New from our friends at pureMix Fab Dupont mixes jazz.
For this particular mix, Fab chose to mix this outside of the box, on his Neve 54 series console, using his favourite outboard gear to craft the tracks and create a cohesive and style appropriate mix.
In this one-hour pureMix.net exclusive, see how Fab:
Deals with bleed from other instruments in the room
Softens “clanky” transients in the piano to create a more style appropriate sound
Uses transformers on his stereo bus to shape the tone of the mix
Adds definition while maintaining a fat tone on an upright bass using high pass filtering and EQ
Adds detail to the fingers of the stand-up bass without adding harshness using a Chandler LTD-1
Does subtle tone shaping on the drum kit and controls excessive transients using a Chandler TG1 Limiter
Adds space using analog reverbs like an EMT 140 and AKG BX10
