Step inside Studios La Fabrique for a workshop with the iconic mixer Chris Lord-Alge! In this series, CLA presents us with a variety of material from a number of renowned artists – vocals from Cheap Trick, guitars from Carrie Underwood and Breaking Benjamin, drums from Green Day, and piano from Muse. Each video focusses on a different part that is processed by Chris 100% ‘in the box’. Using a selection of his favourite plug-ins, CLA demonstrates a number of different ways to enhance the recordings. He does this by combining separate inserts and using ‘all-in-one’ plug-ins, while taking you through his parameter settings and the reasons for his choices.
Chris Lord-Alge’s talent is exemplified by his AllMusic credit list containing an astonishing 1100 entries, with huge names such as Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Avril Lavigne, Cher, Muse, Celine Dion, Michael Bublé, Aerosmith, Madonna, Green Day, Meat Loaf, U2, Snow Patrol, Sheryl Crow, Savage Garden, Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Black Eyed Peas, The Rolling Stones, Smashing Pumpkins, James Brown, Eric Clapton, Nine Inch Nails, Foo Fighters, My Chemical Romance and many more
He has won six Grammy Awards, and with his position as one of the world’s leading mixers, has been nicknamed ‘Lord of the Mix’.
