Gareeda – The Director’s Half-Cut

This week see’s the official release of the new Gareeda record “The Director’s Half-Cut”.

A selection of older songs the band wanted to re-record along with a few new tracks thrown into the mix. This was recorded here around October time in 2016 but the mixing didn’t get finished until March 2017…. It’s been quite a long road with this one but it turned out pretty good!

Check it out below

Cheers!

Psychotic Depression – Thirty Hours Work Or Less

February 2017 saw Psychotic Depression coming into the studio to record their debut ep ‘Thirty Hours Work Or Less’.

The guys fairly rattled through the recording process and the mixing was completed fairly quickly aswell!

I’m really happy with how it all turned out  & you can check it out below… For fans of The Obsessed & Trouble

A Lake Of Ghosts

Last year I recorded & mixed Of Spire & Throne​’s re-working of the My Dying Bride classic “My Wine In Silence”.
It was included on Doom-metal.com’s 2 disc tribute to My Dying Bride which is available now!

This was quite a lot of fun to work on as the whole thing was recorded & mixed very quickly. The guys wanted a very rough & ready sound to counter the usual,over produced sound of MDB.
Check it out & also check out the other fantastic contributions to this compilation!

Enjoy!

Motorhead – Electricity

Towards the end of 2016 Produce Like A Pro teamed up with producer Cameron Webb to put together a mixing course with music by Motorhead. You can check out the course here:

Mixing Motörhead with Cameron Webb

Cameron has produced every Motorhead album since 2004’s Inferno so he know’s what he’s on about. It was great to hear anecdotes & get insights into his techniques on how he recorded & mixed Motorhead.

The last part of the course was the full pro-tools session, including all original files for the song ‘Electricity’, taken from the 2015 album ‘Bad Magic’.

Motorhead are one of my favourite bands & I had a massive amount of fun mixing this… Hope you enjoy listening to it 🙂

Get in touch if you would like any recording or mixing work done.

Cheers,

Stu

New Console

Presonus 16.4.2

So I decided to change things around a little bit and get a new mixing console. I find using an actual mixing console improves workflow dramatically but choosing the right console was difficult. There are so many to choose from, all with great features and great sound quality…

In the end I got a great deal on a Presonus 16.4.2 digital console. It provides a 18*16 interface for my pro tools rig with excellent AD/DA converters as well as 16 XMAX pre-amps but also allows me to mix much more intuitively whilst lifting some of the processing power off of the computer.

Very much looking forward to getting it set up and doing my first full session with it 🙂
