See how Fab Dupont:

  • Opens the delivered files and sets up the session from scratch with his preferred way of routing tracks and organizing the session with folders
  • Sets up his analog 2bus chain and explains the gain stage of his Pro Tools system
  • Cleans up the low mids of the kick drum and adds a corner to the high pass filter for punch
  • Adds width to the 808 bass with a Roland Dimension D
  • Makes space for the bass drum and bass synths to coexist in the low end
  • Creates a Kick/Snare Parallel bus for extra punch
  • Creates a side-chained reverb using an EMT 250
  • Checks the intention of the rough mix against his current mix
  • Discusses when he uses clip gain versus compression
  • Inserts his stereo bus chain to try out different pieces of outboard gear such as his Dangerous BAX EQ and Compressor, Smart Research C2 Compressor, Manley Stereo Pultec EQ, Neumann EQ, and API 2500

This is your chance to sit next to Fab Dupont as he crafts his mix of "How I Feel Inside" by Mr. Emotional.

I miss using those headphones, they remind of the ear test head phones they use to have in school. Unfortunately one side is bent.=(
