In this Puremix exclusive, Joe opens up the multitrack and breaks down the mix while explaining how the decisions for the final shape of the song began in pre-production and how there were executed through the final mix.
Watch as Joe:
Explains the process he and the band went through from pre-production to the studio and why he thinks pre-production is one of the most essential steps in record making
Demonstrates his approach to adding drum samples to a song
Shows each of his three drum parallel busses and explains how he used them on different sections of the song
Breaks down each source and parallel chain on the bass guitar and how he blends them to craft the final tone
Goes through each guitar track and how he added life to their tones with EQ and time-based effects
Breaks down his approach to the lead vocal with multiple parallel compression busses that fill in dynamic gaps and craft a powerful vocal that commands attention from the listener
Explores each of his vocal effect chains and explains how he created dynamic reverbs and delays that add exciting moments throughout the track
Goes piece by piece through his meticulously designed stereo bus chain, from the converters to summing bus, to outboard Chandler Curve Bender, Shadow Hills Compressor, SSL Fusion, back into Pro Tools via his Burl Bombers A/D converter

A great master class (simple and complicated at the same time) and the idea of applying parallel compression to the chorus is great. The vocal setup is incredible, very creative and nothing I have seen before.

I love Joe's work.
He is one of my favourite Producer / Engineers, Fabulous track and love the treatment on it. Joe, always gives great insight and depth, as to his approach, his setup and through to recording and mixdown. He is a true master of his craft and so humble to.
Its a great privilege and feels like you are being mentored by the best, as with the access to all these leading lights in the industry.
I shall watch this many times and absorb all that i can.

Nice video. I love this band, but this album is definitely my least favorite. I don't know...Joe is great at what he does, but I think my preference is a little less effects driven than the sound he goes for. Well done video though.
