Join us at Electric Lady studios for a mixing series with Michael Brauer! Using a hybrid setup of plug-ins, hardware units, and a SSL 9000J console, the Grammy-winning engineer guides you through his process of mixing 'Life or Just Living' by Caveman. He plays the rough mix, shares his opinion, states how he wishes to improve it, then gets to work! Proceeding to mix the record from scratch, Brauer demonstrates his workflow and rationalises his moves throughout the entire journey. He reveals a number of useful techniques for enhancing drums, percussion, bass, guitars, strings, synth, and vocals. Harnessing the power of digital and analog tools, he strives to bring out the essence of the song by combining parts accordingly, then polishing the stereo print through an elaborate mix buss chain. You'll see exactly how he achieves this!
