NYC artist/audio engineer Erica Glyn interviews Chris Lord-Alge at Avatar Studios. In Part 3, CLA talks about creating size and impact in his mixes…and how he does it.
In Part 4, they discuss some of the realities facing musicians, mixers and producers in the modern age of singles and MP3s.

E Double making an instrumental on the Motif.

Get more separation in your double tracked guitars with this simple complimentary EQ carving technique.

I will usually make a Drum bus, and individual buses for each part on the song (verse, chorus, bridge, intro, harmonies).
