Step inside Spank Studios in Miami, home of renowned rock mixer Tom Lord-Alge! This in-depth series focusses on TLA's editing and mix techniques used on 'Back to the Shack' by Weezer. Tom explains his hybrid setup and workflow, giving a rationale for choosing to implement a combination of Pro Tools, a Sony 3348 HR tape machine, and his SSL G+ console. Following an overview of his setup, TLA takes you through the mix session and reveals some of his very clever and useful techniques; notably, how he triggers drum samples with high precision and removes cymbal leakage from tom-tom signals.You'll see how he effectively manages his sessions, time-aligns drums, adds effects to vocals, compresses his mix buss, and much more!
