Your Life Over Mine

Join Greg Wells at his L.A. studio for a series on hybrid mixing! This instalment features the record 'Your Life Over Mine', a single by the Irish singer Bry. Using Pro Tools, his favourite plug-ins, and a premium selection of outboard equipment, Greg mixes the multi-track production session from scratch. He plays the raw material that he tracked and produced, shares his opinions, then dives into the mixing phase. Wells demonstrates a variety of techniques for treating vocals, acoustic and slide guitar, bass, drums, cello, and ambient textures. While the majority of signal processing is done 'in the box', he further enhances the audio by inserting his analog mix buss chain. Aside from imparting his mix workflow, Greg addresses important topics that include microphones, mindset, and mastering!
