In part one of this epic installment of the Pro Member Mix Fix Series, Fab Dupont opens up the session for "Bayou Ingenue" by Mark Conner to discover the task ahead.

After reviewing the session, Fab calls Mark to discuss his thoughts and form a plan for the next two days to elevate the track.

With a plan in place, he taps on first-call studio musician, Dave Zerio, to re-track drums, percussion, and organ on the track.

Watch as Fab:

  • Opens up the session for "Bayou Ingenue" to hear the tracks for the first time
  • Calls pureMix ProMember, Mark Conner, to discuss his plan for the project
  • Explains the entire drum setup with Dave Zerio and produces Dave's performance through the track
  • Records the drums, organ, and percussion using only affordable mics and no outboard gear
  • Works on the approach to the groove with Dave to find the right pocket for the drums
  • Reviews the drum takes with Dave and creates a comp
  • Edits the track to fit with the new tempo and groove of the drums
  • In Part 5, Dave Zerio gives an in-depth breakdown of how a Hammond organ operates.
  • Records and produces passes of the Hammond organ
  • Adds Tambourine to the track

This is your chance to join Fab Dupont in the Dangerous Room at Flux Studios NYC as he forms a plan from scratch, and works with one of his first call session musicians to help elevate "Bayou Ingenue".

Awesome video! Really great to watch Fab and Dave doing their magic! The "Start to finish" vibe is really there. I'm a huge fan of the Hammond B3. It is because of Rhoda Scott, the bare foot lady, that music has been a big part of my life for 50 years now. This late 40' B3 is a jewel. Cannot wait for the part 2! Thanks guys!

Man I hope it gets tighter. I don't know if playing ahead and "modern" was a good choice on take 1 so far.

Excellent Fab. Right up my alley but having to do it all myself.. e.g. drums/setting up and mixing. Great drummer for that song. Nice work.
