Danke für dieses großartige Video. Super erklärt . Für mich persönlich ist der Einsatz der UAD Plugins immer ein Genuss, weil ich so viel über deren Einsatz lerne. Bitte mehr Videos dieser Art.

This is more “finishing touches”, not mixing a hip hop track.

Listen...this mofo is aces! Not a mix I expected to come across on here. RIP to Hussle. Like he said: legend. Beyond music. Mr. Rich, you're killin' it!!! Please more deconstructions from you, my man! Exactly the approach we all benefit from. Straight at the neck, concise and eloquent.

I didn't know Clark Griswold's brother was in to mixing, nice.
Joking aside this is very cool!

Loved this! Great tutorial! Made me think, Inside the Mix 'Retro' could be an idea. Hearing Rich talk about 'Slippin' made me want to hear the inside THAT mix.
