Join us at LAFX studios in Hollywood for a look inside the track with Eddie Kramer! In this series, the rock 'n' roll super-producer guides you through the mixing process of 'Stone Free', a Jimi Hendrix cover by the band Shinedown. Summing through a vintage API console and processing with both outboard gear and plug-ins, Kramer harnesses the best of analog and digital capabilities.
