On Instagram, Bob Clearmountain takes to video to accurately describe the difference between Multitracks vs Mixing Stems. He’s right. Stems (or mixing stems) are subgroups of tracks, typically a stereo track whereas Multitracks are individual tracks of a mix. It can be a tongue twister with all the “M’s” but think of “tracks” as individual channels/tracks and “stems” as groups of channels/tracks. I have made the mistake of saying “mix stems/mixing stems” as opposed to multitracks. Not the end of the world but it can be confusing when you want to know what you’re actually getting.
In this video, we go over the drum and bass processing for the Mixing Horns 2 video. We go into detail on the eq, compression, and reverb used. Taking the drums from dull to hot and spicy…..ok, maybe just hot.
