Halloway(21 min / 2h47)
Step inside Monnow Valley studio with Andrew Scheps! In this series, the highly innovative mixer tackles the raw multi-track session of the song 'Crossfire' by alternative rock band Halloway. Despite having mixed the song prior, he does not use it as a reference – instead, he gives himself a blank canvas and mixes from scratch. Taking the original session as received from the band, Scheps prepares it with his own I/O, colour coding and template, then listens to the rough print and voices his plan of action.
