In this video, we listen to the isolated tracks on a pop hit from the mid-2000s and hear the raw captured sounds of this mix. Also, gain ideas on production and building up a song. The isolated vocal track of Kelly Clarkson is amazing and the harmony parts are over the top awesome. Listen to this Pro Tools session and see what a Serban Ghenea looks and sounds like.
This is not a Rick Beato, what makes this song great, but rather a review of the tracked drums, bass, guitar, and vocals to see what’s possible and or give you a goal to attain and shoot for if this fits your style of music.
In this video, I go over the final touches on this blues-rock track, in the style of Joe Bonamassa with a female singer, and the final mix from the live YouTube video I recently had done. This video details the drums and what I changed from the first video and how I got the sound I did. There will be separate videos for the bass guitar/electric guitars, vocals, vocal throws, keyboards, and automation.
Audio files will be available until March 15th listed here. When you enter your email you’ll a download link window will pop up. https://mailchi.mp/c4ec0d2d5c0c/mixing-stems

This is the edited live stream from the previous week, editing out all of the glitches at the intro and un-needed material to move the mix along a bit faster. The video will be chaptered for your convenience. The audio files are available for mixing at the link below.
In this video, I’ll go over how to get that hard-hitting punchy rock drum sound you hear from commercial rock bands. All done in a home studio without using any drum replacers and inexpensive mics. I would love to hear how you obtain punchy drums on your recording. Thanks so much for stopping by today and would love it if you’d subscribe. Bret Ferguson @ Recording Crave
When Eq and compression isn’t working in your mix, sometimes you need to try other things. In this video I show you how I used the Chris Lord Alge Signature Series Plugins to dial in a mix. I show you how to get a clear sound in your mix and how to get a big mix.
