Academy Dashboard Forum Production Mixing Pre-Mixing Reply To: Pre-Mixing


    Mark, I think the assistants to (famous) mix-engineers are often the unsung heroes that can make a big difference in the mixing-process. One example is Ryan Freeland, who started assisting for Bob Clearmountain in the 90s on Aimee Mann records and now does all the recording, mixing and mastering on her last record (The Both).

    Watching the Chris Lord-Alge Audio Legends course from Slate, it’s obvious a lot the mix-prep gets done by his assistant(s). If I had an intern I’d probably get him started on the first chapter of that course called “Mix Preparation” and perhaps give him a copy of the “Assistant Engineers Handbook” by Tim Crich.

    Good luck!
