Great vocal mixing tip from @Groove3inc:
"When mixing "vocal based" music, it is important to always stat with the vocals. Even if it's not the final sound. It's imperative that everything is build around the vocal so that it's always considered in every other mixing decision. With this method, you'll never be surprised when you add the vocal at the end. It will always work because you've built your mix around it instead of the other way around."
The take away from this is that any important aspects of your mix need to be taken into account from start to finish.
The multi-buss compression guru @michael_brauer_ returns for a second series at his new cutting-edge studio! Harnessing the best of digital and analog capabilities, he demonstrates how he mixed the song ‘Bones’ by @Melissa_Etheridge with a unique hybrid workflow.
You will hear the high-quality rough mix Brauer received from producer @John_Shanks, a commentary on the areas he felt could be improved, and his final mix.
Michael Brauer explains how he tackled the project from both an emotional and technical perspective. He shows all of the hardware and software processing used, bypasses to compare results, and elaborates on his reasons for using specific pieces of equipment and plug-ins.
In addition to individual part treatment, he shares the details of his ‘master rack’ used for analog mix bus processing. He also discusses his mixing philosophy, the roles of his assistants, and receiving desired material from artists and producers.
