A Masterclass in Hit Making
Joe takes you through the full recording and production lifecycle, starting off with tracking and co-production on days one and two, and moving through to engineering and mixing on day three and beyond. We captured this whole event on film for our special course so you can benefit from Joe’s wisdom, experience, and musical ear.
You’ll learn invaluable skills for setting a band up, tried and tested mic placement techniques, how to setup studio hardware, how to get work with a band, how to take that to mix, and everything in between. This is not just about learning to “Fix it in the Mix” – this is about getting your entire workflow set so you can focus on great music production and work through a complex arrangement with ease. Joe will teach you how to Mic up a your drums, your amps, your whole recording room for balance and for optimum dynamics. As he runs through the setup for each musical instrument he discusses the challenges of recording for Dolby Atmos, how best to place overhead mics in a room, and discusses the pros and cons of different mics he has encountered over the years.
Glass Bandit offer up funky crisp drums, fat bass, lush keys, clean and driven guitar grooves, a horn section, and some soulful vocals to the studio. Joe Carrell helps guide them to get the best from their performances – always with a healthy measure of good humour and instinctive talent management. Watching this process in real time is beyond fascinating for anyone interested in improving their production and mixing skills – these are skills that have taken decades to hone – and you can benefit from them with this one-of-a-kind course!
