With the power now offered by laptops and native DAWs, mixing can take place anywhere these days, from the accurate acoustic spaces within a top-flight studio or on the tour bus between gigs. But to get beyond the “rough mixes” when working in the box, an engineer needs processing and plug-ins. No way around it.
In this special webcast, produced by Mix and presented by Universal Audio, Mix technical editor Kevin Becka will host a panel of recording engineers including: Joe Chiccarelli (U2, The White Stripes, The Killers); Michael Brauer (John Mayer, Coldplay, The Rolling Stones) and Ryan West (Eminem, Kid Cudi, Kanye West). The panelists will discuss a range of plug-in centric topics including tips, techniques, workflow and how to manage your DAW’s resources for the best outcome.
After the presentation, there will be a live Q&A, straight to your desktop where audience members can ask Becka, our special guest engineers and a representative from Universal Audio directly about the experience. If you’re looking to tune up your music production skills, come join us for this special webcast, Mixing the Band, and learn how to make your recordings sound like the pros.
