An All-Encompassing Guide To Recording & Mixing

You can find thousands of recording ‘tips and tricks’ videos on Youtube. – And they’re helpful!
However, these videos rarely give you the full picture.

The real question is: When and why would you apply these techniques?
What would make you choose one technique over the other?

This masterclass is designed to give you an all-encompassing view of what it’s actually like to spend 4 days tracking and mixing a band live at the studio.
– With one of the best engineers in the world at your side, guiding you every step of the way.

Witness how Darrell interacts with the band, discover how to achive maximum impact when recording, learn how to adjust processing chains on the fly, and take productions over the finish line by crafting powerful, radio-ready mixes.

An Engineer’s Dream: Achieve Mind-Blowing Recordings

Have you ever watched a Pro mixing tutorial and felt that it was ‘unfair’ how amazing their source material sounds?

Basically, all they have to do is pull up the faders, make a few minor adjustments, and the mix is done!

– And you would be right: it IS an unfair advantage.

This masterclass teaches you how to capture recordings like that!

Inside, you’ll learn how to record tracks that sound so pristine and powerful that, by simply pulling up the faders, you’ll already be 75% of the way to the final mix.

Darrell spills the beans about his favourite microphone choices for different instruments, teaches you how to utilize mic placement and phase coherence to achieve maximum impact, and shows you how to process your tracks on the way in, so you can capture your most sophisticated recordings yet.

Discover How To Craft Professional, Radio-Ready Mixes

Now that we’ve layed the proper foundation by capturing exteptional recordings, it’s time to dive into mixing!

Darrell mixes all 3 songs in real time, and shows you the techniques you need to create exciting mixes, which will take your listeners on a musical journey.

The best part about this is that Darrell doesn’t use any outboard equipment.

– Which means you can apply the exact same techniques he does, and achieve amazing results in your home studio!

Look over the shoulder of a pro mixer, and make his ‘purely in-the-box’ approach your own.

  • Efficiently mix multiple songs with similar instrumentation
  • Achieve maximum impact by properly aligning phase
  • Create a massive lowend
  • Achieve a punchy, 3-dimensional drumsound without using samples
  • Keep your vocals clear & present in the mix
  • Set up a huge soundstage by blending multiple layers of guitars & keys
  • Create tension and excitement in the song by using automation
  • Add the final glue and polish to your mix using Masterbus processing

Mixing can often feel confusing, there a simply so many options!

Darrell’s process will make it easy for you to focus on what really matters: the big picture and enhancing the emotions of the song!

Adopt A Lightning-Fast Workflow

Have you ever wondered why it takes professional engineers only 1-3 hours to deliver a final mix, when most of us spend 8+ hours, or even days?

One thing we’ve already discussed is recording quality, which we’re covering in detail in this course.

However, there’s another factor at play.

These engineers have an insanely well-structured workflow, are using templates and shortcuts, which allow them to navigate the session at lightning speed, and focus on the big picture, instead of getting lost in technical details.

In this Masterclass, Darrell shows you how to utilize groups, busses, VCAs, and track templates, so you can focus on your creativity and mix fast without wearing out your ears.
