In this video, Fab mixes a trio recorded live in real time conditions. This is a full mixing tutorial, top to bottom where the main challenge is to manage the bleed that has been captured in every microphone and the limitations of very close miking.

This tutorial focuses on the limitations of handling every single track individually when a lot of bleed in involved, like concert recordings or full band recordings in one room, and shows you how to use bleed to your advantage.

Done in Pro Tools, during the Audiodays seminar , the tutorial features the new Avid channel strip, Softube and Flux plug-ins. Fab also uses hardware from Tube-Tech PE 1C Equalizer, Tube-Tech CL 1B Compressor, and Dave Hill Design Titan Compressor.

Will Knox gives a rousing rendition of his song "The ship and the storm" accompanied by drums, and cello.

The attached zip file contains the original uncompressed files of the session. Please download it and import these files in the DAW you use to make music. This way you can practice your skills and mix this song using your own tastes, tools, plug-ins and the guidelines provided in this video.

I really enjoyed this one. Maybe because it was the style of music I play, but it dealt with problems that I have face in the studio.
