In Episode 10, Douglas and Matt mixed the same song, “Ambitions” by All Hands Lost. The raw multi-tracks for this were obtained from “The ‘Mixing Secrets’ Free Multitrack Download Library”, located at http://www.cambridge-mt.com/ms/mtk/. This site is a companion resource site for Mike Senior’s book “Mixing Secrets for the Small Studio”. In this episode, Matt and Douglas discuss approaches to mixing the same song, specific challenges discovered, vibes they were going for, and their own independent set of self-imposed restrictions for the intention of practice and improving mixing techniques with unfamiliar tools.
In Episode 9, Douglas and Matt discuss getting started recording on a $1000 budget. Whether in your bedroom or in a studio, you can record at a professional level. Don’t wait, get our there in your garage and in the storage locker, sell that old stuff. Hit the pawn shops, check your local and online retailers for B-stock, barter and trade until you get the gear you need to record your music
