Why compete with the best mixing engineers?
Graham our good friend over at Recording Revolution, has started off more producers, engineers and mixers in this business than probably anybody else. He is fantastic at cultivating and mentoring young up and coming people. He did a video recently called “Should you be a jack of all trades?” which is a very interesting discussion point.
My answer to your question is YES and NO!
If you have more budget than you could ever imagine and you can cherry pick the finest people in the world you’ll (more often than not) get incredible results. You’re going to increase the likelihood of getting a great sounding track if you hire an external mixer that also works in your genre, has tons of credits, and most importantly has really good sounding mixes.
If you have a limited budget, which let’s face it is 99% of us, you’re going to have to learn a bit of everything. Take your time, enjoy the process, learn, get into our community! There are so many people that are willing to help! We have a wonderful supportive community here!
I answer your all of the following questions in the video below!
• Why compete with the best mixing engineers?
• Cutting stuff from the kick… how narrow or wide
• Does the tone of the bass and kick have any relation to where you’ll eq to HP or LP or cut or is it basically in the same area no matter what?
• What’s the difference between using that phase tool and actually moving the sample forward in time?
• General question, how much should we remove the dynamics of a performance?
• Do you gate your toms?
