Happy November! Once the tracking's done, we move on to the mix, and getting your tracks to come together into a cohesive and musical whole is a challenge we all face when recording and presenting our music. When it's time to mix, count on this issue of RECORDING to help make your mixes sound their best.
We hear from mixing engineers working in large studios and small, with advice on many aspects of the mix process. How you edit your drum tracks can actually affect how big your mix sounds-in this issue we'll teach you a few tricks of the trade. We also explain how to organize a mix session for maximum musicality and effectiveness, how mid-side recording impacts the mix, and we give you an in-depth look at stereo imaging and how to get the most vibrant and attention-grabbing soundstage in your mixes.
This issue is full of mix-friendly gear reviews, too... From the newest PreSonus StudioLive digital console, bringing its suite of powerful software tools to a new standard of affordability and portability, to the Roll Music Folcrom, a uniquely simple yet powerful analog summing mixer. There's a standard-setting new program for creating high-quality compressed-format digital mixes from Sonnox, high-end headphones from Shure, a powerful multitrack interface from TASCAM, sequencers for iOS (including Apple Garageband), and a variety of Mac and PC software and soundware.
Add in the first part of a 2-part article by engineer/producer/educator Mark Hornsby on what you really need to know to succeed in the music business, our usual slate of monthly features, Readers' Tapes with Marty Peters, and more, and you have an issue that will tickle your fancy and enlighten your studio work, whether you're mixing, tracking, or composing on the fly. Mix with magic, with the help of the November RECORDING!
