After the first Pro Member Mix Fix Episode response, we asked the pureMix Pro Members once again to send us sessions recorded in home studios with common problems that we all deal with. Distorted tracks, tracks with excessive bleed, you name it, we wanted it.

When we heard Adrian Szendel's submission of "Some Summer Day" by his band "Six Of One," we called him right away. Without hesitation, Adrian packed up his car and drove from Cleveland, Ohio, to New York overnight and arrived at Flux Studios the next day to be a part of the shoot!

The track has some new challenges. It was built from a song idea from Adrian's writing partner, Tim DeHuff. That song idea that sparked "Some Summer Day" happens to be one mono track, containing drums, tabla, bass guitar, and electric guitar! In this episode, watch as Fab and Adrian discuss the song's background and create a plan of attack to bring "Some Summer Day" to life.

See how Fab Dupont:
- Dissects a session when he receives it to figure out what the session contains
- Sets up the session with his personal taste and feng shui, setting himself up for an efficient and productive session
- Discusses the mix with Adrian, who is attending the mixing session
- Uses DECIBEL to set his loudness early in the session
- Finds the tempo of the session
- Places the audio on the grid to help with marker placement and drum replacement
- Inserts samples from his personal sample library to sweeten the Kick and Snare
- Sets up a parallel drum crush bus

Vance Powell Parallel Vocal Processing | pureMix.net

New Blog Post 📝

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” would be an accurate way to describe Vance Powell’s approach to vocal processing. He’s been using the same three processors—a Neve 1073 preamp, an Empirical Labs EL7 FATSO Jr tape emulator and a UREI (or UA) 1176 FET compressor—on his lead vocal tracks since the analog days.

In this excerpt from Start to Finish: Vance Powell - Episode 10 - Mixing Part 1, he’s focusing on the lead vocal track for the mix of Illiterate Light’s song, “Sweet Beast.” He shows you how and why he applies the three processors, in this case, UAD2 plug-in emulations.

Hey guys - who else has entered the Westworld Scoring Competition? Thanks to Pure Mix for the dope wisdom. Applied a lot of what I learnt from the recent interview with Andrew Scheps and Simon Franglen... !
Time in the UK: apparently GMT (general mean time) is used during winter months and BST (british summer time) refers to the clocks being an hour ahead in summer. I always thought of our time as GMT whether it was an hour ahead or an hour behind. Learn something new every day :) 🤓🤓🤓
Y'all are the best. True masters; I am learning so much. I just wanted to say that I would happily pay a lot of money for an updated Andrew Scheps mixing template video, because 1) The Omni, and 2) it seems like his thinking has changed about some core mixing concepts.
Waiting....:)
do you guys have plans to offer an AppleTV or iOS app?
Protools - C24 or the new S3? Clean C24's are selling for as little as $2,400 around me...
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas. I have a bass line that defines a song. I can get the pops and thumps to stand out but when it goes to the bottom it gets lost in the mix. Any ideas on how to fix this. It is kind of like a Larry Graham Sly Stone or Funkadelic vibe. Thanks for any advice you can give
