BONUS CONTEST

 

Well this is a treat.  “Summer song”, by Clint White and Tom Robinson, is a masterclass in song-writing, performance, and recording.  I’m not sure a mix has ever come together this fast for me!  Wearing a heavy Steely Dan influence, this “yacht rock meets country” tune just sails along, with beautiful natural dynamics that can only be delivered by seasoned session musicians.  This is the kind of production that could literally be mixed entirely with automation and perhaps a dab of ambience….but suit yourself!  Hope you all enjoy this month’s Bonus Contest.

SEPT 2022: “NEXT TO YOU”

MIX CONTEST #1   I think this song might have the best recorded vocals we’ve had so far at T-M.  In fact, the entire production is super well recorded – one might say a “no excuses” mixing scenario (although like any mix, it has its challenges!).  “Next to you” was produced by Chris Cassriel and…...
