W21 - Pimp Your Mix

Bob Brockmann
Ryan West

Grammy winning mixers Bassy Bob Brockmann (Christina Aguilera, Babyface, Fugees) and Ryan West (Rihanna, Kanye, John Legend) bring a popular feature of their Elements of Mixing seminar, Pimp your Mix, to the AES. Ryan and Bassy take a production that has already been mixed by an upcoming producer and tear it apart and put it back together using state of the art and vintage analog gear and some of their fave plug-ins to add luster, drama, impact, and clarity to the mix. Ryan and Bassy demonstrate some of their tips on how to make the vocal shine, how to organize the bass frequencies, and how to use balancing , eq, and reverb to create a sense of space and clarity in the mix. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions during the makeover process, and Ryan and Bassy will do a Q and A about the mix after the print.
