""Hot Fuss" recording and mixing

Hi Mark!

Welcome and thanks for taking the time out to chat!

Can you give us give us a bit of detail around the recording and mixing of "hot fuss"?

Was it tape or PT/Daw?

How did you approach the mixing especially the drums as Ronnies drums really punch !

Hot Fuss

Hot Fuss was recorded at a small studio Jeff Saltzman and I had in Berkeley and also at my place in Los Angeles. It was recorded to Pro tools with a couple of Neve sidecars for pre amps. Most of what I mixed was done on an SSL G except for Mr Brightside , which was mixed on an eight channel Neve sidecar right after it was recorded in less than an hour.The production is fairly sparse on these tracks , which allows the drums to really cut through. Other than that it is pretty close to what I do now in the box with multiple EQ and parallel compression buss's.
