Join Alan Meyerson for a deep dive into one of modern cinema’s most famous movie scores – the theme from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’! Throughout this series, the renowned engineer shares the details of how he recorded and mixed the outstanding piece of music, originally composed by Hans Zimmer. Meyerson takes you through the enormous multi-track session comprising 745 voices across three Pro Tools rigs, giving you an exclusive listen to parts on brass, woodwind, strings, percussion, and so much more. He explains how he chose to place the performers in the studio for tracking, the microphones used, and their positioning. You’ll learn how he configures his Avid S6 control surface, routes his sends and returns, groups to VCA faders, and pans signals for translation across various formats. He reveals a range of mix techniques implemented to enhance impact, tighten low end, reduce harshness, increase depth, and much more!
