We're mixing it up for the September 2010 issue of RECORDING-it's time to look at the tips and tools of the mixdown, that magic place where a bunch of tracks becomes a finished song. Mark Hornsby, Pro Tools expert and educator well-known from our Song Production in Pro Tools series, brings us a lovely primer on-you guessed it-perfecting your mix in Pro Tools. We also hear from ace engineer Mike Pappas on a classical recording session where not only the tracking but the mixdown had to be done on the fly... and not just for stereo but surround as well. And Sean Shannon brings us ten surefire tricks to improve every mix.
What would a mix issue be without a mixer? We test the Mackie Onyx-i FireWire-capable mixers and see what's new and exciting in this lovely mix (sorry) of analog warmth and digital flexibility. Also in this issue: the magnificent Everest channel strip signal processor from Summit Audio, two impeccably-voiced microphones from ADK, a tabletop interface and DSP engine from Focusrite, world-class soundware from FXpansion and AudioBro, and lots of other products on review.
The September issue continues our look into the legalities of music creation with more from respected music-industry lawyer Todd Gascon and journeyman recording artist Bruce Kaphan, an intriguing look forward to a little-known part of the AES show this fall in San Francisco, and much more. Make your mixes marvelously magical with the wit and wisdom of the September 2010 RECORDING!
