MIXING IN THE FAST LANE
Avid is making available online a six-part series of videos featuring producer/engineer Tony Maserati, who reveals his approach to mixing, workflows and more than a few tips and tricks. Of course, it’s all about doing it using Pro Tools, but even if you resist dashing out to buy a HD or HDX system afterwards, watching the videos is time well spent. You get an interesting insight into how a highly-rated pro does his stuff. You can sign up to watch the series here with absolutely no obligation to buy any Avid products — but a warning, you may kind of end up wanting one. Tony is surrounded by all sorts of Avid goodies. You can also play ‘spot the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor’ or ‘name that Neve’.
