It seems some may be missing a fundamental part of recording songs that even the best mix engineer may not be able to fix.
You may remember that back at the winter NAMM show (January 2016) I was totally blown away by the new Waves Nx software which is the first application to bring personalised 3D sound to any pair of headphones.
They say if you don't want to be criticised then do nothing. There is some truth in that, but I'm sure like me that you would rather try and make a dent in the universe than live in fear of sometimes getting it wrong.
How much of a gear head are you, we ask the hypothetical question, if you were offered an SSL mixer for free with some conditions would you use it instead of mixing inside of Pro Tools?

In this video from MusikMesse 2016 James talks to Tom Waterman from Audient about their new ASP8024 Heritage Edition console. Tom takes us through many of the updates to this legendary British mixing console from upgraded look of the console to the amazing new mix buss compressor. The Heritage Edition really does take this mixing to a new level.
We at Pro Tools Expert are very excited to have a pre Musik Messe (which starts in Frankfure, Germany next week) Exclusive. Our friends at Audient are celebrating the success of their flagship ASP8024 console with the launch of the ASP8024: Heritage Edition. The definitive version of the classic David Dearden design.
In this video Pro Tools Expert meet Sam Bath from Solid State Logic (SSL) about the XL-Desk, a 24 into 8 into 2 analogue mixer. As a studio owner who is actively looking for a console for his studio, James was very keen to get hands on with the XL-Desk and see if it has got what it takes to fit in with his Pro Tools workflow.
Sam shows James around the channel strip of the console and they talk about its signal path and routing options. Could this be the console that James has been looking for to use with Pro Tools?
PureMix have just launched an amazing promotion for the pair of Andrew Scheps mixing tutorials where he mixed the same Ziggy Marley song completely analog (using his twin Neve consoles) and then again entirely in the box using Pro Tools. It’s over 4 hours of learning from one of the most respected mixing engineers in the industry and this is the perfect time for you to grab both videos together for half price compared to buying them separately. But hurry as this special offer only lasts until March 13th 2016.

Based on Waves SoundGrid technology, this software mixer delivers the superior sound quality for which Waves is renowned, as well as the quick and convenient workflow needed in demanding live environments.
I am going to join the vocal-chain party. To be completely honest, I don´t have a special chain that I pickup every time I am going mix. I have several different templates for mixing rock, pop and hiphop that I have been doing by myself during the years just to get a quick start when opening up a session.
I frequently get asked by my clients about how they can best deliver their projects to me over the internet for me to mix. Online music mixing services have become very popular in today's music industry, yet I find so many people get the whole 'sharing a project' thing wrong.
