    Man he goes lighting fast when setting up SUM sent to PRINT track in order to A/B raw tracks and producers mix, can anyone explain how exactly this works, I see his routing, but not adding up I’m my mind as to how to is achieving what it’s achieving.

    Man... I know I know... this is old Im late... but im so enjoying. I have a question: why is the parallel Drum Bus mono? Is this protocol?

    Nice tuto as usual, lot of things to learn, though I'm not absolutely conviced by the sonic result. To my ears, it sounds like an artistic option which doesn't dare to choice in between classical soul and a most modern mixing. But pleeeeeeeease Puremix , stop with these kind of (badly) hidden partnership with manufacturers and undertake them more frankly No one will reproach you for this as long as it's clear and assumed. The skit with successive pedal plugins was pathetic and really painful. This attitude spoils the high level quality of your training programs. Just my 2 cts ;)

    Hi, I really love puremix tutorials, I learned so much and always have fun to ! So, dear premix team, I have a request... since I am more and more interested by the use of microphones, depending of the type of room, the choice for the song, the choice of the microphone etc... I would love to have a bit more information on the sessions you are mixing in your wonderfull tutorials (for example a small comment with: acoustic guitar: two microphones at... distance, a U87 on the shoulder and a royer r121 on 12th fret, kick drum: a beyerdynamic m88 inside and a whatever outside, etc). Cheers !

    I can't find Avid Space plugin in PT. Don't think that's a stock plugin. Or am I blind? Also, Mike's rough mix isn't in the download files. I'm new to Puremix, perhaps it's supposed to be like this?

    Great video. Always interesting to watch Fab's choices and see that all the necessary processing is built right in to Pro Tools. Some very good production tips as well.

    Very nice tuto; simple and effective. It's so easy to be a mixer! :)) Always amazing to feel what you don't say in the video, something called "experience" I guess. The way you always go to the rights tools, the right frequencies etc… So nice you share with us!

    Also, If i'm listening to this song while i'm driving with an average volume I will go crazy and make an accident! the vocals is annoyingly ear piercing!

    Obviously Fab has great knowledge and experience. This also was a helpful video in some ways... but we all know you're not gonna release this mix! It's so apparent that Mick G's rough mix has a much nicer top end specially on the hi-hat and I guess that's just because his used a better EQ... I truly appreciate the effort you guys make to put such great information on your site and I have learned a lot since I discovered puremix but please stop indirect advertising as you charge me to let me watch your videos! plug and mix, pro tools stock plugins that we are truly stuck in, Dangerous music...

    Why not making a Studio One stock plugin video? ;)

    Chapter 3 is in mono...just so you know =)

    Ok. Something just caught my eye and ear in this tutorial. It's when Fab works with the phase on drums (kick!). He delay the kick by 300samples which seems right BUT that time alignment still leaves the kick in and OH 180 degree out of phase. Wouldn't it have been even better to delay the kick in AND reverse the phase? That's what I would have done anyway.... And the SUBKICK is also 180 degree out of phase with the kick in and kick out. Am I missing something? Thanks anyway for great stems and videos! Cheers /Toby

    There really couldn't be a better teacher than Fab. He puts philosophy and decision making in front of all the technical stuff, but explains the little details when it's important.

    Ooooh I remember this NYC session very well. Mick Recorded it so well.
    2017 Aug 06
    This is great. If possible could you do a dance record sometime?

    The unique!
