How do you mix five sub-bass tracks??? Sara talked about sidechain compression, managing the low end in mixing, exciting drums, mixing modern classical music, dynamic eq, split eq, and transient shaping, and why you should create Youtube videos too!

My guest today is Sara Carter a BBC trained, mixing engineer based in Basingstoke in the UK. She started recording and mixing music in the mid-’90s from a small home studio until eventually landing her dream job working from the famous BBC's Maida Vale Studios and Broadcasting House in London.

Sara has worked with a wide variety of recording artists from Beyoncé and The Black Keys to The Cure and Rod Stewart and has been credited on records by Corrine Bailey Rae and KT Tunstall amongst many others.

She now runs an online mixing business Music Mix Pro in the UK working with unsigned bands from all over the world. And she has a fantastic fast growing Youtube channel called Simply Mixing! Sharing tips and tutorials, writes for the Production Expert blog, and has appeared on many of the Production Expert podcasts. I've also been interviewed on the Working Class Audio podcast and the Recording Studio Rockstars podcast for episode RSR204 where you can learn more about her backstory.

Thanks to my brother from another podcast Matt Boudreau for making our original introduction! You might even hear Saras voice on the intro to Matt’s show.

Turn it up to eleven! Weston talked about recording rock guitars, playing movies and video games in the studio while recording, committing through an analog console eq on the way into Pro Tools, and dialing in the perfect kick drum sound with Peavey.

My guest today is Weston Wellman an artist engineer and music producer in Nashville TN. 

“I like to record bands and play music.  So if you want your band recorded or enjoy listening to music, consider me an option for one, or both of those things.  The louder, the weirder, the crazier, the better.” 

I actually met Weston through Instagram in 2021 when I got my Behringer Model D analog synth (modeled after Moog) and was so into it that I was posting and browsing IG videos of synths. Weston was also sharing some killer sounds with his synths, pedals, and cassette four-track, and making killer sounding heavy records with his band Noise Relay.

It also turns out that we are connected both through Nashville and Mike Purcell over at County Q studio. Mike was actually the very first guest back on episode RSR001 so how cool is that?

I’m psyched to talk to Weston today about making fantastic sounding heavy rock records with his bands Noise Relay and Sleepercab, creating wild and weird sound in the studio using guitar pedals, synths, and whatever else sounds cool.

My guest today is Matt Boudreau a mix and mastering engineer for bands and solo artists. He is the producer and host of the podcast Working Class Audio interviewing other audio professionals about their journey to where they are today. Matt also tests audio software for Universal Audio as a contractor and speaks on audio panels at conferences as a moderator/and or panelist. In general, he loves anything audio-related, and also loves coffee and connecting with forward-thinking people in all industries.

Matt has been involved in music and audio for 35 years starting out as a drummer working his way through bands and six-figure record deals. He was lucky to experience firsthand how records were made on a high level with producer/engineers like Larry Hirsch, Joe Chicarelli, and Gil Norton and these guys got him excited about the record-making process.

In 1994 he began his journey to the “other side of the glass”; trading drum sticks for faders. That journey has taken him through a series of amazing recording experiences with many well-known artists as well as many lesser-known artists. 

Now Matt reaches studio fans all over the world through his podcast, is a published author, and also teaches mixing courses over at Working Class Audio. He has been on the podcast early on episode RSR053 and I am psyched to have my Brother From Another Podcast back to share some cool tips on mixing awesome pro-sounding drums using plugins and sample triggers in your DAW.
