Watch Fab Dupont Mix Jazz Out Of The Box

In part 2 of our Jazz start to finish series, Grammy Award Winning Engineer, Fab Dupont, mixes a song recorded in the same session as Part 1: Jazz Setup And Tracking With Fab Dupont .

For this particular mix, Fab chose to mix this outside of the box, on his Neve 54 series console, using his favorite outboard gear to craft the tracks and create a cohesive and style appropriate mix.

In this one-hour exclusive, see how Fab:

  • Deals with bleed from other instruments in the room
  • Softens “clanky” transients in the piano to create a more style appropriate sound
  • Uses transformers on his stereo bus to shape the tone of the mix
  • Adds definition while maintaining a fat tone on an upright bass using high pass filtering and EQ
  • Adds detail to the fingers of the stand-up bass without adding harshness using a Chandler LTD-1
  • Does subtle tone shaping on the drum kit and controls excessive transients using a Chandler TG1 Limiter
  • Adds space using analog reverbs like an EMT 140 and AKG BX10

Watch Fab Dupont mix a Jazz standard out of the box, only on

Excellent, love the extensive A/B comparisons, and as always the extensive explanations! I really like that practice files come with it, would be great to have this on more videos. It would be great to have a few more jazz videos, for example one with a singer and some horns.

I find it so difficult to mix music recorded live, because of the bleed. It was really helpful to watch you make careful and subtle moves 'to enhance what is already there," as you say. (Really nice playing on this track, too. Compliments to the players!)

Hi! I was wondering why you didn't just use the Lynx for both da and ad conversion? Instead of also using the UA converter

Great! All Fab Videos are superb, Pure Mix is a very good investment.
