In this pureMix.net exclusive, Grammy Award Winning Engineer, Andrew Scheps, breaks down his stylized mix of The Heavy’s “Since You’ve Been Gone”.
When The Heavy sent the multitrack over to Andrew, it had a lot of attitude and direction already baked into the recording. See how Andrew takes tones that were intentionally distorted and mangled and works to enhance the original vision of the artist to create a mix that is full of vibe and attitude.
During this two and a half hour tutorial, Andrew will show you:
The useful difference between compression and limiting
How to make the choice between compressing and limiting
Highlight the unique characteristics of individual tracks
How to tackle instruments like Baritone and Tenor Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet, Glockenspiel, Piano, Pipe Organs and more to work cohesively and fit into an aggressive rock mix.
How to add density and size to drums using Andrew’s famous “Rear Bus” technique.
Learn how to enhance the artist’s vision to create a stylized, unique and excitingmix, 100%in the box, from Andrew Scheps, only on puremix.net

I’m at a stage in my early career where I feel like saying the hell with! I’m doing nothing right.
And I always come to PureMix. Thanks Andrew for putting things in perspective! 🙏

Awesome as always. Always looking for what you route to the rear buss, sometimes has a reverb with the band. Thanks sir.

very interisting way to mix the drums!!

I enjoyed the process, as Andrew's workflow template really offers an immediate sound that is exciting to work with. I did feel that, although I watched his template video, some of the routing in this project seemed quite different and wasn't really covered, so I'm wondering about how the vocal parallel processing was laid out exactly. But this has taken me further in the journey. Thanks

This might be my favorite video on the site so far.
First, I loved the end where Andrew talks about his creative approach on the middle 8 and production elements. I'd love to see a video of Andrew doing tracking and production.
Second, I loved that some of the tracked material was maybe not so perfect. Sometimes when they were soloed I thought "wow that sounds rough". In some of the other videos (Ziggy, Zac Brown) it's like every single track was immaculate, and that's not the kind of sound I'm getting tracking in my bedroom, so it's cool to see how that can work.
Thanks Andrew! Love this.

Perfect video, but why exercise files tracks are only 2:13 minutes length?

Thanks a lot to show such great ideas! Of course this filter thing is so amazing and the part with raindrops. It has open my eyes in some way.

The logic of laziness prevails again! Another top notch video from Andrew. @AScheps quick question: looks like the guitar bus was routed through the kit bus. Was this inherited and did it inform your decisions at all?

Wow! Once again Andrew Scheps is the man. Such an excellent communicator as well as mixer. This video is another goldmine. It’s interesting that every time Andrew does the same/yet different thing.
