Pre...and production


How much to you 'pocket' for your own studio in vox recording, guitars etc

and how much do you then 'redo' from the original 'arrangement' at the 'fancy' studio

How many times have you said '**** it' and pocketed the whole fee and done everything at 'your's'

and, how many times have you really pushed the boat out and ended up out of pocket from really liking something and pushing it further just 'cos you wanted to??

And, out of 10, how many times have you sent the tracks out to be mixed by a 'mix guru' and been impressed by how good you are (apparently) 'cos they did such a good job!! And, how many times has the 'super mix' guy done a **** job......

I tend to keep about half the productions and mixes in my "protools" studio. The other half I mix at a big commercial "Euphonix & SSL" studio.
I always record everything except drums at my place, so I don´t redo anything at the bigger studio.

I also had some of my production mixed by hotshot mixers as Dave Way and Rob Chiarelli, but ended up with my own mixes.... I don´t know what to say.....

Who´s the best pop/rock mixer by the way.....?? and how much does he charge per mix?

i record almost everything exept drums and large string and horn sessions on my home hd3 rig...i go to an ssl room to record a live rythem track...recently i have been mixing at home and getting fine results...never did that with the mix system but with hd i find i can get away without the console...sometimes i still get the urge to go to a studer and track then dump to protools..just finished doing that...will still mix at home...clients like that because i include the price of my saves them lots....

I use large studios for tracking only. It's a treat for my bands to be able to 'spread out'.

I CAN make a whole record at my place and often do - drums & all...

My favorite place to mix is MY studio. I don't need to go to a 'big studio' to mix.

I have sent material off to 'big hitter' mix specialists,

Dave Bascome - UK rock specialist
Brad Gilderman - US R&B specialist
Terry Manning - US R&B specialist
Chris Sheldon - UK rock specialist
Alan Moulder - UK rock specialist
Steve Bush - UK producer

In each case, it has always been a relief to get someone else to do it...

A fresh perspective is healthy, anyhow, mixing is my least favorite stage of production.
