Michael Brauer - New York, NY, USA

Mixing—- From Rough Mix To “Yogi”

Michael Brauer is an accomplished and eclectic mixer with mix credits that include Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, The Rolling Stones, Aimee Mann, Coldplay, Ben Folds, and John Mayer’s critically acclaimed CD “Continuum.” Michael will talk about some key aspects of mixing that cannot be purchased in a box, whether hardware or software—the human aspects. How do you prepare yourself to mix a song that you are hearing for the first time? How do you balance the power of sitting at the console with the need to remain humble when discussing the song and mix with the artist? How do you work not only with the tracks, but also with the needs and personalities of the band, manager, and A&R? How do you make the leap from a mix that just documents the song, to one that brings out its spirit and message? Michael will also talk tech about his multi-stage/multi-buss mix technique and also show how to adapt it to mixing “ITB” with Pro Tools. He might even explain the term “Yogi.”
