    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   When I wrote The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, I was lucky enough to interview the Godfather of recording engineers, Bruce Swedien.

Here’s an excerpt from that interview, where he talks about hearing in “colors.” Is your approach to mixing each song generally the same? I’ll take that a step further and I’ll say it’s never the… View this post

    Ah, the eighties. Every record sounded like it was made in a stadium, every singer working their uppermost range until it seemed as if their vocal cords were about to leap out of their throat, every hit wrapped in a glossy package of shimmering guitar leads and silky bass. And, of course, every snare drum was passing through a gated reverb. Hugh Padgham is largely responsible for many of those sounds—particularly the latter— but he’s also responsible for crafting many… View this post
