing music.
She believes that all independent bands and artists should have the same broadcast quality releases as major label artists. Everyone deserves a genuine, professional record-making experience, with releases that sound expensive A.F.
Sara had a fantastic experience mixing music at the BBC in London for nearly 7 years. She worked with artists across all genres although now, her expertise is rock, post-punk, indie and alternative music. At the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios, she worked on hundreds of sessions for Radio 1, Radio 2, 1Xtra, and 6 Music, developing her skills by assisting the best audio engineers in the business.
Through a set of circumstances and meeting new people, it became possible for her to move near to London, and go to the SAE Institute and gain an audio engineering diploma. She was 34 years old.
Shortly after leaving SAE, she saw the BBC advertising for Trainee Studio Managers in their radio operations headquarters at Broadcasting House in London. This was her chance and she went all out to make it happen. At BBC, she worked hard and met some amazing people but she eventually decided to leave the BBC in 2009 and tool a complete break from music and audio.
Through some unlikely circumstances she was able find her way back to music. This is where we find her today, with renewed vigour and passion for mixing music with some amazingly talented people and mentors!
