Litte remix/cover of Contortionist's "Reimagined".
Remixed & mastered at 4D Sounds

https://soundcloud.com/…/contortionist-reimagined-remix-not…

I started doing a remix of Contortionist's "Reimagined" a couple of months back but never got the time to finish it due to moving house/life etc. I thought I'd ...share what I'd done anyway since they announced the remix competition.
It was more of a mix practise opportunity for me. The middle section I started is unfinished.
Reinforced the drums with Toontrack Prog EZX kit.

After receiving a lot of requests, I finally got around to creating another mix tutorial this time focusing on bass.

This tutorial uses our recent live performance of Hexes at Metropolis Studios as an example. I take a look at Mos' live tone with his Kiesel and also a recording I did with the Warwick FNA (which I used to track Altered State and Polaris).

I have some new ones planned (mixing live drums/sessions, bass guitar and ambience/synth/clean guitar type stuff). I hope to have a new one ready by the end of the year or the start of 2017.

I may also do a video recording with no narration. Just a long video of mixing a song (probably a live mix) from scratch if this is of interest to anyone?

This two hour tutorial is split into two videos. Using TesseracT's "Phoenix" as an example, the first video focuses on taming overly resonant vocals by using dynamic EQ. Think of a whistle like sound which masks the vocal sound. Removing or reducing these harmonics helps smooth the sound resulting i...

So after I had a lot of requests for production lessons and not much time to do them, I figured it would be better to create a website dedicated to this instead.

I've created a video tutorial giving an insight into my process when mixing programmed drums. From general gain structure, phase problems, EQs, compression to other "tricks" such as layering for reinforcement, "sub kick trick", parallel compression and a load more. The video is just over 50 minutes long plus a docume...nt explaining some more techy stuff (gain structure for example) which I didn't want to babble about on video

I only have this one tutorial up for now. I'll see how it goes and if anyone wants me to look at something specific then send me an email (or msg me on here!).
