BASS

“ANYONE WHO KNOWS MOTÖRHEAD KNOWS THAT THE MOTÖRHEAD SOUND IS LEMMY AND LEMMY´S BASS TONE. THE GOAL WAS TO BUILD THE WALL OF SOUND THAT IS WHAT LEMMY IS.”

“Things were never normal with Motörhead, things were never normal with Lemmy. Working with Motörhead changed my world of what I thought was acceptable in recording and mixing. There was no longer a rule. The new rule was: How do I make that sound work in a song?”

– Cameron Webb

“Lemmy had a very unique style of playing bass: He didn’t play it like a bass – he played it like a guitar.”

DRUMS

LEARN HOW TO MIX POWERFUL DRUMS THAT CUT THROUGH A DENSE ROCK MIX, ADD EXCITEMENT AND CARRY THE GROOVE OF THE SONG.

Drums can often be the hardest part to get right, especially in dense rock mixes:

Your drums have to cut through huge layers of electric guitars, sound full, punchy and energetic, while blending well with the bass and not overpowering the vocals. Better yet, you want them to sound huge which can be tough with guitars covering up your reverb or room-sound.

Plus there are tons of options:

You have to find the right blend and mix lots of different mics to create a cohesive sound for your drum kit.
Where do you start?

There can be phase issues, which cause a loss of energy, bleed between different microphones, which will make your drums sound less defined. How can you counteract or even notice these issues?

Should you tweak individual drum tracks in solo, or should you mix all-tracks-in from the start?

Do you want your overhead mics act as cymbal mics or cover the full drum kit? Should the kick or the bass dominate the low-end? Are you going to use compression, parallel compression, drum bus compression?

… You get where this is going.

Get insights into the thought process and learn the techniques of an accomplished pro:

Cameron has a lot of experience in producing and mixing huge sounding drums for a variety of amazing rock bands and will walk you through his complete process of achieving the sound he´s looking for.

VOCALS

LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES OF LEMMY’S UNIQUE VOCAL SOUND

“I grew up loving Motörhead´s album “Orgasmatron”. It’s not your regular Rock record. It’s pretty wild and free, it always sounds like a train wreck is happening. So with this song I thought: Let’s let it be weird and free and fun and interesting.”

To capture the uniqueness of the band and recreate the feel of earlier Motörhead records, Cameron decided to take an unusual approach to Lemmy´s vocals with this song:

Instead of recording a single lead vocal, he recorded two different performances and panned them hard left and right.

“I wasn’t approaching the song in a normal way. I wanted this one to be a little weird.”

You´ll gain great insights into Lemmy’s process of songwriting, approach to making music and recording.

Cameron shares a lot of great stories of how he interacted with Lemmy and the band and gives tips for dealing with artists and getting them to perform the best they can.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR TUTORIALS:

For a long time I really struggled to get everything to sit well in a dense mix, but watching these guys go through each track step by step really showed me the problem areas in my mixes and I was able to go back and fix them.

I´m now much more confident in my skills as a mixer.

After being a member of Pro Mix Academy for only a few months, my mixes are sounding much better and more professional. I´m able to get more work and mix songs for various artists by using the songs as pieces in my portfolio.

– Clayton A., Producer/Musician/Artist

The tips and tricks that I learned allowed me to save a home recorded mix I was ready to give up on.

The easy going delivery also makes it easy to digest the information they’re giving you and sit through hours of tutorial at a time.
