Hey Mike,

Is there a way to get a sample of the mix (First single), maybe up to the 2nd verse that you did to see what your mix really sounds like before Mastering?
We could all learn bigtime from that!!!
Also, that would give a lot of people here that mix pop/rock a real world A/B instead of the Mastered version, trying to match levels and mastering compression etc.....

Thanx

Marc

Mike can you tell us about the mixes at all? Specifically how you approached the low end.

Agreed Greg! Good band, great production, great mixes, great master.

What's the back and forth process with Mutt like?

I have had really good results when using Brad Blackwood for mastering projects. He does a great job of retaining what was given to him and is not so loud-happy. Maybe Mike you could speak a little about that process as well after the mixes left your domain?

The body and depth of the mixes are crazy. I don't even do alot of pop stuff but i have started A-Bing to this album anyway. Couldn't hurt!

Amazing low end. So nice to hear a pop/rock record with real bottom end. Great thread!

Hey Greg,

Not trying to hijack this thread I promise! Haha. Just curious...what did you use for synths, guitars, etc on Adam Lambert's "Strut"?

Don't sell yourself short Greg! Your work is awesome. But totally agree, Mike your mixes on the new Maroon 5 are killer. I have always loved your work. Love the first Splender record you did in 1999, which might not be as familiar to many on here.

Mike, I know I speak for everyone when I say we would be so grateful for any tip and tricks you could provide.

Thanks!

Steve

Maroon 5 is not really my scene but the fidelity on this record is beserk! Kudos for the band, producer, and production team getting it "right" in the Alps. Definitely going in my reference library.

I'm also a huge fan of the remix for "If I never see your face again" - off the "Call and Response" remix album.

A+++

I have to buy this also as a physical cd, even though I already got it from iTunes. This is a must-have reference disc for me. Insanely good mixes and overall sound.

I wonder how much the BLA modded 192s affect the end result? I was just announced from BLA that they have shipped me my modded converter... can't wait!

Fantastic work Mike.

Well it's not like we go for a poor bottom end. I'm sure mixing in Mutt or Shipley's personal rooms treated the way they are probably don't cause the ear confusion our rooms do for us. I sure have nailed the low in good rooms.

Just listened to 'Misery', sounds great indead.

Sounds like the bass guitar is 'doubled' and panned L70 and R70 or something with a bit of bass in between. Most of the guitars are high funky chords that won't get in the way of the bass much.

Anyway, I dig the sound.

Mike Shipley's mixes on new Maroon 5

I hope the mystery of how Mutt and Mike get such a great bass tone is resolved in this thread as mine on the 'Mutt Lange Synth Bass' never. Looking forward to some great info, the album is amazing. Particularly 'Never Gonna Leave This Bed'.
