Mix Off Time! In this video Fab Dupont and John Paterno duke it out live in front of an audience. They are mixing the same song with the same tracks, the same speakers, in the same room at the same time with the same rig.
What is the difference? Philosophy, workflow, tricks, and vision. A mix off like this one is the only way to really see the impact of the human element on the mixing process.
This video features Fab Dupont and John Paterno, another Grammy-winning engineer, mixing a song called "10,000 Footsteps", performed by the great South-African band The Arrows. They both mix the song, taking 10 minute turns, using laptop computers, ProTools HD with a Universal Audio Apollo 16 interface and outboard gear including Universal Audio 1176s, and a complete Dangerous Music back end featuring a Dangerous BAX EQ & Monitor ST. They used Focal speakers.
Using a variety of hardware and software sound treatments, the two mixing engineers truly make magic happen. As the video progresses, Fab aims for a lush-sounding approach, achieving a sense of space and presence, while John is looking for a more rock'n'roll tone, by adding some grit and punch to the tracks. Who do you think will win ? It does not matter. This one is about the journey, not the destination.

Great video! I would love to mix this myself but there is no downloadable session files like you use to have in other mix videos.
Is there any way to get the files?
All the best!

Hi guys. The 'less than pureMIx' protools capture picture quality is due to the fact that this was a public real time event and that we did not control the capture. We felt it would have been a shame to censor the whole series for that reason. Obviously the rest of pureMix instudio videos have flawless video quality.

Hi Fab and John,can you tell us how was set the 1176 hardware for parallel BD and SD process.

I Have a question about Groups in pro tools. I use Pro tools 11 and when I make a group it doesn't show me the option to link the change in the plugins. are you using Pro Tools HD? or Pro Tools 10?

Great concept! I had a good time watching you play like kids^^
Only one complaint: the video quality is not great so I cannot see in detail what you do because it's too blurry! Sound is missing low-end too.
Does every "PureMix" video has the same quality?

Sorry for these previous sliced comments, folks. (please edit)
Great show and a lot of experience shared inside. But what happened with Protools captures ??? They are totally blured, it's really a pity : there's a lot of useful informations lost therefore, and it's really nasty to watch this scenes.
By the way, regarding current Gearfest Raffle, I'm really not sure this video is the best one to promote the quality footage of your other products , from a newbie point of view who will tests and start with this one. Don't you think so at PureMix?
My 2 cents, with kind regards and bleeding ey
