In part two of this epic installment of the Pro Member Mix Fix Series, Fab Dupont takes the tracks he recorded with Dave Zerio and edits them together with the new tempo and groove before completing an epic mix of "Bayou Ingenue" by Mark Conner and friends.

Watch as Fab:

  • Produces NYC session musician Dave Zerio through takes on the Hammond Organ at Flux Studios
  • Brings the session back to the Fabulous room and preps it for mixing on his rig
  • Edits the bass, guitar, and vocals to fit in the pocket of the new drums at the new tempo
  • Sculpts the low end of the song by eq-ing the bass and kick and adding parallel compression for a full and punchy low end
  • Puts the band in a similar space using the Universal Audio Oceanway Studios plugin
  • Adds depth to the percussion groove by using the Waves One Knob Pumper
  • Checks the bottom of the mix on headphones
  • Uses the Universal Audio ATR102 tape machine to add texture and dimension to the bass guitar
  • Tries a more aggressive approach to the stereo bus compressor for a more glued together mix and A/Bs the results while explaining his choice
  • Calls Mark Conner and plays him the mix for his final feedback

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."
