Sample Mixes

When it comes to mixing sometimes it is nice to hear a sample mix, all three mixes here can be downloaded & listened to, so you can compare.

 

“American Winter” By Lij Shaw of Recording Studio Rockstars Podcast,

This song is off his instrumental album “Skadoosh!” You will find in this mix I have emphasised on the bass cutting through the middle. with the melody of the guitars clearly heard at the edges.

Find out more about Skadoosh! at http://recordingstudiorockstars.com/skadoosh/ also make sure you check out an listen to his podcast! As it has been a great adventure listening to many music professionals, while I sit at my day job making Guitar and XLR cables, Thanks Lij!

 

“Blame it on the Whiskey” by Robert Jon & the Wreck

When mixing this song I did not really focus any one part of this song as I just wanted to mix it as I heard it. So other than employing my unique vocal thickening this could be regarded as a standard mix. If you wish to compare this track to the released please bare in mind the released track it mastered https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68XFiq54kXM 

The multi-tracks for this song have been provided by “Produce like a pro” you can find many other multi-tracks on there website here https://www.producelikeapro.com/ Would like to give a big thank you to Warren Huart as his YouTube channel has been an amazing part of getting my skills back up to date!

 

‘Coffee Cab’ By Spectre Media Group (https://spectremedia.ca/)

So this is just a standard metal mix giving you an idea of what I like to do with multi-tracked guitars, there are 4 rhythm guitars, panned in a configuration of two far right/left and two brought in half way right/left to give that full wall of distortion, with the bass guitar cutting straight up the center!

Well what can I say I am a “Metal Head” at heart,So when I found that Glenn Fricker of “Spectre Media Group” had a metal multi-track well I clicked faster than the Waves Christmas plugin sale. Glenn runs an amazing YouTube Channel, where he is very out spoken and honest about gear check it out https://www.youtube.com/user/SpectreSoundStudios/featured
