I was pleasantly surprised to see that Bob Clearmountain posts here on Gearslutz as MixShmix:
Creatures of the Night Drum Sound
That post is funny because some dude is talking to him without knowing who he is and BC has to introduce himself: “The name’s Clearmountain.” Jaws drop.

Any plans for a mixing course Mr. Clearmountain [email protected] ?

You have to change the whole approach.

CLA and his mixes are what they are.
It´s just I like Bob Clearmountain´s better.
But that guy hardly gives interviews nor does he do mixing courses.
I know I know.
But I don’t think cla compresses that much. Vocals and some parallel drum bus. Some on bass and gtr. But his sound is not so organic. A lot of samples etc

I bought the first CLA masterclass, and I found it pretty helpful. I will probably get this one too. Here is a recent song I just released, and I incorporated some of the techniques I learned from the first course, check it out if you get a chance: Spotify Web Player - One More Time - Simple Forces

CLA being a super heavy compression fan is a myth which is clearly revealed in this second course!

Hope you guys jump on it, only one more week at intro pricing. If you don't think it helps your mixing, I'll refund you.

Cheers,
Steven

Any chance u could post a link of that? I wouldn’t be shocked if he thought that but really surprised if he said it publically due to his affiliation with several plugin companies.

Don't claim things like that, without a prove...

CLA loves plugins. I remember him saying something like "they're getting a bit too good, it's scary".

But above anything, he clearly makes a hell of a mix with plugins or hardware, and that's where his technique becomes so fascinating.

Steven

@ Steven Slate hey Steven,

when you produce/tracking/mixing/test plugs etc you of course use speakers monitors and different systems and testers.

But what kind of headphones do you use to complement your checks?
I am in for a pair and I'd like to hear you perspective/experience on it, if possible.

Thank you in advance.

First, the song was tracked more independently so CLA is starting from something more home-brew and raw.

Second, there is an entire section of the course revealing his pre-Mix process. Very in depth, and very valuable.

Third, we filmed him mixing in real-time. See his pace, his thought process, how much he solos, how much he switches monitors, and witness HOW he tweaks.

Last, the Mix technique analysis is much more in depth. We really dove in deep.

Cheers,
Steven

I checked out the course.

Makeing the console E Mixbus simulation nearly constantly hitting the needle hard right was a big surprise to me, just backing it off a little helped the mix to open up a little. (OMG I did it.... I criticized GOD HIMSELF CLA)

To be true we cant discuss taste.
To my ears most CLA mixes sound overley bright and this one is no exception, I never liked it, but I believe that I can learn something from every person working with passion.

Here is what I learend from the Videos and the mix template.

Most impressive to me was that CLA is not shy to check out extreme settings.

Lesson learend mixing 80% of the time the full band is playing.

Soloing in Groups was very intresting.

He was not shy to let the LV stand out for a long time; my impression was he mixed the rest of the band around the lead vocal??

Impressive also is how close the digital and analog mix is...

In the mix AB I think B sounds a little more harsh, with lightly harder transients than A but I cant say which one is which.

I like A better becasue it sounds more round to my ears.

I wont thorw my hardware out of the window becasue I know it very well and I still belive in that some HW outclasses some plug ins in mix time.

I love working hybrid becasue its so easy to use the I/O plug in.

If you are into that modern rock sound its maybe one of your best investements ever.

I just hope to see courses by other guys too and not only that modrn rock approach.
I would love to see Albini doing a mix 90s stile.

L&P
Another Happy Slate Customer.
