As more and more producers work in the box and as technology and production tools improve, it’s possible to almost completely produce a track at home. But without the right acoustic treatment and those special high-end bits of kit and plugins, that final 20% of the mix – the difference between a pro and amateur-sounding song – can be hard to reach.
Stem mixing – the process of mixing a track from a series of bounced-to-audio parts – is becoming more popular, sending your parts to an experienced engineer in order to take it to the next level. In the second part of our exclusive series on stem mixing, producer and engineer Rob Rox (Lupe Fiasco, Banks, Munk) looks at mixing synths in Logic Pro X. Watch the video above and make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel so you don’t miss part three.
