RSR390 – Michael Brauer – Brauerize ITB and Mixing With Emotion

"Sonically good without the sonic soul is crap!" Michael talked about why it's the emotional stuff, not the technical stuff that makes a great mix, how to understand multi-bus mix compression, why plugins are fun, and mixing in Atmos on headphones.

My guest today is Michael Brauer a Grammy-winning New York mix engineer. His many credits include "Best Pop Vocal Album" for John Mayer's Continuum, "Best Alternative Album" for Coldplay's Parachutes, and also "Best Rock Album" for Coldplay's "Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends". Other artists include The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Jeff Buckley, David Byrne, Paul McCartney, Ben Folds, KT Tunstall, and Martha Wainwright. He also invented the technique known as 'Brauerizing', in which mixes are routed through multiple compressors and busses to create a blended sound. And he is a co-founder of Mix With The Masters which has been running for over a decade. 

Michael has been a guest on the show previously to talk about his background in music and mixing so please chack out that episode at RSR300. And at that time he had relocated outside the heart of the city in NY to settle into his home studio for mixing. He also completed his journey of migrating his mix template over from a hybrid setup to a full “in the box” method with the help of his engineer Fernando Reyes. Michael created a fantastic course on Puremix.net called Brauerize ITB to teach his mixing setup so you can recreate the whole thing in your home studio if you choose. 

So I am excited to have Michael joining us to talk about his philosophy of mixing and the migration over to mixing “in the box”.

RSR387 – Paul Wolff – Designing Immersive Analog Consoles and Studio Gear [API, Tonelux, FIX]

"Does it go to eleven?" Paul talked about why level matching sucks for a real studio session, Recreating classic doubler and flanger plugins, designing immersive analog consoles, and why you should mix in 7.4.1.

My guest today is Paul Wolff.

In his own words - “In 1972, I was hanging out at a local TV shop, a guy comes in with a Strat with "no sound". The shop owner had no clue, I pulled the jack out and fixed it, the guitar player said "from now on, your name will be FIX…". That was the beginning of my course on the road to the studio to designing. Both parents were in Big Bands during the 40’s, and later my Father was a civil engineer and my mother was a custom jeweler.

A club in Washington DC called the Bayou, I did FOH for such bands as Foreigner, Dire Straits, Pat Benatar, etc. I was the FOH for many showcase bands attempting to get signed.

In June of 1985, I was offered API at a very low price because the current owners wanted to trim the assets so sell the whole company. I purchased the company and opened in a 20X30 foot office, and received a phone call from a guy named Shelly Yakus, looking for API 560 equalizers. Shelly was my first customer and has remained a good friend since. We were a company that grew without any kind of credit line, as we were self funded. Later I sold API and In 2005 I started Tonelux and then in 2012 started FIX Audio Designs, LLC, to make consoles again….

The current product line includes a Stereo input module, a 5.1 input module and an Immersive input module with Object Sends. I am currently the only company in the world making analog Immersive consoles. The console can be fitted with any op-amp/transformer combination to get any console tone you desire. The Stereo input module allows you to choose 3 different tones, and each of the 3 mix busses can have any op amp transformer. The stereo module also has a DAW monitor loop, much like an inline console.

I have also designed products like the Tony Shepperd/A-Designs MIX Factory, The Sunset Sound Tutti Mic Pre, A Lindell input module with EQ and a compressor, Analog Alien EPI universal pedal interface, the Slate VMS1 Mic Pre, the Slate Control monitor system, The new Slate Audio Monitor system, and was involved in the new Slate Audio VSX headphone system.”

RSR384 – James Lugo – How an American Idol Vocal Coach Lost 100 Pounds at 51 Years Old, Regained His Health and Took Back His Mojo!

Are you trying or just lying? James talked about why losing weight, staying healthy, and doing rather than trying, how to eat well and find a daily exercise routine for life in the studio, and vocal coaching tips for being able to hit the high notes.

My guest today is James Lugo singing and playing music since he was 6 years old. His career as a singer / guitarist / songwriter spans decades and coasts. Cutting his teeth in the late 70’s playing in country and rock bands in Fort Lauderdale to headlining LA’s Sunset Strip in the late 80’s, later playing guitar with Dokken and singing with Nazareth. He toured for years, playing and living in Los Angeles, Nashville, and Austin and wrote countless songs professionally in all genres with much commercial success and TV and film placement. 

While living and working in Los Angeles his skill as a vocal coach and music producer began to take off in 2001 when he began working as a vocal analyst and coach with American Idol. He was involved with the show for 10 years and directly worked on the show for 3 seasons. His years on screen and behind the scenes with Idol made him a household name in the Hollywood music and vocal coaching scene and landed him on the rosters of almost every major label as a vocal coach and producer, for many people in the industry he was their go-to guy!

James is also an author writing a book to tell his story of personal transformation called “Swing For The Fence” a field manual on how he lost 100 pounds at 51 years old, regained his health and took back his mojo, and how you can too!

RSR383 – Craig Parker Adams – Mixing Frank Zappa, John Lennon, and Yoko Ono Live at The Fillmore East 1971

What if you could meet your heroes? Craig talked about connecting with Eddie Van Halen to deliver long-lost Van Halen bootlegs, recording his own triple amp guitar setup, hanging out with Dweezil and Frank Zappa, and soloing John & Yoko's vocal mics.

RSR382 – Joe Armin – 4-Track Sessions, and Band Stories From the ’80s With Lij Shaw

Can you really get kicked off an island? Joe shared stories of early band memories with Lij Shaw, recording to a double cassette deck and microphone, capturing great drum, bass, and guitar sounds on a 4 track in a home studio and writing cool lyrics.

My guest today is Joe Armin, a drummer, guitarist, and songwriter and leader of the first band I ever got to play with in St Louis a college cover band called Ayatollah Joe And The Hostages.

“Joe grew up in Cincinnati, and started playing piano, drums and then guitar as a kid.  He started multitracking in his basement in 4th or 5th grade. Joe got addicted to playing in bands and recording one-off tunes. In college during the mid to late 80's at Washington University in St. Louis he played music in a handful of bands, one of his first that started doing paying gigs was a covers and originals 4-piece with yours truly, Elijah Shaw. 

Joe & Elijah got their first studio experience while taking a recording studio course together at college. Joe's focus quickly became writing originals. By senior year he was in a band, Dirt Cousin with friend David Gendelman, cowriting songs and starting to play dive bars and music clubs throughout the St. Louis area. 

After graduating then moving back and forth between San Francisco and St. Louis Joe finally settled in San Francisco for good in 1994 where he currently works as an architect, while still playing gigs and recording at home. He started recording with a handful of friends under the name, The Aerosols, self-releasing a self-titled CD in 1999.  The music was oftentimes noisy and spacey but pop was lurking in the darkness. 

It took several years for a band with a steady lineup to take form.  A trio version of The Aerosols played live in the San Francisco area and beyond from the mid-2000's until Joe's future wife, Amy Fowler joined in 2010, at first on keyboards, but eventually on second guitar and backing vocals also.  This 4-person lineup released an LP in 2014, Fake Mirror, containing angular psych songs which were less shy about embracing melody.  

Amy started her own 5-piece band, Latitude, in 2014 (with herself on guitar and vocals and with Joe on drums and backing vocals) Latitude has had a couple full-length releases, the latest, Mystic Hotline, coming out in 2020 on Emotional Response records.  Meanwhile during all this time The Aerosols have continued to play live and record.  They released their third full-length, the slightly more atmospheric LP, Room for Wrong, in late 2021.  Over the last 14 years Joe has recorded and mixed all of The Aerosols recordings at his and Amy's home studio, Boring Basement Studios, located in San Francisco.  He has also recently provided guest guitar tracks on recordings by James Goode and David Gendelman.

My guest today is Clint Murphy a multi-platinum, award-winning producer, engineer, mixer, songwriter, and musician. He has worked on records as diverse as Manic Street Preachers, Enter Shikari, RØMANS, and 50 Cent, racking up hits both in the UK and internationally.
