We talk so much these days about mixing "in-the-box" that we can forget there are other ways to work. PureMix present Grammy-winning engineer Andrew Scheps mixing the song Fly Rasta by the amazing Ziggy Marley totally "out-of-the-box" using only hardware equipment.
In this 2-hour video Andrew Scheps mixes Ziggy Marley's song on his 2 analog Neve 80-series consoles explaining all his decisions, sharing his extensive rear bus parallel compression concept and using the best vintage gems from his world-famous wall of gear.
This video goes deep into the analog world, getting to the roots and origins of compression and equalization techniques and unveiling sometimes-forgotten workflows that will be truly inspiring to all engineers.
This video is the follow-up on the full mix of the same song, done entirely in-the-box then compare the two mixes, download the same tracks from Andrew's session and mix your own!
