One of my favorite producers is having a Remix Contest! Prizes are a bunch of cool gear from Audient and Lewitt Mics, and since I’m a gear head I thought I’d enter…. The Produce Like A Pro academy released tracks for multiple instruments, besides the vocal I grabbed the strings and piano then worked around those changes.

I’ve been taking a Music Business course this fall, for our group project we made a song together using a shared Google folder to transfer wav files that were recorded at everyone’s home to bring together onto my system. Each group had a manager, creators and Tech (me!). I would email rough MP3 mixes to the creators for review then revise as needed. We only had one major revision and it worked out very nicely! Utilizing my other instruments, I added P-Bass and programmed Drums for the arrangement. A combination of Neve 1073 and SSL 4000 Series emulations were used for tracking. I added three separate reverbs and delays to flavor things up in the mix as well, using techniques I recently learned from Chris Lord Alge. For mastering (HA! “Mastering…”) the chain I used was the Drawmer S73 processor for clarity, Focusrite Red EQ for more transparency, then finally just a tad of the Red 3 Compressor for a final “glue.”
Pretty amazing how technology can still bring us together during times like these.
