Our debut series hits the ground running with one of history’s most distinguished mixers, Chris Lord-Alge! Hosted at Mix L.A. studio in California, this collection of videos gets you up close to observe CLA’s highly efficient way of working that has consistently achieved radio-ready results on thousands of records. He guides you through the steps he takes to prepare, simplify, and manage multi-track sessions to map them across his SSL console and apply his template. He demonstrates his techniques by mixing the song ‘Let Her Know’ by the band IVO using only analog processing. Chris auditions the rough mix, devises an action plan, then gets to work on building a punchy, clear, and cohesive soundscape. He reveals how he parallel compresses drums, reduces harshness while adding presence, cleans up unwanted noise, and much more!
Subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Korean, Portuguese, Chinese
