I thought I’d try my hand at some funk. No vocals on this one.
Friday night mixing fun! Another Mixing Secrets set of multitracks.
Version 2: I just learned about the Abby Roads reverb technique. This is my first attempt at it on the drum verb and vocal verb.
Version 3: Using 2 compressors to make the mix louder. As well as a modification to the NYE compression technique.
I had a go at another Mixing secrets set of tracks. This time this one was right up my ally…METAL! This one is by Johnny Lokke. http://johnnylokkeband.com/
I was channeling my inner Judas Priest on this one.

I’ve learned a fair bit since I mixed this song back in Feb. I listened to it and thought it’d be interesting to apply some of the new techniques I’ve learned recently.
Thank Glenn for making another set of tracks available for us to practice mixing on. This time I’ve used a few more of the Tracks compressors.
Here’s the youtube post where he talks about the H&K amp.
Thank you to the Unicorn Rodeo guys for providing their tracks on the Cambridge site. The 27 guitar tracks was a real challenge. Hopefully I got the fullness of the guitars in the mix that they were after. Check it out;
I listened to the above on my phone speaker and I didn’t like how the reverb pushed everything into the background. Here’s another version mixed with less reverb.

I wasn’t happy with the mixes above. I made a bunch of modifications from new things I’ve learned. Here’s that version;
It seemed like it needed some sparkle
Glenn Fricker from https://spectremedia.ca/ was gracious in sharing the multi tracks from the video he made about the Coffee Custom Cabs LUNGO. This is the video where he demos what the cabinet sounds like:
Here is my version of the mix;
Tried using some of the Tracks compressors in it.
