New library release with 2 tracks of mine on it. Track one written by me solo, track 13 a co write with John Rushton https://lnkd.in/eB7D9j3D
I had the pleasure of interviewing Adrian Bushby today: Grammy winning engineer, producer, mixer. Worked with Muse, Foo Fighters…proper A-lister. A few take aways on his mix approach:
Rarely listened to tracks in solo
Used not many plug ins: knew them well
Wasn’t technical: very much a creative/feel mixer
Pro Tools stock reverb for the vocal spring
Automated the mix bus : quieter verse, then up a db into the chorus
Was a dude
It was an online thing, so we used AudioMovers ListenTo plug in. I’ve used the a few times without many issues, but for this session we had nothing but trouble. What I didn’t check was Adrians internet speed from his end. We ended up on 320kbs with a second latency, but he had to also convert his session from 96k to 44.1. Pretty high pressure situation to get the session started so it’s hard to pinpoint all the bits needed to make it work…..but what it showed me was we’re still a way from easy high quality audio sharing.
Ups and downs, but made it to 50 releases!
…and here is the 50th release… the second ‘single’ I co wrote with Naim Cortazzi… a moody pair of beauties
80s-tastic synthpop tune by James Burt
…can’t remember if I posted about the last single I did for him a few weeks back
…massive use of the SSL suite of plug ins on these tunes..perfect for the vibe (man)
I did the vocal comping, tuning and mix on this new Trance tune…out now !
