Questions covered this week:
- You always say Get It Right At The Source, and that no amount of compression or EQ will fix a poor recording. Is this true with drum samples? Will a bad kick sample be as hopeless as a poorly recorded kick track?
- How would you approach mixing vocals with a stereo backing track rather than having all the instruments on separate tracks?
- How do I add harmony to some vocal tracks? Are there any tricks you’ve learned that could help? Any resources out there that you would recommend?
- Whose job is it to determine the length of a song – the engineer or the mixer?
