The first MWTM series with renowned mixer Chris Coady has landed! Hosted at EastWest Studio 3 in Hollywood, these videos reveal how Coady mixed the 2022 indie rock single ‘Make It Right’ by Sasami.
He gives an overview of how his workflow evolved since he began mixing at age eighteen, and reasons why he sometimes opts for mixing ‘in the box’ while other times will implement a hybrid approach. Chris discusses his professional relationship with the artist and goals for this project, then dives into the session.
You’ll see how he mixed the song entirely within Pro Tools, learn about his clever template in detail, and note his favorite plug-ins used for specific purposes. He shares his techniques for parallel processing, adding excitement to vocals, widening the mix while retaining central energy, and much more!
