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