World Music Project

I am mixing an interesting project for a producer out of New York City. The project is called the World Music Project and it is a collaborative effort from more than fifty musicians across the world.

I will be keeping a video diary for the project partly to keep all of the players in the loop in terms of how the mix is progressing. And partly because some of my readers do enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at mixing.

The mix for this project will go through a few distinct phases:

File import and initial prep ”” you can find that video here.
Track management (naming, colour coding, grouping) ”” you can find that video here.
Track remediation for vocals (editing) — today’s video
Track remediation for instruments (editing)
Placement (stereo soundfield)
Processing (compression, EQ, effects)
Automation (levels)
Release candidate mix

Here is the third stage of the project: vocals.

    Both this and the second video in this series, Richard – top notch!

    When does the ‘Learn Pro Tools The Cleaver Way’ come out? 🙂

    Keep up the great work,

      Thanks Rob 🙂

      The videos are a great way for me to share the mix activities with all of the musicians that are collaborating on the project. Lots of work goes into mixing a song.
