Enter the studio of wildly creative musician, songwriter, producer and mixer David Wrench! In this six-part series, Wrench takes you through the process of crafting a record by his electronic duo 'Audiobooks'. The song is called 'Friends In the Bubble Bath', and it is exemplary of the band's quirky, old-school aesthetic. Learn about the unusual approach to songwriting taken by Evangeline Ling and David Wrench, with drummer Stella Mozgawa (of the band 'Warpaint') performing on the record. With a multi-track session, Wrench explores the song's arrangement and reveals his mixing techniques with simple yet effective plug-in chains. He also explains his methods of creating samples and discusses why he has moved to mixing fully 'in the box' while opting for analog synthesis over MIDI. He elaborates on why he avoids parallel processing, mixes with a limiter, and handling the issue of dynamic range with clients requesting more apparent loudness.
