RSR389 – Danny Reisch – Producing & Mixing Tele Novella, Local Natives, White Denim, and Shearwater

Who wants 20 drum mics? Danny talked about how to mix drums with samples, why a bass amp is best, mixing in Atmos, the Tascam cassette eight-track, how to use compression, and why you should put a single Coles 4038 over the drummer's right shoulder.

My guest today is Danny Reisch a multi-instrumentalist writer, producer, engineer, and studio owner. Originally from Texas, Danny built an incredibly successful recording studio called Good Danny's, where he began to establish himself as a world class producer and engineer. Since then, Danny has moved to LA to pursue more opportunities, including film and TV mixing. Recently, Danny has just finished mixing for the Local Natives EP, as well as LP's for Bayonne and Barns Courtney. In the film scene, Danny has just wrapped score mixing for Disneys "Peter Pan" and Wendy, as well as AMC's new show "Interview With The Vampire"
