Event Description

May 11,2017



We went to Los Angeles at The Echo Bar studios to shoot this unparalleled  mix breakthrough. In this video Bob doesn't hide anything, he shows you every single detail while explaining why he did what he did. Are you still not 100% sure when it's about boosting, cutting, or when to add parallel compression instead of serial compression? Watch and listen while Bob explains how to interpret and treat every single track in the mix. In this seminar Bob mixes a song from the artist Jennie Laws, and the song not yet released is called, "All about you". You will get a chance to see the mixing process before the song is actually released.
