Top class set of videos, both the tracking and the mixing. I'm a newbie and feel I've learnt an enormous amount on my first day. Along with the knowledge, also the confidence to track and mix with greater purpose. Fab is rad.

Great video. fantastic explanations. For me, it's that old thing that gets lost when watching too many 'how to' videos. A great band, solid equipment, and LISTEN! Job done.
