Westlake Pro recently hosted a Mixing Master Class with noted audio engineer Andrew Scheps. The seminar, which took place at The Village Studios in Los Angeles, was filmed and edited into a video series, with the first of 13 now available for viewing on Westlake Pro’s YouTube channel (here). Editor’s note: We’ve also embedded it below.
Known for his distinctive mixing style and ability to bring the emotion out of songs, Scheps has engineered and mixed for some of the biggest rock bands in music: Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Weezer, Audioslave, Linkin Park, Green Day and U2. He’s also worked with icons such as Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and Iggy Pop, as well as many independent artists.
Having successfully mixed with computers and software or “in the box,” as well as on large-format analog consoles, Scheps brings a unique perspective to mixing workflow, which he demonstrates by deconstructing some of his current work using Avid Pro Tools and S6 control surface.
The Mixing Master Class video series is divided into 13 videos of five to eight minutes in length and cover a wide variety of mixing topics as well as a Q&A session with the audience of around 150 people, most of which are working audio professionals. New videos in the series will be posted on Westlake Pro’s YouTube channel over the next several weeks.
