Russell Cottier tackles audio topics such as automation, mixing, loudness, recording drums and much more.

Russell Cottier is a producer, audio blogger, and YouTube teacher from across the pond in Liverpool, UK. Russell has worked with chart-topping artists and labels such as The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Sony, Sky TV, Nuclear Blast Records, Tamoki Wambesi Dove, Cavern Records, Playboy Channel and many more.

He works all across the UK and internationally, and can often be found at the Grammy-Award Winning Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, the renowned Catalyst Studios or in his own private studio where he has the luxury of a classic British analog console.

Russell takes what he has learned from the studio and distills it down to audio blog articles and Youtube videos teaching you everything from recording to editing to mixing. What you learn will work on any DAW, but Russell uses Harrison Mixbus in many of his videos. So this is especially cool if you are a Mixbus user.

Today’s episode is going to focus on a very cool topic or perhaps I should say the very HOT topic of how loud your mixes should be. I certainly find it a repeated struggle in my experience during mixing when we are surrounded by so much loud music these days.

So Russell is going to help us tackle the issue of Loudness And The Lost Art Of Mixing. We will start out with some introductions and then dive right into this ever vexing question of loudness.

"Make sure you're recording seriously fun music tomorrow." @russellcottier
