In this video, my mind is blown that I never knew this before. I’ve had the AC/DC Back In Black album since it came out when I was in High School. Comment below about this and what are your thoughts? From a production perspective, I really like it.
In this video, I will show you a couple easy EQ tricks to get your kick drum to sound huge and massive. This will help you give weight to your kick drum regardless of genre or music style…..that might have been a redundant statement there. Super easy and super fast with great results.
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

Sometimes writing songs and producing songs can be difficult. Sometimes you run out of ideas and feel like you have writer’s block and nothing is happening. In this video, I discuss how I had written a song only to realize it wasn’t working and had to re-produce the music to it to make it work. That was a challenge as at first, I wasn’t sure what to do. I explain in this video what I did to get unstuck and write a song that I was happy with. Thanks for watching!
